Review/专辑评论


乐评:欲望弥撒 ——转载自“奇幻音域”

一般人们用COLDWAVE来描述DIARY OF DREAM的声音.COLD当是指冷冰冰的电子舞曲,WAVE则是DARKWAVE了.DOD就是这两种风格的结合产物.如今乐团已成为COLDWAVE圈里的领军人物之一.虽然COLDWAVE常常只被算做黑电里一个小小的分支,并且经常被与EBM混为一谈.不过随着九十年代末二十一世纪初黑电在欧洲的复兴,EBM,COLDWAVE又再次在阴暗圈里火了起来.不少乐团甚至从地下走到了地上,一夜之间变得家喻户晓.

以往的DOD都以明快而旋律化的电感见长,这与乐团主脑ANDRIAN HATES的审美理念有关.众所周知,DOD的作品都是在ANDRIAN自己的厂牌ACCESSION RECORDS下发行的.而AR却并不是一个单纯的黑电厂牌.ANGEL OF VENICE,LADY BESERY’S GARDEN这些团都在AR旗下发过作品.从歌特摇滚,暗潮到新古典,新世纪.ANDRIAN的审美情趣似乎偏向一些明快而悦耳的元素.DOD的历史不算太长,早期还偏向DARKWAVE一些,感觉有些极度阴暗的冲击.随这时间的推移,乐团的声音越来越电化,旋律也越来越明快.如果不是那些晦涩而阴郁的主题和主唱不近人情的机械化唱腔,DOD真的可以成为一支主流的电子舞曲乐团了.

死亡的呼唤,悲伤的灵魂Hello火红 @ Feb 10, 2007

——与死亡招手“Hello”

听到那从阴郁的幽暗里传来的声音时,我的灵魂便追随着那在黑暗里才能捕捉到的唯美的东西,与她一同沉入深渊........而后又缓缓的摇扬而起,此时她迁引着痛苦与她盘缠,随着一声冲破心灵的呐喊,释放了人性深处压抑了太久的东西,情绪将于癫狂,而却又异常地清醒和冷静,明白得到了她的安抚。那一刹间,你对世事忽然看得那么清楚。你终于永远也不会失望了,因为你终于绝望了........

快乐让人肤浅,而痛苦让人深刻。 还有多少苦痛可以叙述,叙述中我获得生的权利。迎面而来的又是死亡的召唤,我急促不安,急促不安 ........

由悲剧世界观引申出来的悲剧艺术
“痛苦和毁灭,与痛苦相嬉戏,从人生的悲剧性中获得审美快感”。悲剧看成是“灿烂辉煌的”,一种“形而上的安慰艺术”,为了阐述“悲剧性”的实质,音乐作为一种 “形而上的绝望”的载体来表现死亡美学,是有其必然性。一个可以让人逃离现实而进入的幻想世界,一个黑暗而浪漫的世界。


时间在夜幕中
滴答滴答,
变幻死亡的魔法,
声声凄凄敲碎了梦
难眠的灵魂,
在煎熬中瞧见了,
她最妖艳的容貌……

《My Immortal 不朽》曲风凄美,将提琴和钢琴的幽柔共鸣做了最佳注解。


歌词 Lyrics

我倦待于此 如孩童被惊恐压抑
假如你无法停留 那请立即离开
你的音容还在这 游荡 未曾抛弃我

创伤似乎无法治愈 疼痛太过真实
连时间都无法抚平

你哭泣时,我曾为你擦拭
你惊叫时,我曾为你驱赶
还有我们携手走过的岁月 你都不曾失去我

你的温和荣耀曾迷惑着我
但此刻我跌入失去你的境地
你的笑容捕获我幸喜的梦境
你的一言俘掠我所有的理智

我强逼自己认清你已离去
然而你还在四周 围绕孑然独身的我

你哭泣时,我曾为你擦拭
你惊叫时,我曾为你驱赶
还有我们携手走过的岁月 你都不曾失去我


Going Under 此曲够激昂


Hello

Angels And Airwaves - We Don't Need To Whisper凡尔赛玫瑰 @ Oct 5, 2006


How do you know that former blink-182 leader Tom DeLonge intends for his post-blink project Angels and Airwaves to be taken seriously? Because throughout their debut album, We Don't Need to Whisper, he relies on sounds and textures borrowed from 1988, the era when college rock was filled with atmospheric sonics and earnest politics. Specifically, he layers delayed guitars ripped from U2 over soundscapes equally inspired by the Cure, New order, Peter Gabriel, and The Unforgettable Fire, all in an attempt to fashion a modern-day protest record. Lord knows it's an admirable break from his juvenile past, but good intentions don't necessarily make for good music, as We Don't Need to Whisper makes abundantly clear. DeLonge's main problem is that by relying on '80s college rock as his template, he's fallen into a lot of traps that have made albums of that era sound hopelessly dated: overlong intros, lasting upward of 90 seconds; formless songs that never seem to peak, only drift; cold keyboards that work a factory preset too heavily; an over-reliance on delay pedals, not just on the guitars (which never once sound like anybody other than the Edge), but on the keyboards, which has the unfortunate side effect of making the somber "Distraction" sound like an homage to Paul McCartney's gleefully moronic "Wonderful Christmas Time." That's not the only unintentional chuckle here -- DeLonge's thin, nasal voice cuts against the moody murk of his band, as if he were a little kid recording over his big brother's music. It also doesn't help that his screeds about war, society, and life are overly written, with words piling on top of each other in free-form song structures that tend to collapse under the weight of his ambition. Since DeLonge was starting to edge toward an interesting fusion of dark post-punk, tuneful pop-punk, and mature concerns on the last blink-182 album, such an over-reach is a disappointment, but it is understandable; it's a classic case of post-breakup indulgence. It may not make for a successful record, but it does make for an interesting one, particularly in how DeLonge's desire to be taken seriously has led him to use the serious music of his adolescence as a signifier that he's serious now, but We Don't Need to Whisper is too doggedly dour and amorphous to be more than a curiosity.

Nickelback - All The Right Reasons (Mp3 Download)凡尔赛玫瑰 @ Oct 5, 2006


With their fourth album, All the Right Reasons, Nickelback ditches any pretense of being a grunge band and finally acknowledges they're a straight-up heavy rock band. Not that they've left the angst of grunge behind: they're a modern rock band living in a post-grunge world, so there's lots of tortured emotions threaded throughout the 11 songs here. But where their previous albums roiled with anger -- their breakthrough "How You Remind Me" was not affectionate, it was snide and cynical -- there's a surprisingly large sentimental streak running throughout All the Right Reasons, and it's not just limited to heart-on-sleeve power ballads like "Far Away" and "Savin' Me," the latter being the latest entry in their soundalike sweepstakes. No, lead singer/songwriter Chad Kroeger is in a particularly pensive mood here, looking back fondly at his crazy times in high school on "Photograph" ("Look at this photograph/Every time I do it makes me laugh/How did our eyes get so red?/And what the hell is on Joey's head?"), lamenting the murder of Dimebag Darrell on "Side of a Bullet" (where a Dimebag solo is overdubbed), and, most touching of all, imagining "the day when nobody died" on "If Everyone Cared" (which would be brought about "If everyone cared and nobody cried/If everyone loved and nobody lied"). Appropriately enough for an album that finds Kroeger's emotional palette opening up, Nickelback try a few new things here, adding more pianos, keyboards, and acoustic guitars to not just their ballads, but a few of their big, anthemic rockers; they even sound a little bit light and limber on "Someone That You're With," the fastest tune here and a bit of relief after all the heavy guitars. All this makes for a more varied Nickelback album, but it doesn't really change their essence. Sure, they stretch a little bit, but they still favor clumsy, plodding riffs, still incessantly rewrite the same chords and melody, still harmonize exactly the same way on every song, Kroeger still sounds as if he's singing with a hernia, he still writes shockingly stupid lines that make you long for the days of such subtle double-entendres as "she's using her head again" (such as "She'd be pissed if she could see the parts of you that I've been kissing," "It's just a little hard to leave/When you're going down on me" -- and, mind you, this album does not carry a Parental Advisory sticker, even though "a**holes" is prominently used in two songs), and despite the attempted sarcasm of "Rockstar," he still shows no discernible sense of humor. Which means, despite all their newly developed relative nuances, Nickelback remain unchanged: they're still unspeakably awful.

老鹰乐队94年不插电版现场《加洲旅馆》耗子 @ Jul 6, 2006

影响一代人的《加洲旅馆》
  《加州旅馆》自面世开始,立即就引来很多的质疑与批评。尽管谁也不敢夸口说自己的理解是正解版本,但歌词中明显的吸毒、性乱、邪教等暗示还是引起道德卫士的不满,并且在美国数州受到宗教团体的杯葛。不过,《加州旅馆》歌曲中那成经典的吉他旋律、诡异莫名的歌词内容、感人心弦的悲世情怀,使得这首《加州旅馆》神秘永远,成为最爱。


歌词:
On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy, and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be Heaven or this could be Hell
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say


Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely place (background)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year
Any time of year (background)
You can find it here
You can find it here


Her mind is Tiffany twisted
She's got the Mercedes bends
She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget
So I called up the Captain
Please bring me my wine
He said
We haven't had that spirit here since 1969
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say


Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely Place
Such a lovely Place (background)
Such a lovely face
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise
What a nice surprise (background)
Bring your alibies


Mirrors on the ceiling
Depict champaign on ice
And she said
We are all just prisoners here
Of our own device
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast
Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
Relax said the nightman
We are programed to recieve
You can check out any time you like


  雄鹰乐队成立于1971年,组团之初一共 有四个成员,主唱兼鼓手唐·亨利(Don He- nley),主唱吉它兼键盘葛伦·佛莱(Genn Frey),吉它手班尼·林登,贝司手伦第· 麦斯勒。 组成乐团构想人是唐·亨利和葛伦·佛 莱,二人是1971年在吟游诗人俱乐部认识的, 后来认识了班尼和伦第,四个小伙子志同道 和,满腔热血,雄鹰乐队应运而生。
  乐团成立后,他们超强的实力,一开始 就受到了许多歌迷的爱戴,乐团每个团员都 擅长写曲,而且每个团员都有很好的演唱技 巧,都能胜任演唱一角,自然乐队在和声及 编曲方面技高一筹。
  1972年乐团在伦敦完成了第一张专辑, 作品充满了典型的乡村摇滚风格。代表作《 Take It Easy》在当年夏天横扫整个美国。 拉着他们又推出了一张具有整体概念的唱片 专辑《Desperado》。
  1974年唐·费尔德加入了乐团,这使乐 团阵容更为强大,唐·费尔德与班尼·林登 原是佛罗里达的同学,在吉它演奏上很有造 诣,他的加入使乐团伴奏声部更加丰满,而 且还提升了乐队团的创作素质。
  同年4 月当 《On The Border》 推出后,雄鹰更向前迈 进了一步,进入了超级乐团行列并使他们在 葛莱美奖中获得两项提名。
  1976年班尼·林登离队由乔·沃什接替。
  1977年伦第·麦斯纳也决定离队,由摩西· B·苏特接任。70年代中期“雄鹰”乐团一连串出击都 获得了满堂彩,《One Of These Night》获 得了5周冠军,《New Kid In Town》入榜第 一周便升上了48名,还有大家都很熟悉的《 加州旅馆》(Hotel California),在1977 年获得8 周冠军,歌曲特殊之处在于唐·费 尔德与乔·沃什所的双吉它效果。它可以说 是雄鹰在最佳状态,最佳组合之下完成的一首旷世之作,它的销量突破了1500万张。雄鹰可以说是美国最伟大的摇滚乐团。
  在走过了一系列辉煌成就之后,“雄鹰 ”乐队开始走下坡路,其成员变动造成不稳 定因素,核心人物唐·亨利与葛伦·佛莱意 见不和。
  乐队于1982年发行了最后一张集锦 唱片后宣布解散。
