Everybody Wants to Be on TV, the second album by British pop trio Scouting for Girls, is as light and breezy as its predecessor and is loaded with sure-fire hit material, though it does nothing to impress the legion of critics who have slagged the band for its unimaginative approach to radio-friendly pop/rock. While Scouting for Girls garnered more than their fair share of disparagement from critics in the British press, there's no denying that the band proved remarkably successful from a commercial standpoint. Scouting for Girls (2007), the band's eponymous debut, topped the U.K. albums chart and spawned a trio of Top Ten hit singles ("She's So Lovely," "Elvis Ain't Dead," "Heartbeat"). In hopes of repeating the success of their debut album, Scouting for Girls took their time writing Everybody Wants to Be on TV. It was reported that bandleader Roy Stride scrapped an entire album's worth of material in 2008 and went back to the drawing board in his aim to write "the perfect pop song." The problem is that the ten songs on Everybody Wants to Be on TV are too perfect. They're well-crafted, for sure, and practically all of them are primed for mainstream pop/rock radio play. Take for instance the lead single, "This Ain't a Love Song," which shot straight to the top of the U.K. singles chart upon its release. Its appeal is immediate. One listen is all it takes. Unfortunately, in Stride's aim to write perfect pop songs and hitmaker Andy Green's bid to produce tunes as tailor-made for the charts as last time, the songs on Everybody Wants to Be on TV tend to resemble one another as the album advances. Give or take novelty touches like the Auto-Tune on "Little Miss Naughty" or some memorably clever turns of phrase on "Posh Girls," these songs are interchangeable. Their charm wears thin with each passing track, and Stride's hit-making approach becomes increasingly plain in the process. In the end, it's something of a blessing that Everybody Wants to Be on TV is over and done with in a mere 34 minutes' time. Scouting for Girls are, at their best, as a singles act.

El boom del blues británico, crónica de una revolución

Si Joe Bonamassa regresó con British Blues Explosion, un año después del Blue And Lonesome de los Rolling Stones fue porque el boom del blues británico resultó algo más que una simple tendencia… Más que una simple tendencia musical, el interés de una joven generación por los grandes iconos americanos del blues ignorados en su tierra, generó una auténtica revolución dirigida por tres principales agitadores, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck y Jimmy Page, considerados más allá del Canal de la Mancha nada menos que como la «Santísima Trinidad» de la historia del rock o de la guitarra. Aunque no fueron los únicos músicos involucrados, fue a través de sus respectivas carreras desde las que se descubrió que el blues, lejos de ser una música que había pasado su fecha de caducidad desde hacía mucho tiempo, era como un salto hacia otras dimensiones musicales que permitía múltiples innovaciones.

Jimi Hendrix, el cielo ha terminado de esperar

A pesar de una carrera relámpago, Jimi Hendrix dejó un patrimonio de grabaciones casi infinito. Prueba de ello, la publicación de Both Sides Of The Sky, una nueva compilación inédita de cinco estrellas. Pero, ¿qué esconde este cofre del tesoro?

Pedro Almodóvar, al compás de la música

En el cine de Pedro Almodóvar la música ha tenido siempre una enorme importancia, ya sea en forma de estudiada selección de canciones conocidas o de composiciones originales. De este modo, parece haberse aplicado a sí mismo cierta fórmula extraída de uno de sus primeros trabajos, Entre tinieblas: «La música es la que habla, la que dice la verdad sobre la vida.»
