As a avid fan of Swervedriver I was pleased to hear singer-songwriter Adam Franklin exploring new areas in his sound on his solo debut under his new monikor, Toshack Highway. Psychedelic, textured, space rock is not out of place in Franklin's past catalog with Swervedriver. With Toshack Highway Franklin fine tunes his gift for writing melodic space sculptures that bloom. Needless to say there is more going on here that you first hear. With repeated listens the finely crafted layers emerge to create amazing soundscapes of various sounds and melodies all playing off one another. A highly recommended headphone disc for those of you that enjoy Swervedriver's softer moments. Surely to please those that truly understand the magical, musical complexities that Adam Franklin has created over the years. Like Swervedriver, Toshack Highway will no doubt be one of the most overlooked musical achievements of 2000.

This album has more of an ambient twist than any of Franklin's previous work, but that shouldn't put you off. It is essentially chill-out music and very rarely gets heavy. But this album is well worth checking out as it attempts various musical styles with great success (most of the time). Buy this and you won't regret it.

I got this years ago, and was let down slightly... because of the heavyness that is Swervedriver...and this sure isn't it. It's grown on me over time, as I've come to appreciate music that isn't heavy rock. It's Adam's first solo effort.
Think about all the slow, trippy Swerve songs, and you've got this album. Mellow, beautiful, emotional. It's very good. Almost like laying around all day, dreaming...that's the best way I can describe it.
Just don't expect the raging guitars of Swervedriver, and you won't be disappointed.
