Editorial Reviews

Green is formerly one half of Moldy Peaches (with Kimya Dawson). This is his fifth solo album. His music is reminiscent of Bacharach and Brel, and he's created his own brand of playful pop while refining it with each release. He's toured with the likes of The Libertines, Badly Drawn Boy, Ben Kweller, and The Strokes. "A queasy mix of super-sharp realism, clammy surrealism, and elegant melody" - Mojo. "It always amazes me how he can express such deep meaning with such twisted humor. Adam is eccentric and down to earth, with newfound technical proficiency over a wider spectrum of styles. I love it" - Julian Casablancas, The Strokes.

From the first album, Garfield, to the release previous to this one, Jacket Full of Danger, Adam Green's music had been getting better and better, so I was rather enthusiastic about this album's release. Upon seeing the tracklisting, initially I thought it was somewhat daring that there was 20 songs, each of the songs only being around 2 minutes long. Could they all be great? In an interview, Adam Green said, in explanation, "people will just listen to things on shuffle". After hearing this album, I definitely get what he means.

'Jacket Full of Danger', worked really well as an album from start-to-finish, and is one I primarily listened to as such. If there were less tracks, I might say the same for 'Sixes and Sevens', but, in fact, it is more enjoyable to hear by just selecting certain songs here and there. It's clear that Green was really experimenting with different vocal styles and instrumentation with this album, more than ever. Just when we thought we knew what to expect, too! Calvin Johnson-meets-Jim Morrison-esque vocals, crude and witty lyrics and lo-fi techniques, yes, they're still around, but now we've got the addition of occasional gospel background singers and frequent bouncing around of genres!

There are some real quality tracks on here, like "Cannot Get Sicker", "You Get So Lucky", and "Leaky Flask", though these are just glimpses of Adam Green's potential. If Green had extended the length of such tracks and knocked away some of the others, 'Sixes and Sevens' as a whole would've been a more impressive listen.

If you're looking for something Moldy Peaches-esque, this isn't it. It's a fun and weird album, definitely worth a listen, but was different than I expected.

Adam Green is one of those musicians that won't ever be the next "big thing". You can show him to as many friends as you want, and they might think he's funny, but his music just isn't mainstream enough for the big time. Which is the exact thing that makes it good. If you're the kind of person who enjoys low-fi music that takes quite a few listens to get into, but eventually gives off a very comforting, warm vibe when you listen to it, Adam Green is the musician for you... Maybe.

Truth be told, Adam Green isnt't a fantastic musician. He plays his guitar alright for his songs, but you won't see any amazing guitar work here. He has a fantastic sounding voice, but his singing capabilities are also limited. His lyrics are all nonsensical and could be written by someone 8 years of age. So what's the appeal? If this guy really has no natural "amazing" talent, why does he has a record label? Why is he (somewhat) famous? When it comes down to it, Adam Green simply has a unique vibe he gives off which translates into his music, lyrics, and guitar playing. You could be a BETTER singer than Green, but his natural singing style just has such an appeal. He is an appealing character, and he makes appealing music. Even his odd, childish lyrics turn out to be somewhat brilliant. Sure, a child could write similiar nonesense type lyrics, but they wont be nearly as...well...entertaining. Green knows how to play off his own personality and make it into art.

As for this album, it's full of ups and downs. At 20 tracks in length, it doesnt grow tired, but sometimes lacks the standout track thats needed.

At first I was underwhelmed, but now this sucker has totally gone viral in my mind, such that I need to listen to it three times a day.
