X's first album issued on a major label, 1982's Under the Big Black Sun, is arguably their finest record. All 11 songs are exceptional, from both a performance and compositional point of view. Ray Manzarek's production is more akin to hard rock bands than their earlier punk works, but the songs still pack quite a punch. Before the recording of the album, singer Exene Cervenka's sister was killed by a drunk driver, and the band decided to work out their grief in the music, as evidenced by two of the album's best tracks: the melodic "Riding With Mary" and the vintage '50s sound of "Come Back to Me." The highlights don't stop there, however; also included are the Led Zeppelin-esque "The Hungry Wolf" (an early video favorite of MTV), the accelerating "Motel Room in My Bed," the rocker "Blue Spark," the spacious title track, and the album closer "The Have Nots." Again, Cervenka and John Doe supply some great vocal harmonies (perhaps the only punk band to ever do so), while Billy Zoom shows off great rockabilly chops throughout. Under the Big Black Sun is one of the quintessential rock records from the '80s. ~ Greg Prato

Erased Tapes, un label pas si classique

Dès sa création en 2007, Erased Tapes s’est imposé comme un des labels les plus innovants des quinze dernières années, tout en rencontrant le succès auprès du public. Parfois trop vite réduit à sa vitrine néoclassique (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), le label basé à Londres mène des explorations aux confins de l’ambient, l’electronica et l’expérimental à travers un catalogue mené de manière harmonieuse par l’Allemand Robert Raths, que Qobuz vous propose d’explorer.

Jack White au secours du rock

Des Whites Stripes à son virage en solitaire, Jack White aura sonné le glas d’un rock faisandé. Dix ans après « Seven Nation Army », le génie aux mille projets prophétise : la relève du rock revient en force. En attendant, retour sur le phénomène White.

L'âge d'or du rock indé américain en 10 albums

Après des 80’s bien synthétiques, les guitares font un violent come-back durant la décennie suivante et infiltrent tous les courants du rock indépendant. Indépendant d’un système et de la masse. Comme un courant alternatif hérité de l’esprit subversif et bricolo du punk qu’on retrouve chez le Velvet Underground de Lou Reed ou les Stooges d’Iggy Pop. Retour sur 10 albums marquants de ces denses années 90.
