A rock’n’roll tsunami! On stage, the Ramones never questioned themselves, shooting at everything that moved just to remind everyone of their unique style; one that was anchored in traditional rock’n’roll yet incorporated surf music and punk. With foolishness as their philosophy, teenage carelessness as their credo, supersonic guitars as their weapon of mass destruction, this profession of faith - binary in form and playful in content - gave birth to amphetamine-fuelled hymns of bubble-gum pop such as Blitzkrieg Bop, Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue and Judy Is A Punk. Recorded in 1977 at London’s Rainbow Theatre on New Year’s Eve, It’s Alive includes these hits and many others, going at 200 mph through their first three albums: Ramones (1976), Leave Home (1977) and Rocket to Russia (1977). The gang from Forest Hills in Queens pack in 28 tracks in less than an hour! To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this live anthology from 1979, the Deluxe Edition proposes the original remastered album alongside a series of tracks recorded at other concerts during the same English tour in December 1977: the Top Rank in Birmingham on 28 th , Victoria Hall in Stoke-On-Trent on 29 th and the Friars in Aylesbury on 30 th . Without the frills of the studio versions (not that there were many in the first place), all the songs on It's Alive tap into that initial fury, which comes across as even more raw and effective. This 40 th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is supervised by Ed Stasium, the producer and sound engineer of the original album. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

After leaving Apple Records in 1969, James Taylor signed a deal with Warner Bros. During those six years of partnership, his meteoritic rise made him one of the most adulated folk singers in the United States, for hits such as Fire and Rain and You’ve Got a Friend, that encapsulated his lyrical prowess, entrancing voice and overall capacity to rethink folk idioms in a more commercial-friendly format. Starting with Sweet Baby James in 1970, Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971) One Man Dog (1972), Walking Man (1974), Gorilla (1975), and last but not least In the Pocket, from 1976, the major steppingstones in Taylor’s career are here. These 6 albums, entirely remastered by Peter Asher, are featured on The Warner Bros. Albums: 1970-1976. The collection is a wonderful way to rediscover his halcyon days and his most important body of work, which would influence countless musicians during the 70s and after thanks to his sensitive, introspective charm. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

After Five Years (1969 – 1973) and Who Can I Be Now ? (1974 – 1976), to dive into the box set A New Career In A New Town (1977 – 1982), is to zoom in on David Bowie's Berlin period. In 1977, Ziggy moored up in the German city, then disfigured by a wall. With Diamond Dogs in 1974 and in particular Young Americans the following year, soul and funk were suffused with a rock’n’roll sound. But this Bowie was to be eclipsed by a colder, more cerebral, experimental Bowie. Always ready to re-invent himself, to follow trends (when he wasn't setting them himself...) and simply to question things, he flew to Berlin, where things were in motion. Alongside Brian Eno, formerly of Roxy Music, he wrote his famous Berlin trilogy, which opened with Low. On this bizarre record, everything begins with a weird baroque soul instrumental, with electronic textures (Speed of Light), then a balanced mix of songs and other instrumental tracks. Capable of delivering futurist soul (Sound And Vision), a sombre and mysterious symphony (Warszawa), new-wave minimalism that sounded like a Sci-Fi soundtrack (Art Decade) or disjointed, cubist rock (Breaking Glass), this was David Bowie revisiting his experiences with Krautrock from groups like Neu!, Can and Faust, playing with Kraftwerk's machines but remaining himself: a genially insane savant still ahead of his time. Heroes, which stands out from the crowd, essentially follows the same recipe, but in warmer tones. In the still-immured German city, his music recalled the halcyon days of the raging punk movement that was thundering in his native England. Flanked by mad machines (once again piloted by Eno) and weird guitars (by  Robert Fripp, ex-member of King Crimson), Bowie channelled his experiments with electronic flavours (Neuköln) into compositions with more rounded melodies (Heroes, The Beauty And The Beast, Joe The Lion). Heroes is above all the cult album which would mark both new wave and the cold wave that followed… Released in May 1979, Lodger closes the Berlin period in a more consensual (but less passionate) spirit. Recorded at Montreux and in New York by Tony Visconti, with Brian Eno still to hand, it features a Bowie who is having fun taking a look into world music, and in particular at the work of the group Talking Heads. This is hardly surprising, when we note that David Byrne's group was then working with Eno... Nevertheless, the ensemble remains startling and less homogeneous than the two previous records. After this avant-garde trilogy, the British artist casts off some of his froideur, but not the madness, of his experiments with genre, with Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) which came out in 1980. Between self-assured modern funk (Fashion and its angular groove) and a re-visited new wave (Ashes To Ashes), he paints a new rainbow, as dense as ever, and still in step with the many currents of its time. A perfect marriage of the 70s and 80s, this brilliant neo-punk cabaret contains powerful compositions that are classic in content and daring in form. Forever in search of the unexpected, the Thin White Duke takes on board a post-Television song from Tom Verlaine (Kingdom Come), invites The Who's Pete Townshend to play on Because You're Young, and, on half of the tracks, offers Robert Fripp crazy, out-of-control guitar sequences. Alongside remasters of Low, Heroes, Lodger, Stage and Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), this box set offers Lodger remixed and co-produced by Visconti, Re:Call 3, a compilation of singles, B-sides and rarities including Heroes sung in German and French. © MZ/Qobuz

Any band would have been hard-pressed to follow the success of a multi-platinum album with another one of equal or higher quality both critically and commercially. Needless to say, that's exactly what David Coverdale and Whitesnake were faced with when it came time to record 1989's Slip of the Tongue, the follow-up to their 1987 smash self-titled LP. To complicate matters, Coverdale lost Irish guitarist Vivian Campbell during pre-recording sessions due to artistic differences, and his songwriting partner and lead guitarist, Adrian Vandenberg, injured himself to the degree that he couldn't play; he did some early work that made it on to the final album. Coverdale, faced with a quickly approaching deadline and pressure from management and the label finally recruited former Frank Zappa guitarist Steve Vai to fill the chair. Commercially, Slip of the Tongue was an unqualified success. The album ended up being Whitesnake's third platinum recording. Musically, however, the set is so drenched in '80s production -- huge compression, MIDI keyboards, a thin bottom end, etc. -- it seems that little of the band's tough blues-based metallic persona remains. The album sounds dated, full of overblown sounds and effects that have little to do with the act's trademark heavy guitar-and-bass approach to hard rock and early Brit metal. Some of the songs have merit, even if their finished productions ruin them -- the tough "Now You're Gone" and "Judgment Day," are great examples, as is "The Deeper the Love," a classic Coverdale power ballad needlessly drenched in keys and synths. The fit between Vai and Whitesnake is also questionable; his busy approach is at odds with the meat-and-potatoes strut and pound of the band. Fans ate it up at the time, but Slip of the Tongue is, unfortunately, still an album very much of its time. The curious, as well as fans, may want to check out their earlier work before picking this up. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

The third installment in a comprehensive deluxe reissue series of David Bowie's entire catalog, A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982) chronicles perhaps the most artistically ambitious phase in Bowie's career -- one that began with 1977's Low and concluded with 1980's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps). Only two other studio albums arrived in this period -- Heroes, which also came out in 1977, and 1979's Lodger -- which means the remaining seven discs in this 11-CD box are devoted to a variety of odds and ends, including two versions of the 1978 double-live album Stage (the original LP track listing, plus a new remaster of the 2005 expansion), the Heroes EP which contains German versions of the lead track, a brand-new mix of Lodger from producer Tony Visconti, and Re:Call 3, which gathers up B-sides, single edits, and other ephemera from this period. Like on its two predecessors, Five Years and Who Can I Be Now, A New Career in a New Town frustratingly does not include any of the bonus tracks from the '90s Rykodisc expansions of these albums -- a situation that seems especially weird in the case of Low, whose bonus "Some Are" wound up as a section of Philip Glass' 1992 symphonic adaptation of the album -- but the pain is mitigated by the vivid new mix of Lodger. Dense and colorful without changing the feel of the original album, the 2017 mix of Lodger helps focus attention on an excellent record that often gets overshadowed by the three albums accompanying it in this box. It's hard to say if it's enough to warrant a purchase of this hefty box, but in either its CD or LP incarnation, A New Career in a New Town is a handsome, alluring, and exceptional-sounding reissue that earns its price tag. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
