5.0 out of 5 stars A great new talent to watch out for!, 11 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Homesongs (Audio CD)
This is the first solo album by Adem, who is one third of critically aclaimed band FRIDGE. The music is much more accesible than FRIDGE primarily due to the fact that Adem now sings, with a voice that at times has been compared with a number of different artists from Bono to Jeff Buckley. The music is stripped down acoustic based with a whole range of other instruments going on in the background.
It opens with Statued a slow acoustic number which sets the tone for the album. Ringing in my ear picks up the pace and then Gone Away and Cut slow it back down.
Theses are your friends is the obvious single choice and comes across as a fantastic rock epic which is impressive considering the acoustic approach.
Everything you need has a fantastically upbeat chorus and Long drive home has some more sumptuios vocals all over it.
Pillow is one of those tracks people will either love or hate. I love it Adem's vocals accompanied only by an autoharp create one of the most beautiful and brave tracks I have ever heard on a debut album. One in a million takes us back into familiar territory with as close to a rock track as you'll get from such an original artist. Finally we finish with There will always be which starts sounding as a homage to Bjork and finishes telling us "there will always be room at my table for you" Lets hope there is enough room for plenty more music of this calabre.
