Led Zeppelin 'Houses of the Holy (Deluxe Edition)' Album Review

It’s easy to forget just how quickly Led Zeppelin went from sharply juxtaposing blues thump with delicate folk on their debut to blending the two sounds seamlessly at once. After releasing three masterfully multidimensional LPs in 1969 and 1970, the group began its middle period relatively early, in 1971, with the…… Source: RollingStone Link: Led Zeppelin […]

Led Zeppelin IV (Deluxe Edition)

It’s easy to forget just how quickly Led Zeppelin went from sharply juxtaposing blues thump with delicate folk on their debut to blending the two sounds seamlessly at once. After releasing three masterfully multidimensional LPs in 1969 and 1970, the group began its middle period relatively early, in 1971, with the…… Source: RollingStone Link: Led Zeppelin […]

The Velvet Underground (Super Deluxe Edition)

When Lou Reed talks about “the sorrows of the contemporary world, which I know we all know so well” during a 1969 live performance included in this magnificent six-CD repackaging of the Velvet Underground’s pivotal third album, he could be introducing virtually any song on the record. Recorded after the departure…… Source: RollingStone Link: The Velvet […]

Cariad Harmon

An English-born singer-songwriter living in Brooklyn, Cariad Harmon plays warm, stately folk that can evoke a late-Sixties coffee shop. But the life she sings about on her second record is no decorous idyll. “New York, you take all my money and piss it up the wall,” she complains on “Wicked Town,” sounding…… Source: RollingStone Link: Cariad Harmon

It's the Girls!

The reason to make an album of girl-group covers, as Bette Midler has here, is also the biggest challenge: Everyone loves “Be My Baby,” so you’d better nail it. The good news is that Midler has a voice that’s rich enough to reanimate any pop standard – see her showstopping…… Source: RollingStone Link: It's the […]

The Art of McCartney

It makes sense that Paul McCartney would inspire one of the most impressive tribute-album lineups ever assembled. This 42-song blowout has everything from Willie Nelson doing a raggedly loving “Yesterday” to Billy Joel crushing “Maybe I’m Amazed.” There are plenty of surprises, too. Did you know you wanted to hear…… Source: RollingStone Link: The Art […]

Broke With Expensive Taste

After a two-year standoff with Interscope, Azealia Banks triumphs with her self-released debut. She nods to club kids of all ages by infusing elements of jazz, deep house and U.K. garage into tracks like “Desperado” and “Chasing Time.” Her most impressive fusion, “Gimme a Chance,” starts with the bubblegum of…… Source: RollingStone Link: Broke With […]

Avonmore

Following a 2012 release with the bafflingly Ferry-less Bryan Ferry Orchestra, the duke of avant-fop returns with this lavish set. Opener “Loop De Li” alone credits six guitarists, including Nile Rodgers, Johnny Marr and Neil Hubbard, the latter a vet of Roxy Music’s Avalon, a set this LP recalls in…… Source: RollingStone Link: Avonmore

Seeds

TV on the Radio’s fifth studio album is the sound of healing – but first, it’s the sound of a band going over its wounds, and boy, do they run deep. On opener “Quartz,” singer Tunde Adebimpe cries, “How much do I love you?/How hard must we try?” over intense…… Source: RollingStone Link: Seeds

Faith in Strangers

Opening on glacial chords that echo Brian Eno’s ambient work, the latest by U.K. electronic magician Andy Stott cooks down the abstract beauty of his 2012 LP Luxury Problems to a new minimalism. Which isn’t to say it’s sleepy, or comforting. On “Violence,” sidekick Alison Skidmore intones “clap your hands”…… Source: RollingStone Link: Faith in […]
