Avis sur l’album

After the near-disaster of forced democracy on Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant and the stultifying holding pattern of the Storytelling soundtrack, where Todd Solondz brought out their worst tendencies, it seemed that Belle & Sebastian were disappearing into their own preciousness, but then something unexpected happened: they returned to form with 2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress. This was unexpected not just because their last efforts suggested that B&S no longer could produce a consistently engaging work, but because their savior came in the guise of Trevor Horn, the man who successfully helped Yes turn new wave, the man best known for his synth-heavy productions of ABC and Frankie Goes to Hollywood, the man who was last heard producing everybody's favorite Russian teen lesbian duo, Tatu. That diverse resumé suggests that Horn knows how to play to a band's strengths, and he certainly helps Belle & Sebastian regain their focus and vision, turning Dear Catastrophe Waitress into one of the group's best albums. One of the reasons that album works so well is that the notion that the band has no leader has been discarded, with Stuart Murdoch thankfully serving as the lead singer and songwriter throughout the record. Murdoch's songs are firmly within the patented Belle & Sebastian style, and while it may be true that he's not stretching himself much as a writer, that doesn't matter because he sounds assured and confident, turning out a set of songs that are finely crafted and tuneful. It's among his catchiest work, if not quite his cleverest, since the words occasionally offer an overdose of whimsy that leads to queasiness. And that's where Horn comes in — by keeping the focus on the tunes and subtly varying the production, he's made Dear Catastrophe Waitress the richest musical offering yet from Belle & Sebastian. If it doesn't quite have the timeless feel of If You're Feeling Sinister, so be it, since this is their first record since that defining album to offer a similarly rich listen, and that's quite a comeback for a band that only an album ago seemed to peak too early.

Avis des utilisateurs

B&S sous le soleil californien

C'est l'album de la rupture. Plein de soleil, un peu de surproduction, des fantaisies pop tres reussies (Step into my office baby, DCW...), de tres jolies morceaux de melancolie (Lord Anthony), ... et meme une balade a la guitare seche (Piazza New York catcher)!
Certains regretteront la melancolie et l'amateurisme des premiers albums, mais pour moi c'est clairement le meilleur album de B&S, et celui que je reecoute avec le plus de plaisir.

Formé à Glasgow en 1996 autour de l'auteur-compositeur-interprète Stuart Murdoch, Belle and Sebastian est un collectif musical écossais avec un penchant prononcé pour la ligne claire mélodique, une esquive la plus systématique possible des modalités de promotions habituelles et une humilité, associée à une image de rats de bibliothèque, qui ont su conquérir le coeur des nostalgiques de la pop façon The Smiths. Musicalement influencé par les Beach Boys ou les Hollies, Stuart Murdoch possède en outre...
