Brilliant Fusion of Lyric and Sound

This CD is topnotch! Peter Adams masters a brilliant combination of instrumental, exploratory tracks and diverse, harmonious songs. Each of these songs is infused with his unconventional genius. It is truly like nothing else I've heard recently. Throughout the CD, Adams utilizes strings, percussion, unorthodox instruments, and "noise" samplings, weaving a symphony that, despite changes in movement, flows wonderfully from beginning to end. 1. In the Great Green Room - Sets the mood for the album. If you like this track, you will not be disappointed. 2. The Observatory - Gives the first taste of orthodox elements intertwined with...accordion?! 3. Conversation With the Moon - Lyrically, one of my favorites. Also, the dramatic shift around 3:15 surprised and delighted me. 4. Into the Mist - Possibly my favorite. I absolutely love the tambourine percussion in the chorus. 5. Sprinkler Song for Jessica - I wish this song were twice as long. Its wistful tone and light harmony are very nice. 6. Ziggurat - Great use of strings. 7. I Was Looking At the Ceiling, and Then I Saw the Sky - Colorful interlude that leads very well into the next track. 8. Antarctica - This track doesn't feel long, even at 7 minutes. The imagery of the lyrics and the music wax from the quiet beginning to a climax beautifully. 9. Ghost In the Fen - Backed by a clever rhythym reminiscent of a circus at times. 10. Annabel Lee - I like the fact that he builds this song around an Edgar Allan Poe poem. Very well done! 11. Eyelids - Calmer than the tracks preceding it, this strings-infused song begins to bring the album to a close. The vocal effects enhance this song as well. 12. The Seventh Seal - This song, from the instrumental beginning to the slowing of the final minute, serves as a microcosm of the album. Great for background music and such, but I first truly appreciated it when I listened to it before falling asleep, free of distractions and enjoying simply the music itself.


So Good...

Imrpoving Upon His First Album

In my opinion, his first album seems a little rushed, relying heavily on Peter's background with punk. On his new album, he seems to be really taking his time to capture the lushness of his orchestration. I was taken aback at first by three tracks at five minutes plus, but having listened to the album in its entriety I can attest to that not being a problem. In fact, you don't even really notices as many of the songs have an adventurous arrangement.
