Indeed a little extra for diehards and new fans alike, the Cranberries’ Something Else serves as both a great primer to the band’s classics and a suitable greatest-hits collection. Like Tori Amos’ orchestral reworkings on Gold Dust, this release shines a fresh light and decades of hindsight on the Irish group’s ten biggest singles, reinterpreted here with the string quartet from the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

Prior to Nirvana, alternative music was consigned to specialty sections of record stores, and major labels considered it to be, at the very most, a tax write-off. After the band’s second album, 1991’s Nevermind, nothing was ever quite the same, for better and for worse. Nirvana popularized punk, post-punk, and indie rock, unintentionally bringing them into the American mainstream like no other band to date. While their sound was equal parts Black Sabbath (as learned by fellow Washington underground rockers the Melvins) and Cheap Trick, Nirvana’s aesthetics were strictly indie rockRead More

With cult bands, this is a matter of course: many of them still rest on their hit singles and their typical sound. Alphaville is quite different. Even if hits like “Big In Japan” and “Forever Young” remain unforgotten, the synthpop legends 2017 look into the future – with their new album “Strange Attractor”. For seven years fans had to wait for the successor of “Catching Rays On Giant”. A time when much happened. Alphaville had to continue on following the loss of keyboardist Martin Lister, who died in 2014.Read More

Let Me Fly is the second album from the latter-day incarnation of Mike + the Mechanics, the one featuring Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar splitting lead vocal duties. By this point, any of Mike Rutherford’s lingering prog influences are long gone, leaving a streamlined and polished professional pop group. Even when the pace quickens and the arrangements sparkle, the affair seems subdued and, to that end, Roachford never quite gets the chance to stretch his chops. Then again, virtuosity isn’t the name of the game here: this is gleaming mature pop, music for well-tailored moods and, to that end, it succeeds.Read More

Composer Mike Oldfield rose to fame on the success of Tubular Bells, an eerie, album-length conceptual piece employed to stunning effect in the film The Exorcist. Born May 15, 1953, in Reading, England, Oldfield began his professional career at the age of 14, forming the Sallyangie folk duo with his sister Sally; a year later, the siblings issued their debut LP, Children of the Sun. By the age of 16, he was playing bass with Soft Machine founder Kevin Ayers’ group the Whole World alongside experimental classical arranger David Bedford and avant-garde jazz saxophonist Lol Coxhill; within months, Oldfield was tapped to become the band’s lead guitarist prior to recording the 1971 LP Shooting at the Moon.Read More
