Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are few musicians on the modern scene as vital, as ingenious, and as off-the-wall creative as is Barry Adamson. Its really a pity he's not better known in North America. I've been following his musical odyssey for quite a while now, and with the issue of Stranger On The Sofa its plain that Adamson is not running out of ideas. One spin in the CD changer and you will find yourself on yet another strange musical journey through the world of Barry Adamson.

It took me several listens to get to like this as much as I do some of his earlier CDs like Soul Murder, but now I'm finding it hard to put away.

The first reviewer was entranced by Theresa Green. While that is an excellent song, the one that mesmerizes me is the baleful Inside Of Your Head. What a piece of music! Other favorites are the relentless Who Killed Big Bird?, the dream-like The Sorrow And the Pity, the high-energy You Sold Your Dreams, the mysterious Deja Morte, and the trance-inducing Dissemble.

There are a couple of weak cuts here, but overall Stranger On The Sofa is an excellent album and should be in the collections of everyone who considers themselves musically adventurous. Listen and hear what I am writing about!

4pm. sunny hollywood.

just got this at amoeba's in hollywood and i was awstruck by this song. 'THERESA GREEN'. i kept listening to it over and over again . . . and the moods this song provokes

are serpentine and viseral. the melody with what sounds like a piano or guitar sound is

so refreshing, a kind of 'sigh-sound'. i kept sighing . . . so internal that it leaves me highly emotional, complete, 'el final' of what

i am up to now. if i were to die tomorrow, with all the songs that have gone through-me-head i would have been satisfyed as a human being! ONTOLOGICAL! thank you sir for creating such beautiful auras of sound. -SUNofMAN
