After the success of Welch's first two albums, 1980's The Other One failed to net him a Top 40 hit, proving that he had to rely on something other than his balmy vocals to see him through. Evidently, the same radio-friendly allure that draped "Sentimental Lady" or anything close to the subtle riff in the chorus of "Ebony Eyes" fails to turn up here, leaving the tracks colorless and quite bland. "Spanish Dancers" and "Hideaway" seem to be the strongest cuts, but even these efforts fall short of Three Hearts' approachability. Welch's writing is mild and flimsy for the most part, and because of this the music wears itself out, teetering on the edge of AM triviality. A few of The Other One's cuts turn up on a number of Welch's compilations, which in turn may be the best way to investigate them. Within the same year, Welch released Man Overboard, an album that is variably stronger than its predecessor, but he still couldn't imitate the strength of his earlier work.

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…
