iTunes Review

As a member of the Moldy Peaches and as a solo performer, Adam Green mixes the cutesy with the profane, the serious with the silly, and approximates the mood and tone of the many singer-songwriters who have come before him. Much like his contemporaries — Momus, the Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt, Ween — Green treats music like he’s flipping the dial on a very hip karaoke machine where his original tunes have replaced the usual hits. On his fifth solo album, 2008’s Sixes and Sevens, he finds Jonathan Richman innocence (“Tropical Island”), Tom Jones nightclub schmaltz (“Twee Twee Dee”), Lee Hazlewood darkness (“Getting Led”), and Stephen Malkmus quickstep (“Be My Man”) within his circle of competence. At twenty tunes, and only two exceeding the three-minute mark, the ambitious mix plays less like a stylistically cohesive album than an eclectic radio station where the singer just happens to sound the same. Legendary arranger David Campbell (Leonard Cohen, Cat Power) assists with creating the right soundscapes: “Broadcast Beach” bases itself on a ‘60s girl-group schematic; “It’s A Fine” could be a Gordon Lightfoot outtake; “Homelife” comes to life like Scott Walker with its thick orchestration. Quite a variety.

Customer Reviews

One of his best

With the previous album I was scared that adam was drifting too far away from his moldy peaches days. This album while departing from moldy peaches is adam's best solo album since his first "friends of mine". my favorite song is "drowning head first"

Just very very good

A collection of excellent and quirky pop songs. I have nothing negative to say about this album, Adam does a great job of avoiding a single niche or label. Some of the tracks even conjure memories of the Moldy Peaches (particularly That Sounds Like a Pony). I will say that the production on some of the songs is notably more 'commercial' sounding, but that's not necessarily a bad thing whatsoever. Rather, it meshes well with the songwriting, which at it's core is incredibly catchy pop. One of my favorite albums already.

So much better than Moldy Peaches.

I have listened to Adam Green before I even knew he was in Moldy Peaches and I appriciate his diversity rather than being one dimensional like his counterpart Kimya Dawson. I dont think he likes the new hype from Juno though. Well i'm sure he likes the extra cash. Sixes and Sevens is his best album yet. I believe it celebrates his love for music (hence the gospel singers) more than any of his previous albums. See him live, he is outstanding when drunk and check out his interview on this TV show in Germany on youtube. Really funny stuff.
