When Doves headed to the studio for the recording of their third album, 2005's Some Cities, they returned home to Manchester. With that kind of scenic inspiration and emotional attachment, Some Cities resulted in Doves' best of their career at that moment. It is mere coincidence that their musical mates, Elbow, have done the same for their third album, Leaders of the Free World. Such a coincidence is a bit comforting in the respect that Elbow do not stray from what they have previously done. Despite being cast as a gloomy bunch on their first two albums -- 2001's Asleep in the Back and 2004's Cast of Thousands -- Elbow trudge on as an emotional band. Singer/songwriter Guy Garvey doesn't wallow in failed relationships as much as he enjoys being cynical and playful about the world around him. Sure, Elbow's more melodic, pensive moments such as "The Stops" and "The Everthere" are classic heartbreakers, with piano-driven melodies lush in melancholic acoustic guitars and Garvey's somber disposition. Leaders of the Free World really comes to life when Elbow give in, allowing these songs to grow into something glorious. Album opener "Station Approach" and "Forget Myself" are brilliant examples of this. "Forget Myself" metaphorically points fingers at a media-obsessed culture that is equally blasé about its own issues. Garvey throws his hands in the air, sighing to himself to "look for a plot where I can bury my broken heart." The album's title track also criticizes a very questionable political system, demanding, "I need to see the Commander in Chief and remind what was passed on to me" as a storm of electric guitars mirrors an anxious, waxing delivery by the band itself -- "Passing the gun from father to feckless son, we're climbing a landslide where only the good die young." Elbow are a great band regardless of what it takes for them to find their footing. Leaders of the Free World is a bit more rock & roll than not, with guts and heart, because Elbow have finally embraced their powerful, surrounding space this time out. [The U.S. version includes a limited-edition DVD of videos for each song on Leaders of the Free World.] ~ MacKenzie Wilson

Fleetwood Mac, la période blues

Il y a deux Fleetwood Mac, celui des années 1960 aux couleurs blues porté par l’un des plus grands guitaristes de sa génération, Peter Green, et l’autre, un groupe de pop-rock qui deviendra l’une des formations les plus acclamées de son époque. Leur album de 1977, “Rumours”, reste, quarante ans après, l’une des dix meilleures ventes de tous les temps. Mais la première période du groupe, moins connue, fut tout aussi captivante.

Iggy et les Stooges, l'aube punk

En 1969, une bande d’auto-proclamés crétins dynamite le rock’n’roll à coup de distorsion et de textes nihilistes. A la tête de ces Stooges, Iggy Pop, une sorte de Nijinski habité et révolté, destiné à devenir le parrain du punk rock à venir.

British blues boom, chronique d’une révolution

Si Joe Bonamassa revient avec “British Blues Explosion”, un an après le “Blue & Lonesome” des Rolling Stones, c’est que le « British blues boom » a été plus qu’un simple courant. L’intérêt des Anglais pour les icônes américaines du genre a engendré une véritable révolution, avec en tête la sainte Trinité de la guitare, formée par Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page. À l’aube des années 1960, une fabuleuse déferlante atteint les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne. Et ouvre la voie à de nouvelles dimensions musicales.
