A Murder of Crows, the second album by Dead Soul Tribe, carries further the ideas introduced in the group's debut. Devon Graves' lyrics determine the atmosphere shifts in the music (pretty dark in general) and his guitar drives the band into progressive metal territory. This conceptual album revolves around the idea that crows carry the souls of the dead to the afterlife. So what happens to souls that crows were unable to get to? This plot can lead to very routine places, but Graves develops it intelligently and without letting it become a prison. Lyrics are occasionally pretentious, but in general they work well with the guitar-heavy rock of the band (the lineup has been augmented by Roland "Rollz" Kerschbaumer on rhythm guitar, for extra crunch). The opener, the two-part "Feed," sets the parameters very quickly, presenting the soft and rough sides of Dead Soul Tribe. After that, there won't be any surprises, but you will encounter a few strong melodies, especially in "The Messenger," "Crows on the Wire," and "I'm Not Waving." For "Black Smoke and Mirrors" the guys take out the acoustic guitars to deliver a sweet-and-sour song topped in its heavier section by a fluttering flute solo. The last song, "Time," is identified as a bonus track, but why it shouldn't belong to the "main" part of the album remains unclear. Maybe because it has a lighter feel.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

The 1000 Faces of Bowie

David Bowie, star and genius, never stopped reinventing himself throughout his fascinating, shape-shifting musical career. A unique case in the history of rock.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.
