Welcome to my blog. In 2016 I wrote my first stories on my favorite albums. Due to the many, nice and positive feedback and comments I started this blog, A Pop Life subtitled My life with music.
What can you expect? Stories about music which I think is nice, beautiful of moving, reviews, concert reports and much more. I get very happy whenever I receive comments, whether through one of the social media channels or by using the comment form on this site. I love to hear from my readers!
For now, have very much (reading) fun!
In 1981 Rick James released his classic Street Songs album. The hits Give It To Me Baby and Super Freak took care of the commercial side, but the album was an artistic triumph as well . A look back.
In 1986 Prince And The Revolution released a true masterpiece: Parade. No album has ever sounded like that. A look back.
In 2006 Prince released the wonderful 3121, one of his best albums in the new century. A look back at a great album.
In 1976 Marvin Gaye released the beautiful and erotic I Want You, an intimate tribute to his latest lover. A look back.
Mazarati, the story about the band, the debut album, 100 MPH, Prince's Kiss and more. thye rise and fall of an R&B group!
The long expected re-release of Prince's great 1987 album Sign O' The Times. A review of an impressive release. In one word? Crucial!
Another great release in Neil Young's ongoing Archives series, the previously unreleased 1975 album Homegrown. An impressive piece of music history.
The release of RTJ4 came earlier than planned. A great move, because this album is very much needed. The shocking events in the US need perspective. Run The Jewels provide that in an impressive way!
In 1999 BowieNet members received the first Bowie internet CD, in part compiled by members themselves. In 2020 it was made available for everybody to enjoy and listen to!
2½/5: The cooperation with the Metropole Orkest and the special ambiance couldn't inspire the band. Too bad.
3½/5: Very entertaining show by U.K. Subs, who raced through their set within an hour. Great evening!
4/5: A great closer of the concert year 2019. A beautiful story by Fırat Tanış accompanied by beautiful songs performed at a very high level.
On July 30th, 2021, the Prince album Welcome 2 America will be released. It was originally compiled in 2010. The Deluxe version comes with a Blu-Ray containing live recordings from 2011!
On November 27th, 2020 the Smashing Pumpkins will release their new (double) album Cyr!
