Lenny Kravitz must have realized he bottomed out with the turgid Circus, so he decided to shake things up a bit on its follow-up, 5. Like any veteran in the late '90s, he dabbled in electronica, adding a few trip-hop loops and analog synths to his bedrock rock n' soul. It's enough to make 5 sound relatively fresh, at least compared to the retro dead-end of Circus, yet it sounds like Kravitz read about the idea of electronica without actually listening to any music. Anemic synths and stilted drum loops (sampled from Kravitz's playing, not old records) are scattered throughout the record, along with vaguely distorted vocals. It's not enough to make Kravitz sound hip, especially since he still loves endless funk jams and electric sitars, but it does revitalize his sound. At least for a little while. By the end of the album, his songwriting sounds as tired and unmemorable as on Circus. Without hooks, melodies, and style, Kravitz's Sly, Mayfield, Hendrix, Lennon, and Prince pastiches are a bore. 5 has a few passable cuts, yet it falls short of the quirky hero worship and melodic smarts that made his first three records so enjoyable.

Led Zeppelin : 50 ans de rock

Led Zeppelin a fêté en 2018 les 50 ans de sa formation. Après avoir marqué l’histoire du rock en douze ans, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant et John Paul Jones se sont retrouvés plusieurs fois sur scène et en studio depuis la mort du batteur John Bonham en 1980, avec plus ou moins de bonheur. Retour sur les différents come-back de Led Zep.

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.

10 légendes du blues

Le 21 juin, on célèbre les 20 ans de la disparition d’un des rois du blues : John Lee Hooker. Mais le géant n’a pas emporté le blues dans sa tombe. Cette musique enregistrée depuis plus d’un siècle continue à irriguer toute la musique pop, et à produire de grands disques (comme le dernier album des Black Keys). Il est temps de réviser les classiques, en dix portraits de bluesmen historiques, dont une blueswoman.
