简介



专辑介绍:

「生命万岁」Coldplay如此标帜著。

事实上这张继《X & Y》后睽违三年的专辑全名是《Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends》(生命万岁或死亡紧随)意外地不採用传说已久的《Prospekt》而将灵感放诸於墨西哥超现实主义的女画家Frida
Kahlo的同名画作【Viva La Vida】也就是电影【挥洒烈爱】(Frida) 的主角。(不过说真的我还宁愿他们用《Prospekt》不觉得很有朝气吗)

Coldplay "Viva La Vida"

Chris Martin说他欣赏Frida Kahlo的大胆与痛苦挣扎的生命精神而专辑封面则採用浪漫主义画家Eugene Delacroix的画作【Liberty Leading the People】翻版。在专辑名与名称几乎都是「借来」的情况下幸好歌词的部份有所创新更抽象的辞藻如〈Viva La Vida〉延引了许多历史与宗教的意象可仔细研读下去。

Coldplay此回换掉长期合作的制作人Ken Nelson请来以U2《The Joshua Tree》闻名的制作人Brian Eno担纲。目前听来甚有Brian擅长的繁复壮阔弦乐编制但就免费赠送的单曲〈Violet Hill〉来说有些许旋律普通的疑虑很怕他们这张就跟Death Cab For Cutie新辑《Narrow Stairs》有弱掉之嫌。

Coldplay - Violet Hill Viral (Dancing Politicians)
比较酷的版本嘲讽政客玩弄社会If you love me / Won't you let me go让他们随著Coldplay的歌起舞剪接够帅气

彷彿大团都被Radiohead吓怕了宣传造势都得更有噱头才行这次Coldplay不但直接在NME杂誌里赠送市面上无发行的七吋黑胶 (哇靠我的妈还真想要)收录〈Violet Hill〉还有新专辑根本没收的新歌〈A Spell A Rebel Yell〉更加了两场免费的表演只要上官网登录就有机会抽到分别在伦敦的Brixton Academy (June 16)、纽约的Madison Square Garden (June 23)最大奖是一名免费包办机票食宿送你到纽约的乐迷这样够猛了吧。

前几天我还发现iGoogle的艺术家主题有Coldplay连忙立刻换了它 (霎时忘记我有抱怨这张封面俗到普通)有兴趣的朋友也来玩吧。

让我再次爱上 ColdplayViva la Vida !
分享: 7Headlines facebook PLURK twitter
我说过我不算是 Coldplay 的粉丝因为我觉得定义上是要「乜叉都照单全收」式的中意才算是粉丝。而 Coldplay 的音乐我只喜爱八年前的 debut 大碟【Parachutes】所以我未有资格。

今次的第五张大碟【Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends】a.k.a. 【Viva La Vida】却叫我重新思考过这个想法。我站在 HMV 的唱片架前试听了几首新曲已使我暗下了决定对自己说要就凭这张碟甚至只是这张碟内其中几首歌便已足以让我再次爱上 Coldplay

我如此激动可能因为打从第一首带 Dire Straits 风格的纯音乐演奏曲《Life in Technicolor》便经已感动了我。那跳跃出来的生命力是如此的迷人

但如果要对这隻碟的 rich 和 vibrant 有更深的感受就一定要先听听主题曲《Viva La Vida》。如网友 nikitac 所说这真是「耳目一新」。既有活力、跳跃又逍遥一改以往的沉鬱。听完此曲后跟著那一首原本不甚上心的《Violet Hill》早前免费下载的那首也顺耳得多

小猫咪又一阵子没介绍西洋乐了!!
这阵子小猫咪最爱的歌是Coldplay的Viva la Vida
很久没有这么喜欢一首歌 甚至是感动
不过不是被它的歌词而感动 是被它的旋律
小猫咪只要听到前奏 就会起鸡皮疙瘩!!
彷彿自己也跟著Coldplay参与了一个王朝的兴起和没落

Viva la Vida是西班牙文
诗诗特地请教了一下西班牙朋友Hector这几个字的意思
Viva la Vida是西班牙人在很高兴的情况下会说的话
有点像我们台湾人说"YA~~万岁~~~"
而正式的意思是"活在当下"

Viva la Vida的歌词意思有点艰深
连英美歌迷都不是很了解Coldplay所要表达的意境为何
我看了一下外国的讨论区
出现了许多的版本及不同的意见
有人认为这首歌是在描写拿破崙 有的认为是King Henry VIII
或是十字军要返回耶路撒冷
总而言之 这首歌的大概意思是描写一个王朝的兴起与没落
歌词中的国王可以是拿破崙 可以是亨利八世
也可以是Coldplay 甚至是你自己

期待已久Viva la Vida的官方正式mv已经出来了喔!!
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
Once you know there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world
(Ohhh)

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries Wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

第二首《Cemeteries of London》让我想起我异常喜欢的 U2 sound。这也难怪。看内页才知原来 U2 的监制 Brian Uno 今次也有份监制这张碟。而且的确亦一向有人打从 Coldplay 出道时已说它们像 U2。但今次 Coldplay 却不只有疑似 U2 的结他声。如第三首《Lost!》除了有招牌结他声更有拍掌声有键琴还有管风琴音乐元素丰富之极但我更喜欢以下这钢琴版是日本版的大碟才有的。

除了钢琴版的《Lost!》第四首《42》也有钢琴元素。《42》是一首很有趣的作品。起首像 Radiohead但中段却有点 Beatles 的影子。

另外今次除了编曲丰富 / 层次感厚之外也加进了不少疑似东方的味道。第六首《Yes》有一段似二胡的小提琴去拉出一段中东音乐。第九首《Strawberry Swing》的前奏的一段结他声更立时让我想起国语时代曲。而且更有一首曲叫作《Lovers in Japan》另一首叫作《Chinese Sleep Chant》。不知与他们今次很多时候都在 World Tour 时写歌有没有关係

《Death And All His Friends》是一首似 Queen 的兴奋作品。兴奋过后慢慢 lead into 最后的 hidden track《The Escapist》一首很配用来做完场的音乐。而且曲风和音韵与《Life in Technicolor》首尾呼应让整个 project 完美落幕。

总括而言【Viva La Vida】既大胆创新却又延续了Chris Martin 与 Coldplay 一贯的情怀。我觉得商业上这张碟会比【X&Y】更成功。唯一的遗憾是可能因为多了一点商业的计算所以到处的一点一滴都使我找到 Queen、Beatles、Radiohead、U2 甚至 Dire Straits 的影子。不过更重要的是我感受到 Coldplay 已慢慢变得更成熟应该可凭这张碟开始可以攀上如 U2 般级数的伟大乐队而不是只另一队畅销乐队这样简单

4.0 out of 5 starsViviendo La Vida!
By Rudy Palma on June 17, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Coldplay has turned in another solid effort with its 4th studio album, the indecisively-titled "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends," but they expand their boundaries this time. Gone is the predictability of tightly-wound, highly catchy 4 minute arena pop/rock anthems marching in succession, not to mention the sensitive male singer/songwriter clichés and often dial-by-numbers production values. The British quartet has traded that solid but stagnant formula for artsy experimentation, and the results are commendable, even if their enlisting legendary studio wizard Brian Eno to bolster the LP's ethereal, left-field sound is in and of itself predictable. These songs do not lend themselves to radio playlists in the vein of "Clocks" or "Talk," but the album is their most intriguing and memorable. The results are a little less Phil Collins, a little more Peter Gabriel.

The highly digitized, nearly instrumental "Life In Technicolor" opens the album on a high note with sweeping Middle-Eastern instrumentation and loopy, buoyant beats. Immediately ascertainable is that this is not an album that can safely grace the intercom of the local ShopRite. With hand claps and frothy production values behind a droning, funereal organ, "Lost!" is a poignant, yearning ode to finding salvation and a new lease on life. Accented by just the right amount of electric guitar, the intriguing, atypical track not only rocks and invigorates but finds these talented musicians trying for something new and succeeding, underscoring the album's unexpectedly adventurous direction.

With its soul-searching sentiments and sizzling melody, chugging lead single "Viva La Vida" is the only track that oozes mainstream appeal with its sweeping, gorgeously evocative melody that has landed it at #1 on the Billboard pop charts. In that light, it is classic Coldplay and, amazingly, their first Top 5 hit. Even alternate lead single "Violet Hill," a Top 40 hit, defies radio programmers with its mercurial tempo and deep, adventurous lyrics. Singer Chris Martin, however, has never sounded more confident in his delivery, and the band's playing skills have never been demonstrated so impressively in-studio. These four guys sound truly in-sync, and rather than burying their sound Eno smartly accentuates it, bringing out the essence of the songs.

The plaintive "42" is another awesome outing. After 90 seconds of mellow piano and dark lyrics the song zooms into a succession of production swirls, fast melody swings and snazzy electric guitars. It is not only a marvel, but worth many listens. "Lovers In Japan" is also a winner with its sunny, bristly melody - the way Martin wraps his vocals around the proceedings is a pleasure to hear. The thunderous ode to peace that is "Death and All His Friends" is also a highlight as it closes the album before revealing a hidden track titled "The Escapist," a mellow finale set to the tune of "Life In Technicolor."

The men of Coldplay will likely lose fans who prize clear-cut ear candy over adventurousness, yet will surely gain respect from those who had previously written them off as creators of slick but predictable radio-savvy pop/rock. What's for sure, however, is that this is their most interesting outing to date.

The painting on the album covers is "Liberty Leading the People (La Liberté guidant le peuple)" by French artist Eugène Delacroix depicting the July Revolution of 1830.
