5.0 out of 5 stars This man truly is the Jazz Devil 15 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Adamson LP to date, and if you don't yet own one of his records you have no idea just how good that is. I don't want to give to many comparisons, because nothing really fits, this guy is an excellent musician and moves from jazz to soul to blues to industrial to soundtrack without ever sounding contrived. Another plus is that Mr Adamson has been getting funnier and cooler with each passing record and tracks like 'can't get loose to using you''what it means' and 'Jazz Devil' are so good they were born to be classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best yet 21 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Dug this out a while ago after it had gathered dust for years. Its a masterpiece. The man has been a part of some great bands over the years (Magazine, Bad Seeds) but this rivals even some of their best work. The first side is awesome, blending David Bowie and The The beautifully, peaking with the awesome Come Hell Or High Water (the best song Matt Johnson never recorded). Its vocal heavy for Adamson, but his voice is wonderfully seedy and one does wish he had utilised it more on earlier albums. Notable other highs are Can't Get Loose and the insanely powerful Still I Rise, yet he keeps a trick up his sleeve for the end of Jesus Wept that closes the album. Try listening to the 'welcome's' on headphones without feeling strangely uncomfortable. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Soul Conversation 12 Oct 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Part of the golden era of his recording opus stretching across at least four albums. This is the moment he decided to sing and it fits in with the chime. A continuation of his big band themes; race, love, the 60's, jazz, beb bop, cool all wrapped in an Otto Preminger fur coat and dangling a cigarrete holder between its varnished nails.

Not as virulent as Oedipus, he holds the notes before launching into pure brass, whilst pumping the beats of the dispossessed into the bottomless bass. Barry floated on clouds of THC to chisel his psyche, then bring Barry White to John Barry in long drawn out musical converstations.

Take a listen, this was the last piece of continous soul he constructed.
