Soulwax – From Deewee

The eighth album by Soulwax is called From Deewee and is a perfect combination of rock and dance. With no less than three drummers the beats are massive and addictive.

Spoon – Hot Thoughts

Who would have thought that Spoon would fuse funk and rock into a great unity? Not me, and yet there was Hot Thoughts. A great album!

Thundercat – Drunk

Thundercat’s third album Drunk is a beautiful, varied album. Just recently released and already a highlight for 2017!

A Christmas Gift For You

Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift For You is widely regarded as the world’s best Christmas album of all time. Do I agree?

Prince – 4Ever

Prince – 4Ever: first posthumous release…

Japan – Tin Drum

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.

Leonard Cohen – Greatest Hits

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).

The Cure: 35 years of Faith

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!

Amy Winehouse – Back To Black

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!

Prince – The Rainbow Children

15 years old already: Prince – The Rainbow Childen, a controversial album, but also an artistic highlight. A tribute to an unknown Prince album.

Public Enemy – Apocalypse 91…The Enemy Strikes Black

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!

Prince & The New Power Generation – Diamonds And Pearls

The first Prince album to disappoint me: Prince & The New Power Generation – Diamonds And Pearls. Looking back on the 25 year-old album.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Skeleton Tree

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…

Sezen Aksu – Söylüyor

Sezen Aksu, the most important person within Turkish (pop)music of the last decades, in 1989 made this beautiful Söylüyor. A tribute.

The Family Stand – Moon In Scorpio

Unknown, unloved. That sadly applies to this album. A masterpiece by a fantastic band with top singer Sandra St. Victor.
