Album Description

The testament. The final chapter. Abbey Road, released in September 1969, is the last true episode in the discography of The Beatles, with Let It Be (released in May 1970) having actually been recorded previously. A farewell that magnifies the art of composition, melodic mastery and harmonic balance. Once again, the range is wide - whether your talking about the soothing ballads, or more percussive tracks like Come Together. Abbey Road also reminds us that, behind the tutelary tandem of Lennon/McCartney, George (Here Comes The Sun) and Ringo (Octopus's Garden) are not there to simply make up the numbers. This masterpiece, in spite of its huge success, could not prevent the Fab Four from ending their union. The divorce was made official in April 1970. The most influential group of all time ultimately spent just seven years in the studio… ©MZ/Qobuz, Translation/BM

The White Album: The Beatles' Immaculate Conception

Here we take a look back at a record whose history is as complex as its content.The Beatles' legendary "White Album", which was their only double album, is now more than 50 years old. Listen to the 2018 widely-expanded re-release containing an abundance of previously-unreleased material on Qobuz.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Pavement's Not-So-Secret Genre-Making History

Thirty years ago, Pavement set a road map for '90s indie rock—lo-fi, whip-smart, Gen-X cynical—with their career-defining Slanted and Enchanted. (And yes, the band came to define the term "slacker rock.") You can still hear their influence on artists like Courtney Barnett, Deerhunter, Beabadoobee, Parquet Courts, Kiwi Jr., and many more. And, of course, they famously, majorly inspired Blur's 1997 self-titled album, in effect changing the face of Brit-pop without even meaning to. As Pavement continues on their first tour since 2010, here's a look back at the band's history through their epochal records.
