Home's second album, perhaps even a little more than their 1971 debut Pause for a Hoarse Horse, might have been mistaken for an American country-rock record at a casual listen, though the band were British. In keeping with California trends, too, the country-rock got a little slicker, the harmonies at points slightly resembling those of the Eagles, though that group had yet to really take off when Home was issued. It's a marginally more serious, mellow, and wistful LP than Home's first album, and the more laid-back qualities of early-'70s Neil Young must count as a prominent influence as well, on both the singing and songwriting. Still, it's a marginal album as a whole, if not quite mediocre. The tunes aren't too memorable, and the tracks (like those on many on early-'70s rock releases) sometimes go on too long, with the nine-minute "My Lady of the Birds" incorporating some vaguely progressive rock passages, though it isn't typical of the record. The overall atmosphere is on the low-energy side, even for mellow country-rock.

David Bowie, star and genius, never stopped reinventing himself throughout his fascinating, shape-shifting musical career. A unique case in the history of rock.

Pavement's Not-So-Secret Genre-Making History

Thirty years ago, Pavement set a road map for '90s indie rock—lo-fi, whip-smart, Gen-X cynical—with their career-defining Slanted and Enchanted. (And yes, the band came to define the term "slacker rock.") You can still hear their influence on artists like Courtney Barnett, Deerhunter, Beabadoobee, Parquet Courts, Kiwi Jr., and many more. And, of course, they famously, majorly inspired Blur's 1997 self-titled album, in effect changing the face of Brit-pop without even meaning to. As Pavement continues on their first tour since 2010, here's a look back at the band's history through their epochal records.

Elvis, Still The King?

Fifty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled trailblazer. However, despite his essential 1954-1955 sessions for the Sun label still standing as the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the King’s aura is beginning to fade amongst today’s youth, who now tend to favour The Beatles, The Stones and The Beach Boys…
