Along with the mega-platinum Songs from the Big Chair, The Seeds of Love rendered Tears for Fears one of the '80s most successful pop groups. The album was created during a profound period of catharsis. Curt Smith was going through a divorce while Roland Orzabal was in primal therapy. Musically, it's their most sophisticated outing, and it should be: It took four years, four producers, and over a million pounds to complete. The duo sought to distance themselves from the synth pop of their earlier records in favor of a more organic approach using live musicians. Included in this all-star cast are Kate St. John, Jon Hassell, Robbie Macintosh, and Ian Stanley. Orzabal began writing in 1985 with touring keyboardist Nicky Holland and continued in London in 1986. Their collaboration netted half the album's tracks, including "Bad Man's Song." Due to outside pressures, Smith's only co-writing credit is the soaring title track, though he played, sang, and advised on all charts and mixes. The album's Muse is American vocalist/pianist Oleta Adams. Orzabal caught her set in a hotel bar in 1985 and asked her two years later to duet on the transcendent album-opener "Woman in Chains." It set the tone for the entire proceeding. (The glorious drumming on the cut is by Phil Collins.) Adams also contributed gospel vocals to "Bad Man's Song," which features a Holland piano intro strongly suggestive of Weather Report's "Birdland." The presence of drummer Manu Katche and bassist Pino Palladino underscores it. The production chart for "Sowing the Seeds of Love" borrows heavily from the Beatles' "I Am the Walrus," but ends up as a spiritual, sociopolitical anthem in its own sonic universe. Smith's devastatingly beautiful refrain and the brief, seemingly errant entrance of an operatic soprano and a choir, frame the panoramic horns, strings, and Fairlight orchestrations, resulting in one of the duo's most enduring songs. On "Advice for the Young at Heart," Smith's and Holland's vocals entwine in a melody grounded in blue-eyed soul, jazz, and elegant pop that recalls the Style Council. Hassell's fourth world trumpet introduces the lithe "Standing on the Corner of the Third World," clearing the way for a melody that melds Bacharach-esque pop to folk, rock, and chamber jazz, with riveting singing from Smith and Orzabal. "Swords and Knives" melds squalling prog rock guitar (a la Robert Fripp) to Afro-Latin polyrhythms and orchestral arrangements woven through psych-pop overtones. The rave-up rocker "Year of the Knife" is loaded with effects. Its siren-like strings provide ballast for ripping, multi-tracked guitars, samples, atmospherics, punchy drums, and a soul revue chorus. Closer "Famous Last Words" opens with ambient sounds and a lone piano as Orzabal delivers a love song about mortality. Simon Phillips' drumming propels wafting strings and a chorale, before they're stripped away at close. Thanks to the duo's uncompromising stubbornness, expansive creative vision, and Dave Bascombe's final production, The Seeds of Love has dated better than either of its predecessors and is inarguably Tears for Fears' masterpiece.

L’âge d’or del funk di James Brown

Tra il 1967 e il 1974 il soul del Godfather si trasforma in funk. Circondato dai musicisti più groovy del momento, James Brown orchestrerà la colonna sonora che accompagnerà i cambiamenti della società americana di quel momento. Tutti impazziranno e vorranno salire sulla sua Sex Machine!

Charles Aznavour: che lo spettacolo continui

Charles Aznavour ci ha appena lasciato all'età di 94 anni. E' venuto a mancare sul suo letto, eppure sarebbe stato logico che una vita vissuta interamente per lo spettacolo terminasse sul palcoscenico. La vita di Charles Aznavour potrebbe riassumersi in due parole: «canzone» e «commedia». Come un artigiano appassionato, questo novantaquattrenne di belle speranze ha dato tutto sé stesso allo spettacolo. Così tanto e così bene da aver fatto di questo tema una dei pilastri del suo lavoro.

Trap: istruzioni per l'uso

Dove inizia e dove finisce il trap? Ovvero, come ha fatto un sottogenere del rap, molto di nicchia, a uscire dagli Stati Uniti del sud e a cambiare al punto di diffondersi sulla scena pop mondiale fino quasi a confondersi con lei? Storia e controversie.
