Adam Green-Minor Love

Going into this album, I knew very little of Adam Green. The only song of his I was really familiar with was Jessica, and that was mainly because of who it was about more than the singer behind it. But, when I saw Adam had a new album out and heard it was a more serious album than any of his previous ones, I decided to give it a chance. Am I ever glad I did, this is one of my favorites of 2010 so far. From the first track, I could tell this was going to be a different kind of album than I expected based on what I knew about Green. Breaking Locks, the first track on the album, is a self-deprecating somber tune that is lo-fi, as is the rest of the album. Boss Inside is easily my favorite song on the album, and it is open to many different interpretations, but most likely, you’ll come to the conclusion it’s a tragically sad song about someone who seems to be lost, whether it be in love or substance, or both. Not all the songs are sad and somber though, some of them, such as Goblin, Cigarettes Burn Forever, and Castles and Tassels are upbeat and mostly silly like his previous work. All in all, this is a great balanced album that most people can find something on that they enjoy. I may be biased towards this album, but if someone asked me where to start with Adam Green, I would definitely point them to this album, and tell them to work their way back from there.
