Deja 5 ans sans nouvelle de Al Stewart.Ce nouveau disque enchante:harmonies simples,presque evidentes et surtout un son magistral.Nous sommes dans la veine des deux albums precedents avec la presence magique de Lauwrence Juber dont le toucher evoque frequemment le grand Tim Renwick .Fini les expériences elctro techno qui ont nuit un temps a Al ..rien que du pur, des guitares comme on en reve.

Ce disque n'est pour moi que du bonheur. Un cd est souvent un ensemble de quelques "Tubes" accompagnés de morceaux qui sont de moindre qualité pour faire les dix ou douzes plages habituelles. Ici toutes les compositions d'Al Stewart sont magnifiques avec des mélodies imparables , de beaux textes et l'accompagnement sublime du grand guitariste qu'est Laurence Juber.
C'est un grand CD.

Je ne peux qu'abonder dans le sens des commentateurs précédents, du bonheur, rien que du bonheur. Je suis fan de ce Monsieur depuis le début des années 70, avant même le fameux Year of the cat, et je me demande si ce Beach Full of Shells n'est pas son meilleur album, après Modern Times peut-être ?

HASH(0x9d7d2d68) étoiles sur 5 A crowning jewel of a great career 23 juin 2005
Par Benjamin Henwood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I've been a fan of Al Stewart since I heard "Carol" on the radio in 1973 or 1974 or so, and have become very familiar with his work since then. After all these years, I didn't think that I could be surprised by anything he did because I already had such high expectations, but frankly this new recording has left me amazed. From the very start of the opening cut, his creativity shines in lyrics, tone, instrumentation, and variety. His voice is in the best form in many years. Al seems to have found something from within that is both inspiring and fresh, perhaps a reconnection with his own folk rock roots, that has elevated his music in many ways. Laurence Juber, the acclaimed guitarist and producer, did a superb job bringing this great collection of songs to life. The entire recording is a joy to play, and I think over time it will become viewed by many as Al's finest. I can't help but be reminded of Roy Orbison who had a huge surge in creativity later in his career.

This CD comes with a very attractive lyric and photo booklet.

Addendum: it's been about six years since I wrote this review; this recording has staying power -- it's one of my favorite AS recordings of all time. I'd put it up there with 'Between the Wars' and 'Year of the Cat.'

HASH(0x9d7d91b0) étoiles sur 5 You MUST have this album! 15 juillet 2005
Par Jodi Oli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Lovely, lyrical songs and music...definitely one of Al's best.

There are no songs to dislike on this album, and many to love. Right now I am humming "Katharine of Oregon", while my son is singing "Rain Barrel" (which I seem to recall as a real historical event, but cannot remember the details).

"Mr. Lear" is also a favorite. My kids and I loved Edward Lear's works, and Stewart deftly captures the wistful playfulness of his works.

The song which contains the title words, "Somewhere in England, 1915", is hauntingly beautiful; it brought tears to my eyes.

But, as I said -- they are all good.

HASH(0x9d7d9204) étoiles sur 5 A Welcome Return 15 août 2005
Par Kurt Harding - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Quite a few years have passed since Al Stewart's last release so A Beach Full Of Shells marks a welcome and refreshing return to the public ear.
I have been a fan of Stewart's ever since the lyrical wizardry of Past, Present and Future delighted my senses nearly forty years ago. And its all still here: Stewart's rich and unmistakeable voice, the unparalleled scope and depth of his lyrics, and his musical prowess.
The problem (some may say its his delight) with Stewart though is that he sometimes really seems to plumb the depths of the past in order to come up with what he feels is a suitable subject for a song. The Immelman Turn is just such a song. Barnstorming is a very obscure topic and in the course of the song Stewart himself seems at a loss to find much of anything to say about it. But that song and the silly Class of '58 aside, Stewart has turned out his best album since The Last Days of the Century.
My favorites are the whimsical Mr Lear, the tongue-in-cheek take on some of the absurdities of diplomacy in Royal Courtship, the mysterious Rain Barrel, the cozy Katherine of Oregon, the phantasmic Out In The Snow, the dreamy My Egyptian Couch, the rocking Gina In The King's Road, and the imaginitive story of a suicide in Anniversary.
Overall, A Beach Full Of Shells is a fine album that should please even the most discriminating of Stewart's fans.

HASH(0x9d7d92d0) étoiles sur 5 Nostalgic! Magical! Mesmerizing! 16 janvier 2006
Par Dennis Petticoffer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is one of those albums that makes you glad to be alive. Al Stewart is in fine form on "A Beach Full of Shells," his finest album since the seventies. Here, he returns to his strength: writing tunes referencing historical events, engaging in witty wordplay, and delivering them with his familiar, soothing patter.

What makes this album so compelling is Al's fervid imagination. Each song (every one a winner) is cinematic in scope, transporting the listener through time and space in two to four minute increments. The album opens, appropriately, with the tale of an acrobatic flyer, soaring above the adoring crowds, reveling in his passion for danger even as he takes a fatal turn. As his character nosedives, Al soars to even greater heights with a delightful tribute to Edward Lear, perfectly capturing Lear's world of whimsicality.

"Somewhere in England 1915," tells of the tragicomic demise of British poet, Rupert Brooke, who died of a mosquito bite in Greece during World War I. I guarantee, that's a topic no other musician has ever attempted, or probably will attempt ever again! Al's portrait of Edwardian England, "My Egyptian Couch," is so vivid that the listener actually feels like he's on a steam ship sailing through the Suez Canal. At other times, we journey to bohemian London of the 60's, down Boston's famed Beacon Street, adrift on a lonely ice floe, hiding from pursuers in a rain barrel, and in a museum where the Mona Lisa and all her Renaissance girlfriends come to life in an empty museum.

I love the way Al segues from the Beatlesque ending of "Class of '58" to the "Strawberry Fields" mellotron of the next cut, "Out in the Snow," an amazing piece of surreality. The obvious tip of the hat to John Lennon in "The Anniversary" is enthralling and chilling at the same time. Meanwhile, the intriguing wordplay of "Royal Courtship" and "Katherine of Oregon" is nothing short of stunning. Who else would deign to throw words like "plenipoteniary" or "amanuensis" in a song--or rhyme "paper-wrapped luncheon" with "ancient curmudgeon?" That kind of verbal derring-do leaves me giddy.

Traversing this "Beach Full of Shells" is a nostalgic, magical experience no one should miss.

HASH(0x9d7d9798) étoiles sur 5 Another solid, intelligent effort from Al 5 août 2005
Par Music Fan from St. Louis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Time once again for another CD from the master of "historical rock" himself, Al Stewart. He always takes years between his releases of new songs (his last release was 2000's "Down in the Cellar"), but the wait is generally worth it. This one is no exception to that rule.

The album reminds me somewhat stylistically of "Down in the Cellar" although it seems to have a bit more "up" feel to it -- not quite so populated with heavier songs as was that 2000 release.

Which is not to say it doesn't have its share of epic-quality songs (most notably, the just-a-tad-under 7 minute "Somewhere in England 1915," one of the versus of which contributes the CD's title). But from its opening song -- "The Immelman Turn" -- on through "Katherine of Oregon" and "Gina in the Kings Road," the overall feel of the album seems to be more upbeat than recent efforts. "Class of '58" is an out-and-out kick-up-your-shoes rocker, despite its somewhat jazzy opening verse.

As usual, the musicianship is in fine evidence throughout. Al himself is a pretty good guitarist, and as has been the case on Al's most recent CDs, Laurence Juber is along both to produce the overall effort and contribute his usual high standard of guitar skills.

I rate this CD about the same as "Down in the Cellar" -- 4 out of the possible 5 stars. Not as good as acoustic "Life Between the Wars" (I'd give that one 6 or 7 stars if I could) or the unplugged-style "Rhymes in Rooms" (another 6-7 star release), but still better than 95% of most other rock and pop being released these days.

Will this CD regain for Al the kind of mainstream popularity he enjoyed in the late 70s due to "Year of the Cat" and "Time Passaes"? No, but then I doubt Mr. Stewart is aiming for that kind of popularity again anyway. I've already read past interviews with him where he's stated he'd just as soon avoid that (he wants to be able to go grocery shopping or out to dinner and not be interrupted constantly), so instead he takes his time to craft his songs to his satisfaction (think about it -- no label would let a mainstream music star go 5 years between releases). Al's steady fans, of which I am one, are the beneficiaries. Good music (his chord changes and melodies always rise above the usual pop music tricks), well-turned lyrics (whether dealing with epic-style topics, or simply fun word twisters), excellent musicianship... that's what we expect from Al, and that's what we get.
