In one regard, Queen II does indeed provide more of the same thing as on the band's debut. Certainly, of all the other albums in Queen's catalog it bears the closest resemblance to its immediate predecessor, particularly in its lean, hard attack and in how it has only one song that is well-known to listeners outside of their hardcore cult: in this case, it's "Seven Seas of Rhye," which is itself more elliptical than "Keep Yourself Alive," the big song from the debut. But these similarities are superficial and Queen II is a very different beast than its predecessor, an album that is richer, darker, and weirder, an album that finds Queen growing as a band by leaps and bounds. There is still a surplus of ideas, but their energies are better focused this time around, channeled into a over-inflated, pompous rock that could be called prog if it wasn't so heavy. Even with all the queens and ogres that populate Queen II, this never feels as fantastical as Genesis or Uriah Heep, and that's because Queen hits hard as a rock band here, where even the blasts of vocal harmonies feel like power chords, no matter how florid they are. Besides, these grandiose harmonies, along with the handful of wistful ballads here, are overshadowed by the onslaught of guitars and pummeling rhythms that give Queen II majesty and menace. Queen is coiled, tense, and vicious here, delivering on their inherent sense of drama, and that gives Queen II real power as music, as well as a true cohesion. The one thing that is missing is any semblance of a pop sensibility, even when they flirt with a mock Phil Spector production on "Funny How Love Is." This hits like heavy metal but has an art-rock sensibility through and through, which also means that it has no true hook in for those who don't want to succumb to Queen's world. But that kind of insular drama is quite alluring in its own right, which is why Queen II is one of the favorites of their hardcore fans. At the very least, it illustrates that Queen is starting to pull all their ambitions and influences into a signature sound, and it's quite powerful in that regard.

Queen, wahre Freunde

Dreißig Jahre nach dem Tod von Freddie Mercury blickt Qobuz auf den Werdegang von Queen zurück, einer Band, die oft auf die Persönlichkeit ihres Sängers reduziert wird, obwohl es sich gleichermaßen um den Zusammenschluss von vier außergewöhnlichen und gleichberechtigten Musikern handelt. Und genau das bemühten sich Brian May und Roger Taylor (ohne den in Rente gegangenen John Deacon) seit dem Dahinscheiden ihres brillanten Sängers am 21. November 1991 zu beweisen.

Die Tropicalismo-Bewegung: Eine brasilianische Revolution

Gegen Ende der 60er Jahre lehnte sich eine Gruppe junger brasilianischer Künstler durch die Verschmelzung nationaler Volksmusik mit Rock und Avantgarde gegen die Militärregierung auf. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes und ihre Freunde erfanden den Tropicalismo, eines der originellsten musikalischen Abenteuer des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Metallica und der Weg in Richtung Mainstream

Mit 125 Millionen verkauften Alben weltweit, darunter ca. 30 Millionen Exemplare des "Black Album", ist Metallica eines der überraschendsten Phänomene der Popmusik in den letzten 50 Jahren. Wie hat es eine Metal-Band mit ihren komplizierten Songs geschafft, sich auf die Höhe von Madonna oder Michael Jackson hinaufzuschwingen? Durch Intuition und Entschlossenheit. Ein Blick zurück auf die Anfänge der wichtigsten Metal-Band der Geschichte.
