Je connaissais (un peu) ce groupe depuis ses débuts fin des années 70, quel bonheur de découvrir d'autres morceaux comme "Closets & Bullets" ou "Celia"
L'émotion distillée par Martha DAVIS est restée intacte.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Checking In at The Five Star Motels 10 juin 2014
Par Tim Brough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
It is one of those stories that became all too prevalent in the 80's; decent band is forced to compromise for mega-success. Martha Davis and The Motels suddenly found themselves on the brink of stardom, and their record company didn't like the album they had prepared. An ultimatum was issued - go back into the studio with a producer of Capitol's choosing and his session hacks for a redo or no deal. The band swallowed hard (and nearly disintegrated). Val Garay (who had worked on the original sessions) delivered the keyboard dominated new sessions and "All Four One" was the result.

The final album treads a very fine line between arena rock and the edgy, arty new-wave the first two Motels albums were focused on. Only "Art Fails" and "Apocalypso" (the original album titles) sound like they came from that period. But the polished up Motels also brought lead singer Martha Davis into an even sharper focus, making the torchy "Only The Lonely" into the band's signature hit. The other two radio draws here; "Mission of Mercy" and "Take The L," pulled down radio play and established not only the Motels, but the crossover sound of safe New Wave. As such, "All Four One" is a classic album from the early 80's, helping to usher in a new sound.

There were also a pair of surprises here. Martha turned jazzy for the haunting "Change Your Mind," a major departure for The Motels' albums. The second was the inclusion of an obscure but controversial Carole King/Gerry Goffin song that Phil Spector produced for The Crystals, "He Hit Me and It Felt Like a Kiss." An ambiguously angry song about relationship abuse (or a cheeky ode to SM, take your pick), the original song was released as a single and subsequently blacklisted from radio. It makes its selection as a cover on "All Four One" all the odder, seeing as the band was fighting Capitol to record an album that would be commercially more viable than the "Apocalypso" sessions had yielded. As such, it was pretty much a backhand to the suits and helped The Motels maintain a semblance of edge.

Granted, the sudden success made the band all the more eager to stay safe (Little Robbers is almost a carbon copy of this and even cleaner). However, there are still plenty of reasons to like "All Four One." The remaster will drive audiophiles nuts as the compression really flattens and over compresses the percussion in particular, but I'm glad just to finally have this CD back in my library.

The Motels’ “All Four One”, released in 1982, was the album that finally brought the band its long sought commercial breakthrough. Led by the talented and charismatic front woman Martha Davis, The Motels were a presence on the L.A. music scene for a number of years and released several albums before scoring a platinum album with “All Four One”. The biggest and most well known hit on “All Four One” is of course the haunting “Only The Lonely”. From the opening notes to the stunning sax solo midway through the song, “Only The Lonely” is a chilling trip into a moody melancholy state of mind, where disappointment over a failed relationship leads to feelings of permanent loneliness. The song was the group’s first Top 10 hit and became a staple on MTV, album rock, Pop and adult contemporary stations. It has endured well 30 years later as it still gets plenty of airplay. “Take The L”, more of a rocker, was the album’s second single and became a moderate Pop hit and an album rock favorite. It also got a lot of play on the then burgeoning MTV, giving The Motels plenty of exposure that the band needed. “Forever Mine”, more of a Pop Rock synthesizer driven uptempo song, was the album’s third single and also became a sizable hit for the group, pushing the album into Platinum territory.

The remainder of the album is interesting and dabbles in various styles. “Mission of Mercy”, “Art Fails”, “Tragic Surf”, “Apocalypso” and “So LA” are progressive art rock at its most early 80’s kinky and angst ridden. Unlike similar bands of the time like Berlin and Quarterflash, Martha Davis does not over sing any of the tracks and her voice is an instrument through which she conveys various feelings and emotions. Check out the jazzy, bluesy “Change My Mind”, the most unusual song on “All Four One”. Or listen to the band’s rocky take on Carol King’s classic “He Hit Me(And It Felt Like A Kiss)”. Davis is not afraid to tackle different styles and she is not concerned about being commercial. Davis is also an accomplished musician and a solid songwriter, who wrote the majority of the songs on “All Four One”.

Big Thanks to Culture Factory for doing such a beautiful job of re-mastering this gem. This series is called a Vinyl Replica Collection but this is actually a great High Definition re-master. The sound here is amazing. And preserving the iconic album cover art front and back is simply genius. The over all look is sleek and has a feel of a vinyl record in mini form. Even the disc it itself looks like the original vinyl record. Thanks Culture Factory for a job well done.

I bought this because it was advertised to be a high-def disk, 96k, 24 bit. While it is 24 bit, it's also (a standard CD) 44.100k. Opened the songs with three different sound editors, and all three show the same thing.

I bought three disks of this type at the same time, produced by the same company (Culture Factory), and none of them are 96k.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All for a lot more than the last time I checked, and worth it! 11 septembre 2007

I just love it when a CD I bought a couple of years ago for straight retail is all of a sudden selling used for way more than I paid for it. And for good reason. This is one of the great iconic recordings of the 1980s. I really can't add much to what others have written, except that I can't think of any other CD in my whole collection where the bonus tracks just blew me away and made me realize how underappreciated this band was in its heyday.

I do hope this CD is reissued some day so anyone who wants it can afford it, but the used ones cost money for a reason.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Criminally Underrated Band Now In MLPS Format! 15 janvier 2013
Par Frederick Baptist - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I have to say that the French company that is coming up with these mini-lp replica sleeve designs (mlps) of older recordings is giving their more established competitors from Japan a right run for their money at least when it comes to mlps design and assembly. This release has been very well put together and ranks among the best mlps releases that I've ever seen. However, from a sound quality point of view the French do have some ways to go. This recording of what I believe to be The Motel's best overall album in terms of the consistently good quality of all the tracks has been remastered and compressed so for those anti-loudness people out there you are not going to appreciate the increased volume at the expense of a greater dynamic range; in fact the compression is overdone resulting in muddiness in all the tracks. If you are playing this in your car or on any other non-audiophile medium you are probably not going to notice this too much though and so audiophiles beware!

Otherwise, this is great punk rock ala The Go-Gos, Billy Idol, Blondie of the early 80s era. I particularly like this album because one of my all-time favourite tracks "Only the Lonely" is here and yet the rest of the tracks are by no means even close to resembling filler being also of consistently high songwriting quality; for me the over-compression is a shame though as the tracks are not allowed to breathe making me wonder how much better these tracks would sound with an expanded dynamic range.

So here in this unique mlps release of their best album we have a mixed bag because while the mlps itself is well designed and there is no faulting the quality of the songs the sound quality with muddiness on too many tracks due to over-compression in order to increase the volume and hence reduce the dynamic range while acceptable to most ears will certainly not please the audiophiles among us. However if sound quality isn't too important to you then this is a great release to add to your sonic library collection.

(Mostly) recommended!
