All Music Guide - Jason MacNeil
A project of Steven Adams of the Broken Family Band, the Singing Adams is another piece of work that depends on simple, slick-free production and a general cozy, folksy arrangement. A perfect example of this is "Queen of the House." Lasting only a little over a minute, the track is a barren acoustic tune that could have been recorded in a living room. Think of a sullen James Yorkston and the song becomes clearer. "Minus Nine," however, is a fun, quirky acoustic folk-pop nugget that saunters along in the vein of Badly Drawn Boy or the Hidden Cameras.

A project of Steven Adams of the Broken Family Band, the Singing Adams is another piece of work that depends on simple, slick-free production and a general cozy, folksy arrangement. A perfect example of this is "Queen of the House." Lasting only a little over a minute, the track is a barren acoustic tune that could have been recorded in a living room. Think of a sullen James Yorkston and the song becomes clearer. "Minus Nine," however, is a fun, quirky acoustic folk-pop nugget that saunters along in the vein of Badly Drawn Boy or the Hidden Cameras. Adams also resembles James Blunt to some extent, particularly on the reflective "Ship," a stellar singer/songwriter sort of track accented by an accordion. "I Can Do Nothing" brings out the electric side to the band with a wall of guitar that builds, supporting the slightly uptempo track. Meanwhile, "The Mayor" picks things up again acoustically with a rather bizarre Appalachia-meets-Orient instrumental that leads into "New Southgate Love Song," a warm toe-tapper that speaks of holding back urges. Another pleaser -- and possibly the highlight, aside from the tender "Long Way Home Mistake" -- is "You and Me," which gradually finds its groove but is well worth the wait. The closing tracks are also quite pleasing, as "Starsign" features some very eerie but appealing harmonies accompanied by acoustic guitar, organ, and tambourine.
