Like a summer squall, baggy had blown into the British music scene, and then just as quickly dissipated, leaving behind a short-lived rainbow of technicolor records. Very short-lived. Indeed, the non-charting fate of the Farm's preceding set, Love See No Colour made the band's time especially short, which probably explains Hullabaloo's overwhelmingly downbeat feel. Much of the set is given over to introspective numbers, beginning with the power ballad "Comfort," and continuing along its downtempo path through the moody "To the Ages," the wistful "Golden Vision," the brooding "Distant Voices," the melancholic "The Man Who Cried," and the haunting "Echoes." All are lovely in their own way, but they were never going to excite fans or the charts. But dig deep and there's an oasis or three of brightness -- the anthemic "Messiah" and the techno driven "Hateful" both recall the Farm's happier harvests, while the rocking "All American World" is solid gold. With more moments like those, maybe the Farm wouldn't have gone bust. But, in truth, baggy was finished, and the band with it.

Album Description

Like a summer squall, baggy had blown into the British music scene, and then just as quickly dissipated, leaving behind a short-lived rainbow of technicolor records. Very short-lived.

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.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
