Editors’ Notes

Minor Love is former Moldy Peaches leader Adam Green’s sixth solo album. (The success of Juno further exposed the Peaches’ track “Anyone Else But You.”)  Whether Green is growing up or acting out is up for debate. Like his musical hero Lou Reed, Green relishes a blunt approach and the ability to make others nervous. He played most of the instruments on this solo album and there’s a sparse clarity that allows his monotone vocals to make a greater impact. “I’ve been too awful to ever be thoughtful,” he admits on the opening cut “Breaking Locks,” and from there it’s an uncomfortable romp through his sins and desires. “Goblin” adds a Bo Diddley pound that sounds like it was discovered on a Caribbean vacation while listening to Jonathan Richman albums. “What Makes Him Act So Bad” has a sly smile to its slink. “Boss Inside” is an acoustic lament that recalls David Ackles. “Castles and Tassles” floats like a mid-‘70s AM Radio singer-songwriter hit. The attitude may be punk, but the music is mostly flat-footed folk, except in that rare moment of bargain-basement feedback (“Oh Shucks”).

Customer Reviews

Does Not Disappoint..

Yet another great album by Adam! There is nothing I don't like about his music from his deep voice to his entertaining, clever lyrics to his delightful musical compositions. There is no one else like him around today, which is a real feat in a music industry full of copycats. People like to hate on him and say his lyrics are nonsense and sometime 'vulgar', but that's only because they're too narrow minded to give him a chance. Putting his sometimes crazy lyrics with a classical sound is what makes his music entertaining and great while sounding modern at the same time, so you definitely can't knock him for it. My only regret is not finding out about him earlier, because I love listening to him so much!!

Lou Reed's grandson?

Possibly. Adam must write three songs a day. I love What Makes Him Act So Bad. This is Adam's best release to date and if you noticed, he sort of sounds like someone and by a look at the cover you can tell he wears that influence on his sleeve. Literally!!! I dug the Peaches and I dig this. Castles and Tassels is pretty cool too.

Nah

Sounds more like Leonard Cohen than Lou Reed.
