depuis l’automne

Am dat play şi vraja o început.  Am stat şi am ascultat acordurile unul după celălalt. Un vers, al doilea….

Si on avait besoin d’une cinquieme saison al canadienilor de la Harmonium e unul din albumele alea la care îmi amintesc prima audiţie şi fascinaţia faţă de fiecare piesă ce se auzea din boxe.  E genul de album care, deşi îl iubesc, îl ascult mai rar. Dar absolut de fiecare dată când dau play am aceeaşi senzaţie deosebită de la prima ascultare –  încep primele acorduri; am 17 ani şi piele de găină.

Plouă de câteva zile iar playlistu mi-i plin de oldies and goldies. De albume preferate care îmi dau o stare de bine. Şă fie cald şi bine pe dinăuntru dacă picioarele mi-s de gheaţă.

Une chanson pour ici
Pour nous dire qu’on a refroidi
Une chanson en souvenir
Du temps qu’on voulait détruire
Un accord qui nous donne
Ce qu’on attend de l’automne
Quand y’a pus rien personne

(Harmonium Depuis l’automne)

    evident, si mie imi place foarte mult😛

    les quebecois au avut (si inca mai au) o scena experimentala foarte misto, din cate stiu.

    Dar pe mine?🙂

    Excelent album!

    Mie mi s-a parut ca albumul are un sound destul de actual (1990+). Mare mi-a fost surpriza sa descopar ca a fost lansat in anii 70.

    Încerc să îmi aduc aminte dacă îl am de la tine sau de la Pi. Dar partea aia e blanc total.
    Şi eu mă aşteptam să fie mai actual. E uimitor ce bine se descurcau unii prin ’70🙂

    Eu il am de la tine, iar cand am vrut sa-l dau si lu’ pi, il stia deja. Asadar…… misterul dispare

    de azi🙂

    I should have started with their debut album. But I have been listening to this album on and off for a year so I am excused.

    It is said that Antonio Vivaldi’s socalled masterpiece The Four Seasons is a very beautiful piece of music. It has influenced the rock and pop world and spawned some copies. I am not sure if Harmonium has copied The Four Seasons. In any case; Harmonium has added one xtra season. The fifth season is also the longest one here, clocking in at over seventeen minutes. I am not sure about the lyrics here, French not being my strongest side. But I am sure the lyrics is as beautiful as the music.

    The music is a blend of folk rock, fusion jazz and symphonic prog. The use of instruments are on the minimalist side. The instruments are understated rather than bombastic. The vocals plays an important role. The jazz pieces here are truly stunning. The second song Dixie has a dixieland theme. That is the most lively, bouncy song on this album. The rest of the album follows a very understated pattern, based on silent contemplation rather than preaching (overstated keyboards). That makes this music fascinating, but not easy to break down. My only gripe is that this album lacks the dot over the i. In other words; a killer track which gives the album a real identity. But on the other hand, I doubt you will find any better marriage of folk rock and symphonic prog on this planet.

    I am tempted to give five points. But I have a policy not to give any more five pointers. Oh, what the heck. This is a truly excellent and essential album everyone should have in their collection. Everyone. The artwork also being a good reason for that. Nevermind the pop up which will now greet me with the warning from the PA staff. Yes, I do understand the rules. This album is Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music. It is also a sure candidate for the top ten of all albums.

    5 stars (deserved)

    Şi eu m-am chinuit puţin cu franceza, dar am scos-o la capăt. Versurile mi se par excelente. Şi coperta la fel🙂
    Îi dau dreptate omului, şi mie mi se pare Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
