From the moment the Pyromania guitars herald open the title track on Celebrity Skin, it's clear Hole no longer is tortured. Gone are the roaring guitars and noise, the pain and the anguish that informed Pretty on the Inside and Live Through This. Some angst remains, but it's buried under a glaze of shiny guitars and hazy melodies, all intended to evoke the heyday of Californian pop in the late '70s. Conceptually, it's a bold move for a band that's nearly synonymous with grunge, but the makeover doesn't quite work. Part of the reason is that Hole's music was always compelling as nakedly cathartic spectacle -- and that's exactly what has been excised on Celebrity Skin. In the past, Courtney Love pushed her emotions to the forefront, and the sheer forcefulness of her personality disguised the anonymity of her bandmates. A toned-down Love still may not be able to carry a tune, but there's little grit to her performance on Celebrity Skin, so she effortlessly blends with the faceless musical support -- which is strange, considering her overpowering public image. Walking the line between soft rock and confessional grunge was a difficult task regardless, and to its credit, Hole -- with the assistance of producer Michael Beinhorn and consultant Billy Corgan, who is credited with co-writing five songs and essentially pioneered the very sound of Celebrity Skin with his Smashing Pumpkins albums -- has created an album that sounds like an arena rock monster, but the hooks sink only halfway in, so it doesn't have much impact. It is a complete makeover, but instead of metamorphosing into a new band, Hole has unwittingly neutered itself.

Nelle Panoramiche...
British blues boom, cronaca di una rivoluzione

Se Joe Bonamassa ritornò con British Blues Explosion, un anno dopo Blue And Lonesome dei Rolling Stones, fu perché il boom del blues inglese si rivelò essere qualcosa di più di una semplice moda... Più che una semplice tendenza musicale, l'interesse di una giovane generazione per le grandi icone del blues americano, ignorate nella loro terra, generò un'autentica rivoluzione guidata da tre principali agitatori: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, considerati oltre la Manica, niente meno che la Santissima Trinità della storia del rock o della chitarra. Sebbene non fossero gli unici musicisti coinvolti, fu attraverso le loro rispettive carriere che si scoprì che il blues, lungi dall'essere una musica che aveva passato la sua data di scadenza, era come un salto verso altre dimensioni musicali che avrebbe permesso molteplici innovazioni.

God Save The Kinks

Cinquant’anni fa, i Kinks pubblicavano “The Village Green Preservation Society”, album fuori dal tempo e dalle mode. Un capolavoro pop che racchiudeva l’eterna Inghilterra. Per alcuni, un disco quasi retrogrado, considerato oggi uno dei più influenti del suo tempo. In altri termini, non ci sono solo Lennon/McCartney e Jagger/Richards a questo mondo…

Eric Clapton sul filo del rasoio

Una versione dance di “Jingle Bells”, un “Lonesome Christmas” o un “White Christmas” più blues, il tutto su un album di Natale (“Happy Xmas”). Sogno o realtà? Eric Clapton lo ha fatto. In fondo, se persino Bob Dylan si è sacrificato in nome della tradizione (con l’album “Christmas in the Heart”), perché non dovrebbe farlo Dio in persona? Non che sia la prima volta che il musicista britannico, vicino ai 74, si allontana da un blues più o meno tradizionale, ma fin qui non si era ancora mai spinto…
