JACK: The End Of The Way It's Always Been (Les Disques du Crépuscule, 2002)

Rad grupe JACK pratim od njihovih samih početaka. Ni sam se više ne sjećam kako je došlo do mog upoznavanja s njihovom glazbom, no dopali su mi se na prvi pogled i to je dovelo do činjenice da su u mojoj cd-kolekciji prisutni svi njihovi originalni albumi i singlovi. Isto se desilo s trećim albumom "The End Of The Way It's Always Been". (Hvala Mirna!).

Dosadašnju glazbu grupe JACK krasile su "bogate" melodije, te specifičan i melodramatičan glas Anthonya Reyndolsa. Ni na ovom albumu to se nije promijenilo, već su uz pomoć novog producenta Matthew Scotta malo modernizirali svoj zvuk, a da pritom nisu dirali u srž njihovog glazbenog izričaja, što je dovelo do odlične kombinacije modernih semplova, loopova i dr. s klasičnim instrumentima, koje i inače JACK često koriste, kao što su violina ili viola.

Uz goste kao što su KIRK LAKE ili DAN FANTE (sin američkog novelista JOHNa FANTEa, velikog Anthonyevog uzora), Anthony i ekipa i ovaj su put napravili prekrasnu zbirku epskih balada (najkraća pjesma traje 4:12, a najduža 10:07). Početna, i naslovna, pjesma "The End Of The Way It's Always Been" (u kojoj sudjeluje spomenuti Kirk Lake) podsjeća na "... of Lights" s odličnog "Pioneer Soundtracks", druga semplirana i neobično dinamična za JACK opus "The Emperor Of New London" plijeni svojim ritmom i textom, "Sleeping Makes me Thirsty" bi više odgovarala JACQUES opusu (Anthonyevom side projectu, o kojem ćemo nadam se uskoro i na Terapiji jer spremaju novi album!), što glazbom što textom ("Waking Up is a lot like dying / it can't be stopped but we're still trying"), dok album zatvara tipična JACK desetominutna balada "No North Left".

Uz glazbu, na cdu postoji i osamminutni film Rhodria Thomasa, sa snimanja materijala za ovaj album.

Kao ni njegovi prethodnici, ni ovaj album (nažalost) neće doživjeti planetarnu popularnost, no njegova kompaktnost i ljepota pjesama, mogla bi nekim "veličinama" pomrsiti račune na kraju godine kad se budu zbrajali rezultati. Bar što se mene tiče!

JACK - The Emperor of New London

Hush my child
By morning it's all over
That last century
is just smoke
beyond my shoulder
I'm so fucking high
Death wouldn't dare interrupt me now
Each familiar face in the evening news obituary
is just the baby teeth in the smile
on the face of this new century
Let's drive
anywhere you want
down here it's the same country
in name only
The revolution happened
we didn't even stir in our sleep
they took it out on their own kind
on their own streets
I am a movement
I am not a school
I breed amphibians
Buy and sell Warhol
I am the 'and' in Tolstoy's 'war and peace'
I am so fucking high....
You know why they call me ugly?
It's 'cos I run faster than beauty
Undress for me in a room by the docks overlooking Nasa
i'll cue the moon above the skyline
engineer the light upon the water
As the votes pour in from Mobassa to Budapest
Sing to me baby,
'One more time'
'baby, I'm tougher than the rest'
Read to me my novels
quote me my promises
tied to the light from the tv screen
I will adopt my own children
I will bury our queen
I am hurt without pain
price without a value
a window in the sun
the despair inside the shadow
I am so fucking high
death wouldn't dare interrupt me now...
