20080901 Brett Anderson – Wilderness

专辑名称:Wilderness
歌手姓名:Brett Anderson
唱片公司:BA Sons
发行日期:2008年9月2日
专辑流派:Indie / Alternative

Brett Anderson是原Suede乐队的主唱 这是他个人的第二张专辑
他是一个在伦敦定居的挪威人 看这张唱片的封套 你大概会猜想这应该是一张很英伦的摇滚
其实不然 这张唱片的风格是那种很安静的Alternative 几乎通通是在钢琴的铺垫下的清唱
连鼓声都出现的很少 仅仅在其中的一首歌中出现了手鼓的声音 所以通篇显得沉静甚至有些忧郁
Brett Anderson的声音有些妖媚 也可以说是性感 说实在的 个人对他这种声音不是很接受
但是这张唱片的风格是我大爱的型 可以当作催眠之用 或者 仅仅是在深夜里独自聆听
下文中有转自新浪的一篇乐评 仅供参考 推荐大家听听

专辑介绍:

UK pressing released in a deluxe heavyweight board digipak complete with a 12-page lyric booklet. Limited to 1900 copies. Sophomore album from the former lead singer of Suede. ‘I made this album with the purest of intentions: to create a beautiful suite of songs untethered by second-guessing markets and playlists and music biz bs. I have no record company, no publisher and a smaller audience but I have never been more confident and focused about what I am doing as an artist’ – Brett Anderson, June 2008. Recorded and mixed in 7 days and featuring only voice, strings and piano, ‘Wilderness’ is the new album from Brett Anderson and heralds an amazing new chapter in his life. Throughout his career it would be fair to say that Brett Anderson has never done anything by halves. At strategic points he has performed such a volte- face with his music that it has sometimes been hard for fans and critics to know what he is going to do next. This record is no exception, and is the most astounding record Brett has made in his entire career. ‘Wilderness’ may well be the most haunting record you will hear all year. Detailing a love affair, the record displays all the heightened emotions of love and thus is joyous, bleak, euphoric, and reflective – and very beautiful. It’s a record that is intense and stands outside of the mainstream and is all the better for it. Like all classic albums, its an album Brett Anderson had to make at this point in his life. BA Songs. 2008.

这绝对是08年又一大事,Wilderness作为Brett Anderson的第二张个人专辑,初版将以USB型式推出,连同7月7日于Mermaid Theatre演出的门票一同发售,而大碟的CD将稍后发行。
BA又回来了,温柔如水……
Wilderness中通篇配器是钢琴加提琴或者木吉他,此外鼓也只出现了一次,也是在第六首funeral mantra里,大概是手鼓之类的而不是架子鼓。BA那深情的嗓音依旧,但是很难觅到Suede时的妖艳了,专辑听起来像在品一杯香茗,却一点也不觉得平淡,相反定会让人泪湿衣襟,不可错过!

还记得布莱特·安徒生发表上张同名专辑的时候,许多人都说这哥们儿已经不行了。这话说的没错,但您别忘了,你没法要求一个40岁的人还能像20多岁时一样身强体壮、精血皆旺。一个艺人在优秀,也抵挡不住年轻的摧残。可能是他意识到年龄的问题,又觉得自己还想好好唱歌,所以不光戒掉毒品,甚至还戒掉了咖啡,每天勤洗手、多通风、人多不去凑热闹,过着早睡早起健康生活,以减缓眼角皱纹层数增加。

  从音乐上来讲,Brett Anderson的个人作品和当年Suede的乐队作品比起来,就是越来越没有冲劲儿了,上一张专辑当中还有几首以乐队为创作基础的作品,而这张专辑的编曲则大多以钢琴和弦乐为主,将他个人对拉赫玛尼诺夫的喜爱表达的淋漓尽致。

  值得一提的有两处。一个是与他合作了《Clowns》、《Back to You》的Fred Ball,这哥们儿1977年生于挪威,90年代初定居伦敦,是一位小有名气的创作型歌手兼制作人,最有名的作品不是自己的专辑,而是为KT Tunstall打造的《Universe & U》,不过这次与Brett Anderson的合作并没有显现出太多过人之处。另一个是一首与中国有关的歌,叫《Chinese Whispers》。这个词的本意指的就是一种咱们每个人都玩过的游戏,给你一句话,一个个往后传,传到最后看看和最初那个人听到的有多大差别。这还是一个叫白晓红的驻英记者也写过的一本讲述中国劳工在英国艰苦奋斗的报告文学。如果光看歌词,Brett Anderson很有可能讲的就是看完这本书的感受,虽然提到了东方绘画以及蒙古利亚,但貌似和中国自身的风土人情没有太大关系。
