REVIEW - 'FIND THE WAY' BY GUILLAUME
FROM POP NEWS JULY
'06 (TRANSLATED FROM FRENCH)
On his first album, Steve Adey begins with precisely Will Oldham, and
not any piece (“I See has Darkness”, already légendifié
by Johnny Cash), it is thus guy which is what it has, undoubtedly these
is a magic voice which evokes that of Paul Buchanan of The Blue Nile.
On the intro cappela of “Find the Way”, one would be almost
taken from this place, which is altogether very good. Serious, sometimes
austere - piano and voices are distributed throughout most of the time
with a snail like tempo, helped by some notes of guitars and some flat
tints of violin and cello -, the music of the English is not there to
laugh at but settles durably without wearying. The time which these four
pieces (of which a second reading of Find the Way” in included,
) last. The video illustrating “Find has Way” plays nicely
on nostalgic fibre.
On the memories which slip by into Super 8. Splendid and miserable at
the same time.
