Wenn es ein Album gibt, das den Reggae in der Rock-Welt etabliert hat, dann war das <<Catch A Fire>>, Bob Marleys erste Zusammenarbeit mit Chris Blackwells englisch-jamaikanischem Label <<Island Records>>. -- Die Gruppe hiess damals allerdings noch nicht Bob Marley & The Wailers, sondern (wie auch beim Island-Zweitling <<Burnin'>>) schlicht und einfach The Wailers. In Jamaika kannte man sie schon seit der Ska-Ära, ursprünglich als Gesangsquintett, seit 1966 als Trio, bestehend aus Marley, Peter Tosh und Bunny Livingstone. Es war Blackwells Idee, aus dem Trio eine regelrechte Band zu machen, mit den Brüdern Aston <<Family Man>> Barrett (Bass) und Carlton <<Carly>> Barrett von Lee Perrys <<Upsetters>> als fester Rhythmussektion. -- Das Album wurde in Jamaika aufgenommen, aber nachträglich in England mit zwei amerikanischen Musikern (Gitarrist Wayne Perkins und Keyboarder John <<Rabbitt>> Bundrick) aufgepeppt. -- Der neue rockige Sound, zusammen mit explosiven politischen Songs wie <<Concrete Jungle>>, <<Slave Driver>> und Peter Toshs <<400 Years>>, hat dem bis dahin als blosse Tanzmusik verachteten Reggae international erstmals den verdienten Respekt verschafft - und Bob Marley zum ersten Superstar aus der Dritten Welt gemacht.

After 1988's ...And Justice for All, Metallica pared down its progressive, heavy metal sound. During the '90s, the band's studio releases grew slicker and more produced, resulting in mostly radio-friendly, good ol' boy metal. By the end of the decade, Metallica was established as the pioneer of modern metal, but the band hadn't done anything innovative, arguably, in ten years. In April 1999, the group performed two concerts with the San Francisco Symphony, and the result was S&M, a two-disc collection of the concerts. Overall, the album successfully pairs violin strings with guitar strings, but it's no surprise that the best tracks here are the older songs; their multi-layered, compositional style works well with symphonic arrangements. "Master of Puppets," "Call of the Ktulu," "One," and "For Whom the Bell Tolls" sound richer and fuller with violin, trumpet, clarinet, harp, trombone, and flute accompaniments, but "Sad but True," "Devil's Dance," and especially "Of Wolf and Man" range from haphazard and melodramatic to uninspired. S&M definitely has its moments, and not just with the pre-Black Album material: "Fuel" surpasses the furious pumping energy of the studio version, "Hero of the Day" stays poignant throughout, and "Until It Sleeps" has a wonderfully sinister feel. James Hetfield maintains his madman persona from beginning to end, laughing maniacally and grunting and growling at all the right moments. Overall, the symphony adds a macabre, ghoulish atmosphere -- it all sounds like a Broadway freak show or a revved-up Danny Elfman nightmare. Which is exactly what a Metallica album should sound like, even if every song isn't the best (or most appropriate) in the band's catalog. Gina Boldman
