Futures

Jimmy Eat World

Rock - Released September 17, 2021 | Interscope

The massive success of Jimmy Eat World's 2001 Bleed American propelled the band into the mass-culture spotlight, with the hit single "The Middle" seemingly popping up in every third movie released and the group turning in an energized performance on Saturday Night Live. Many, many groups followed in their wake, crafting a similar blend of melodic, anguished punk-pop and leaving Jimmy Eat World in the position of crafting a follow-up that set them apart from their acolytes. Futures gets around this dilemma in two ways. First, with the help of producer Gil Norton, the band polishes its sound until it shines like a slick '70s arena rock record. The guitars are stacked like thick diamonds, the vocals are way out front and buttressed by sweet harmonies in the choruses, the drums sound large, and the mix is loaded with sweetening from acoustic guitars, keyboards, and female vocals. In the process, they sacrificed the immediacy of the previous record, but they gained an epic and weighty feel. Secondly, the lyrics are much darker and more mature, including themes that revolve around politics, drugs, and despair. The piano-and-feedback ballad "Drugs or Me" and the bittersweet love song "Night Drive" are the products of age and experience the band lacked until now. The best song on the record, the very Disintegration-era Cure-sounding "23," seems like it was recorded by a different group entirely. Some things have remained the same, however. Jim Adkins' vocals are as intense and heart-tugging as ever, and the band still writes hooks that will have you singing along before the song is half over. "Just Tonight," "Futures," and the AC/DC-sampling "Pain" are all trademark Jimmy Eat World punky pop/rockers with anthemic choruses, while "The World You Love" and "Work" display the sweetly melodic side of the band. There are a couple of stumbles (the decision to replace Petra Haden's charming vocals with Liz Phair's, the generic "Nothingwrong"), but they don't detract from the overall power of the record. Futures will most likely not be the sensation that Bleed American was -- it is too dark and inwardly focused for that -- but it shows a progression of sound and emotion that fans of the band should embrace. © Tim Sendra /TiVo

Dawn Of Chromatica

Lady Gaga

Pop - Released September 3, 2021 | Interscope

Hi-Res
Enlisting a dream team of queer (and queer-adjacent) future-pop and electronic artists, Lady Gaga mutates her critically acclaimed, return-to-the-dancefloor album Chromatica, revealing that 2020 record's elemental origins with the fascinating Dawn of Chromatica. Fostering the talents of some famous Little Monsters who came in her wake, Mother Monster is freed of mainstream pressure by these wild, sometimes noisy, and always thrilling reimaginings. While not as easily accessible to a casual listener, the rewards are plenty for both fans of Gaga and the impressive guest roster. From Venezuelan avant-electro wiz Arca's exploratory deconstruction of "Rain on Me" -- which twists her own "Time" and "Mequetrefe" into the mix -- to the synth pop bliss of Planningtorock's take on the ballad "1000 Doves," there's a surprise around every turn (and often within a single track). Pabllo Vittar plants a sunny island kiss onto "Fun Tonight," somehow making the sad lyrics even more tragic, as rapper Ashnikko injects some bubble-pop, hip-hop edge into the defiant "Plastic Doll." Meanwhile, Mura Masa and Shygirl bring a throbbing "Sour Candy" to the club and Dorian Electra slashes "Replay" with metallic riffs and menacing growls that would make Poppy proud. Of the many highlights, British pop star Rina Sawayama liberates "Free Woman" with buoyant and inspirational flair; Charli XCX and A.G. Cook revive "911" as a pulsing digital epic; and the trio of Chester Lockhart, Mood Killer, and Lil Texas offer Dawn's most chaotic remix with "Sine from Above," a near-IBM monster complete with cartoonish sound samples, a sax solo, and a crushing breakdown that finally delivers on the surprise drum'n'bass outro of the original. In moments such as these, the genius of this project is revealed through Gaga's trust in the remixers and their own respect for her source material. If Gaga had released this LP as the official version of Chromatica, it might have been one of the boldest artistic moves in her already dizzying career. Instead, presented as the daring and liberated sibling to a more traditional predecessor, Dawn of Chromatica unlocks an expanded world of potential and reminds her legion of Little Monsters that she still has a finger on the pulse and isn't afraid to take risks once in a while. © Neil Z.

Devil's Night

D12

Hip-Hop/Rap - Released June 18, 2021 | Interscope

It's tempting to dismiss D12's debut album, Devil's Night, as exploitative juvenilia, similar to how fellow Detroit hardcore rap acts such as ICP and Esham had been treated in the past. In fact, it's hard not to dismiss this album as shock rap because that's exactly what it is -- there's no denying it. As witty as Eminem may be -- and he's by far the most creative member of the group -- the countless forays into theatrical perversity far outnumber the more literate moments. But to dismiss the album strictly because of its themes would be unfortunate. As challenging as it may be for many to stomach the constant and incredibly explicit sex, violence, and drug references, there is a stunning album lurking beneath that deserves recognition. Functioning as the album's executive producer and as the producer for most of the album's beats, Eminem has done a wonderful job crafting this album and its foreboding feel. Influenced by the style of sparse beats Dr. Dre employed on Eminem's past solo hits, the troublemaking MC's beatmaking steals the show here, particularly on the album's standout moment, "Purple Pills." In fact, Eminem's beats often contest the couple equally impressive tracks that Dre contributes. Besides the remarkable production, Eminem also showcases his songwriting genius on several of the song's hooks, bringing a catchy pop-rap approach to hardcore lyrics. Yet no matter how accomplished this album is from a production and songwriting angle, it's impossible to look past the disturbing lyrics, especially those of Bizarre, and also Eminem's moments of unnecessary instigation. This album is obviously targeting those with a taste for perversity. If that means you, then you'll love this; if that doesn't mean you, then the album is still worth investigating, if only for Eminem's show-stealing performance as not only an MC but also as an adept producer and songwriter. © Jason Birchmeier /TiVo

No One Sings Like You Anymore

Chris Cornell

Alternative & Indie - Released December 11, 2020 | Interscope

Chris Cornell spent a portion of 2016 recording a covers album, assembling a ten-song sequence for a record that would be released at a later date. Cornell died in 2017, so the covers album wound up as No One Sings Like You Anymore, a record released in 2020 as a tribute to the departed singer. As posthumous albums go, No One Sings Like You Anymore may not bear any great revelations, yet it's an effective, even moving, testament to his skills as a singer and musician. Cornell does revisit several quite familiar tunes -- classic rock staples from Harry Nilsson ("Jump into the Fire"), John Lennon ("Watching the Wheels"), Electric Light Orchestra ("Showdown"), and Guns N' Roses ("Patience") anchor the album -- but he also digs up Terry Reid's "To Be Treated Right," adds a selection from Austin's electronica act Ghostland Observatory, and cuts three songs from the Jerry Ragovoy songbook, including "Get It While You Can" and "Stay with Me Baby." Collected, the songs are simultaneously familiar and surprising -- a blend that always was among the chief attractions in Cornell's work -- and while there are echoes of the original recordings here, he shapes each tune to fit his voice and contemplative bent. The inherent power in Cornell's voice can still be heard, but what lasts is the passion and intelligence, emotions that make this a bracing if bittersweet experience. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Chromatica

Lady Gaga

Pop - Released May 22, 2020 | Interscope

Hi-Res
According to Lady Gaga, Chromatica is an imaginary planet, a utopia that concretises her search for happiness. "I live on Chromatica, that is where I live. I went into my frame - I found Earth, I deleted it. Earth is cancelled", she said during the promotion for this sixth album, released less than two years after the global success of the soundtrack for A Star Is Born. Chromatica's sci-fi concept naturally steered the singer towards electronic music, tinged with concise and melodic pop. She not only surrounded herself with experienced producers (BloodPop, Burns, Madeon, Axwell...), but also with "extra-terrestrial" guest stars: Ariana Grande (Rain on Me), the K-pop band Blackpink (Sour Candy), and - with a large generational gap - Elton John (Sine From Above).On this flamboyant pink outfit-filled planet, Lady Gaga displays herself as a warrior fighting her own demons, as well as external threats, especially those that overwhelm her fellow-women (Plastic Doll, Free Woman). Her weapon of choice? The most "stupid" love there is, which she clamours for in a cathartic and liberating way (Stupid Love). As the queen of binary bass drums and boundless joy (Fun Tonight), she also has a calm side, especially in three lyrical and majestic instrumentals (Chromatica I, II and III). As the title suggests, Lady Gaga's planet presents an entire spectrum of colours, just like the singer's resolutely colourful soul. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
