Named after the Finnish word for "dreams," Unia was Sonata Arctica's fifth and heretofore most controversial studio album, being that it found the group experimenting with novel songwriting techniques, and diverting from the straight-and-narrow of their career path for the first time. Problem was, these new elements mostly served to subvert the group's extremely competent and popular power metal formula with unprecedented doses of commercialism -- likely due to band leader and chief composer Tony Kakko's recent taste of pop success through a song he wrote for the winner of Finland's American Idol equivalent. Whatever the cause, this sudden change of direction sparked a veritable war of words across the Internet among their fans, which was somewhat ironic if you consider that Sonata Arctica's material was always relatively predictable -- just heavier and faster. Change is change, though, and the familiar presence of a few semi-fantastical lyrical themes ("For the Sake of Revenge," "Fly with the Black Swan") and overly dramatic ballads ("Under Your Tree," "Good Enough Is Good Enough") apparently wasn't enough to make up for the sudden disappearance of those rapid-fire power-thrashers of yore (flashes of which can nevertheless be heard in album standouts "Caleb" and "The Harvest"). And yet, if one were to come upon Unia without the prejudices of expectations past, they would probably appreciate the unquestionable hooky immediacy delivered by anthemic heavy rockers such as "Paid in Full," "It Won't Fade" and the brilliantly named "My Dream's But a Drop of Fuel for a Nightmare." So perhaps time will show that Unia's change of approach, and the heated debate it spawned, really were much ado about nothing, but first time arrivals will still want to pick up one of Sonata Arctica's earlier releases if they want a proper introduction to their prevalent power metal template. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Objetivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

Álbum clave en la discografía de Pink Floyd, The Dark Side Of The Moon es el fruto de una elaboración relativamente lenta que se remonta prácticamente a 1968. A Saucerful Of Secrets (la canción principal del álbum del mismo nombre) fue, para Nick Mason, el punto de partida. Un tiempo más tarde, Ummagumma permitió la expresión de unas personalidades que se tendrían que amalgamar para conseguir el éxito. Pink Floyd continuó su búsqueda del disco ideal con Meddle, en el que la banda acentuó su dominio del trabajo en estudio, y Atom Heart Mother, antes de alcanzar el nirvana con The Dark Side Of The Moon, cuya perfección aún no ha sido nunca erosionada cuarenta y cinco años después de su lanzamiento.

Alice Cooper no esquiva el peligro

La trayectoria de Alice Cooper es un caso excepcional de duplicación de la personalidad. Al igual que en El extraño caso del Dr. Jekyll y Mr. Hyde, el cantante Vincent Furnier se somete al dominio del showman Alice Cooper. Pero según él mismo confiesa, quien habla todavía de Alice en tercera persona en las entrevistas, sigue siendo un hombre muy simple y normal en privado, lejos de esta escena en la que ha multiplicado excesos y provocaciones. A lo largo de sus cincuenta y cuatro años de carrera, podemos además descubrir algo de esquizofrenia en sus muchos cambios de estilo. Si le atribuimos la invención del shock rock, ha tocado todo, o casi todo, con más o menos éxito, desde pop hasta hard rock en sus comienzos, pasando por heavy metal, new wave o rock industrial…
