Adem – Love and Other Planets


Published May 19, 2006

What a terrible name for an album. Oh well, at least it’s more interesting than the music on it. Bland, indecisive acoustic lo-fi folk sludge riddled with half-hearted sappiness, it drifts through its forty-odd minutes with the enthusiasm of a kidney-stone sufferer on his way to the bathroom. Only You And Moon and Last Transmission From The Lost Mission offer breaks from the monotony with a little rhythmic experimentation (that doesn’t make them good songs, mind you), and the title track’s yearning vocals do betray a hint of passion. Otherwise, this is about as boring as it gets.
