  • Summary: This is the second album of home-made recordings for multi-instrumentalist and former Fridge bassist Adem Ilhan.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 20 out of 24
  2. Negative: 1 out of 24
  1. Rhythmically tricky acoustic arrangements showcase his soaring, sensitive-bloke vocals. [29 Sep 2006, p.81]
  2. 80
    A much grander affair [than his debut]. [Jun 2006, p.103]
  3. Though the album can get somewhat repetitive, Adem's polished production and intimate songwriting minimize any flaws.
  4. Enchanting, celestially lovely and as effective at lifting you out of yourself for forty-five minutes as an early evening cruise in a space shuttle.
  5. 70
    Never succumbing to mere cleverness, Adem achieves a singularly intimate expansiveness. [Nov 2006, p.96]
  6. Adem mirrors the ambitious approach of Sufjan Stevens. [13 May 2006, p.41]
  7. Unfortunately, Adem’s efforts to take his music to new places result in the abandonment of much of what made Homesongs so appealing.
