Arriving on the heels of the much-celebrated 2020 documentary How Can You Mend a Broken Heart—a warm-hearted look back on the career of the Bee Gees and, more specifically, the Gibb brothers—this duets album has a lot to live up to. The end results, however, are hit or miss, as Barry Gibb (the only surviving brother) teams up with a slew of country artists on the group's biggest songs. Highlights include "Too Much Heaven," which pushes the right buttons from those first bars of easy listening perfection. With Alison Krauss taking Barry's higher melody part, there's a balance and easy trade-off that brings to mind Barry's best duets with Barbra Streisand. Keith Urban, smooth and sweet, sounds like the lost Gibb brother on one of the Bee Gees' earliest hits, "I've Gotta Get a Message to You." And Rival Sons' frontman Jay Buchanan brings a true-blue soulfulness to "To Love Somebody"— but ends up overshadowing Barry. Age wears well on some voices. But when the voice was heaven-sent falsetto perfection to begin with, time is a heartbreaker. Which makes "Words," Barry's duet with Dolly Parton—herself a high-in-the-clouds songbird in her younger years, including when she and Kenny Rogers had a hit with the Barry-penned "Islands in the Stream"—a humbling, bittersweet listen. The same goes for "Rest Your Love On Me," with Olivia Newton-John. But there are bright spots where Barry fits in comfortably, including a twangy take on "Words of a Fool" with Jason Isbell and "How Deep Is Your Love," which finds him hitting the high notes and embraced by Little Big Town's butter-rich harmonies. The majestic "Run to Me" starts with Barry sounding top-notch as Brandi Carlile—her honeyed croon as excellent as ever—joins in for Robin Gibb's gilded part on the chorus. When she jumps up a register or two on lines like "And when you've got nothing to lose," it's chill-inducing and Bee Gees-worthy. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

Album Description

Arriving on the heels of the much-celebrated 2020 documentary How Can You Mend a Broken Heart—a warm-hearted look back on the career of the Bee Gees and, more specifically, the Gibb brothers—this duets album has a lot to live up to. The end results, however, are hit or miss, as Barry Gibb (the only surviving brother) teams up with a slew of country artists on the group's biggest songs. Highlights include "Too Much Heaven," which pushes the right buttons from those first bars of easy listening perfection. With Alison Krauss taking Barry's higher melody part, there's a balance and easy trade-off that brings to mind Barry's best duets with Barbra Streisand. Keith Urban, smooth and sweet, sounds like the lost Gibb brother on one of the Bee Gees' earliest hits, "I've Gotta Get a Message to You." And Rival Sons' frontman Jay Buchanan brings a true-blue soulfulness to "To Love Somebody"— but ends up overshadowing Barry. Age wears well on some voices. But when the voice was heaven-sent falsetto perfection to begin with, time is a heartbreaker. Which makes "Words," Barry's duet with Dolly Parton—herself a high-in-the-clouds songbird in her younger years, including when she and Kenny Rogers had a hit with the Barry-penned "Islands in the Stream"—a humbling, bittersweet listen. The same goes for "Rest Your Love On Me," with Olivia Newton-John. But there are bright spots where Barry fits in comfortably, including a twangy take on "Words of a Fool" with Jason Isbell and "How Deep Is Your Love," which finds him hitting the high notes and embraced by Little Big Town's butter-rich harmonies. The majestic "Run to Me" starts with Barry sounding top-notch as Brandi Carlile—her honeyed croon as excellent as ever—joins in for Robin Gibb's gilded part on the chorus. When she jumps up a register or two on lines like "And when you've got nothing to lose," it's chill-inducing and Bee Gees-worthy. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

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.
