It is here, on this 1977 blockbuster, that Steve Miller shored up his "Space Cowboy" moniker and cosmic persona: from the winged horse on the album cover to a judicious smattering of synthesizers in the music, Book of Dreams bridged the gap between blues-rock and the indulgences of prog rock. Things do go awry when Renaissance Faire whimsy takes over clunkers like "Wish Upon a Star" and "Babes in the Wood," but luckily the balance of the record offers a satisfying blend of meaty blues and country riffs and tasteful atmospherics. The well-known suspects include "Swingtown," "Winter Time," and "Threshold," with relatively straightforward rock & boogie highlights coming by way of "True Fine Love," "Jet Airliner," and "Jungle Love." The non-hit cuts, "Sacrifice" and "My Own Space," do stand up to these FM favorites but fall short of making the album something the casual fan should consider with Miller's Greatest Hits 1974-1978 in hand (that collection includes seven tracks off of Book of Dreams, plus all the hits from The Joker and Fly Like an Eagle). Still, this is a highlight of the '70s classic rock era and one of Miller's finest releases.

Interpol, fondu au noir

À l’aube des années 2000, à l’heure où le garage était roi, le quatuor new-yorkais devenu trio détonnait en ravivant le romantisme au noir d’un post-punk 80’s.

Nick Cave, mauvaise graine de star

Nick Cave et ses Bad Seeds restent l’une des aventures les plus prolifiques de l’ère postpunk. Dès la fin des années 80, le magnétisme caverneux du chanteur australien atteignait un certain paroxysme, entre reprises furibardes, ballades au piano et rock’n’roll en sueur. Au fil des ans, le Cave s’est fait de plus en plus crooner, entre Frank Sinatra punk et Johnny Cash austère...

Leonard Cohen en 10 chansons

Difficile de sélectionner les dix meilleures chansons de Leonard Cohen. En cinquante ans de carrière, le plus célèbre des songwriters canadiens, décédé en 2016, a enregistré beaucoup plus que dix titres mémorables. Pour donner un aperçu de l’évolution artistique du chanteur, Qobuz a sélectionné une chanson par album, de “Suzanne” en 1967 à “You Want It Darker” en 2016.
