Description du produit
Das dritte Kula Shaker Album "Strangefolk" aus dem Jahr 2007.
Kula Shaker est arrivé dans le microcosme de la britpop, alors en fin de banquet après la bataille des singles de Blur et Oasis, tel un cheveau sur la soupe avec son premier album K inondé de psychédélisme et ses quatre singles tubesques. Quelques déclarations plus tard, le quatuor sombrait corps et biens non sans livrer un deuxième album moins glamour.
En 2004, ces Anglais fascinés par l'Inde décident de remettre le couvert, enchaînent EP et tournées, jusqu'à ce troisième opus censé apporter un nouveau souffle. En fait de nouveauté, Kula Shaker ressert la même recette qui lui a valu le succès à grand coups de riffs piochés dans l'Encyclopédie des sixties et de poses chantées complètement éculées. A moins d'être pervers, comment croire à cette regurgitation botoxée du trésor de guerre ?
Huit ans de placard n'ont pas suffi à Crispian Mills et ses camarades pour livrer une telle suite de clichés d'un rock terriblement daté et sans âme.

Je recommande !

When I recently found out Kula Shaker had rebanded back in 2007, I looked at reviews of their most recent albums. This album got mediocre reviews in mainstream media outlets. When I heard the political content on the album I understood why they weren't promoting it- from Die For Love: " Don't want to be wrapped up in a flag or spill my blood upon the sand. Don't want to die for some pack of lies or a dream they made in a room", and from Dictator of the Free World: " I'm a major league sociopath." This is politically incorrect speech that the oligarchs (who ARE major league sociopaths) do not allow to be served to the masses. It's refreshing to hear someone express these views in a popular culture format these days.
The sound varies from their old hard rock, to softer ballads. The political content is confined to a couple of songs at the beginning of the album. It all works and most of the material is inspired. Check this out.
Then my pre-ordered "Strangefolk" arrived and I found that my fears were not to be realized. It is an outstanding release and is a welcome addition to the other two full-length studio releases. It is not "K" or "Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts", either in style or approach (though it is closer to their 1999 efforts than the earlier material).
1. Out on the Highway - 9/10
This one is a very solid song. It has multilayered instrument tracks that are balanced with softer verses to create a near perfect blend of wall-of-sound with moments of calm and quiet.
2. Second Sight - 10/10
There is a reason this one is the first single. It has all of the elements that make Kula Shaker such a phenomena in this age of mediocre artist offerings. An amazing 60's vibe is embedded in this song. The vocals, harmonies, organ, beat and guitars are all outstanding.
3. Die For Love - 6/10
A slow, plodder of a song. I like it well enough, but compared to the others it is neither fun nor particularly catchy. It has a heavy beat and a great lead, and is not bad for the style employed. "Mystical Machine Gun" was slow, but it was freakin' amazing in its scope and depth. This one is just ok.
4. Great Dictator - 9/10
Great tambourine-laced beat and terrific backing vocals. This track is not only a great rocker, but the lyrics are a hoot. I won't spoil the punch line, but the vocals are perfect for the message. I like this one a lot.
5. Strangefolk - N/A
Strange music with a David Lynch-like voice track over the top. One of those weird read in reverse and then played in reverse so that it sounds a bit off types of things. Kind of cool, but not really a "song" if you get my drift.
6. Song of Love/Narayana - 10/10
A bit of the Middle East (chanting) with a 60's Bond-theme horn section thrown in and populated with traditional Crispian vocals and the trademark harmonies. The song is a complex collection of styles that has to be heard to be understood. Great beat too!
7. Shadowlands - 7/10
Slow, strolling tempo with great atmosphere. A nice song in general, but a bit tame on the whole. I know that not every song needs a steady, driving beat and lots of layered effects/instruments, but those are the songs that appeal to me the most. Again, the song rolls along and is quite enjoyable. It does calm things down after the preceding track.
8. Fool that I Am - 7/10
Kind of Doors-like musically, with verse lyrics kind of Peter, Paul and Mary-ish. This one is another mid-tempo, lower-level offering that is good (not great). It has many VERY 60's sounding elements, but again is oceans away from the heavier stuff.
9. Hurricane Season - 9/10
This one has what can be identified as a jazz beat, though the music and style continue on with the 60's vibe established with "Fool..." Starts quiet with a crossroads-y lyrical style that is blown away by the time we hit the middle of the song. The instruments come on hard and heavy and are just amazing. Then it calms back down for the final minute or two.
10. O'l Jack Tar- 9/10
Quiet and the music reminds me a bit of "Flying" from Magical Mystery Tour. I like it, even though it is fairly soft. The vocals have a nice reverb, echo-y quality that I find appealing.
11. 6Ft Down Blues - 10/10
Kind of a departure from the rest of the styles. A nice heavy beat throughout most of the song with Crispian retaining the bluegrass singing style used throughout most of the songs. It isn't the same approach as the other high-ranked songs, but it is still a great tune. Darker in its tone and generally heavier in the overal tone.
12. Dr. Kitt - 8/10
This one is another with the keyboards lifted right from a Doors song of your choice. This final track is another mid-tempo with lots of 60's vibes. Harps, flutes and the weird "Strangefolk" voice at the end of the song make this one a surreal experience.
13 Super CB Operator (Bonus Track) - 9/10
When I heard this one on "Freedom Lovin' People EP" I was not super impressed. I'll be honest though, and let you in on a secret. It is actually a fun and extremely catchy song. I'm enjoying it much more now than previously. If I hadn't given the song a middling review on the EP, I'd bump it up to a 10, though it is not standard Kula fare.
14. Wannabe Famous (Bonus Track) - 8/10
The final listed tune is a faster tempo song with a non-traditional Kula Shaker approach to the architecture of the transitions. The chorus has some Who-like qualities, and on the whole it is a somewhat unconventional track.
15. Persephone (Hidden Track) - 7/10
This hidden track is quiet and acoustic for the most part. I could almost imagine Andy Sturmer writing something like this after "Spilt Milk" in the same vein as "Russian Hill". It is a nice, if not too memorable closer.
Summary: I loved the release overall, and would recommend it to both Kula Shaker fans and interested parties alike. It does not have the cohesion of "Peasants..." and may not have radio friendly songs like Tattva or Hey Dude from "K", but it is a new sound for the band and it is one of the best releases of 2007. It may take a few listens, but once it has become intgrated into your mind, you will agree that it is quite good indeed. They have not simply rehashed their previous sounds and as a result may not please everyone, but think that it is a stunning release and well worthy of a listen.
