Sitting atop the charts in 1975, Elton John and Bernie Taupin recalled their rise to power in Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, their first explicitly conceptual effort since Tumbleweed Connection. It's no coincidence that it's their best album since then, showcasing each at the peak of his power, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin's inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving. What's best about the record is that it works best of a piece -- although it entered the charts at number one, this only had one huge hit in "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," which sounds even better here, since it tidily fits into the musical and lyrical themes. And although the musical skill on display here is dazzling, as it bounces between country and hard rock within the same song, this is certainly a grower. The album needs time to reveal its treasures, but once it does, it rivals Tumbleweed in terms of sheer consistency and eclipses it in scope, capturing John and Taupin at a pinnacle. They collapsed in hubris and excess not long afterward -- Rock of the Westies, which followed just months later is as scattered as this is focused -- but this remains a testament to the strengths of their creative partnership. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Elton John : les 10 premières années

Que reste-t-il de la première partie de la carrière d’Elton John ? Une discographie foisonnante, un nombre incalculable de tubes, le tout dans un décor exubérant aux recoins parfois sombres. À l’occasion de la sortie du biopic qui lui est consacré (“Rocketman” de Dexter Fletcher), retour sur les années 1970 d’un artiste généreux.

Comment Kanye West a renversé le hip-hop

En vingt ans, Kanye West a plusieurs fois changé le cours du rap et influencé comme très peu de ses contemporains la pop de son époque. Il a collaboré avec Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, Daft Punk ou Rihanna, relancé les carrières de Jay-Z et Common, révélé Kid Cudi ou John Legend et est une influence majeure pour des artistes tels que Childish Gambino, Drake ou The Weeknd. Retour sur la carrière d’un artiste qui reste une énigme.

New Order, de la cave au dancefloor

Comment le groupe mancunien le plus sombre de l’ère punk est devenu maître du dancefloor ? Né sur les cendres de Joy Division au début des années 80, New Order symbolise l’une des premières unions réussies entre rock’n’roll et dance music. L’impeccable BO de la morose Angleterre thatchérienne.
