❤Album Review:
Rarely have violins been used to such goosebump-raising effect as they are on the opening song of this stunning soundtrack to what was surely an epic break-up. The First Days of Spring is the rare killer sophomore release that shows a band clearly in charge of its artistic development. The set’s architecture mimics the emotional stages of a broken heart, and though the elegant first three tracks (acceptance, loneliness) are hard to beat, one track sequence in particular — four through seven — is particularly effective. Floor toms, violins and shakers converge in quiet elegy on “My Broken Heart,” which ends with ruptured, howling guitars, but two brief instrumentals bookend the determinedly optimistic and joyful, choir-driven “Love of an Orchestra.” After a misstep in the name of healing (“Stranger”), our protagonist partakes in more optimism (“Blue Skies”), engages in deep soul-searching (“Slow Glass”), and finally accepts the situation’s inevitable denouement (“My Door Is Always Open”). For those romantic shipwrecks that lie ahead, The First Days of Spring may offer not only solace, but some profoundly enjoyable listening as well.

开春的第一天,是多么美好的一个季节。带着这样的具有诗情画意的时节,Noah and the Whale 为他们即将发行的第二张新专辑《The First Days of Spring 》命名了这样的好名字,《The First Days of Spring 》不但有着一个好名字,也有着很怡人的专辑封面,4个大男生像是春游,又像是夏令营,更像是悠闲的漫步在乡间,随手拿着相机,记录夕阳西下前的田园美景。视觉上,Noah and the Whale 已经为自己开了一个好头,虽然我对英国出的英式乐队很欣赏,但是要是出了这样的浪漫民谣乐队,就成了大爱的对象,这也成了我的推荐的风格了。在今年的一个月他们4个开始进入录音棚,开始工作为《The First Days of Spring 》工作。

新专辑一共收录11首新歌,专辑的开篇曲是专辑的同名“The First Days of Spring”,一个以单鼓点开始,缓慢的伴来吉他声,随后多种古典音效随之而来,越来越饱满的模式让耳朵慢慢进入陶醉的大门,当主唱Charlie Fink想起他浑厚但不沙哑的嗓音时,就是你步入陶醉的时候。“The First Days of Spring”是一个完美漂亮的开篇。接下来的“Our Window”则是以低沉缓慢的钢琴开始,简单的旋律让人听的出是一首有些苦涩的歌曲。Charlie Fink再次不吝啬他那低沉浑厚的嗓子,为这首歌在营造一份气氛。到了“My Broken Heart”就是一首相对于比较欢快的歌了,有了较快的节奏。但是以Noah and the Whale的风格,也不会让这首歌快乐到那去,虽然有后面较快的小提琴旋律,不过隐约之中还是透露着一丝伤感之意。显然这样的模式,很上耳,很好听。”Instrumental I” 和“Instrumental II” 是Noah and the Whale展现实力和天赋的穿插,俩首纯器乐的曲子被穿插到专辑当中。乐器也是运用了种类繁多的乐器,而节奏则更像是古典剧那样,时快时慢,有惊险有平静。“Slow Glass”也是我特别喜爱的歌之一,中等的节奏,饱满的演唱。最后,还有结束曲的“My Door Is Always Open” 也相当有诗意,很随性的一首歌,简单的吉他旋律,高潮动人的小合唱等,这些,那些,就是我大爱这张专辑的原因了。
