Superunknown was a breakthrough in many ways. Not only did the album bring Soundgarden a new audience, it dramatically expanded their vision, as well as their accomplishments. If Down on the Upside initially seems a retreat from the grand, layered textures of Superunknown, let it sink in. The sound of Down on the Upside is certainly more immediate, but the band hasn’t returned to the monstrous, unfocused wailing of Louder Than Love.Read More

Soundgarden’s finest hour, Superunknown is a sprawling, 70-minute magnum opus that pushes beyond any previous boundaries. Soundgarden had always loved replicating Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath riffs, but Superunknown’s debt is more to mid-period Zep’s layered arrangements and sweeping epics.Read More

George Michael was the biggest British pop star of the 1980s, spinning a series of infectiously catchy pop singles into global stardom that saw him sell over 100 million albums worldwide. Blessed with good looks, a fine voice, and a knack for writing engaging melodies that worked well with dance-friendly rhythms, Michael became the rare teen sensation who matured into a respected star as an adult, though his life after achieving pop icon status has not been without personal and creative challenges.Read More

Gold isn’t the first Donna Summer compilation (it isn’t even the 24th), and you can bet it won’t be the last. Released by the reputable Hip-O, it’s a two-disc set containing an overly generous list of 34 songs, roughly half of which will be of no consequence to those only wanting the big dancefloor hits from the ’70s and ’80s — “I Feel Love,” “Love to Love You Baby,” “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff,” “On the Radio,” “She Works Hard for the Money,” and the like.

After goth pioneers the Birthday Party called it quits in 1983, singer/songwriter Nick Cave assembled the Bad Seeds, a post-punk supergroup featuring former Birthday Party guitarist Mick Harvey on drums, ex-Magazine bassist Barry Adamson, and Einstürzende Neubauten guitarist Blixa Bargeld. With the Bad Seeds, Cave continued to explore his obsessions with religion, death, love, America, and violence with a bizarre, sometimes self-consciously eclectic hybrid of blues, gospel, rock, and arty post-punk, although in a more subdued fashion than his work with the Birthday Party.Read More

As soundtracks to misguided Beatles-inspired movies go, Across the Universe — the companion piece to Julie Taymor’s pseudo-psychedelic fantasmagoria extravaganza, telling the story of the ’60s through the tunes of the Fab Four — isn’t too embarrassing. Certainly, it lacks the appalling tackiness of Sgt. Pepper and it’s not as stuffy as All This and World War II, but avoiding these two traps isn’t a very high bar to meet, and Across the Universe winds up having its own bewildering gaudy moments.

Bidding for a popular breakthrough with their second major-label album, Soundgarden suddenly developed a sense of craft, with the result that Badmotorfinger became far and away their most fully realized album to that point. Pretty much everything about Badmotorfinger is a step up from its predecessors — the production is sharper and the music more ambitious, while the songwriting takes a quantum leap in focus and consistency.Read More
