专辑介绍:

Lovably eccentric musician Damon Gough (also known as Badly Drawn Boy) is best known for the ingenious debut "Hour of Bewilderbeast," and for the quirky, appealing soundtrack of the Hugh Grant film "About A Boy." Now he returns with a new album, twisting his fatigue into a pensive, heartbreakingly earnest album, "One Plus One Is One."

He starts off steady with his epic piano melodies in the title track, paired with heartfelt pleas of "Please give me some peace," followed by the folky splendor of "Easy Love" and "This is That New Song." He sticks to a darker sound in the steady piano of "Another Devil Dies" and "Logic of a Friend," or the vaguely eerie "Life Turned Upside-Down."

But rock and depth aside, there's a vaguely whimsical side to Damon Gough in this album, as evidenced by the weird choruses of "Year of the Rat" and "Holy Grail." If that children's choir doesn't put you off, nothing will. "Four-Leaf Clover" has a sort of fun, frolic-in-the-sunshine sound, but its upbeat quality is kind of forced.

Ah, Badly Drawn Boy. Is there anyone who doesn't love this guy? His earnest brand of folk-pop has a strangely soothing quality, and his brilliant musicianship and songs don't hurt either. He stretches in a few of the wrong directions in "One Plus One Is One," but those flaws don't detract much from the enjoyability of this album.

The lo-fi texture of "Bewilderbeast" is long gone, and the result is very polished, but not in a slick way. Gough's mellow vocals blend with his gentle percussion, folky guitar riffs, an occasional flute melody, and some subtle string arrangements. And of course -- the piano! Gough resculpts the piano into heavy, steady arrangements, or sparkling little melodies.

But Badly Drawn Boy himself is the best instrument. His mellow voice gives a sort of thoughtful air to even the lightest of songs. And the songs vary a lot: there's the vaguely angry "Another Devil Dies," where Gough announces "The hatred will tear us apart/Another devil will take out your heart." But he pairs it to the title track, with its fatigued pleas for solitude, or the quiet pondering of how "things didn't turn out/Quite the way that you dreamt about/But it still feels right."

"One Plus One Is One" is not quite Badly Drawn Boy's best, but taken alone it's still a heartfelt, gentle album. He just needs to tone down the choir and the sunniness, and everything ought to be fine.

以下转
本名Damon Gough的曼彻斯特大男孩Badly Drawn Boy于2000年发行的首张处男大碟《The Hour Of Bewilderness》被很多杂志选为当年的最佳专集之一,并且也随之声明远扬;随后于2002年为电影《abouta boy》做的原声大碟也是被评价为"几乎凌驾于电影之上"的成功之作,并且于同年发表了第二张正式的录音室专集《have you fed the fish?》。出道以外,Damon Gough给人的感觉永远都是内心充满矛盾的大男骇(2000年发《The Hour Of Bewilderness》的时候他30岁),同时也是一个擅于用音乐描述个表达内心矛盾的家伙,关于他的才华从来没人有过疑问,因为无疑的,Damon Gough的音乐从来都是自然的流露,几乎感觉不到其中存在着什么刻意的匠心。

现在Badly Drawn Boy又带着他的第三张录音室专集《One Plus One Is One》回来了,消失两年后重新又吸引了众人目光的新专集自然没有让人失望,除了延续以往专集中充满内心矛盾的动人旋律外,更多的变化在于不经意间流露出的大气与成熟。专集中更多的运用到了长笛,Wurlitzer Fun-Maker(一种很少人用到的特殊乐器),甚至有两首作品还特意请来了学校里的唱诗班帮忙,这样与众不同的配器悬浮在Damon Gough的歌声周围,层层包裹住这些美妙的旋律,让人无法抗拒。

"one plus one is one"诉说的是由衷的矛盾以及对失败的恐惧感,甚至对于自身的存在都产生了疑问,一直都设想去把所有的问题都解决,到最后才发现最大的问题存在于自己身上,于是Damon Gough一遍一遍的唱到"some peace Please give me some peace",而当钢琴和提琴同时停下只剩下小号微弱的呻吟时,这片刻的寂静又真的可能让问题解决吗?在恬静的"easy love"里,Damon Gough像个田园诗人般抚琴而吟,然而如果你以为此刻的Damon Gough像他手中的吉他一样温驯的话那你就错了,Damon Gough并不想诉说一个美好的爱情故事,也不想唱首美好的情歌给自己喜欢的姑娘,他只是想表达"Never had an easy love"样的绝情与对旧事的念念不忘而已。而最后那段长笛由优美最终演变为一发而不可收拾铿锵的吉他,而此刻的CD机早已经显示读到了第三轨上,没错,"summertime in wintertime"登场了。虽然我个人对"summertime in wintertime"这样的作品并不是特别喜欢,但是充满矛盾的Badly Drawn Boy式的歌词则永远是只可意会不可言传的,而躁动的旋律也更是为下一首异常感人的作品"this is that new song"做够了伏笔。在Damon Gough在位于Stockport的Moolah Rouge工作室完成这张唱片的最初的哪个版本之后不久,大概在Damon Gough34岁生日之前吧,Damon Gough的一位好友去世了,而据说这之后Damon Gough因为自身对一些问题的看法有了新的认识,于是决定重新修改这张唱片的一些作品,而我猜"this is that new song"便是向已故友人的问候,小提琴与箱琴恰倒好处的应和,开篇"And if I knew the answers,I would tell you now"与结尾处"And could you hold me now"相呼应,让人忍不住落下泪来。也许Damon Gough本身就是个悲情主义者,开篇动人的钢琴编织出同样催人泪下的"Another Devil Dies",随后长笛的出现则表现的愉快而豁达,而且也是本张唱片中我们所能感觉到的最快乐的Damon Gough。从之前那张《about a boy》的原声中我们能够看出Damon Gough对于纯音乐作品的驾御能力,所以出现像"the blossoms"这样的作品并不奇怪。圣歌般的"year of the rat"由于唱诗班的加入显的异常大气,歌词中出现的点题寓意"One plus one is one - together,One plus one is one - forever"使这首歌成为整张专集里最抢眼的作品。"four leaf clover"里的Badly Drawn Boy似乎跟以往不一样,有人说这样的改变几乎是颠覆性的,可是回过来再细听这首歌,Badly Drawn Boy的味道仍旧是浓的很。作为专集中最短小的作品,"fewer words"算的上一首成功的随性之作。Damon Gough是个特别容易被别人影响的人,这一点"logic of a friend"解释的再清楚不过,只是音乐上没有什么出彩的地方。"stockport"又是一首纯音乐作品,名字来自于Damon Gough制作这张唱片的工作室所在的城市的地名,不过不太喜欢里面钢琴的低音部分,感觉太过沉闷。一直都觉得Damon Gough拿着吉他的时候比弹钢琴的时候更自信一些,当然,我说的自信不是指的技术之类的,我是说比如像"life turned upside down"这样的作品,听起来特别自然,舒服。不知道是不是因为Damon Gough一年四季都喜欢戴着绒线帽,在这张唱片里他似乎特别喜欢在Summer和Winter上做文章,有过之前那首"summertime in wintertime"似乎还不过瘾,于是又在"take the glory"里继续了这个话题,只是比先前哪首作品更加浪漫一些。"holy grail"是个精彩的结尾,不但再次启用了在"year of the rat"表现抢眼的唱诗班以外,各种配器的交织使这个结尾显的特别繁荣而神圣。

看到这张唱片的名字的时候让我想起来了Badly Drawn Boy第一张专集的名字《the hour of bewilderbeast》,当然同时也想起了第二张中自问自答式的两首作品"I Was Wrong"" You Were Right",也许同样的矛盾始终存在,在生命中也许会存在着无数个"One Plus One Is One"似的疑问,也或者这样无聊的问题正是让生命继续下去的积极回答吧,谁又能像Badly Drawn Boy一样简单的概括出1+1的正解呢?
