 Maximum Joy: Unlimited (1979-1983) - PopMatters Music Review
Musically, the group's use of complex percussion, horns, danceable bass lines, and overtly English female vocals built a bridge between the worlds of Afrobeat, reggae, avant-garde jazz, funk, and pop.
It might be appropriate to call the group's genre-bending blend of sounds "world music", if that term wasn't associated with so much boring music.
Maximum Joy's music is more exciting and adventurous than what passes for "world music" today, and is most aptly compared to the output of other experimental acts of the post-punk era such as the Pop Group, the Slits, Rip Rig & Panic, and New Age Steppers.

 Leonard Cohen: Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979 - PopMatters Music Review
Over three decades later, Cohen enjoys the dubious honor of being best known as pop music's undefeated champion miserablist, an artist who was singing spectacularly depressing songs when latter-day camp melancholics like Morrissey were still moping around in short trousers.
And on the basis of that reputation as rock's most enduringly gloomy lyricist (with a voice to match), his oeuvre has become required listening for generations of students in darkened rooms the world over.
While there may be more than a grain of truth to such assessments of his later recordings and while the Leonard-Cohen-as-arch-poet-of-misery stereotype certainly has some basis in reality, such characterizations don't really do full justice to the man and his work.

 Bob Dylan's Christian Music, 1979-81
It's not because of the music, which is warm and inviting gospel-rock sung with conviction (particularly his reworking of the gospel standard "A Satisfied Mind," featuring his female backup singers intonating a soulful "mmmmm" underneath his melody).
Dylan's mid-to-late '70s and early '80s music gave us some of the singer's best vocal performances -- since the beginning, his voice has been a point of contention among those who either love or hate him, and on Shot of Love he uses his famous nasality to great effect.
His voice during this period was deeper and fuller than his signature '60s style, but not quite as weirdly affected and drug-damaged as it was on Nashville Skyline, and not anywhere near as fried and wheedly as it would become in the '90s.

 1979 Music Man Stingray   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Leo Fender refused to rest on his laurels after selling Fender Musical Instruments to CBS in 1965, and he went to work on the Music Man StingRay shortly after his consulting contract with CBS ran out.
This ash- or alder-body instrument with a bolt-on maple neck was first marketed in 1976, and the early models had strings that passed through the body-a feature found on P-Basses made between 1951 and '57.
Queen's John Deacon took a more melodic approach to his Music Man, and Pino Palladino's superb work on a fretless StingRay has shown another side of the instrument's up-front tone.

It's an indication of his bravura, and possibly his self-absorption, that Fosse (who also cowrote the script) literally opens alter ego Joe Gideon's heart in a key scene--an unflinching glimpse of cardiac surgery, shot during an actual open-heart procedure.
Fosse/Gideon's collision course with mortality, as well as his priapic obsession with the opposite sex, may offer clues into the libidinal core of the choreographer's dynamic, sexualized style of dance, but musical aficionados will be forgiven for fast-forwarding to cut out the self-analysis and focus on the music, period.
At its best--as in the knockout opening, scored to George Benson's strutting version of "On Broadway," which fuses music, dance, and dazzling camera work into a paean to Fosse's hoofer nation--All That Jazz offers a sequence of classic Fosse numbers, hard-edged, caustic, and joyously physical.
