a journey well worth taking., 18 Mar. 2006
You will only know how good this record is after the 5th or 6th listen.
The lyrics are superb.The melodies are strong. The sound reminds me of Peter Gabriel's 'So' crossed with classic Nick Drake. Imagine Leonard Cohen or Smog produced by Eno!
Adey's songs are about moving, changing and trying to find peace of mind. Last remark is a seminal love song wrought with honesty and conviction. The Lost Boat Song is a sea shanty. Evening of the day could have been written a century ago.
All things Real is superb on headphones. The voice is unprocessed and up close - The instruments sound old and fit the song structures perfectly.
This CD is a real find.
There are many twist and turns along the way - its a journey well worth taking.
