Back to Black

Potentially controversial, but to truly understand and enjoy Back to Black (B2B) I feel we must first revisit Frank. Released 3 years prior, Frank established an audience with its new wave jazz, neo-soul and infused beat sound, so popular in the early 00’s.

Boy scouting becomes less fashionable. 1963 A lot more people started taking a lot more drugs. People wear pointy footwear. 1964 Americans discover British music.

Listen without prejudice Vol.1

Where do you start with an album that asks you to listen without prejudice?  Well I’ll tell you where I started; a place of distrust and suspicion; what is Mr Michael trying to hide? George Michael released ‘Listen Without Prejudice’  3 September 1990 following the massive success of 1987’s “Faith’. The album was 1 ofContinue reading “Listen without prejudice Vol.1”
