Paul Fisher對【臨暗】的評論

  或許「音樂無國界」這樣的說法已經有點陳腐且被過度使用了,然而聽過「生祥與瓦窯坑3」的新作【臨暗】後,我卻很難不同意這句話仍能通用於此。他們的音樂並非演奏音樂,而是以辭意為重、詩意流竄的聲音。生祥所唱的,我一個字也聽不懂,但我可以聽見他聲音中豐富的熱情,他所唱的都是他堅定而清晰的信仰。他們音樂中擁有跨越疆界的元素,那正是曲曲美妙動聽的旋律,在我聽完很久後依然深深刻印在腦海裡。隨著音樂唱時,我甚至想要模仿這些聲音,然而卻總無法如願。異於西方、百分之百的亞洲聲響,「生祥與瓦窯坑3」自信地找到認同。

  感謝「生祥與瓦窯坑3」創造出如此精采的音樂,向他們致敬。

原文

Perhaps it's an overused cliche that music is the universal language. Nevertheless, listening to the music of Sheng Xiang and Water 3 it's hard to disagree with this notion. Theirs isn't instrumental music, this is music where the words matter. I can't understand a word Sheng Xiang is singing, but I can hear the passion in his voice. These are words that he clearly believes. The universal bit of the music is those wonderful melodies. Long after I've listened they remain in my head. I even sing along in words probably completely different to the correct ones, yet sort of familiar if not similar. And yet, it all feels definitely Asian, not Western, there's a proud sense of identity.
Sheng Xiang and Water 3, respect and thanks for the brilliant music.
