3.0 étoiles sur 5 Metal Machine Merritt 5 mars 2012
Par Greg Cleary - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Stephin Merritt is so talented that he has to create challenges for himself in order to keep things interesting. When he challenged himself to write 69 love songs, the resulting album was a spectacular success. He followed that up by recording an entire album of songs that began with the letter "I." Arguably, it was another success, albeit on much more modest terms. For "Distortion," he created a challenge of a different kind. This time, the unifying idea was not about the songs themselves, but rather, the recording process. Every track on the album is bathed in reverb, feedback, and distortion.

The idea is not as weird as it sounds. In a way, it is a throwback to the early days of the Magnetic Fields. The first two albums and the "House of Tomorrow" EP also featured a layered electronic sound. Traces of this sound could still be found in "69 Love Songs"--think of "I Don't Want to Get Over You" or "I'm Sorry I Love You." The name of the band even seems to hint at this approach to recording.

On "Distortion," however, the approach is taken to an extreme, and the results are sometimes hard to endure. It doesn't help that the songwriting is not as strong as it is on most Magnetic Fields albums. Half of the songs are sung by Stephin Merritt and the other half by Shirley Simms, and for whatever reason, the Shirley songs are all better than the Stephin songs. A few of the Stephin songs are almost torturous to listen to, particularly "Mr. Mistletoe" and "Zombie Boy," as his deep voice mingles unappealingly with the murky production.

Among the Shirley songs, though, there are a few gems. "The Nun's Litany" is ostensibly just a long list of sexual perversions in which the song's heroine wishes to indulge, and yet it somehow avoids being crass and is actually kind of touching, as she longs to find some kind--ANY kind--of sexual identity. "California Girls" and "Xavier Says" are also supremely catchy and full of bitter humor. The final song, "Courtesans," has a classic melody that any folk songwriter would be proud to write. In this setting, however, it loses some of its impact, in spite of yet another crisp vocal performance by Shirley Simms. Her voice has a way of cutting through all of this sonic weirdness. Maybe this is why Merritt had a female singer handle all of the vocals on the first two Magnetic Fields albums.

Even when this album succeeds, however, it succeeds in spite of the sound, rather than because of it. Which leads to the question: What was the point of all this noisy production anyway? One thing that can be said for it--although it's not exactly a compliment--is that it demands the total attention of the listener. It doesn't work as background music or as an accompaniment to other activities. I listened to it while driving one time and ended up with a slight headache. I don't mind being challenged by music at times, but listening to "Distortion" is a little bit too much like work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Lo-Fi Indie Pop Record 13 février 2008
Par Mark Abrahamsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I find it suprising that certain people think so negitively of such a wonderful record. I don't think it much different than their indie-electronic style, the only thing that's different is the instruments. The Magnetic Fields have always strived to make great indie pop music, and they've always had a sweet tooth for slight experimentation. Their beautiful melodies and wity lyrical style are no different and no less memborable than it was before before. The guitar style reminds me of something between My Bloody Valentine and Beat Happening, and I find it very well done within that context. I especially love the 60's pop vibe that pervades the record. I understand that not everyone likes the kind of distortion employed by bands like My Bloody Valentine and Beat Happening, but I think it fits beautifully for The Magnetic Fields. Even if it doesn't warm up to your ears at first listen, it will indeed grow on you. So, listen to it for yourself before you read any negitive reviews. Just give it a chance to warm up to you, and you might just thank yourself for it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Love It!! 18 janvier 2008
Par E. C Goodstein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I don't disagree with the other reviews. I'll add though that I think the album is beautifully realized,
if certainly a departure in 'tone' and sound for MF. I thought 'I' (despite some fine moments) was at times too precious and pessimistic without sufficient thematic or sound variation, or enough leavening humor and irony. I think 'Distortion' though has great balance. I hope long term fans can get beyond-- or even embrace-- the loud sound feedback effects and weigh the album on its own merits. It does evoke Jesus and Mary Chain, but isn't slavishly imitative either. The clever/complex way it's put together and holds together even recalls for me Nilsson's best '60's work like "Nilsson Sings Newman," if not of course sounding the same. Some of lyrics (not unusual for Merritt of course) evoke as much Sondheim or Brecht/Weill as contemporary power pop. This album, like all his best stuff I think, is as much about the form of pop music as the content: he's one of the very best at deconstructing and reconstructing those forms. Early yet-- but I think this may rank just below '69 Love Songs' in my estimation, which means it's great!! I'm loving this more with each listen.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not my cup of tea....... 12 février 2008
Par Jimmy DeLoche - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I really fell in love with this band with "i", then bought the rest backward and even saw them live on their last tour. The things I love about them is not present on this release;quirky,clever arrangements & lyrics. While the lyrics are there, they are lost in all the noise. This one is close to "The House of Tomorrow", which is my least favorite of the older releases.

I like noise like My Bloody Valentine, Dead C, ect. Just didn't want it here. I love steak and cheescake, just not mixed together.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Just okay 11 mars 2008

I really like most Magnetic Fields releases. My favorite is Holiday. To tell you the truth the distortion really does not add anything! Overall it is a mediocre record.
