Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 16

My advanced age has allowed me to live through some of the most turbulent times of modern popular music. When I first started buying albums, rock and roll was not 20 years old and most of the pioneers were not only still alive but still relatively young. Mick Jagger was still being busted for drugs […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 15

So what is missing? Well there are some genres which I detest with a ferocity that I could sell to Iran to replace their nuclear weapons programme. Disco is one and most of what is today called RnB I consider to be nothing more than soulless soul. Occasionally, a mainstream commercial release will slip in, […]

Ahh, Part 3. This is it. All good trilogies (Scope Part 1 and Part 2 in case you missed them) must come to an end. The last but not least of the blessed trinity groups of artists that stoked my curiosity and left me longing for more in ’14. Let’s finish strong: 17. Arctic Monkeys […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 14

I confess to being no respecter of reputations. Some albums, very highly rated, I simply do not have because, their status notwithstanding, I never liked them. Albums such as “Dark Side of the Moon” I have described in reviews in terms of “the reason most people have this album is because most people have this […]

ROCK Notes for January 20th, 2014

Musicians taking over this year’s Oscars It was a watershed moment in 2010 when Trent Reznor won the Academy Award for Best Original Score (for The Social Network), as the Nine Inch Nails frontman opened the door for other musicians who aren’t necessarily film composers. Arcade Fire’s William Butler and Toronto violinist Owen Pallett hope […]

Charles Martel’s Top 1000: Part 13

You may have picked up my mention of a musical hiatus. That was the period, roughly corresponding to my first marriage, when my listening to music dropped off sharply. I perhaps bought no more than a dozen CD’s during that period from late 1989 to early 2002. Since then, I have gone back and filled […]

ROCK Notes for January 11th, 2014

Coachella dreamin’ on such a winter’s day I don’t know about you all, but I’ve had just about enough of frost quakes and polar vortexes. Nothing tends to warm me up faster than a major festival lineup announcement like Coachella’s. For the uninitiated, it takes place every April in the sweltering California desert, and acts […]

Carlita’s Top Artists of 2013- Part 2

Continuing the exploration of top artists of 2013, I will highlight a few more that were unforgettable and left their mark behind. Their work speaks for itself so here we go: 9. Mack Wilds The newcomer to the R&B/hip-hop scene but already an accomplished actor, Tristan “Mack” Wilds filled an important void (particularly in the […]
