23.06.2008 | 糾纏滋味

一味食食食之余, 今日為大家介紹呢張專輯.. 加拿大搖滾女王Alanis Morissette剛剛推出嘅呢張2008全新大碟《Flavors of Entanglement》..

其實由佢嗰張贏盡銷量口碑獎項嘅《Jagged Little Pills》開始留意同埋中意佢嘅音樂, 係嗰種好憤怒勢死要報服嘅心態(如果你聽過"You Oughta Know"應該知我講緊乜嘢).. 嚟到呢張大碟, 雖然係收斂咗好多好多, 但係都仍然係抱住嗰種「我失戀你唔夠我痛苦」嘅情懷, 歌詞首首寫得針拮肉..

今次起用新製作人Guys Sigsworth(同Madonna, Bjork合作過), 果然有火花, 比起上一張瀕臨瓶頸嘅《So Called Chaos》, 呢張算係頗精彩, 有種氣勢回歸嘅感覺.. 新碟多咗啲AM一路以嚟冇嘅音樂元素(techno, loop, electro等), 融入AM一貫風格, 卻又出奇漂亮.. 當然專輯裡頭都有保留AM一貫嘅抒情搖滾, 其中《Not As We》喺簡單鋼琴伴奏之下萎萎唱出"from scratch begin again, but this time i as i and not as we", 簡直係嵌入心坎, 一聽就中意.. 其他推薦包括《Citizen of The Planet》《Straitjacket》《Torch》..


have been a follower for Alanis Morissette's music since her multi-platinum award-winning album "Jagged Little Pill".. and here comes her new studio album "Flavors of Entanglement" since 2004, though not as furious and angry (you'll know what i meant if you've ever heard the revengeful "You Oughta Know"), still her lyrics are always no-one-hurt-more-deeply-as-i-did.. AM collaborated with new producer Guys Sigsworth (Madonna, Bjork), somehow gave sparks to this new album, as compared to her boring previous album "So Called Chaos", new elements have been introduced into her music (eg: techno, loop, electro), but blended well into her signature style.. of course, her soft-rock ballad are still kept in this album, with the barely piano arrangment she sings "from scratch begin again, but this time i as i and not as we" so heartfeltly in the song "Not As We" - yeah, she might have lose Ryan Reynolds to Scarlett Johansson, but she certainly wins lots of hearts with this beautiful song, i just love it.. amongst other songs i fancy are "Citizens of The Planet" , "Straitjacket" and "Torch"..
