Weather you know Adam Green's music or not, this is the cd to buy! This is his best album yet. A+ + +! He is a lyrical genius and his songs just keep getting better. I especially like the keyboards on this album, it add a special touch to a sound that was already wonderful. Check this album out, you wont be disappointed.

to love Adam Green... If you are familiar with Adam Green and his musical style, it's not too hard to understand why you might be skeptical to blast his album in your parents house or sing his tunes on the bus, unless you were seeking out quizzical glances and stifled chuckles. And Gemstones, in that respect, is no different (Carolina, it seems, drops red bricks from her vagina and still has a boyfriend, whom she probably should leave...that sort of thing). You'll gasp and chortle and sometimes laugh loud and long and somewhat ashamedly. Then, of course, you'll sigh and swoon and sing and dance and melt and get fired up and be calmed down and do all of those things that you do, when you're listening to the sometimes nonsensical and sometimes too meaningful words of this album. Adam Green's mind still works in the same twisty bendy sort of way. What is different, and what makes Gemstones so unbelievably good, is the music itself. It's Green's third album, and it leaves me wondering what he's going to do next. His first solo effort, Garfield, (after the breakup of garage-y antifolk band, The Moldy Peaches) was preciously lo-fi, with stumbling instrumental work, computer noise, feedback. The second, Friends of Mine, is crooner style, with sweeping string arrangements, weepy torch songs, waltzy rock songs. Once again he redefines himself with Gemstones, a gritty, bluesy, rockabilly, Beatles and Stones-y-type tribute with a Wurlitzer. You all should check it out. It's a good time.

Gemstones is Adam Green's third album, and with each release he seems to be getting better, and better. Gemstones is filled with catchy tunes that your ears will love! I recommend anybody who enjoys good, fun music to buy this.
