Lenny Kravitz must have realized he bottomed out with the turgid Circus, so he decided to shake things up a bit on its follow-up, 5. Like any veteran in the late '90s, he dabbled in electronica, adding a few trip-hop loops and analog synths to his bedrock rock n' soul. It's enough to make 5 sound relatively fresh, at least compared to the retro dead-end of Circus, yet it sounds like Kravitz read about the idea of electronica without actually listening to any music. Anemic synths and stilted drum loops (sampled from Kravitz's playing, not old records) are scattered throughout the record, along with vaguely distorted vocals. It's not enough to make Kravitz sound hip, especially since he still loves endless funk jams and electric sitars, but it does revitalize his sound. At least for a little while. By the end of the album, his songwriting sounds as tired and unmemorable as on Circus. Without hooks, melodies, and style, Kravitz's Sly, Mayfield, Hendrix, Lennon, and Prince pastiches are a bore. 5 has a few passable cuts, yet it falls short of the quirky hero worship and melodic smarts that made his first three records so enjoyable.

Led Zeppelin: 50 anni di rock da festeggiare

Nel 2018 i Led Zeppelin hanno celebrato 50 anni dalla loro formazione. Dopo aver rivoluzionato la storia del rock in soli dodici anni, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant e John Paul Jones si sono ritrovati diverse volte sul palco e in studio dalla morte del loro batterista John Bonham nel 1980, con esiti più o meno felici. Passiamo in rassegna le varie (ri) apparizioni dei mitici Zeppelin.

Betty Davis, la pantera funk

Senza di lei, nessuna Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse né Janelle Monáe! Scomparsa dai riflettori ormai da anni, Betty Davis resta la pioniera delle soul sister feline. La dea funk per eccellenza. E addirittura colei che elettrizzò un certo Miles Davis di cui sarà un’effimera compagna. Ma chi è Betty?

Know your Lemmy

Il 24 dicembre 2017 Lemmy Kilmister avrebbe festeggiato i suoi 72 anni, di cui più di 40 a capo dei Motörhead, il gruppo rock’n’roll più rumoroso della storia. Un cancro fulminante ha avuto infine il sopravvento su colui che era diventato un’icona che si pensava immortale, tanto la sua scomparsa era stata diverse volte annunciata e poi smentita. I Motörhead, che si sono logicamente spenti con lui, avranno dunque attraversato quattro decenni con alti e bassi. E soprattutto molti malintesi, che avranno un impatto importante sulla potenza sonora sprigionata sul palco...
