  1. Positive: 4 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. After decades of giving us good and even fine work, he's finally treated the faithful to a masterpiece.
  2. 80
    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. 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.
  5. Comes across like a refresher of the best mood music of the last 40 years. [Aug 2006, p.110]
  6. Adamson creates a wonderful fusion of jazz elements with electronics, poignantly bleak at some moments, and almost carnivalesque at others. [Summer 2006]
  7. 60
    Contains flashes of his finest work. [Aug 2006, p.84]
