Millennium

Millennium (1993)

千年伝説

横尾忠則のアルバムジャケットがまず目を引くこのアルバム。
ストリート色の濃かった前作とはうってかわってEWFオリジナルのサウンドに近いアルバムだよね。

これぞEarth,Wind & Fireという曲とともにワールドミュージック、ジャズ、ブルースの要素を取り入れたものもあり、
バラエティーに富んだ内容。

Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums部門で最高位8位を記録。

シングルカットされた3曲は大ヒットとはいかなかったが、それぞれが個性的な素敵な曲。

”Sunday Morning”,”Spend the Night","Two Hearts"

新メンバーのFreddie Ravelが大活躍してるし、
Philip BaileyMaurice Whiteの美しいハーモニーも複数の曲で楽しめるよ!

Princeをフューチャーした”Super Hiro"はやっぱりわくわくしちゃうよね!

こんばんわ!
EWFのアルバムは全部大好きなのだけど、
このアルバムは得に大好き^^ 曲のアレンジがブラジリアンのものが多くて、聴けば聴くほどに心地良い^^ 歌詞も曲もとってもムーディーでセクシー。新しいEWFを感じさせましたよね^^

Kim様>バラエティーには富んでいるけど、それでもEWFっぽい音ですよね!このアルバムではメロディアスなものが特に好きです!
Posted by kaolu at 2009年07月27日 18:25
私もこのアルバム大好きです!
Sunday Morningの間奏部分にSerpentine Fireのイントロ部分が使われていたり、The "L" Wordのイントロ部分にShininng Starの出だしの部分が使われていたり、EWF自身が遊び心&過去の作品へのリスペクトを持って作ったアルバムではないかと思います。

rosemama様>そういえばそうですよね!過去のヒットメロディーが間に見え隠れするとなんかうきうきした得したような気になってました。
