Foo Fighters – Best Of You

Foo Fighters - In Your Honor

经过了三年的等待之后,著名的 Foo Fighters 乐队终于发行了他们组建以来的第五张专辑《In Your Honor》,由于之前的《One by One》在评论界和商业上取得的双重成功,这张高期待值的专辑在发行首周即取得了31万1千张的高销量,雄踞 Billboard 200 排行榜亚军宝座,成为乐队组建十年来排名最高的专辑。

这张双CD专辑展示了 Foo Fighters 乐队最极端的两种风格,第一张碟中的十首单曲延续了 Foo Fighters 乐队一贯的轰鸣的摇滚乐风格,猛烈的吉他演奏,怒吼般的演唱,强烈的鼓点和硬摇滚旋律,是最典型 Foo Fighters 乐队;而在第二张碟中则展现了一个全新的不插电专辑,完全的原声乐器演奏,轻柔到如同乡村民谣般的演唱,优美而舒缓的旋律,完全展现了柔版的 Foo Fighters。令人难以置信的是他们在这两个方面竟然都做得如此出色,在CD1里可以迅速得在摇滚乐的音响环绕中宣泄自己的激情,在CD2里则让人沉浸于 Foo Fighters 营造的轻柔环境中。

据说这张专辑的标题是针对失败了的美国总统候选人 John Kerry 的,不过看起来这张专辑似乎与政治关系不大。Dave Grohl 用这张专辑营造了两个截然不同的假象,他保证了自己富有爆发力的演唱以及坚决的摇滚旋律在CD1,并且引领乐队开启了民谣风格的不插电在CD2,两方面都做得相当不错,也许这意味着成军十年之后,Dave Grohl 将带领 Foo Fighters 乐队去探索一个新的音乐突破点,这张专辑将成为他们道路中的值得纪念的作品之一,一张经典的专辑,两张经典的CD。

Foo Fighters – Best Of You
In Your Honor

I’ve got another confession to make
I’m your fool
Everyone’s got their chains to break
Holdin’ you
Were you born to resist or be abused?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Are you gone and onto someone new?
I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didn’t have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can’t choose
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…
Oh…Oh…Oh…Oh…
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You die to heal
The hope that starts
The broken hearts
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
I’ve got another confession my friend
I’m no fool
I’m getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new
Were you born to resist or be abused?
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…

    买过一张他们的CD,主要是冲着NIRVANA的前成员组成的乐队才买的,听过两遍,但是已经对他们的音乐没有什么映象了
