The Benjamins shamelessly display all things great and endlessly endearing about power pop: instantly digestible melodies; short and tuneful solos; bottom-heavy distorted fuzz bass; a pounding backbeat; multiple layers of guitar crunch; harmonic bliss; and lyrics of love lost, love found, and love unrequited. Delivered in a devil-may-care attitude with heart in hand and tongue in cheek, the Benjamins' youthful exuberance crashes through with the force of a teenage sunami. "Sophia on the Stereo" is an aural paean to the Cars that symbolically opens with the scratchy sounds of a car radio before giving way to the onslaught of noodling synthesizer riffs, "uh-oh" backing vocals, the always reliable I-IV-V chord progression, and lyrics imbedded in the tradition of late-'70s new wave. In "Couch," a paint-by-numbers Cheap Trick tribute, Jay Stys comically pines, "Molly Ringwald, me and you, 16 candles, lonely summers." The Art of Disappointment is a pop/rock joyride without filler.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.

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.

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.
