Florence + The Machine's 5th album sees frontwoman, Florence Welch, question her relationship with her art and to femininity. "You need to go to war to find material to sing / I am no mother, I am no bride, I am king" she sings in King, the opening track built around an incredible musical crescendo. This album takes modern-day life and wraps it up in a medieval fairy-tale aesthetic, with the British singer extending the theme of feminism to such a point that she almost seems to celebrate freedom in the broadest sense. This celebration is accompanied by the kind of dance that can lead to death by exhaustion (Free). The track Choreomania seems to be a reference to tarantism, a psychological illness that causes an extreme impulse to dance that was rampant in the Middle Ages. Co-produced by herself and Jack Antonoff (Lana Del Rey), the combination of contemporary themes and vibrant music make Dance Fever a fantastic listen. However, Florence Welch isn’t always fighting on the front line, she can also reveal real vulnerability and softness (for example, in the ballads Girls Against God and The Bomb). She’s equally happy to venture her way into wild and bewitching lands in Prayer Factory and Heaven Is Here (a track bursting with crazy musical ideas). Kate Bush is a clear influence throughout this release, which unexpectedly concludes with a tribute to Elvis Presley, one of Florence Welch’s idols (Morning Elvis). ©Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.
