Other than being their first platinum-selling album, The Grand Illusion led Styx steadfastly into the domain of AOR rock. Built on the strengths of "Come Sail Away"'s ballad-to-rock metamorphosis, which gained them their second Top Ten hit, and on the high harmonies of newcomer Tommy Shaw throughout "Fooling Yourself," The Grand Illusion introduced Styx to the gates of commercial stardom. The pulverized growl of "Miss America" reveals the group's guitar-savvy approach to six-string rock, while De Young pretentiously struts his singing prowess throughout the title track. Shaw's induction into the band has clearly settled, and his guitar work, along with James Young's, is full and extremely sharp where it matters most. Even the songwriting is more effluent than Crystal Ball, which was released one year earlier, shedding their mystical song motifs for a more audience-pleasing lyric and chord counterpoise. Reaching number six on the album charts, The Grand Illusion was the first to display the gelled accomplishments of both Tommy Shaw and Dennis De Young as a tandem.

Led Zeppelin a fêté en 2018 les 50 ans de sa formation. Après avoir marqué l’histoire du rock en douze ans, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant et John Paul Jones se sont retrouvés plusieurs fois sur scène et en studio depuis la mort du batteur John Bonham en 1980, avec plus ou moins de bonheur. Retour sur les différents come-back de Led Zep.

La naissance du death metal suédois

Berceau d’une quantité incalculable de groupes de metal, la Suède s’est illustrée au niveau international au début des années 90 avec l’apparition soudaine d’une scène death metal féconde et dynamique.
