Michael Weiss. Last updated September 8, Share this project. Through the emulation of this idea, Wu Wei's music is able to tap into the universal heartbeat and rhythm of the cosmos, transcending language and cultural identity to remind humanity of it's most fundamental and unifying aspects. He has spent the last seven years perfecting his attenuation to the rhythms of the natural world, creating intentional music to awaken our highest potential. He strives to combine the soul reaching sounds of ambient contemporary music with the earthy bass of futuristic world electronica.
T he power of rock and roll is a constantly amazing process. Although it is Bob Dylan who is the single most important figure in rock and roll; and although it is the Rolling Stones who are the embodiment of a rock and roll band; it is nonetheless Our Boys. The Beatles , who are the perfect product and result of everything that rock and roll means and encompasses.
Never has this been so plainly evident as on their new two-album set. The impact of it is so overwhelming that one of the ideas of the LP is to contain every part of extant Western music through the all-embracing medium of rock and roll, that such categorical and absolute statements are imperative.
Just a slightly closer look shows it to be a far more deliberate, self-conscious, pretentious, organized and structured, coherent and full, more perfect album than Sgt. Nothing could have been more ambitious than the current release: The Beatles is the history and synthesis of Western music.
And that, of course is what rock and roll is, and that is what the Beatles are. Rock and roll, the first successful art form of the McLuhan age, is a series of increasing hybrids of musical styles, starting from its basic hybrid of country and western music and black American music blues, if you will. That merger represents the distantly effected marriage of the music of England and Africa, a yin and yang that could be infinitely extended.
Not only the origin of rock and roll, but also the short history of it can be seen as a series of hybridizations, the constantly changing styles and fads, as rock assimilates every conceivable musical style folk, blues, soul, Indian; classical, psychedelic, ballad, country not only a recent process, but one that goes back to the Drifters, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, and so on. By attempting such a grandiose project with such deliberation and honesty, they have left themselves extremely vulnerable.
As usual, the personal honesty is met with an attack. The secret is that innocence is invulnerable, and those who rush too quickly for the kill, are just themselves dead. On the level of musical ignorance, I read the very first review of this record that appeared; it was in the New York Times.
You come up with only one of two answers about that reviewer: he is either deaf or he is evil. To say the Beatles are guilty of some kind of revolutionary heresy is absurd; they are being absolutely true to their identity as it has evolved through the last six years. Rock and roll has indeed become a style and a vehicle for changing the system.
As to the Beatles, it is hard to see what they are going to do next. They are so good that they not only expand the idiom, but they are also able to penetrate it and take it further. The Turtles were unable to bring it of they had to ability to parody, but not the talent to do something new with the old style and the Mothers were able to operate within a strictly circumscribed area with their usual heavy-handed satirization, a self-limiting process.
It is all open to the Beatles. It is the perfect introductory song for this set. What follows is a trip through the music of the US SR. The Beatles were always trying to get her to come out of her room to play, and this is about her.
Whatever they may feel about people who write about their songs and read things into them, it has undoubtedly affected them, eating away at their foundations and always forcing that introspection and that second thought. Part of the phenomenal talent of the Beatles is their ability to compose music that by itself carries the same message and mood as the lyrics. The lyrics and the music not only say the same thing, but are also perfectly complementary.
This comes also with the realization that rock and roll is music , not literature, and that the music is the most important aspect of it. Fun music for a fun song about fun. Who needs answers? One cannot imagine it being a song about a particular person or incident, rather a general set of incidents, a message, like a sermon, impersonally directed to everyone. The music mimics the linear, continuous line of the lead guitarist. It is interesting to note that the song opens with a piano imitating the sound of an electric guitar playing the heavily Spanish lead line well before the guitar picks up the lead.
I am willing to bet something substantial that the lead guitarist on this cut is Eric Clapton, yet another involution of the circular logic on which this song so superbly constructed as a musical piece.FOC Standard Black Vinyl LP + Album Download. $ Sold Out.
