从我听音乐开始到现在,我听过很多种音乐风格的大师的演出,无论是古典还是爵士或是金属。他们当中有一些已经不在世,声音已经成为了世人公认的经典绝唱。但是我必须说,我听过的最好的演出,就是今天我们要介绍的这个乐队,梦剧院(Dream Theater,简称DT)的演出。

这是一个金属界的光荣团队,乐队的吉他手John Petrucci在2001年获邀参加只有世界顶尖吉他手才能参加的G3演出,与Joe Satriani及Steve Vai同台;乐队的鼓手Mike Portnoy31岁时就进入摇滚鼓界名人堂,数人键盘手都技法高超,现任键盘手Jordan Rudess曾经与John Petrucci合作过一张不插电的专辑,被誉为这个世界的吉他手和键盘手必须听的五张专辑之一,YAMAHA为乐队贝斯手John Myung定做的六弦贝斯永远是场上的亮点,作为这个世界的顶尖贝斯手之一,他一直在挑战BASS的可能性。

而这张EP《A Changes Of Seasons》是金属很好的入门曲,如果你不听金属就把金属比喻成为粗鄙,狂暴的音乐,DT的音乐立刻会让你感到羞愧,23分钟的一曲变换的季节共分七章,歌词由鼓手Mike Portnoy创作,选自他纪念他过世母亲的诗句,这些诗被穿插在七章的音乐中,就像一部歌剧,你能听到哀婉安静的诉说,你也能听到狂风暴雨般的怒号,美感十足。也向人展现了金属这种风格在诠释感情上的多种可能性。

最后再说说我和这首歌之间的小故事吧,在我18岁那年我高考落榜,失恋,当一切不顺心的事向我袭来时,我开始从极端音乐中发泄我的情绪,于是开始大规模的听重金属,当我听到这首歌里面的几句话,为之一振,我也把它分享给你们,如果你们中谁和我一样情绪低落,希望他能治愈你,让你找到向前奋斗的勇气。

Seasons change, and so can I/季节能变换,我也会改变
Hold on Boy/挺住,小伙子
No time to cry/没时间再哭了
Untie these strings/解开那些羁绊
I’m climbing down/我会爬出来
I won’t let them push me away/不会让他们把我推走

A Change of Seasons
Dream Theater

Music: Dream Theater
Lyrics: Mike Portnoy

<I. The Crimson Sunrise>

Instrumental

<II. Innocence>

I remember a time
My frail, virgin mind
Watched the crimson sunrise
Imagined what it might find
Life was filled with wonder
I felt the warm wind blow
I must explore the boundaries
Transcend the depth of winter’s snow

Innocence caressing me
I never felt so young before
There was so much life in me
Still I longed to search for more

But those days are gone now
Changed like a leaf on a tree
Blown away forever
Into the cool autumn breeze
The snow has now fallen
And my sun’s not so bright
I struggle to hold on
With the last of my might

In my den of inequity
Viciousness and subtlety
Struggle to ease the pain
Struggle to find the same

Ignorance surrounding me
I’ve never been so filled with fear
All my life’s been drained from me
The end is drawing near…

<III. Carpe Diem>

“Carpe diem
Seize the day”

I’ll always remember
The chill of November
The news of the fall
The sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall
Ticking away
“Seize the Day”
I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around
Hear the sounds
Cherish your life
While you’re still around

(“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
(Old Time is still a-flying;)
(And this same flower that smiles today)
(Tomorrow will be dying”)

We can learn
From the past
But those days
Are gone
We can hope
For the future
But there might not be one

The words stuck in my mind
Alive from what I’ve learned
I have to seize the day
To home I returned

Preparing for her flight
I held with all my might
Fearing my deepest fright
She walked into the night
She turned for one last look
She looked me in the eye
I said, “I Love You…
Good-bye”

(“It’s the most awful thing you’ll ever hear”)
(“If you’re lying to me…”)
(“Oh, you dearly love her”)
(“…just have to leave…)
(All our lives”)
(“Seize the day!”)
(“Something happened”)
(“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”)
(“She was killed”)

<IV. The Darkest of Winters>

Instrumental

<V. Another World>

So far or so it seems
All is lost
With nothing fulfilled
Off the pages and the
T.V. screen
Another world
Where nothing’s true

Tripping through
The life fantastic
Lose a step
And never get up
Left alone
With a cold blank stare
I feel like giving up

I was blinded by a paradise
Utopia high in the sky
A dream that only drowned me
Deep in sorrow, wondering why

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what
Don’t let him be
Let’s feed upon his misery
Then string him up for all the world to see

I’m sick of all
Your hypocrites
Holding me at bay
And I don’t need
Your sympathy
To get me through the day

Seasons change and so can I
Hold on Boy
No time to cry
Untie these strings
I’m climbing down
I won’t let them push me away

Oh come let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what
Don’t let him be
Let’s feed upon
His misery
Now it’s time for them
To deal with me

<VI. The Inevitable Summer>

Instrumental

<VII. The Crimson Sunset>

I’m much wiser now
A lifetime of memories
Run though my head
They taught me how
For better or worse
Alive or dead
I realize
There’s no turning back
Life goes on
The offbeaten track

I sit down with my son
Set to see the Crimson Sunset
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
Many years have come and gone
I’ve lived my life, but now must move on
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
He’s my only one
Now that my time has come
Now that my life is done
We look into the sun
“Seize the day
And don’t you cry
Now it’s time
To say good-bye
Even though
I’ll be gone
I will live on
Live on”
