... gut ...

Mit dem Spaceship auf Tauchstation im Ozean. Instrumentales Stück, das etliche Register zieht. Beachtlich.

*****
Superschickes Unterwasser-Intro. Danach kommt etwas mehr Musik dazu. Schöne, sanfte Bassline, dazu Streicher und natürlich massig Synthis. 4.5+
***
Ein sehr lanweiliges Instrumental.
***
Schwächstes Stück der CD!!! 3++
****
Ein ruhiges Instrumental, welches mich aber nicht so anspricht. 4*=.
****
Nach nunmehr 30 Jahren ist gerade dieses Stück umso bemerkenswerter, wenn man bedenkt, welche technischen Möglichkeiten damals erst zur Verfügung standen, in Summe bleibt es aber trotzdem eines der schwächeren Stücke auf OOTB.
***
nun, jean michel jarre's "oxygene" war bereits 1 jahr vorher, und er holte "aus den damals möglichen" wesentlich mehr heraus..
pure einöde!
**
Schwaches, nicht wirklich überzeugendes Instrumental. Für mich der schwächste Titel auf "Out of the Blue"
****
4,5.
*****
Jeff Lynne ist einer der Musiker, die es lange Zeit vor Sounds wie Techno Trance verstanden, den Hörer in andere Klangdimensionen zu katapultieren. The Whale ist ein schönes Beispiel dafür.

Für die Höchstpunktzahl reicht es aber nicht ganz. Ich bevorzuge doch eher die fetzigen, sowie balladesken Sachen von E.L.O.
*****
Gut
****
... sehr gute 4
*****
Ich mag es, dieses Instrumental, sorgt ein wenig für Abwechslung auf dem Album.
*****
Gut gemachtes Instrumental mit zahlreichen Spezialeffekten
****
Ich bin ein großer Instrumental-Fan ... aber bestimmt nicht wegen 'The Whale'. 4-
***
Ich bin überhaupt kein Instrumental-Fan. Meist passen die nur im Album-Kontext. so auch dieses.
****
interessant
****
...sanfte, sphärische, wellengleiche Klänge - schön zu hören -...
****
passabel, aber mehr nich...
******
Das Erste, was mich als Kind beeindruckt hat, waren Instrumentalstücke. Was bei ELO viele nicht so wahrnehmen, ist auch bei Gesangsstücken die Dichte und Detailverliebtheit der Backing Tracks. Der Gesang war auch immer das letzte Element, welches Lynne hinzugefügt hat. Die meisten Stücke haben deswegen etwas Kinomäßiges.
The Whale ist ein beeindruckendes Beispiel für Jeffs Vorstellungskraft, wird doch mit dem Moog, anderen Synths und vielen Spezialeffekten hier eine Unterwasserwelt zum Leben erweckt, in die man förmlich eintauchen kann. Seht ihr ihn nicht vor eurem inneren Auge, den Wal, dieses majestätische Geschöpf? Hört ihr nicht den Walgesang? Fantastisch.

@remember
Nun, Jean Michel Jarre war aber sehr wohl beeindruckt. Für sein Electronica-Projekt hätte er sehr gerne mit Jeff Lynne gearbeitet. Es gibt auch ein Interview von eclipsed, in dem er sagt, dass ELO zu ihrer Zeit die Besten gewesen seien, und ihn fasziniert auch die technologische Seite von Discovery, das er im Quietus als wichtige Inspirationsquelle und Album, dass in seiner Familie rauf und runter lief, vorstellt.

Ja definitiv ein sehr detailverliebtes Instrumentalstück. Mir gefällt es gut, aber die 100 prozentige Bindung habe ich noch nicht. Vielleicht kommt die mit mehrmaligem Hören. 5 Sterne sind es aber jetzt schon locker.
