America's debut album is a folk-pop classic, a stellar collection of memorable songs that would prove influential on such acts as the Eagles and Dan Fogelberg. Crosby, Stills & Nash are the group's obvious stylistic touchstone here, especially in the vocal harmonies used (compare the thick chordal singing of "Sandman" and "Children" to CS&N's "You Don't Have to Cry" and "Guinevere") and the prominent use of active strummed acoustic guitar arrangements (contrast "Riverside" to CS&N's "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes"). America's intricate interplay of acoustic guitar textures is more ambitious than that of their influences, however. Performance quality is usually good, though on occasion sloppily executed or out of tune (especially on the openings to "Donkey Jaw" and "I Never Found the Time"). Lengthy instrumental introductions ("Donkey Jaw"), middle improvisatory interludes ("Here"), and closings ("Clarice") are frequently encountered. Most of these selections boast highly unusual and inventive chord progressions that work well without drawing undue attention to themselves. Lyrics are sometimes trite ("I need you/Like the flower needs the rain") or obscure ("He flies the sky/Like an eagle in the eye/Of a hurricane that's abandoned"), but the music more than makes up for any verse problems; only the odd "Pigeon Song" seems an unsalvageable misstep. Sound quality here has a covered, intimate feel that lends a ghostly aura to this release. Chart hits from this album include the spectrally loping "A Horse with No Name," the squarishly tuneful "I Need You," and the nervously dour "Sandman." Other highlights include the buoyantly charming "Three Roses," the yearningly lovely "Rainy Day," and the quietly ringing "Clarice." In spite of its flaws, this platter is very highly recommended.

Le monde selon Peter Gabriel

Porte-drapeau du rock progressif britannique avec Genesis, Peter Gabriel, qui fête ses 70 ans le 13 février, est devenu le champion de la world music et la figure de l’artiste engagé à travers son label Real World, la série de festivals Womad et bien sûr la protest song “Biko”, passée à la postérité via la tournée de concerts Amnesty International. Retour sur le parcours d’une pop star pas comme les autres.

Know your Lemmy

Le 24 décembre 2017, Lemmy Kilmister aurait fêté ses 72 ans, dont plus de 40 à la tête de Motörhead, le groupe de rock'n'roll le plus bruyant de l'histoire. Un cancer foudroyant a finalement emporté celui qui était devenu une icône que l'on croyait immortelle, tant sa disparition avait été maintes fois annoncée puis démentie. Motörhead, qui s'est logiquement éteint avec lui, aura donc traversé quatre décennies avec des hauts et des bas. Et surtout beaucoup de malentendus, sans mauvais jeu de mot en rapport avec la puissance sonore dégagée sur scène...

L’âge d’or du death metal américain

Sous-genre sulfureux du metal, souvent rejeté, parodié ou mal interprété, le death metal a néanmoins su conquérir le public au fil des décennies. Apparue dans les années 80, cette musique continue d’évoluer, depuis la recherche de l’ultraviolence des débuts au plus récent métissage avec d’autres genres plus mainstream. Petit retour sur ses origines, avant un second volet qui s’intéressera à la scène suédoise.
