  1. After decades of giving us good and even fine work, he's finally treated the faithful to a masterpiece.
  2. Mojo

    Proves again what an unnerving space the interior of his head must be. [Aug 2006, p.104]
  3. That the least interesting material falls to the back is unfortunate, because most of the album is engaging.
  4. Under The Radar
    60
    Adamson creates a wonderful fusion of jazz elements with electronics, poignantly bleak at some moments, and almost carnivalesque at others. [Summer 2006]
  5. Uncut
    60
    Contains flashes of his finest work. [Aug 2006, p.84]
  6. It’s obvious Adamson possesses some serious musical vision, but Stranger on the Sofa takes so many musical missteps and is so laughable lyrically, I have trouble recommending it.
  7. Q Magazine
    60
    Comes across like a refresher of the best mood music of the last 40 years. [Aug 2006, p.110]
