Download Americana by The Offspring PDF

By The Offspring

Очередная книга для любителей поиграть на нервах у родителей, для девочек во дворе, и так просто.. для себя...
Представлять вам группу The Offspring я не стану - нет смысла. У меня даже мысли в голову не пробираются о том, что кто-то может не знать этих музыкантов и тем более их альбом Americana, вышедший в 1998 году.
Альбом буквально за считаные мгновения стал супер-успешным. Кстати, он немного отличался (да и отличается теперь) от их остальных альбомов. Здесь они стебали уже не только хэви-метал, но и все музыкальные стили, которые им только удалось воспроизвести. В текстах появился какой-то юмор, но в большинстве своём они оставались такими же серьёзными и трагичными. Offspring'и производили впечатление весьма наивных провинциальных музыкантов, которые даже не понимают, насколько смешно они звучат. За это их и полюбило новое поколение реальных провинциальных подростков, звучавших так же смешно и мысливших столь же серьёзно.

Как и всегда партии голоса и гитары + табы...


1. have you
2. beginning on the sunlight
three. lovely fly
four. the youngsters are usually not all right
five. emotions
6. She's bought matters
7. Walla walla
eight. the top of the road
nine. No breaks
10. Why do not you get a job?
11. Americana
12. Pay the fellow
