At first glance, The Love Songs Album is a smartly assembled collection of Chris de Burgh's biggest ballads and soft rock hits, featuring such staples as "Missing You," "Here Is Your Paradise," "Much More Than This," and "The Lady in Red." Upon further inspection, the collection begins to fall apart. There are re-recordings of favorites like "If You Really Love Her" and "Separate Tables," as well as new songs like "So Beautiful," "It's Me," and "Forevermore." A few of the new recordings work well, but the fact is, The Love Songs Album would have worked better -- and would have been more valuable -- if it was a straightforward compilation instead of being half retrospective, half new material.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

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.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
