THE MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC CO

Amazon.fr

Souvent placé à la droite de Will Oldham (Palace, Bonnie Prince Billy) sur le podium discret de l'alternative country américaine, Jason Molina sera plus facilement comparé à Neil Young ou Bob Dylan avec ce septième opus de Songs: Ohia. Un album aux épaules larges qui risque d'en surprendre plus d'un. Fait notable, Magnolia Electric Co. ressemble déjà plus à une œuvre collective, produite en compagnie d'un groupe de scène, qu'au résultat de la seule personnalité de Molina, plus ou moins entouré selon les cas. Ensuite, le son millésimé 70's, enregistré en prise directe par le puriste Steve Albini, associé à des compositions plus musclées, dégage une puissance nouvelle. Heureusement la "virilité" acquise par le groupe ne verse pas dans le gros rock chromé. Mis à part un "The Old Black Hen" un peu trop folklorique (dont les responsabilités vocales ont été déléguées), l'écriture enfiévrée de Molina fait merveille et coule un nouvel alliage de férocité et d'humilité. Finalement, ses nouveaux attributs donnent à Songs: Ohia une contenance épique qui jaillit magnifiquement sur les morceaux de bravoure que sont "Farewell Transmission", "I've Been Riding With the Ghost" ou "Almost Was Good Enough". Fermement enraciné dans le terreau social, Magnolia Electric Co. est un album "rustique" et imposant. --Fabrice Privé

Que dire de plus sinon que cet album est un véritable petit bijou ? A la première écoute, on est persuadé d'entendre un inédit de Neil Young des années 70, comme si il s'était enfin décidé à sortir "On the Beach" en CD. Nettement plus électrique que les opus précédents, cet album est un exemple parfait de ce que peut être de la bonne musique américaine. Délaissant les complaintes un peu neurasténiques du style Palace et Smog, cet album devrait apporter un succès plus que mérité à Jason Molina.

d'accord avec l'autre commentaire. Un album parfait qui marque une nouvelle orientation. Le groupe deviendra Magnolia Electric Co. car justement il s'électrise et prend un côté big band rock et folk. Le son est pur, aux confluents de tout cet esprit américain des grands espaces, enfant de Neil Young et de biens d'autres, et maintenant pères de nombreux successeurs, car ils n'en sont pas à leur coup d'essai! Ecoutez toute la discographie d'urgence, les albums solos de Jason Molina (c'est lui qui compose tout) et les artistes du label Secretly Canadian!

HASH(0x957afd50) étoiles sur 5 Post Script to Songs: Ohia's "MEC" review 26 juillet 2003
Par El Roi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY THIS ALBUM!! PAY THE EXTRA MONEY AND GET THE JAPANESE IMPORT. Why you ask? Because it has a bonus track titled "The Big Game Is Every Night." As with the other eight tracks that are on the US release, it is incredible. ALSO FIND AND PURCHASE THE VINYL. Why again you ask? Because the vinyl or lp version includes a bonus CD of Jason Molina's acoustic versions of the the of the entire album, even the bonus track. Even if you don't have a turn table, the fourteen or so bucks you spend on it will be worth the nine track CD you get. After roughly two months of continuous listening, I firmly believe that this is a landmark album in music. If there was any justice in today's world of musical mediocrity, this artist and album would without a doubt be the recipient's of numerous Grammy's.

I am still loving this album. Jason Molina is an unacknowledged talent that deserves to be recognized.

HASH(0x957afda4) étoiles sur 5 Long Dark Blues... 10 avril 2003
Par Paul D. Moyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
...not long enough. That's my only complaint about this masterpiece; it seems to go by too quickly, too quickly for the long spring twilight drive through the desert which it should accompany. There are so many voice-prints in the music singing through Jason Molina and his conspirators on this record: Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Alex Chilton, Don Williams, Hank Williams, old REM, Dylan, Olson-era Jayhawks, Enrico Morricone. But to say it sounds quite LIKE any of these people would be a disservice. It is much more than the sum of these suggestions. It's a very distinct critter from the other work of Songs: Ohia, but in an organic, not jarring way. It rocks much harder but still haunts you as much much as anything on "Ghost Tropic." It's impeccably sequenced. You keep waiting for the filler song; the song that breaks the mood, and the album is over before you've heard it. While the record is short the songs are niiice and loooong. They linger with you, not letting you go, like a cute and crazy drunk chick at a VFW hall wedding dance in Riverton, Wyoming. She might even be the bride, and you're thinking about taking her home as she rasps along with Ferlin Husky "...wings of a snow white dove..." and cries softy in your ear... Man, you're on you're OWN about her, but I can tell you, should take this album home with you. Then hit the road...

HASH(0x957bd1f8) étoiles sur 5 Let's Get Drunk and Brood 7 février 2004
Par Alex Junaid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you've read my previous reviews, you're probably familliar with my method of buying albums: wandering around Amoeba records for hours, then deciding on some random album because it has a really neat cover (and if I'm feeling especially critical - cool song titles). This has resulted in a few poor choices, which I'll leave to your imagination, but also some gold nuggets, and this record is one.
I should point out that I'm a big fan of nocturnal, atmospheric music with a distinctly rural-american tinge, and that pretty well describes this album. My knee-jerk classification (if that kind of thing matters to you) would be to say alt-country, but lumping Songs: Ohia in with the like of Whiskeytown and Son Volt doesn't quite gel, especially given the strong blues influence throughout.
To dive into more specific analysis, let's break down the record into its components. The voices jump out immediately. Jason Molina leads the pack, singing lead on three quarters of the albums eight tracks. He channels Neil Young to an extent; they share the same kind of drawling intensity, but whatever comparison you want to make, the sound is still a remarkably pleasant one.
The voices on the remaining two tracks are a mixed bag. The male vocal on 'The Old Black Hen' (I THINK this is Lawrence Peters, based on the breif liner notes, but I'm not positive) pours it on a little thick for my taste, but bigger fans of a classic country (definitely an applicable term on this track) might dig it more than I do.
Scout Niblett's vocals on 'Peoria Lunch Box Blues' on the other hand, steal the spotlight. Her turn here is a slow, blues drenched number with a subtle melody sung in a smoky vocal, not unlike Cat Power's Chan Marshall, but in a higher register and with a bit more force and confidence than Chan usually puts forth. It's positively mellifluous (I've been looking for an excuse to use that word all week).
The sonic canvas over which all of this occurrs is comprised of twanging electric guitars, (the kind where you'd expect to see a lit cigarette placed in the head), madolins, lapsteels, organs, and thrumming basses.
'John Henry Split My Heart' is as forceful a rock number as you're likely to find in this kind of setting, with distortioned guitars churning over a pounding bass drum that connotates the intensity of the steel-drivin man - that is until it drops off into a piano solo only to build back up again. 'Just Be Simple' is a low tempo, relatively laid back, melancholy rumination. 'Farewell Transmission' opens the record with a clean guitar and builds up to a dramatic conclusion that ends with the command "listen!" 'Hold on Magnolia' on the other hand, is a slow ballad right out of a barroom in the old west that ends the record on it's sweetest moment.
The lyrics are... well, they're there. They're not really the focus; no passages come to mind that are brilliant enough on paper to be really worth mentioning, but there aren't any cringe-worthy moments here either. Mostly they fit the tone and atmosphere of the music.
And that's the biggest deliver about this album: it's atmosphere. Actually, given that, listening to this is probably bad for my health - it makes me want to smoke a few ciggys, drink some gin and wallow in the poetry of my own sadness for 45 minutes of a warm summer night. So if that sounds like your kind of thing, then you'll enjoy this, and even if not, it's still worth at least a listen. Four stars.

Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

The sweet heaven that is Songs: Ohia descends once again to earth in Magnolia Electric Co. This album is quite good. Farewell Transmission introduces us to one of the best albums I have heard this year, and one of the most wonderfully crafted songs ever. Its musical atmosphere and intensity mixes brilliantly with the bluntness of Molina vocals. There is a Lou Reed-like matter of factness in his vocal that lends the tune a tone of honesty.
Again this album favors quality over quantity as it incorporates all the dynamics of a good 12 track album into seven. It shines both musically and lyrically. Like My Morning Jacket, there is a huge vareity of style that makes the album quite robust and a wonderful listening experience. Will Oldham-like vocals contrast greatly against the modern country voice in The Old Black Hen. This is a very important moment in the album, as it reminds us what we are missing in the contemporary country tradition. Presented to us are two very different characters. The voice of Molina is wavering, equivocal and sometimes off key, while the vocal on Black Hen is certain and hyper-masculine even in its lament. This is what makes Songs: Ohia, MMJ, and Oldham so good. The voice is unsure and humble, and and it allows the lyric to be expansive and encompassing rather than individual and "mannish".
Anyway, despite all that mumbo-jumbo, this album is very, very good as is anything by this band...Buy it, Buy it...and...Listen!

HASH(0x957bd354) étoiles sur 5 Songs: Ohia's "Magnolia Electric Co" truly has a soul ... 30 juin 2003
Par El Roi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Songs: Ohia's "Magnolia Electric Co" truly has a soul of its own. I have been listening to this album at least once a day for well over a month. Jason Molina and company had already stunned fans and critiqes with the 2002 release "Didn't It Rain." "Blue Factory Flame" is the song that turned me on to Songs: Ohia and I only wish I had discovered them earlier. "Magnolia" is filled with music that has a haunting presence and lyrics as honest as the day is long. "I put my foot to the floor to make up for the miles I've been losing, I've been running out of things I didn't even know I was using" and "You'll never hear me talk about one day getting out, Why put a new address on the same old loneliness" are just a few of the well turned phrases that Molina delivers in his shakey, yet soulful, Neil Young-esque voice. While six of the eight songs have Molina as primary vocalist, two songs have new Songs: Ohia players stepping up to take on lead vocal duties and singing Molina-penned songs. Lawrence Peters takes the lead on "The Old Black Hen" with his fantastic Merle Haggard-esque country croon and Scout Niblett appears courtesy of Secretly Canadian records on "Peoria Lunch Box Blues." "Magnolia" was recorded live and in its entirety by Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago.
