En 2012, Grimes explosait avec son troisième album 'Visions', collage psychédélique d'influences musicales multiples. Devenue véritable phénomène grâce à son style complètement barré et à une musique résolument novatrice, la jeune Canadienne devint en quelques mois une des artistes les plus suivies et les courues des festivals. C'est donc peu dire que son nouvel album était (très) attendu !
Enregistré principalement chez elle à Los Angeles, 'Art Angels' a été écrit et enregistré entièrement par Grimes comme à son habitude. Elle y joue du piano, de la guitare et du violon, poursuivant ainsi son évolution en tant que musicienne et productrice pour son album le plus ambitieux à ce jour. Et le plus pop ! Jamais avare d'expérimentations, la jeune femme sort des sentiers battus électroniques qu'elle avait elle-même tracés jusqu'ici et se convertit à des sonorités bien plus pop sur ces 14 nouveaux titres.
Le premier single 'Flesh without Blood', véritable odyssée rock'n'roll oscillant entre un univers pop haut en couleurs et un monde plus glauque et gothique donne la couleur d'entrée. La jeune femme brasse ses influences éclectiques avec brio et sans aucune limite pour un résultat pop implacable. Et ce ne sont pas les featurings inattendus de la chanteuse soul américaine Janelle Monáe sur 'Venus Fly' ou encore de la rappeuse taïwanaise Aristophanes sur 'SCREAM' (qui n'est pas sans rappeler les grandes heures de M.I.A. ) qui indiqueront le contraire. Le quatrième album de Grimes est bientôt là et il force une nouvelle fois l'admiration !

I am upgrading Grimes "Art Angels" CD to 5-stars - the Mp3 version still deserves 4 stars IMO. This is probably the first time I've bought an Mp3 AND CD album (couldn't help it - I just couldn't wait!). Yet the CD-Version has proven to be WAY better than the Amazon Mp3. While it is still heavily compressed, it does not clip horribly like the Mp3's did. The worst track, "Flesh Without Blood" came up clean (see attached image). In addition, the original release of "Realiti" is on the CD, which is one of my favorite Grimes tracks. So, not only does the CD sound better, I've got one more track to love.
I'll pretend that Claire AKA Grimes heard my plea for good fidelity and tweaked the CD release just in time. Thanks!
I am now wondering if Amazon, when ripping Mp3s applies additional compression that is NOT needed in this day and age. Maybe this was a freak accident. Lesson learned - even though there are plenty of clipped CDs out there, I'll avoid buying Mp3s in the future.
Compared to her other work, this new album is way more accessible through and through, despite the fact that I agree with one review site's assessment that this album is like listening to the radio-every track seems very different from the last. It makes the album a bit of a wanderfest - like Grimes couldn't decide on a direction for the sound to go. Or perhaps she was ready to show off her apparently vast range.
The thread that holds this thing together seems to come from the lyrical side. Grimes seems more confident in her voice and lyrics than before, bringing them front and center. She sounds sickly sweet at moments, lovely at others, usually bright and cheery, but lyrical themes suggest a blend of humor, satire, love, anti-pop or even sadness. She asserts in cheeky rebellion that "I'll never be your dream girl", or hopelessly that "I could tell you a truth or a lie . . . I could tell you people are good in the end - why, why would I?". She chants like a cheerleader when she says "b-e-h-a-v-e nevermore / you gave up being good when you declared a state of war . . . / sometimes people say I'm a big time bomb". Not really the lyrics of a woman trying to stand on stage with today's pop princesses.
Certainly it is no Visions, with its typically darkly layered sounds and Claire's withdrawn and sometimes hard to decipher voice, and in many ways that is a good thing. Like Radiohead, in a way, she is clearly one to try and re-invent her sound on each album, and I truly hope she keeps pushing the envelope and stirring her own sound. Art Angels is full of cool sounds and surprises. It is an album that I think is going to grow on me, and which I will probably ultimately listen to more than Visions. Visions was brilliant, but it is hard to say that all its tracks had good "hooks". This work is a lot catchier.
The Mp3 album loses a star for the following reasons. While I was pleasantly surprised to see that "Realiti" made it onto the track list, the re-mixed version IMO is horrible! It sounds totally out of place and uninspired to me in this version, with slower pacing and an odd reverb and so on. I LOVED the track on YouTube, hopefully that variant comes on the CD.
The second reason is bigger - this album is horribly overcompressed - every track I've checked thus far clips from start to finish. Do you hear that glaring, piercing midrange and treble? Do you hear static pops and clicks? Notice how "etched" the album seems, particularly with tracks like "Flesh Without Blood"? That is the contribution of too much dynamic compression.
Claire / Grimes - If you ever even read this stuff, PLEASE tell whoever finalizes this stuff to stop ruining fidelity with too much compression - your music is gorgeous and your fans want to hear it like you heard it!
Fans should expect clean, pop songs similar to "Genesis" but with more tinkering and attention to detail.
You won't hear songs similar to "Oblivion" which are crude and very underground while being catchy.
Each song is it's own world, and each song features a detailed illustration drawn by Grimes herself.
The Compact Disc version of the album features a bonus version of "Realiti" featured in the music video.
The version in the middle of the album is slicker and produced very well.
I really like this album. Grimes is getting better with each release. The music is very upbeat and fun to listen too.
If I could I'd recommend this music be Harley Quinn's theme music they would go perfect together.
