OMOTI – TOP 100!

Na rubu, a katkad i sama umjetnost!

100 omota In

U poplavi „naj“ svačega na netu, bilo je pitanje vremena kad će se pojaviti lista najboljih omota albuma.

Doduše, liste izlaze skoro pa na mjesečnoj osnovi, sa svih strana. Svatko tko nešto zna o muzici misli da je onaj pravi da ocjeni koji su albumi zaslužili da njihovi omoti dođu na listu.

Površnim razmišljanjem, brojka 100 djeluje golema. Jer ipak 100 albuma nije mala stvar.

I onda, kad se počne raščlanjivati i sastavljati kakva takva lista, očito je da je u tih prvih stotinu mjesta i te kakva gužva. Sa ovim se problemom vjerojatno i susreo kreator liste koju donosim, (udiscovermusic.com), koja je izašla pred kraj prošle godine.

Sa ove vremenske distance, ipak, jedna je od najkompetentnijih, te je stoga donosim u cijelosti.

Ozbiljnom poznavatelju muzike će se odmah učiniti nepotpuna, jer teško je objasniti odsustvo recimo omota albuma “Unklnown Pleasures”, grupe Joy Division, ako se zna što taj omot predstavlja (grafički dijagram umirućeg pulsara) i koju muziku nosi (samo-destruktivnu, mračnu) i koja je sudbina glavnog aktera Ian Curtisa (objesio se u stanu!).

Ili kako objasniti odsustvo omota albuma grupe Blue Oyster Cult, kad se zna što predstavlja, što nosi, što kaže, što simbolizira.

Isto tako, izostanak omota albuma “Tick as a Brick”, grupe Jetro Tull, koji je u originalu donesen kao dnevna novina s punim sadržajem, je bez ikakvog opravdanja.

Odsustvo Santaninh omota albuma (osim omota albuma “Abraxas”), pak upućuje na selektivni pristup, jer mogu shvatit da kreator nije čuo za recimo The 13th Floor Elevators ili The Mothers of Invention (iako skoro pa nemoguće povjeravati u to!), ali da nije čuo za ostale Santanine albume, to je ipak neka druga priča.

Na listi se našao samo jedan rad Rogera Deana, (Yes – „Fragile“), što ostavlja gorak okusa u ustima. Taj je čovjek stvorio svoj stil kojeg je razvijao na albumima grupe Yes, Osibisa, Budgie, Gravy Train ….koji su svaki za sebe mala umjetnička djela. O čemu se radi dokazuje podatak da Roger Dean redovno organizira izložbe svojih radova u prestižnim umjetničkim galerijama, na kojima većinu eksponata čine, omoti albuma!

Bilo kako bilo, da bih ispravio koliko toliko ispravio nepravdu, slučajnim odabirom donosim omote albuma koji se nisu našli na listi Top 100. Uvjeren sam da ih je još najmanje deset puta toliko ostalo van i ove liste, ali takav je život.

I na kraju, ono što nije nigdje izrekom napisano ili rečeno, što je to što čini jedan omot albuma velikim?

Bez daljnjega, kvaliteta muzike koju nosi sama ploča, ali …. ima još.
Veliki omot priča svoju priču, koja je ili dopuna onoj koju priča muzika ili opisuje muziku slikom i bojom. Veliki omot albuma je umjetničko djelo, kako izvedbom tako značenjem. (Jethro Tull – „Aqualung“)

I naposljetku, veliki omot albuma je onaj koji pola stoljeća priča priču i nikad je do kraja ne ispriča, jer svakim novim slušanjem muzike koju nosi dodaje nešto novo, kao i sama muzika.

Ili drugim riječima, veliki omot albuma je onaj koji srasta sa muzičkim djelom i tim s njime čini cjelinu.

Koliko ih je uspjelo u tome, teško je jednoznačno iznijeti, jer najprije treba do u notu poznavati muziku i sam sadržaj kojeg nosi omot, te na temelju tih spoznaja donijeti sud.

Pokušajte vi sa svojim!
