BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - Energetic look back

20. November 2020

Bruce Springsteen

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - Energiegeladener Blick zurück

Bruce Springsteen's new album "Letter To You" comes as a surprise. But those who expected a real political album like "The Rising" after the 9/11 attacks in Corona and US election campaign times, will be disappointed. Although it is not a "letter" about the current state of the world, "Letter To You" is an album full of wisdom, on which the musician deals intensively with his past. And there is no reason for disappointment: Even if the snowy cover may evoke other associations, this musical "writing" is probably the most energetic E-Street band album since "Born In The U.S.A.".


FATES WARNING - At the end of a long year

20. November 2020

Fates Warning

FATES WARNING - Am Ende eines langen Jahres

It is the darned 13th studio album and will be released in the darned year 2020: "Long Day Good Night" was anything but an easy birth, this becomes clear in the course of the conversation with Fates-Warning frontman Ray Alder. Since 1987 he has been at the centre of progressive metal - together with songwriter and guitarist Jim Matheos - and has helped to forge some of the gems of the genre. The new 72 minutes long and with 13 songs, which is in keeping with his status, now joins the ranks and convinces not least because of its newly opened doors.


QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT - "It's insanely exciting to be a catalyst for Brian and Roger"

Queen Adam Lambert

QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT - „Es ist wahnsinnig aufregend, als Katalysator für Brian und Roger zu wirken“

Like the British head of state, the rock heroes of the 70s and 80s named after him are not thinking of abdicating. On the contrary: since the Oscar-winning biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" Queen has experienced a real renaissance and conquered a whole new audience. With good reason, according to her tour guest singer Adam Lambert: "Freddie Mercury was way ahead of his time."


YUSUF/CAT STEVENS - "This is me, this is my story"

16. November 2020

Yuuf Cat Stevens

YUSUF/CAT STEVENS - „Das bin ich, das ist meine Geschichte“

When it was announced a few months ago that Yusuf aka Cat Stevens would not be releasing a popular remixed deluxe edition of his famous album "Tea For The Tillerman" on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his famous album "Tea For The Tillerman", many critical voices were raised. As the result shows, the experiment was worthwhile - the 72-year-old manages to give his classic album new relevance.


JOE BONAMASSA - Back to the island

16. November 2020

Joe Bonamassa

JOE BONAMASSA - Zurück auf die Insel

The title of JOE BONAMASSA's new album is programmatic in more than one respect: "Royal Tea", conceived and composed in England and produced at Abbey Road Studios, is the "feel-good" album that the New York-born Californian by choice always wanted to make. Even though the permanent tourer is quite tired of the corona-related forced break, his mood immediately brightens when he thinks back to the implementation of his English project.


KRAAN - The pure pleasure principle

16. November 2020

Kraan Hellmut Hattler

KRAAN - Das reine Lustprinzip

In the 1970s KRAAN were a German jazz rock institution. After several break-ups, the band from Ulm has been active again since 2000 and is now celebrating its 50th anniversary. Appropriately, the new studio work "Sandglass" was released in October - a wonderfully light-hearted album on which Hellmut Hattler (vocals, bass), Peter Wolbrandt (vocals, guitar, synthesizer) and Jan Fride (drums) make music together in an almost telepathic way


CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX - "If you listen to our albums, you will see that it is always about the same miserable topics"

16. November 2020

Crippled Black Phoenix

CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX - „Wenn du dir unsere Alben anhörst, wirst du sehen, dass es immer um die gleichen elenden Themen geht“

In their latest work, English post-rockers Crippled Black Phoenix once again deal with the human soul life - this time adding the state of the British nation
Just under a week before the release of "Ellengæst", we catch CBR founder Justin Greaves happily, even almost frolicsomely, in his study. As he tells us in conversation, he is already working on the next album. He also tells us about the recording sessions for the current album and the latest changes in his band.
