传记

经常看日本电影的人都会熟悉“暴力美学”这个概念。这是一个左手执菊,右手握刀的民族。Mono身上恰恰凝聚涵概了太多此类的意向。他们的后摇极端残酷,往往比Mogwai的爆发来得更不计后果,也更为另人绝望。而且,Mono的作品大部分都有着无比宏大的结构,堪称后摇界里的“交响乐”。这些年来,经过4张专辑的推出,Mono以他们独有的姿态走进了越来越多人的耳朵和心里。乐队的第5张正式专辑You Are There,已于四月初由Temporary Residence发行。

  You Are There是由2003年的专辑Walking Cloud and Deep Red Sky, Flag Fluttered and the Sun Shined的制作人Steve Albini再次挎刀制作完成,在结构编排上沿袭了Mono一贯大气磅礴极富戏剧性跌宕起伏的曲风,由漫长的篇章书写失落、绝望的情绪,这是他们最擅长的手法。专辑由6首作品构成,总长整整60分钟,长度跨度由3分多种到15分38秒,四首10分钟以上的作品,长短穿插,几乎没有一分钟是浪费的,整张听下来相当过瘾。这同样是一张十分吵闹的专辑,Mon o在制造噪音方面的造诣真是越发高超了,四首长作品尤其出彩,均为严谨的quiet-loud-quiet结构:缓慢的铺陈,渐进的爆发,毁灭式的高潮,之后是被扩大的背景噪音,最终归于沉没。听Mono的作品你确实需要足够的耐心,漫长的铺垫有如寂静黑夜中你独行于海上,既看不到远方的灯塔,也嗅不出暴风雨的前兆。等待,冗长的孤独,无穷尽的黑暗。但一旦高潮到来,你便会忽略在此之前的一切平淡,死而无憾。这便是他们在作曲、录音以及表演手法上和交响乐创作暗合的精髓。在长作品的处理上,Mono日趋成熟饱满,较02年的One Step More and You

  Die,已经不再是那时单纯的疯狂宣泄了,情绪的发展路线越发细腻,使听者仿佛身心是随着一场电影动荡震颤。听者会不自觉地融入到他们构造的世界里,在其中沉浸、旋转、飞升和坠落,体验悲剧的黑暗色彩,体验现世的凄苦味道。6年了,多少企图模仿超越Mono的后摇乐队还在他们筑起的那座大山上艰辛的攀爬,而Mono依然旗帜鲜明的站在顶峰,一览众山小。

  Mono经常被一些人喻为是“日本的Explosions in the Sky”。我觉得这个说法其实特别业余。总不能因为这两个乐队是差不多年月组建的,都是做三大件Post-rock的,就说人家俩乐队是一样的吧。Mono在三大件的基础上还经常运用到弦乐,这是在天空大爆炸的作品中不曾有过的;其次,天空大爆炸的作品中会出现明显的温情气息,近几年尤其夸张,“爆”的成分已经越来越稀少了,而Mono从不走温情路线,这么多年来一直保持着那副“铁石心肠”的姿态,外表冷漠,内心更为冷漠,音乐中始终只有静与动、快与慢之分别,而氛围永远都是冷调的。再次,抛开谁比谁大牌的顾虑,我个人认为,Mono的音乐较天空大爆炸的更为大气——事实上,Mono的作品是后摇滚界里数一数二的大气,如果真要论谁有资格跟他们比个高下,我想也就剩下Godspeed You! Black Emperor了。综观Mono这些年来的几张专辑,你会发现他们似乎从来没做过特别唐突而突兀的改变,今年的You Are

    I'm really enjoying the new albums. I have a few criticisms (I think RoD should be 1 track longer and they should have used Tetsuya's vocals on the whole album or not at all) but the refreshingly short songs are great and I absolutely love the noise elements in songs like Cyclone and The Last Rays. I think Surrender is my favourite track though.

    I liked "For My Parents" because it was a different direction. But I appreciate that it was only a one-album-experiment, the new double album went back to Mono's usual awesomeness.

    a_spaceman: Yes, true. Actually I didn't really refer to people who critisize stuff (like you or Derek-H), but simply complain. Most people are like "I wish band xy would be like they used to be 10 years ago" or "Teh nu album is shitz lel". Bands needs to go on and evolve _in any direction_. And music is art, like you said, and bands (at least) shouldn't do what the fans want them to do. Despite that, it would get _really_ boring if any band always makes albums which sound like the previous one.

    @ Kumanosuke: I don't think anyone's saying that. I personally (really) enjoy every Mono album outside of For My Parents, which is in fact a little too "cinematic" / OST-esque for my tastes. (Just my opinion.) That being said, I'd say the new albums are a huge step in a better direction.

    Complaining without constructive criticism can be dumb, but saying For My Parents had too many strings (or more precisely, didn't execute neo-classical elements well, which is what I would argue) or sounded to cheesy to you personally kind of... IS constructive criticism, and there's nothing wrong with that. Music is art and art is open to the world for criticism, and there's no reason for negative reviews or reception of an album you personally enjoy to get you down or cause you yourself to complain, you know?

    @Foln: Yes, I agree on that, but I don't get why people always complain. It's art and artists won't make their music after what some fans may like, but what they themself want it to sound like.

    My limited edition die-cut The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness vinyl came in the mail the other day, and while I can't hear the album in it's fullest splendor, I'm listening to the mp3 version included and... The Last Dawn is starting off pretty damn great. Already impressed.

    @Kuma: Why do you even care? Either YOU like it or YOU like it not. End of the story. Simple as that.

    I love this band. I have the hope to see them live in my country, Chile. We're so far away but i don't lose hope. Their music ALWAYS brings me a lot of feelings, and, suddenly, makes me cry. Also, Rays of Darkness is absolutely perfect.

    @Prognoz_ I reckon the best tracks are Recoil Ignite, Where We Begin, The Last Rays, The Hand That Holds the Truth and maybe Cyclone. Happy listening ^^
