感想 - Iron Maiden / A Matter of Life and Death

ヘヴィ・メタルの大御所の1つ、Iron Maidenが久しぶりの新譜。
バンド名だけで思わず買う。

(ジャケット)
Iron Maidenのアルバムジャケットにはおなじみの、エディ・ザ・ヘッドはもちろん健在。
今回は戦車の上。姿は小さいが。

(全体の印象)
6人体制となってからの最初のアルバム・Brave New World以降の音楽性、例えばギタリスト3人体制がもたらした分厚いギターなどをそのまま引き継いでいる。
The X Factor以降、隠し味にシンセ/ストリングスを使うことが多くなった気がするが、それも同様。
ヴォーカルのブルース・ディッキンソンも年齢を感じさせず、力強いヴォーカルを聴かせる。

一方で、A Matter of Life and Deathでは全体的に長い曲が増えている。
その証拠に、10曲で約72分(1曲平均7分以上)と、Dream Theaterほどではないが平均が長め。
テンポだが、少しゆっくり目の割りに疾走感があるのは、緩急をうまくつけているからか。
(解説によれば、レコーディングに当たり、想定より遅いテンポになってしまったレコーディング予定曲が収録された個人練習用CDを使って各メンバーは練習してしまったが、そちらの方がよかったため、予定よりもテンポを下げることにしたようだ)
ジャケットに戦車が描かれているように、今回は戦争をテーマにしたり``war''(戦争)が歌詞に含まれる曲が多い。

Iron Maidenは、ヘヴィ・メタルの枠を外れずに守る一方で、極端ではないが少しずつ自分たちの音楽性を変えていった。
そのことが良くわかるアルバム。
# そういう意味では、ジャンルこそぜんぜん違うが、サザンオールスターズとIron Maidenはある意味似ていると思う。両者とも今でも音楽シーンの前線に立ち、メンバーが若くないにもかかわらず若いファンも獲得し続けていると感じるからだ

Iron Maidenを良く聴く人たちにとっては、期待を裏切らないアルバムに仕上がったという印象。
ただ、上で書いたように曲が長めなので、Iron Maiden初心者には不向きかも。

ちなみに、Iron Maidenは日本武道館を含む来日公演を予定している。

(各曲一言感想)
1. Different World
最初の曲にふさわしい、へヴィな曲。Iron Maidenの持ち味が生きている
2, These Colours Don't Run
緩急のつけ方が見事な曲で、テンポの割にスピード感がある
3. Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
ゆっくり目の曲で、曲も長め。中盤のブルースの歌がパワフル
4. The Pilgrim
全体的にパワフルな曲で、この曲も緩急がうまく付いている
5. The Longest Day
ミドルテンポでヘヴィかつ長め。トリプルギターの作る分厚い音も注目
6. Out of the Shadows
バラード。この曲もトリプルギター(後半部分)が生きている
7. The Recarnation of Benjamin Breeg
自分の罪が原因で呪われた男についての曲で、テンポはゆっくり目。曲は長さの割りにそれほど複雑ではない
8. For the Grater Good of God
9分半近い曲で、テンポがめまぐるしく変わり、構成も複雑。ギターソロもたっぷり聴ける。歌詞のテーマも重い
9. Lord of Light
この曲もテンポが何度も変わり、緩急がある構成
10. The Legacy
前半はアコースティックギターを前面に出し、後半はそれほど早くないテンポだがヘヴィ。8曲目ほど複雑ではないが、9分半近い大曲らしい構成

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
