Shoot The Runner



Kasabian's new release is determined to be one the most celebrated cds of 2006. It's as narcicistic and pompous as its tittle indicates and truly succeeds on experimenting with new soundscapes creating a coherent cd, eventhough not all of the eleven tracks share the same creativity.

EMPIRE sets the tone for the whole album. Its marching military beat, the hypnotic violins during the chorus and the changing electronic bases make this song one of those that has to be heard to be understood. A really risky single, definitely not mainstream. A piece of musical art.

SHOOT THE RUNNER is a frentic melody, based on a set of clapping hands. Heard to be the 2nd single. It has the same musical aura of their first cd but sounds crispy new.

LAST TRIP is another fast paced song. Has a kind of retro feel, mostly due to its heavily-charged vocal background.

ME PLUS ONE keeps on incorporating an eastern flavour on the band's new sound. Begins semi-acousticly and keeps on with the rythm until a tricky violin melody is added at the end. Simply gorgeous.

SUN/RISE/LIGHT/FLIES serves as another example of what I've mentioned on the previous track. Is truly anthemic, makes you feel like travelling through space and time. Song like this has gained them comparison to the Stone Roses. Marvelous.

APNOEA it's a techno danceable interlude. Addictive but short.

BY MY SIDE sticks to your head instantly. Danceable donwtempo song, greately mixed and produced. Could crowd at the same time a chill out bar and a trendy disco.

STUNTMAN is another heavily electronic song. Mind blowing, fast, agressive, feels like a gunshot.

SEEK AND DESTROY relies on a looped videogame-like beat. Trippy.

BRITISH LEGION turns the album upside down before the grand finale as it's mainly acoustic. Sounds like a late Beatles era song.

THE DOBERMAN finishes the album as an apocalyptic anthem. Listen to the whole of it and explore the changes of rythm, the dums, the trumpets, the voices...

The curse about the sophomore release is over for Kasabian. They've reached to the musical maturity that some of us were anticipating since their self-titled album. Can't wait to see where they'll next be headed to.
Until then, there's plenty to enjoy here...

Ok Go, Again!
지난 30일 Ok Go가 드디어 두 번째 앨범을 발매했다는
반가운 소식을 들었다.
아마존에 CD를 주문을 해 놓고 OK Go와의 새로운 만남을
고대하고 있다.
Ok Go, Again!

랜드 오브 데드
<살아있는 시체들의 밤(Night of Living Dead)>으로 시작해 <살아있는 시체들의
새벽(Dawn of Living Dead)>과 <살아있는 시체들의 (Day of Living Dead)>로
세 번씩이나 공포의 오르가즘을 맛보게 했던 로메로 감독이 20년 만에 다시
선보인 새로운 시체 영화 <랜드 오브 데드(Land of Dead)>.
한 마디로 정신은 건재하나 재미는 사라진 실망스러운 영화였다.

20년 만에 돌아 온 로메로 감독의 침실 테크닉은 20년 동안 수 많은
빡센 자극에 오염된 내 몸을 조금도 불 태우지 못했다.
동지는 적보다 지루한 법이고 부부간의 근친상간적 섹스는
스트레인져와의 원 나잇 스탠드보다 덜 흥미진진하다는 슬픈 진실을
내 눈과 몸으로 확인했을 뿐.

'인간이 잔인해 진만큼 놈들은 더 영리해졌다!' 고?
인간도 마찬가지지만...잔머리 열나 굴리는 좀비는 재미없다.
시체 3부작도 사회 비판의 목소리가 우렁찬 작품들이였지만
<랜드 오브 데드>는 그 목소리가 너무 노골적이고 직접적이다.
이래서 나이가 들면 꼰대 소리를 듣게 되는 것일까?

로메로 동지는 '악의 축' 제거에 혈안이 된 부시에게 경고의 메세지를 날리고
싶었나 보다.
어차피 머리 나쁜 부시는 경고 메세지 따윈 이해 못할터 차리리 폭탄을 날리지.
어째서 로메로는 단 한명의 머리 나쁜 관객을 위해 머리 좋은 수 많은 관객들을
포기했을까? 오호 통재라!
