This 31st solo album by the former Faces frontman is a perfect example of the record as rollercoaster. It starts off with tracks like the electro-Celtic One More Time and the rocking Some Kind of Wonderful. And in the same vein, also note the tribute to the late Marc Bolan of T. Rex, in the form of a boogie (Born to Boogie), as well as Kookooaramabama, a sort of pastiche of George Michael's I Want Your Sex, perfectly assimilating the latter’s lightness of touch. But in the second part of the album, the tone changes radically. The 76-year-old British singer puts on his sentimental hat to declare his love for his wife Penny (I Can't Imagine) and to pay tribute to his father (Touchline). As for the song that gives the album its title, it deals—making use of a lot of strings and piano—with the dilemma between loyalty to one's native land and a desire to go elsewhere (it is a cover of a Marc Jordan song released in 2004). The covers section also includes Johnny Cash's These Are My People, enhanced with bagpipes, fiddles and electric guitar. After a 50-year career and more than 250 million records sold, Rod the Mod is still seducing his audience and making them dance. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
