[music] 所謂樂評

Brett Anderson

近日聽the tears

聽到the tears的心情是感動的。相信許多suede樂迷與我有相同心情。當suede在他們的官網宣佈要解散的那一刻,樂迷的心也跟著碎了。那篇分手聲明寫得既灑脫又美麗,一點不顧樂迷們的失落與失望。(應當也顧不得那許多了。)(如果有人找到分手聲明煩請通知,我再貼過來)

所謂的樂評文章有時都常看到麻痺,過於豐美華麗的辭藻層層堆砌,甚至懷疑樂評者是否自己嗑了藥。每天每分每秒,這世界這地球主流大國蕞薾小國各地都有唱片在被製造,有許多音樂等著被聆聽被發生。在這麼多的音樂裡當然要尋找自己喜歡的聲音,所以若不是真想推薦就不要再努力堆砌了,辛苦哇。

當然也有寫得很棒的樂評,入情入理,而且出於真心。一回是朋友推薦給我看的TIME雜誌,那期一個執筆人介紹當期封面人物周杰倫。從他的生長環境及背景,踏入樂壇的機緣與發展,轉變等等,寫得教我為之鼻酸差點噴淚。我也懷疑執筆人是老外還是台灣人,功課做得相當仔細。那篇專題其實不算是樂評,應該是屬於人物的專題範疇。

然後最近查找the tears的東西,看見amg站上一個執筆人Stephen Thomas Erlewine寫他們新專輯的樂評也令我感動。不過與其說是樂評感動了我,倒不如說是他描述Anderson和Butler及Suede之間的來來往往感動了我。

節錄如下:

Few rock & roll breakups have been as plain nasty as Bernard Butler leaving Suede during the final stages of recording their second album, Dog Man Star, in 1994. The guitarist departed abruptly, leaving Butler's co-songwriter, vocalist Brett Anderson, to finish the epic sophomore effort; Anderson was even forced to lay down guitar parts Butler left unrecorded. The bad blood flowed throughout the pages of NME and Melody Maker, with Anderson hiring youthful Butler look-alike Richard Oakes as his replacement guitarist right before the gothic, grandiose epic did a commercial swan dive during the height of hedonistic Britpop...

...It's so good and assured that it confirms the suspicion that Anderson and Butler were destined to be collaborators. They bring out the best in each other and, with any luck, there won't be another 11-year wait for their next album of new material.(全文請點此處)

大致的意思是說,搖滾界很少有人分手時像Butler鬧得那麼難看。1994年,suede才在進行第二張專輯dog man star的錄製工作,Butler卻突然撒手離團,留下原本與他是最佳創作組合-同時身兼主唱-的Anderson獨自收拾殘局。而如今兩人再度攜手合作的作品比起當年的分手作卻猶有過之而無不及,證實他倆是天生注定的最佳搭檔。

My God!
你的資訊太慢了吧!
他們解散很久了!
是我經營新聞台期間的事耶...
那時好像貼了suede的trash歌詞
一個歌迷在留言板告訴我
我才知道
他們當時在官網貼出令人心碎的分手宣言

其實也不算解散
他們把話說得很圓
留下挺多後路
就是說什麼各人有各人計劃
也許未來時機成熟再合作之類的...

不過現在有了the tears
足夠囉

Just walk in, nice blog and glad to see another rock lover :)

I don't know but i just don't like the idea of the tears...when u had been a suede fan and they called for the end...suddenly brett and bernard re-union and left suede behind...I just feel a betrayal here...(my very own feeling)

anyway brett anderson is coming to hong kong and have a live show here...i don't know if i would go for it...

important announcement from the band
suede would like to announce that from next year they will be working on their own individual projects.there will not be a new studio album until the band feel that the moment is artistically right to make one.this announcement does not affect the forthcoming touring commitments. suede would like to thank the fans for their wonderful support over the years.
see you in the next life.


好瀟灑
希望年底可以看到Brett & Jarvis!!
