Adams, Ryan : Answering Bell
God’s gift to people who like to listen to music while they read the Sunday papers...
‘Answering Bell’ has the Morrissey-loving songster hanging endlessly on the end of the telephone waiting for you to pick up. And it’s nice. Like Travis are nice, like sunshine is nice - nice in the kind of non-commital, unchallenging way that makes it impossible to hate Adams even though he’s stabbing rock’n’roll in the eye with a sharp pair of scissors every time he flicks his acoustic guitar. Coming soon to a Starbucks near you.
