Is this really the same Talk Talk who had topped the charts four years earlier with their hit Such a Shame? With Spirit of Eden, Mark Hollis’ band made a complete U-turn, leaving their oh-so-eighties synthesizers in the cellar this time round. Released in September 1988, this fourth album zig-zags between chamber pop and atmospheric jazz. Hollis' singing is accompanied by ethereal bass lines, slow-motion guitars and muffled drums. He abandons Bryan Ferry's dandyism for a more evocative tone, now sounding more like David Sylvian on Brilliant Trees… or maybe Brian Eno on Music For Airports. With this album, Talk Talk invented a kind of elegant post-rock that was mingled with classy new age. And to reach new heights of melancholy, the Englishman rolled out the oboes, harmoniums, violins, bassoons, cor anglais, dobros, the list goes on… A musical experience like no other. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
