Because there isn't any year in the life that fails to bring us more than a few surprises, some great, some weird, with a few low points for good measure, you just never know what's coming up next, but maybe that's OK.  Those who learn from history are doomed to be looking for the next bright spot and being glad to say they were there when it happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars A major grower 20 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
I had this strongly recommended and on first couple of listens started to question my mates sanity, then the tunes begin to creep into your soul and you are hooked. Give it time and Hope and Adams could become a major part of your listening experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding! 24 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wheat take a delightful blend of indie, rock and mellow-ness and make it something truly special. It kind of sounds like a happy Radiohead at times. Any fan of chilling out should own at least one copy of this album. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars 8 Years and counting...still a beautiful memory 25 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is so underated, in my opinion one the greatest lo-fi albums of the 1990's and even blossoming into the 2000's. For it's place and meaning, music and every day freshness it is remarkable. Even now in 2007 whenever I pop the CD in and sit in my favorite chair, I close my eyes and drift away in the music and words. The songs are sharp, short and sweet and I can leave all my troubles at the door. Stand out tracks are the beautiful 'Who's the one', the popular 'Don't I hold You'. The beauty of this album is somebody will discover a gem for themselves and there are many. Very floating harmonies and music I could only compare to Sigur Ros but noticeably much shorter in terms of length. This album is a forgotten / undiscovered masterpiece which I will long be playing into the NEXT decade.

This was a great find for me, great songs reminiscent of Sparklehorse, Pavement and the likes. Apparently there's more of a buzz about them in the UK than in their homeland of the States, according to the City Slang website. An album well worth investigating! (For some reason the track order on the Amazon listing is completely different from the CD I bought here in France?!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Blimming fabulous 24 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Don't I Hold You on the radio and after that I was desperate to buy the album. Hope and Adams is one of the best albums I have heard in a long time. And Someone With Strengths makes me want to cry, whilst No One Ever Told Me makes me happy. An album full of emotion that everybody should buy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointed 7 Feb 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Let me down after several exceptional Amazon reviews. There is a certain charm to be found on this record and the guitars are certianly well structured and support the songs well. However there are only 4-5 descent songs on here?
