Moon, Light & Flowers是Michael Cretu的首张个人专辑. 在此前一年里, 他发表了两首单曲, Shadows Over My Head 和 Wild River. 这一阶段20出头的他刚刚拿到音乐学位. Cretu极具音乐天赋, 为了成为一名钢琴家或者指挥家而苦学多年, 但是最终他选择了与此截然不同的方向.
本专辑在多个国家发行,好评如潮. 风格上像Moonlight Flower开场使人联想到Vangelis, 随后渐趋平静祥和. Shadows Over My Head的背景声, 隐隐显出Enigma早在1978年已经初具雏形, 但此曲本身更为直接,有著其他的一些电子音乐的影响.
Moonlight Flower, 齐豫有翻唱. 阿桑的寂寞在唱歌, 则大家可能更为熟悉吧. 好了, 洗好耳朵,开始聆听吧~
Moon, Light & Flowers was the first solo album by Michael Cretu. The prior year he had released two singles, namely Shadows Over My Head and Wild River. At this point he was in his early 20s and had just earned a degree in music. Cretu was considered musically gifted and had studied to become a concert pianist as well as conductor, but ultimately he decided to go in a different direction.
The album was fairly well received and saw release in various countries. Stylistically a track like Moonlight Flower opens with something leading the thoughts towards Vangelis, then turns into a calm and peaceful song. Shadows Over My Head has some background sounds hinting slightly at Enigma already here in 1978, but the song itself is more straight-forward with some other electronic influences.
