THE MURKY WORLD OF BARRY ADAMSON
COMPILATION ALBUM MUTE RELEASE: MAY 3, 1999 REVIEW: JUNE 1, 1999
Barry Adamson is the king of Cool. Creator of Bond-esque cinematic soundscapes and tense atmospheres, he is cool in the same way as Miles Davis or James Brown. They all share the absolute mastery in their art and an air of danger and unpredictability.
This compilation samples Barry Adamson's body of work from his solo debut single "The Man with the Golden Arm" in 1988 up until last years critically acclaimed "As Above, so Below". Additionally the record contains three new songs of slightly weaker quality, more entertaining than capturing. "The Murky World of Barry Adamson" is a very good introduction to the work of one of Britain's most inspired musicians right now. Hear it and feel like a gangster in a film noir-movie.
