Product Information / Track List

★2018年Record Store Day限量黑膠好評如潮全面發行CD版本,樂迷盛讚:「最佳現場專輯之一!」
★樂團生涯最重要專輯《Boxer》十周年,冷冽與溫暖的衝突美感,僅此一場完美呈現。

布魯克林的勁旅The National絕對是現今樂壇中不可忽略的存在,從第一張同名專輯至今近20年的發展,已經譜出了數不盡首令人心碎以及充滿愛的作品,而我們絕對都忘不了2014年他們在台大體育館帶來的感動……。

一直都覺得這個樂團組合相當有趣,主唱Matt Berninger低沈磁嗓與他的高大的身材似乎都顯得有些突兀;貝斯手和鼓手是兄弟檔(Scott Devendorf、Bryan Devendorf),兩名吉他手甚至是巒生兄弟(Aaron Dessner、Bryce Dessner),至今似乎是找不出編制如此有「血緣」的組合。《Boxer》發行後十年過去,The National專輯一張比一張更加有層次以及突破,無論是更多合成音色的使用和銅管樂器的堆疊,使音樂更加有電影畫面感,而畫面的景色因人而異,然而無論聽見看見的是什麼,「國際牌」確實的替我們揭開關於種種回憶的幕。近期收起以往狂妄式的噪音聲響,並且似乎更加多了份老練的自信。

一開始鈴聽這張位於比利時的現場專輯(這場演出是去年新專輯《Sleep Well Beast》歐洲巡迴的最後一場)並沒有覺得有太多不一樣,直到主唱Matt在耳邊唱起:「We're half awake in a fake empire......」雖是熟悉的旋律以及器樂演奏,但現在的他們讓這些舊專輯曲目變得更加沉穩、並把太過銳利的部份磨出了美麗的光澤:譬如Matt的嗓音似乎變得更溫暖許多。但沒有改變的是作品中所傳達的衝突美碰撞——絕望與希望和冷暖的矛盾,這些事物所製造出的特殊美感。

而曲目到了〈Green Gloves〉我才意識到了最初聽到這首歌的時候自己似乎才17歲......轉眼間時光已流逝過去。The National的創作卻沒有因為年紀的影響而變得太過世故,而重演《Boxer》這張經典之作,在這個世代聆聽的我們卻同樣地再次被溫暖感動。 (deca joins謝俊彥)
