In 2001, this second effort by Muse was a great success worldwide and set the stage for the years to come. It was dark: very dark. The often torn voice of Matthew Bellamy offered millions of teenagers a point of reference. Some critics have panned the British band for its grandiloquent, even pompous tendencies. But this group's strength lies precisely in its romantic flights and excessive expressions of emotion, that is how they have touched millions of people who feel the same way. To celebrate and pay tribute to this landmark album which defined an era, Muse have brought out this new version, subtitled XX Anniversary RemiXX. They have called on veteran producer Rich Cosey, who worked on almost every album released since this one first came out. Cosey remixed and remastered all the tracks for a clearer, more dynamic sound, which helps us rediscover sounds which were previously muffled by the rather less subtle first mix. For example, the strings on the pieces Space DementiaCitizen Erased and Megalomania are much clearer on this version. The same goes for the harpsichord on Micro Cuts. There is also a repeat appearance for another song: Futurism was not in the original track listing, except on the Japanese release, where it featured as a bonus track. It fits harmoniously between Feeling Good and Megalomania. Another novelty for the twentieth anniversary edition is the new cover art by artist Sujin Kim. It is a digital reworking of the original drawing. All in all, anyone who enjoyed Origin of Symmetry the first time around will find that this revamped version offers a stronger, more exciting experience than the original. © Yan Céh/Qobuz

Female Jazz Singers: 10 New Names to Know

When it comes to jazz singers, Billie, Ella, Sarah, and Nina may be firm favourites, but this vocal style is sprinkled with an array of exceptional singers ready to make their mark on this legendary genre. Can we still call it jazz? Or is it just that jazz as we know it is changing? Either way, it doesn’t make these vocalists any less incredible. So, without further ado, here are ten women who are making an impact on the world of jazz.

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.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.
