‘Love And Other Planets’ LP

Riding the wave of the soulful male solo artist, Adem comes out on top, outstripping the likes of Jack Johnson and James Blunt (that’s Cockney Rhyming slang, you know) simply with the level of his talent. Employing the bluesy Jamie Cullum type vocals with a tender, country acoustic backdrop, Adem’s ‘Love And Other Planets’ LP focuses on The Big L when others are afraid to – they all seem content to whine. Adem unzips the heart and has a good dig in there, to scoop out every emotion he can find; and I’d say he had the right idea. Isn’t that what music is about? His album is honest and simply beautiful. Not bad for a mono-aural Londoner.
