Death, Review, Tribute
George Michael’s Listen Without Prejudice is het highlight in man’s body of work: a beautiful album with great songs that showed that Michael was to be taken seriously: a tribute.
Tags: George Michael
Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift For You is widely regarded as the world’s best Christmas album of all time. Do I agree?
Tags: Bob B Soxx & Blue jeans, Crystals, Darlene Love, Phil Spector, Ronettes
D’Angelo’s Black Messiah was suddenly released two years ago. After 15 years of waiting finally a successor to the genius Voodoo! Could D’Angelo fulfill the sky-high expectations?
Death, Prince, Review, Tribute
Prince – 4Ever: first posthumous release…
With the release of Emancipation Prince celebrated his liberation from his contract with Warner Bros. It became a 3 hour-long, 36 song album, divided by 3-discs. 20 years ago today. A look back.
Japan’s Tin Drum: 35 years old! An utterly unique masterpiece by the former glamrock band Japan. A tribute to the best music can produce.
Tags: David Sylvian, Japan, Mick Karn
Leonard Cohen’s Greatest Hits is a kind of soundtrack to my youth: beautiful songs. A (small) tribute to the Artist (with a capital A).

In honor of 35 years of depression and beauty, a tribute to the album Faith, the best album within the entire body of work by The Cure!
Family favorite Amy Winehouse – Back To Black is 10 years old. This album still sounds fantastic and still moves, even after listening all those times!

15 years old already: Prince – The Rainbow Childen, a controversial album, but also an artistic highlight. A tribute to an unknown Prince album.
25 years ago today Public Enemy’s last masterpiece was released: Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Strikes Black. Saw them live at the time: impressive and unforgettable. A tribute to a hip-hop classic!
Tags: Public Enemy
The first Prince album to disappoint me: Prince & The New Power Generation – Diamonds And Pearls. Looking back on the 25 year-old album.
Queen? Really? Yes, really. Queen is the first music that genuinely felt mine. Loved the music, image, everything! Up until Jazz/Live Killers.
One of the most moving records I have ever heard. Nick Cave doesn’t sweeten his heartfelt sorrow over losing his son. It’s a stunningly beautiful and moving record…
