    Planets, space, stars, galaxies, love, and all of us... what does it all mean? Who knows, let's try to figure it out. Everything is connected, it seems... Listen to the lyrics on this album and have fun with all the sounds and off kilter beats. Give it time, it will grow on you after 3 or 4 listens. I keep coming back to this album as one of my favorites this year. Perfect for quiet, Planets, space, stars, galaxies, love, and all of us... what does it all mean?

There aren't many songs that stick out as "hits", just listen to it all the way through and enjoy! Expand

  1. Comparing Homesongs to Love and Other Planets, as is sadly unavoidable with a debut and its follow up, reveals the former to be the more immediate, the more melodic and the more understandable. However, Love and Other Planets, despite a glossier overtone, is the detailed, developing record.
  2. 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.
  3. Whilst retaining the heartfelt beauty of his debut album, it is the subjects tackled on Love And Other Planets and the experimentation with which this is done that really shows Adem is reaching for the stars.
