Descriptions du produit

The Waterboys, c'est bien sûr Mike Scott. Louvoyant entre folk et rock, cet Irlandais mène son groupe depuis 1983 ; presque trois décennies d'activité pendant lesquelles la formation a accédé au statut de groupe culte, avec des tubes comme 'The Whole Of The Moon', 'Don't Bang The Drum', 'A Girl Called Johnny'... L'album « Fisherman's Blues » (1988) est souvent considéré comme le chef d'oeuvre du groupe, et trône dans le haut du classement des meilleurs albums pop des années quatre-vingt, entre « The Joshua Tree » (U2) ou « Rum, Sodomy and The Lash » (The Pogues). Multi-instrumentiste (guitare, piano), Mike Scott est un féru de littérature (il adopte déjà un poème de Yeats sur Fisherman's Blues), de folklore celte et gaélique, fan de van Morrison. Ce nouvel album des Waterboys consacre la rencontre de l'univers musical de Mike Scott et de la poésie de W.B. Yeats, l'un des fils prodige de l'Irlande. « J'ai grandi dans une maison remplie de livres, la littérature et le langage sont très importants pour moi. J'ai toujours eu plus de facilité à écrire la musique plutôt que les paroles, et mettre les mots de Yeats en chanson est un énorme privilège et un grand plaisir. » Belles mélodies, retenue toute british, arrangements ciselés, influences celtiques, spiritualité, élans romantiques, cet album de popfolk adulte est un vibrant hommage d'un passionné de musique et de mots à l'une des plus grandes figures littéraires britanniques.

Format: CD
Vous faites partie de ceux qui aiment particulièrement les premiers albums des Waterboys et notamment ceux allant du premier album éponyme jusqu'à "Room To Roam" ? Vous faites partie de ceux qui pensent que Mike Scott n'était plus aussi inspiré, mélodiquement parlant, depuis ? Vous préfériez quand le piao et l'orgue et d'autres instruments moins rock étaient plus présents ? Alors cet album devrait vous ravir.
Déjà "Universal Hall" me semblait un bien bel effort mais "Book of Lightning" revenait à un rock au son un peu sale (pas au point de "Rock in a Weary Land", heureusement) et pas toujours très inspiré sur le plan mélodique. An appointment with Mr. Yeats reprend, du moins partiellement, le vrai style des Waterboys, celui qui les avait rendus reconnaissables parmi les autres groupes dans ces années 80 aseptisées et plastifiées. Ce n'est pas une question de vivre dans le passé. C'est une question de style, de son et de musique.
"An Evening with Mr. Yeats" que Scott a déjà développé en concert cette année me semblait un concept très intéressant, surtout que le musicien avait fait une adaptation magnifique d'un de ses fameux poèmes (The Stolen Child) sur "Fisherman Blues". Voici le résultat en studio, avec un nouvel accompagnateur aux claviers, omniprésent et c'est une excellente idée. A mon humble avis, cet album est le meilleur qu'ait sorti Mike Scott depuis "Room To Roam". On y retrouve tout un éventail de genres, folk rock, musique passéiste, orchestrale, de la vraie pop, pas de la daube pour les radios actuelles.

HASH(0x94bcda44) étoiles sur 5 work of true genius 4 octobre 2011
Par Edward A. Arnold - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you get one CD this decade, make sure it is this one. This is a timeless masterpiece, a singularly brilliant collaboration between two geniuses. Mike Scott has done the unthinkable, the impossible, in taking a range of Yeats' words and bringing them to life with music that, in each instance, works perfectly, as if it could not be otherwise. Yet he has not simply put the words to music but rather in some cases reworked poems completely: rearranging, cutting, splicing, combining - whatever necessary to make the collaboration a full partnership. Song by song:

1. Hosting of the Shee: the album could not open better than with the thunderous, eerie rush of the Sidhe, with Scott shouting "empty your heart of its mortal dream." The 'orc-drums' create the perfect entry into the world where the mythic and utterly human entwine.

2. Song of Wandering Aengus: again, the tone is perfect, with the vocals accenting the delicate scene unfolding, with moth-like stars flickering out and a glimmering girl fading into brightening air. Can anyone imagine anyone but Mike Scott thinking that he could put to music: "I will pluck til time and times are done/the silver apples of the moon, the golden apples of the sun"? The music again could not be more suitable, especially the flute which carries us to song three.

3. News for the Delphic Oracle: this is stunning in a different way, not a beautiful lyric like Aengus, but a tripartite piece, with music and vocal delivery each suited ideally to the odd scenes Yeats portrays. This is a truly brilliant piece, for it doesn't lend itself as easily to music as, say, Aengus, and that is where we must stand in awe of these talents.

4. A Full Moon in March: no idea what it means, though live Scott referred to it as a fractured fairy tale. The music is again brilliant, a real rocker as if from the Dream Harder period.

5. Sweet Dancer: Here two poems are combined, with Steve Wickham's violin providing the backbone. It is the most simply listenable song, perhaps, and one to which you'll end up singing along.

6. White Birds: Scott really mashes up this poem, switching words and verses, adding others from a Yeats play, and generally infuriating anyone wishing simply to read along from Yeats' Collected Poems. Instead, with another perfect rock sound, he elevates the song far above the poem itself, bringing a pathos - especially with the bridge -that the words on the page simply do not. This is an utter triumph.

7. The Lake Isle of Innisfree: yes, the classic poem is turned into a blues song, complete with fuzz fiddle. This is another that could, but should not, infuriate purists, for this shows just how devoted Scott is to his own vision of this material. If this is heresy, then surely Yeats the modernist was himself a heretic. In any case, this is the halfway point, and we have moved from the mythic Irish and Greek to purely human emotion.

8. Mad as the Mist and Snow: this one took a few listens to grow on me, as did Innisfree, but it is pitch perfect with the fuzz fiddle bringing the madness to life amid the whirling dervish vocal performance.

9. Before the World Was Made: a spare duet with Scott and Katie Kim and little instrumental accompaniment, which works to great effect.

10. September 1913: Another rocker with driving piano and vocal performance perfectly suited to the poem. When he shouts Romantic Ireland's dead and gone, Scott could well be telling critics that he is rejecting a priori any loyalty to a traditional Irish sound, such as in The Stolen Child from Fisherman's Blues.

11. An Irish Airman Foresees His Death: another one we all learned in our poetry anthologies in school, this one is another spare arrangement that lets the simplicity of the lyric take precedent, and as such is done perfectly. This one too shows just how respectfully Scott approaches each poem, not imposing a uniform format to the musical form or vocal delivery.

12. Politics: twenty years after Irish Airman, in the aftermath of WWI, Yeats and the world are on the brink of another world war, and he dismisses the sound and fury of politics, somewhat like in September 1913. In some sense, this turns the album away from the turmoil of human activity toward contemplation, like another poem published contemporaneously, Lapis Lazuli.

13. Let the Earth Bear Witness: Here Scott succeeds masterfully in bringing two separate pieces together, two verses from different plays that come together perfectly. He 'wrote' this in the wake of the Iranian democratic uprisings but has said that it certainly could reflect the indomitable spirit of 'freedom fighters' anywhere.

14. The Faery's Last Song: If you have read Yeats' first published poem, The Island of Statues, then you know that these two verses are the lyrical highlight. That Scott had read it, plucked out these silver and golden apples, and set them to such gorgeous music is worth the price of the CD itself. We have left the contemplation of abstract death in the previous two songs and now contemplate our own: soon shall our wings be stilled/and our laughter over and done/so let us dance on the waves/let us dance in the sun. We've returned to the entwined world of myth and human experience, and the final minutes are a haunting voice fading into the wind.

Don't miss this. If you were expecting The Stolen Child, you'll be momentarily disappointed, for it is closer to Love and Death from Dream Harder. But this album grows on you with each listen, and each song becomes a gem in its own right. It won't get the notice it deserves, certainly not in the US, but get copies into the hands of anyone with a love of literature, for they shouldn't miss this event.

HASH(0x94c7221c) étoiles sur 5 What Music is Meant to Be 8 octobre 2011
Par McJic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Waterboys leader Mike Scott has written, played on and produced a work of pure genius and beauty based on the poems of W.B. Yeats. This is what music is meant to be. In one brilliant and bold work of art The Waterboys have produced music that trumps 99% of music heard on the radio.

For those of you who aren't familiar with The Waterboys and Mike Scott, you owe it to yourself to give their music a listen. Put An Appointment with Mr Yeats, Bring `Em All In, Fishermans' Blues, and Best of the Waterboys on your "Buy it Now" list.

HASH(0x94bda8c4) étoiles sur 5 Brilliant! 9 février 2012
Par applewood - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had long ago given up on the Waterboys (pretty much after Fisherman's Blues, although Room to Roam had some great moments), and then to discover this new recording, this new union of music and poetry! Ah, delightful!

So far it's a consensus here among reviewers, this is a brilliant and satisfying work. My two cents is just to concur, right from the first notes you can tell you're in for something special; a dramatic, unapologetic and ennobling reading of W.B. Yeats, all to a lush musical accompaniment (a great cross between prog-rock and Irish folk/rock - with especially nice vocal help from Katie Kim). It captivates, and carries one away to that distant, yet ever so near, realm the great Irish poet so evocatively spoke of and from. I can't think of a better performer to do this than Mike Scott.

(the powerful)
"Bolt and bar the shutters for the foul winds blow
Our minds are at their best this night and I seem to know
that everything outside us is
Mad as the mist and snow
that everything outside us is
Mad as the mist and snow"

(the sublime)
"If I make the lashes dark
and the eyes more bright
and the lips more scarlet
or ask if all be right
from mirror after mirror
no vanity's displayed:
I'm looking for the face I had
before the world was made
Yes I'm looking for the face I had
before the world was made"

(and the poignant)
"Man has the fields of heaven
but soulless a faery dies
as a leaf that is old and withered and cold
when the winter winds arise
Soon shall our wings be stilled
and our laughter over and done
So let us dance on the waves
Let us dance in the sun"

HASH(0x94c7e354) étoiles sur 5 Mike Scott rocks on Yeats. 9 janvier 2012
Par Dave the Droog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Mike Scott and Steve Wickham have nailed another one. A twenty year in the making project, showcases the fine craftsmanship of fully matured world class artists. Mature and sophisticated melodies take W.B. Yeats' work to dizzying new heights. Since receiving it I've pretty much worn the CD out (if that's possible). For Mike Scott / Waterboy's fans, this one is a MUST HAVE.

HASH(0x94e62120) étoiles sur 5 Simply Splendid ! 19 juillet 2012
Par Blue Dolphin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
As someone who only recently rediscovered Mike Scott's enormous back catalogue (both as a solo artist and The Waterboys' heart and soul), I consider this latest release to represent his absolute best work, as great as anything he has so far created. Given his penchant for exploring diverse musical styles and his successful refusal to be shoe-horned into any particular genre, fans of Mike Scott's music are roughly divided between those who only love the songs of this or that period, and the much smaller group of those who simply embrace everything he does. For myself, I enjoy about 90% of his output, and the same can be said for this album.

My favourites so far include "The Hosting of the Shee", "Mad as the Mist and Snow", "White Birds", "Politics", and the incredibly poignant "The Faery's Last Song". The treatment of "The Lake Island of Innisfree" is pure genius, as this over-exposed Yeats classic presented a host of spiked challenges, all brilliantly overcome by the robust bluesy approach. Another stand-out is "Before the World Was Made", a gorgeous duet with Katie Kim, one of the most interesting female voices I've heard recently. In fact, there isn't a weak track on the whole album and I suspect people's favourites will vary greatly. One I don't care for is "A Full Moon in March", but that is because I dislike the words.

What is beyond discussion is the superb quality of this music, a welcome change from today's frankly depressing standards. A special mention for the other superb musicians involved, especially the mercurial Steve Wickham whose fiddle-work reaches new heights in some truly inspired solos. I was pleased to see a fair amount of media interest for this potentially "difficult" release and I have yet to read a less-than-positive professional review. For those considering a purchase, the Waterboys Soundcloud has three tracks available to preview. Highly recommended.
