商品の紹介
Rolling Stone - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The U.K. art rockers have a nice time messing with history -- their 'House of the Rising Sun' is a minimalist chamber rumble, with singer-guitarist Joe Newman adding his own poetry to the original." NME (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he playful, inventive musicality that saw songs like `Fitzpleasure' become live favourites is intact. `Hit Me Like That Snare' is that moment, with its punk-cut drumming, layers of distortion and vocal origami folds from frontman Joe Newman." Paste (magazine) - "The trio's signature, folktronic sound is placed on the backburner, and what leads is a mix of redolent, cabin-fever creations -- hymnal, with a touch of pastoral."

A heady and sometimes capricious piece of work that vacillates between pastoral folk, classical crossover, proto-punk, and progressive rock, the Mercury Prize-winning trio's third LP is never clear about its overall intentions. The same could be said about Alt-J's two previous albums as well, but Relaxer is a thornier beast than either of them, carefully concealing its myriad barbs beneath bucolic washes of meticulously forged comeliness. Bookended by what are for all intents and purposes a pair of augmented English folk ballads, the first ("3WW") a patient, swoon-worthy pagan love song, and the second ("Pleader") an impossibly lush, choir-led anthem/hymn inspired by mining in 19th century Wales, Relaxer is aptly named, as between those two cuts lies a swath of idyllic sonic farmland that yields fruits both honeyed and acrid. Only the nervy "In Cold Blood" and the cringe-worthy, Velvet Underground-aping misfire "Hit Me Like That Snare" hint at the flashy, decisive indie rock posturing of past pleasures like "Left Hand Free" and "Dissolve Me." As per usual, Alt-J's lyrics remain elliptical, with frontman Joe Newman espousing a narrative persona that's both arthouse Dickensian villain and boarding school poet -- that lines like "Well that smell of sex, good like burning wood" and "I just want to love you in my own language" manage to elucidate their contrasting amorous perspectives within the same song is notable. Clocking in at just under 40 minutes, the album's dizzying stylistic shifts and offbeat arrangements are rendered refreshingly palatable, and even when the band's artistic hubris is drawn front and center, as it is on the aforementioned "Hit Me Like That Snare" and a spectral, almost completely rewritten version of "House of the Rising Sun," there's usually enough craftsmanship on hand to offset the overall air of importance. ~ James Christopher Monger

レビュー
  • 〈ポスト・レディオヘッド〉の最右翼が放った3作目。馴染みのチャーリー・アンドリューとのタッグで仕上げたサウンドは、マリカ・ハックマンの客演曲ほか、どれも奇妙でグロテスクなのにリピート不可避の魔力を秘めている。特に日本語が飛び交う"Hit Me Like That Snare"はキャリア最高峰の珍名曲。ジャケのモチーフはプレステのソフトらしく、前作にも奈良をテーマにした曲があったし、もう日本に住んじゃいなよ!
