Lionel Richie wasn't necessarily emboldened by the success of Can't Slow Down -- after all, he had experienced huge success since the Commodores -- but there is nevertheless a sense of swagger on its 1986 successor, Dancing on the Ceiling. This isn't entirely a good thing, since it means he indulges in silliness (the title track) and sappiness ("Ballerina Girl") in equal measure, seemingly without quite realizing how ridiculous either extreme is. Maybe that's because he still has a strong sense of popcraft, something that makes "Dancing in the Ceiling" stick in the head even if its lyrics are awful, something that makes "Ballerina Girl" work for a slow dance even if it is awfully sugary. This dichotomy is evident throughout the record, as Richie pulls out good music even if he indulges all of his worst impulses a little bit too much. He adds a bit more dance to this album, and while the grooves are funkier than anything since the Commodores, they run on too long -- at eight minutes, "Don't Stop" takes its title command far too seriously. This same tendency is apparent on the ballads and slower songs, which all stay around a little longer than they should, something that gives the impression that this record is a little less focused or consistent than the two blockbusters that preceded it. While it is true that there is nothing here nearly as good as the hits on Lionel Richie and Can't Slow Down, it also is true that on a track-by-track level, it's more consistent, never having resorting to the formless filler that peppered those two otherwise excellent records. This is a good thing, but it would have been better if the record had boasted one or two undeniable singles, or, if it didn't, would at least have been a little tighter. That said, Dancing on the Ceiling is a solid, enjoyable affair -- a comedown after the peaks of Lionel Richie and Can't Slow Down, and one that suggests that Richie needed the extended break he took after its release, but a good record all the same. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

El Prince de los 80

En la familia del funk, Prince Rogers Nelson fue un género en sí mismo. En sus 40 años de carrera, logró mezclar el legado de los padres fundadores (James Brown, Sly Stone y George Clinton) con otras influencias que han ido desde el rock’n’roll hasta el electro e incluso el jazz. Un groove exuberante y espectacular que brilló esencialmente entre 1978 y 1988...

«Thriller», anatomía de una obra maestra

En 1982, con «Thriller», el disco más vendido de todos los tiempos, Michael Jackson rompió las fronteras entre estilos, razas y público. De alguna manera, se convirtió en el primer y último disco transgénero... Pero especialmente fue un álbum que transformó totalmente la industria de la música popular del siglo XX.

Nat King Cole, un rey amado por todos

Intemporal e idolatrado, en el mejor sentido de la expresión, Nat King Cole habría cumplido 100 años el 17 de marzo de 2019. Elegante pianista y crooner de aterciopelada voz, entusiasmó al público mayoritario en las décadas de los 40 y 50, sin dejar de cautivar a los fanáticos del jazz con su innata sofisticación. En un mundo de testas coronadas, el rey (Cole) supo hacerse un sitio entre el duque (Ellington) y el conde (Basie).
