about

作為Mr Graceless的首張專輯,《The Tree Ever Green》講述了他們的少年心氣,一段和這個時代記憶有關的少年之聲。在這張專輯裡,記錄的不僅僅是他們的音樂,也是對那段歲月的告別。整張專輯呈現出Mr.Graceless慣有的對獨立搖滾的堅持和對優美旋律的偏愛,11首伴隨著樂隊成長的歌一一收入專輯,它們記錄了“先生們”所有的青蔥時光。沒有嘩眾取寵的炫耀,沒有繁複冗長的華章,九龍慵懶緊湊的鼓點、元帥溫柔頹靡的貝斯線與秋爽時而瘋狂時而內斂的吉他聲悅耳的結合在一起,雙主唱的配置和奇妙的三人和聲也是他們音樂的特點之一。《My Channel》的自戀,《Lovely Face》的抒情,《Mr. Li》的戲謔,《License to Capture》的自嘲,《溫暖地平線》的陽光,《墜落》的沉醉,《Throw That Block》的衝動,所有舊時的情緒全部留在這張專輯裡,示意對少年時代的蓋棺定論揮手作別。
此外,北京奧運會開幕式及張藝謀電影音樂的錄音監理陳雨黎悉心操刀了專輯錄音與後期製作,這是這張專輯製作水準的保證。他同時也是嘎調首張專輯的製作人,對於音場的掌控力完美表現了Mr Graceless的溫暖悅耳的音樂特質和極強的可聽性。
少年將死,樹木則永世常青。

Mr.Graceless’ album “The Tree Ever Green” is the account of their youth’s mood, a part of this era’s memory of the voice of youth. This record is not merely their music it is their farewell to years past. The entire album presents Mr.Graceless’ habit of persistently making independent rock and roll and their partiality for graceful melody, 11 songs accompanying the band as they mature included one by one on the album—they have recorded all the verdant days of these “gentlemen.” There is no showing off to please the crowd, no onerous and longwinded philosophizing. Jiulong’s cool and compact drumbeat, Yuanshuai’s gentle and contemplative bassline combined with the sometimes crazy sometimes reserved sound of Qiushuang’s guitar creates a sweet-sounding result. Not to forget the wonderful two and three voice harmonies, another of their specialties. The longing for oneself in “My Channel”, the expression of “Lovely Face”, the banter in “Mr. Li”, the self-humor in “License to Capture”, the sunshine of “Warm Horizon", the intoxication of “Falling”, the excitement of “Throw that Block”, all the sentiments of the old days are left on this album hinting at the shutting of youth’s coffin lid and a final wave farewell.
Furthermore, the sound manager of the Beijing Olympic opening ceremonies and Zhang Yimou's movie soundtracks, Chen Yuli, devoted his talents to cutting and shaping of these recordings and postproduction. This is the promise of this album's quality. At the same time he acted as the producer for Gar concerning the perfection of their acoustics, which he has done for Mr.Graceless to achieve the warm, pleasant sound of the music's special qualities and the maximal power of the album's listening quality.
Youth will no doubt die yet the evergreen will.

Track Name: 溫暖地平線(Warm Horizon)
8. 溫暖地平線

遙遠地平線
現出太陽一般的光線
無力的語言
敗走在你濃烈的愛面前
是柔軟的瞬間
有你在身邊
是溫暖的瞬間
有你

美麗的語言
敗走在你濃烈的愛面前
是溫暖的瞬間
有你在身邊
是溫暖的瞬間
有你
Track Name: 新歌(the New)
9. 新歌

我走進黑白的房間
錯過了誘人的表演
看一部悲劇青年 祭
寫一段乏味的配樂
人們在災難前沉默
小心翼翼地被折磨
混亂中撲朔的暴風
看你的神情變木訥
*
時間總跑在荒誕的想法前
煩擾的等待卻還是坐過站
沒有人教會你如何去背叛
失戀全都變成沒用的經驗
從不關心世界是否已改變
不勞而獲是你想要的晚餐
站在樓頂你感到頭暈目眩
瘋狂的表情麻木了你的臉
*
我闖進平行的房間
丟棄你所謂的優點
智慧像謎一樣陌生
就用最直白的語言
**
二十歲之前不斷被說服著
從來沒想過到底是為什麼
不停的欺騙著自己和生活
陌生的愛勝過現實的歡樂
盛大的節日裡精心的穿著
無腦的身體裡裝滿了虛弱
所有的一切依然在發生著
疼痛的覺醒扼死了沉默
**
Track Name: Singing Sunday
