Past Albums Of The Month

Discover the stories behind our past Albums of the Month with links to playlists, interviews and more.

The Story of Sade ‘Stronger Than Pride’

"Once a song's out there, it's no longer mine. And that's the whole purpose of music: to belong to people." Sade

The Story of Sonic Youth ‘Daydream Nation’

The album that brought grunge to the mainstream and paved the way for 'alternative rock' acts like Pixies, Nirvana, Mudhoney and more.

The Story of Blondie ‘Parallel Lines’

“The only place left for rock to go is toward more girl stars. There's nothing left for men to do. There's bound to be more male stars, but they can't express anything new.” - Debbie Harry

The Story of Jane’s Addiction ‘Nothing’s Shocking’

"Jane's took that classic rock ‘n' roll and metal that Dave and Steve were into and mixed it with Velvet Underground, Iggy and Bowie. We had such an extensive vocabulary to draw from... It was like a science experiment." - Perry Farrell

The Story of Sigur Rós ‘Ágætis Byrjun’

“When you’re in Iceland, you’re just so isolated. But it was a really good time to grow up and play in a band. The only thing you did was just play with your friends and have fun. If you do that and are honest, then probably good things come to you.”

The Story of Public Enemy ‘It Takes a Nation of Millions...

If The Velvet Underground were punk’s DIY flashpoint, Public Enemy was undoubtedly the hip hop equivalent. This album is a vital artery of contemporary counter-culture in rap and beyond.

The Story of LCD Soundsystem ‘Sound Of Silver’

A modern classic that defined early 21st century New York City.

The Story of The Wailers ‘Burnin”

A defining crossover moment for Jamaican music and The Wailers and in particular Bob Marley's rise to global stardom.

The Story of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds ‘The Boatman’s...

A sparse, emotive and heartfelt masterpiece from one of the great lyricists in popular music.
