POP DEPRESSION ALBUMS OF THE YEAR 2005.

A L'Origine01_Benjamin Biolay_A L’origine_EMI
Ismejan od kritike posle albuma “Home” i “prokazan” zbog braka sa Kjarom Mastrojani, Benžaman Biole odgovara “dušebrižnicima” na jedini mogući način – “koliko me ne zanima šta mislite.”

Ovo je ploča koja nadahnjuje, ispunjava i podstiče. Radost zbog rođenja deteta, razočaranje zbog napuštanja prijatelja, porodica kao smisao života i muzika u slavu života.
KLJUČNE PESME: A L’ORIGINE, COURS!, GROUND ZERO BAR

01_My Morning Jacket_Z_ATO/RCA
Brutalno iskreno, potresno i moćno. Kao da na transfuziju uzimate plutonijum. A opet tako lično, “šareno”, direktno i zabavno…

ZSF-epik u sudaru sa prirodom i samoćom i Jim James kao “karika koja povezuje” Neila Younga, Ozzyja i Davida Byrna. Reverb možda jeste “so eighties” ali najzad da se neko “poigra” dobrim stvarima iz te decenije i da ih učini “vanvremenskim”. Cosmic American Music.
KLJUČNE PESME: DONDANTE, LAY LOW, ANYTIME

02_Okkervil River_Black Sheep Boy/Black Sheep Boy Appendix_Jagjaguwar
“Black Sheep Boy” je odgovor novog milenijuma na Tweedyjev “Beeing There”. Odgovor koji je duboko promišljen, melodičan, iskren, ličan i direktan. Dok se smenjuju pop dragulji, honky-tonk minijature, “patos” i introspekcije, solaže na lap steel gitari, usnoj harmonici ili trubi, nespremni smo na katarzično finale koje nas očekuje – osmominutnu monumentalnu “So Come Back, I Am Waiting” i “prolog” u obliku “A Glow”. Odavno niko svoje “ludilo” nije ovako hrabro i direktno izneo u javnost.
KLJUČNE PESME: SO COME BACK I’M WAITING, STONE, A GLOW

03_Antony and the Johnsons_I Am a Bird Now_Secretly Canadian
Retko se dešava da jedan umetnik svojom pojavom, posebnošću, talentom i karakterom toliko ujedini stavove totalno različitih ljudi, kao što se to desilo Antonyju u poslednjih nekoliko meseci. Iako je prvi solo album zvanično objavio još 2000. godine, 4 godine kasnije doživeo je pravu afirmaciju. Tokom
2005. recenzije novog albuma I’m A Bird Now kretale su se od superlativa do egzaltacije (to “stanje” nije zaobišlo ni UNCUT i MOJO), a čini se da Antony još nije napisao svoje najbolje pesme i da još uvek napreduje i kao muzičar i kao “performer”.
KLJUČNE PESME: HOPE THERE IS SOMEONE, SPIRALLING, YOU ARE MY SISTER

04_Broken Social Scene_Broken Social Scene_Arts & Crafts/City Slang
Posle skoro tri godine rada, čestih promene koncepcije, broja pesama, aranžmana, filosofije … kanadski “wild bunch” još jednom napravio je autentično remek delo. Album Broken Social Scene muzička je enciklopedija sa direktnim citatima idola i posvetama prijateljima – u slavu života i ljubavi. Čist eskapizam i razlog za život.
KLJUČNE PESME: SHORELINE (7/4), WINDSURFING NATION, SUPERCONNECTED

05_Damon & Naomi_The Blue Earth_20/20/20
U godini u kojoj Luna i definitivno prestaje sa radom, malo je radosnih stvari ostalo za sve fanove Galaxie 500. Možda samo jedna velika i epska ploča Damon & Naomi? Album “The Earth Is Blue” ima sve odlike remek dela. “Svemirski pop” u kombinaciji sa poezijom/vinjetama o ljudima, gradovima i osećanjima, sve prekrasno aranžirano i pojačano genijalnim psihodeličnim gitarskim deonicama Michio Kuriharae iz sastava Ghost (nezvaničnim trećim članom benda).
KLJUČNE PESME: THE ROBOT SPEAKS, HOUSE OF GLASS, A SECOND LIFE

06_Laura Cantrell_Humming By The The Flowered Vine_Matador
Treći studijski album u karijeri radijskog DJ-a i Pilove muze Lore Kantrel i još jedan “popdepresivni” klasik. U jednoj recenziji ovog albuma naišao sam na izraz “bittersweet pop” i zaista nije lepo od autora što stvari ne zove pravim imenom :). 39 minuta vaše pažnje za povratak u vreme hrabrih, iskrenih i slobodnih ljudi.
KLJUČNE PESME: KHAKI & CORDUROY, LETTER, BEES

07_Low_The Great Destroyer_Sub Pop
Jedan kupac “The Great Destroyer” albuma na sajtu amazon.com napisao je sledeće: “This is a terrible Cd. I can’t believe I wasted money on it. All hype and no substance. A perfect CD if your contemplating suicide and you need something to push you over the edge. Don’t waste your time.” I sada, kao, neko treba da odoli ovakvom pozivu i ne kupi album!?
KLJUČNE PESME: SILVER RIDER, CUE THE STRINGS, WHEN I GO DEAF

08_The Decemberists_Picaresque_KRS
Najbolja ploča u karijeri Colina Meloya i ulaznica za “Major League.” Prepustite se maštanju uz priče o princezama, špijunima, samoubistvima, duhovima, političarima, kanibalima i (ne)slavnim fudbalskim karijerama.
KLJUČNE PESME: THE ENGINE DRIVER, THE SPORTING LIFE, WE BOTH GO DOWN TOGETHER

09_Kathleen Edwards_Back To Me_Zoe/Rounder/Maple
Savršen osećaj za pop pesmu, drskost u neograničenim količinama, flertovanje i senzualnost. Kao najbolji “prvi dejt” koji se nikada neće desiti.
KLJUČNE PESME: WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?, AWAY, PINK EMERSON RADIO

10_Queens Of The Stone Age_Lullabies To Paralyze_Interscope
Hard rok himne, psihodelija, šamanizam i čist seks. Josh Homme kao “postmodernistička” kombinacija Jima Morrisona i Roberta Planta.
KLJUČNE PESME: “YOU GOT A KILLER SCENE THERE, MAN”, LONG SLOW GOODBYE, I NEVER CAME
