Robin Adams' 'Be Gone' contains some worthwhile tracks, but ultimately lacks the depth of its forebears (2 stars)

(Eye Dog Eye)

It’s a bold move for Be Gone to kick off with a protest song called ‘Investment Graveyard’ which is so reminiscent of Bruce Dylan (or is it mid-period Bob Springsteen?) to be almost parodic. Fortunately, Robin Adams swiftly gets into his own stride with stripped-down acoustic fare.

Unfortunately, other than the gorgeously melodic ‘Dead End’, the sparse arrangements leave the remaining songs exposed to a clear-cut analysis, and the verdict isn’t wholly positive. A meek and a mild collection which fails to reveal much in the way of hidden depths no matter how many hearings you give it.

I like this album. Good lyrics, well played and sung. For me Robin is a singer-songwriter with a bright future. He already leaves people like Jackson Brown in the dust.
