Though this is his second album, Adem, the former bassist in critically acclaimed Brit post-rockers Fridge (which also included Four Tet's Kieran Hebden), is accustomed to making recordings people really like. The pressure was on when he went solo, and instead of following his indie rock roots, he picked up an acoustic and started singing fragile melodies. People liked the formula, and he's stuck with it on Love And Other Planets. Opener Warning Call, a softly engaging tune about repeating mistakes filled with Will Oldhamesque harmonies, sets the tone for the entire disc. Though the album can get somewhat repetitive, Adem's polished production and intimate songwriting minimize any flaws.
