After a mere three albums in just under three years, Cream called it quits in 1969. Being proper gentlemen, they said their formal goodbyes with a tour and a farewell album called -- what else? -- Goodbye. As a slim, six-song single LP, it's far shorter than the rambling, out-of-control Wheels of Fire, but it boasts the same structure, evenly dividing its time between tracks cut on-stage and in the studio. While the live side contains nothing as indelible as "Crossroads," the live music on the whole is better than that on Wheels of Fire, capturing the trio at an empathetic peak as a band. It's hard, heavy rock, with Cream digging deep into their original "Politician" with the same intensity as they do on "Sitting on Top of the World," but it's the rampaging "I'm So Glad" that illustrates how far they've come; compare it to the original studio version on Fresh Cream and it's easy to see just how much further they're stretching their improvisation. The studio side also finds them at something of a peak. Boasting a song apiece from each member, it opens with the majestic classic "Badge," co-written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison and ranking among both of their best work. It's followed by Jack Bruce's "Doing That Scrapyard Thing," an overstuffed near-masterpiece filled with wonderful, imaginative eccentricities, and finally, there's Ginger Baker's tense, dramatic "What a Bringdown," easily the best original he contributed to the group. Like all of Cream's albums outside Disraeli Gears, Goodbye is an album of moments, not a tight cohesive work, but those moments are all quite strong on their own terms, making this a good and appropriate final bow. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

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.

Santana, le lézard de Tijuana

Une place au panthéon du rock assurée dès ses débuts avec sa performance ensorcelante à Woodstock, une dizaine de Grammy Awards sous le bras et des millions de disques écoulés grâce à sa renaissance en star de la latin pop, des featurings plus prestigieux les uns que les autres… Santana fait partie de ces artistes qui ont tout raflé : la reconnaissance du public, de la critique et de ses pairs. Portrait d’un artiste comblé qui enchaîne les mues comme un lézard.

La britpop en 10 albums

« Si le but du punk était de se débarrasser des hippies, le nôtre est d’en finir avec le grunge. » Lorsque Damon Albarn assène cette phrase en 1993, l’Angleterre s’apprête à reprendre sa place sur un échiquier musical envahi par Seattle avec le grunge et Nirvana. Profondément liée à la vie politique et l’identité locale, la pop britannique se révèle au moment où Tony Blair et le New Labour entrent en scène. Le romantisme anglais redevient attractif par rapport à l’identité américaine, jugée trop creuse outre-Manche. Place à la « Cool Britannia ».
