Let's set the scene: Tattoo You was released in August 1981. After an incredible run with Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street, the Stones were careening between highs (Goat's Head Soup, Some Girls) and lows, not to mention some real deep dips (Black and Blue, Emotional Rescue). Most of all, Mick and Keith were grating on each other more and more. But since touring is what keeps the cash register ringing, it was time to put together an album and take it around the world. That album was to be Tattoo You, in fact a bit of a counterfeit "new" record because as it was made up of scraps from the previous albums, and even old demos and embryos of songs that were never finalized. While all this did not bode well, the result was surprisingly miraculous. Indeed: for many fans Tattoo You would be the last truly good Rolling Stones record. A very rock'n'roll side A, a B side with more of a focus on ballads, and everywhere Mick and Keith's flawless expertise...

After the hit Start Me Up which always plays very well in 80,000-seater stadiums, some excellent and rather edgy songs—not really Richards' thing—such as Hang Fire or Neighbours show that there is still plenty of life left in the old dogs yet! And as yet another reminder that the real source of the Stones' music is the blues, we are treated to an excellent, lively rendition of Black Limousine. In terms of the slower numbers, the soulful Top is pretty steamy, and Heaven sees Jagger's spirited falsetto reach new heights. Finally, on Waiting on a Friend, they bring on board a giant of jazz, the saxophonist Sonny Rollins, who puts out an impeccably powerful solo with Caribbean flavours (he is also present on Neighbours and Slave)… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

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”.

Elvis, Still The King?

45 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled precursor. But even if his most important performances of 1954/55 for Sun Records remain the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the aura today of the King seems to be fading in favour of younger generations such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys among others. And yet…

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
