最近亂找YouTube有什麼歌曲能聽
結果翻了本人最愛的前衛大團"夢劇場(Dream Theater)"
聽完那整首歌 總歸一句 內心真的很激動 全長24分鐘......
"Octavarium"(第八樂章)

 

(Part 1)第一段歌詞
(我整首歌不想翻譯了 希望看的懂又好聽)

I. SOMEONE LIKE HIM

I never wanted to become someone like him so secure
Content to live each day just like the last
I was sure I knew that
This was not for me
And I wanted so much more
Far beyond what I could see
So I swore that I'd
Never be someone like him

So many years have passed
Since I proclaimed
My independence
My mission
My aim
And my vision
So secure
Content to live each day like it's my last
It's wonderful to know
That I could be
Something more than what I dreamed
Far beyond what I could see
Still I swear that I'm
Missing out this time

As far as I could tell
Theres nothing more I need
But still I ask myself
Could this be everything
Then all I swore
That I would never be was now
So suddenly
The only thing I wanted
To become
To be someone just like him



(Part 2)第二段歌詞

II. MEDICATE (Awakening)

A doctor sitting next to me
He asked me how I feel
Not sure I understand his questioning
He says I've been away a while
But thinks he has cured me
From a state of catatonic sleep

For 30 years
Where have I been
Eyes open
But not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear
As my conscience slips away

Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening

A higher dosage he prescribes
But there's no guarantee
I feel it starting to take over me

I tell him not to be ashamed
There's no one who's to blame
A second shot
A brief awakening

I feel the relapse
Can't break free
Eyes open
But not getting through to me

Medicate me
Infiltrate me
Side effects appear
As my conscience slips away

Medicate me
Science failing
Conscience fading fast
Can't you stop what's happening

III. FULL CIRCLE

Sailing on the seven seize the day tripper Diem's ready
Jack the Ripper Owen Wilson Phillips and my Supper's ready
Lucy in the Sky with diamond Dave's not here I come to save the Day for
Nightmare Cinema show me the way to get back home again

Running forward
Falling back
Spinning round and round
Looking outward
Reaching in
Scream without a sound

Leaning over
Crawling up
Stumbling all around
Losing my place
Only to find I've come full circle

flying off the handle with careful with
that axe eugene gene the dance machine
messiah light my fire gabba gabba
hey hey my my generation's home again

Running forward
Falling back
Spinning round and round
Looking outward
Reaching in
Scream without a sound

Leaning over
Crawling up
Stumbling all around
Losing my place
Only to find I've come full circle



(Part 3)第三段歌詞

IV. INTERVALS

(Root)
Our deadly sins feel his mortal wrath
Remove all obstacles from our path

(Second)
Asking questions
Search for clues
The answer's been right in front of you

(Third)
Try to break through
Long to connect
fall on deaf ears and failed muted breath

(Fourth)
Loyalty, trust, faith in desire
Carries love through each darkest fire

(Fifth)
Tortured insanity
A smothering hell
Try to escape but to no avail

(Sixth)
The calls of admirers
Who claim they adore
Drain all your lifeblood while begging for more

(Seventh)
Innocent victims for merciless crimes
Fall prey to some madmen's impulsive designs

(Octave)
Step after step
We try controlling our fate
When we finally start living it has become too late

Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium
Trapped inside this Octavarium

V. RAZOR'S EDGE

We move in circles
Balanced all the while
On a gleaming razor's edge

A perfect sphere
Colliding with our fate
This story ends where it began......

-------------------------------------------------------

這首曲子是夢劇場在第八張專輯上的第八首(是巧遇還是安排好的?)
專輯與本曲同名"Octavarium"
2005年 發行了此專輯

今年6月23日 他們又要發新大碟囉!
"Black Clouds & Silver Linings"
目前這五位前衛大仔 應該還在為新專輯錄音吧
總之期待他們的新歌~

"Octavarium" 第八樂章
雖然不知道它的由來有何用意 重點是他們的曲風與架構
這是比1995年一張EP專輯的一首歌"A Change Of Seasons"
還要更有感覺 更有張力 以及更撼動人心的一長篇樂章

開頭聽了很有冥想意味 但有時剛聽也會很想睡覺......
主唱部分 功力明顯一年比一年還更專業
接下來整曲Solo部分 幾乎都是鍵盤手一手操控
電吉他則在一旁配樂

還有我最愛的樂團鼓手「Mike Portnoy」
就算是柔和又帶勁的第八樂章 花式依樣擺出
實在是有所不及這位高強的前輩!

整曲最終段 請注意最後面的電吉他Solo
最後一個高音比高八度還要強
只能說這就是"Octavarium"的最強巔峰!
第八樂章就此磅礡完結!

從資料上查詢到 DT的鍵盤手「Jordan Rudess」
還為"第八樂章"專輯表明:
「要回歸Images and Words的風格」
("Images and Words"是夢劇場在1992年的大碟
亦是本團自創團以來 為第二張錄音室專輯)
聽鍵盤手說的那句 那當時應該早點把"Images and Words"專輯
好好把它認識一遍 到了"Octavarium" 2005年專輯聽一遍之後
才會慢慢感覺出有復古的威力

Have a great listening!

(12/16 補注:原先的三個影片因為被移除不能聽
因此當天就把三個音樂影片換掉重更新 現在應該能正常聽了~
不過三個影片更新後 從第一個影片後段到全曲結束
有可能歌詞陸續不對分段位置 願聽者請見諒....)

  • 這讓我想起PinkFloyd
    原來xh大聽音樂也是重口味
  • 前衛金屬的歌曲風格很多樣
    並且我個人還比較喜歡鼓手的打法 幾乎變拍子的部分都掌握得很好!
    總之這樂團是真的非常讚就是了!
