Apropos of nothing, Georgian-born chanteuse Katie Melua surprised everyone with 2010's The House by hooking up with William Orbit and fusing her familiar brand of coffee table jazz-pop with flourishes of subtle electronica. Perhaps concerned that it failed to top the charts like her previous three records, the 27-year-old has reverted to type for its follow-up, Secret Symphony, by returning to mentor Mike Batt, the former Wombles songwriter responsible for her incredible early success. It's a disappointing and frustrating retreat back to safety. Melua's distinctive velvety vocals were always more intriguing than the so-laid-back-they're-horizontal arrangements which surrounded them, but her last effort was an encouraging sign that she could leave her usual dinner party background music firmly behind. And while Batt's contributions here -- such as the drowsy lounge pop of "The Bit That I Don't Get," the steel-laden country balladry of "The Walls of the World," and the yearning, string-soaked title track -- are all typically elegant, demure, and understated affairs, they're so overly polite and ultimately anodyne, they make Eva Cassidy sound like a death metal act. If any more evidence were needed that Batt appears to be restricting her talents, Melua is far more captivating on the self-penned chamber pop of "Forgetting All My Troubles," and the four cover versions included, from the soaring torch song reworking of Ron Sexsmith's "Gold in Them Hills," to the double bass-led shuffle treatment of Fran Healy's "Moonshine," to the straightforward rendition of Françoise Hardy's sultry chanson "All Over the World." Secret Symphony is therefore not without its charms, but ultimately it's a clear step backwards from an artist who appeared to be overcoming her notable lack of edge.

Alice Cooper scheut keine Gefahr

Alice Coopers Werdegang ist vor allem ein besonderer Fall von gespaltener Persönlichkeit. Ähnlich wie in „Der seltsame Fall des Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde“ hat sich der Sänger Vincent Furnier dem Showman Alice Cooper unterworfen. Wie er selbst eingesteht, bleibt derjenige, der in den Interviews immer in der dritten Person von Alice spricht, in seinem Privatleben ein durchaus einfacher und normaler Mensch, der mit diesen zahllosen ausschweifenden und provozierenden Bühnenauftritten wenig zu tun hat. Seine ganze vierundfünfzigjährige Karriere hindurch lässt sich angesichts seiner zahlreichen stilistischen Varianten außerdem eine gewisse Schizophrenie beobachten. Zwar wird ihm die Erfindung des Schock-Rock gutgeschrieben, er hat aber alles, oder fast alles mit mehr oder weniger viel Erfolg ausprobiert. Vom Pop, über den Heavy Metal, New Wave oder Industrial bis hin zu den Anfängen des Hardrock…

Die 1000 Leben des David Bowie

Einzigartig und genial - David Bowie hat niemals aufgehört, sich neu zu erfinden und dabei eine faszinierende Diskographie hervorgebracht. Ein einzigartiger Fall in der Geschichte des Rock.

Weihnachten in 15 Alben

Sie haben keinen besonders guten Ruf. Oft werden sie unter Musikkritikern verpönt und doch werden sie von aller Welt gehört. Diese besondere Spezies der Weihnachtsalben sprießt jedes Jahr von den bekanntesten und renommiertesten Künstlern aus dem Boden. Die ersten Pop-Weihnachtstlieder, die keinen kirchlichen Bezug mehr aufwiesen, entstanden um 1934 aus Kinderliedern, wie etwa Santa Claus Is Coming to Town von Fred Coots und Haven Gillespie, das 1935 von Tommy Dorsey und seinem Orchester aufgezeichnet wurde. Mit den Croonern kamen die ersten LPs auf, die eine Sammlung an mehreren Songs für die Festtage vereinten. Hier ist eine Auswahl an Alben, die wir mit größter Sorgfalt für Sie auserlesen haben und die Ihnen die Weihnachtszeit in diesem Jahr ganz besonders schön machen soll...
