It would have been too easy to celebrate a Metallica birthday with a simple reissue. The band has really decided to make things special by inviting other artists to come in and have fun with their most famous album. This idea has really fired the passions of artists whose own musical upbringings were strongly influenced by this record. Rockers, DJs, folk, country, hip hop and other artists have all at one time or another gloried in some riff or chorus from this legendary beast of an album. They answered the call en masse. The result is an impressive compilation of 53 tracks. The 12 songs from the original album are each revisited several times by an amazingly diverse cast, all for a good cause (the proceeds from sales are donated to the charities supported by the artists involved in this project).

From Corey Taylor to Royal Blood, via Miley Cyrus, My Morning Jacket and the Frenchmen Sebastian and Izia, everyone has their own slant, taking liberties to a greater or lesser degree, some trying to respect the original songs while others have taken a fresh approach to the 12 tracks that built a rock legend. For sure, this compilation will take a while to digest fully. But its incredible diversity makes it an album to come back to again and again, enjoying a taste of a few different morsels each time. In the end, one is almost more thrilled by the “freer” versions, like the excellent Sad But True by Jason Isbell, Holier Than Thou by Biffy Clyro, Of Wolf And Man by Goodbye, Texas or The God That Failed by Idles, which offer a new point of view. Meanwhile interpretations by the likes of Volbeat or Weezer turn out to be closer to the original versions, and therefore  less surprising. And then there are those, like Dave Gahan, whose voices will leave listeners spellbound, no matter how they decide to reinterpret these classics. We might be tempted to speak of Blacklist as a mish-mash: but really, it is a mine, because it is full of gems. This is a very fine way to celebrate a birthday. © Chief Brody/Qobuz

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.

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.

Know Your Lemmy

On 24th December 2017, Lemmy Kilmister would have celebrated his 72nd birthday, and therefore more than forty years at the head of Motörhead, the noisiest rock ‘n’ roll band in history. Rapid onset cancer finally felled the one who had become an icon that many believed to be immortal, given how many times his death was announced and then refuted. Motörhead, which logically ended with him, therefore lived for four decades through all the ups, downs and misunderstandings…
