Record reviews, southern shows

Heading back to Athens as the CD Release tour continues in the southeast with scattered weekend shows in November. 100% chance of music.

A few reviews have trickled in for Wounded Electric Youth, and they’re certainly favorable. Have a look:

“Wounded Electric Youth is a bold move for Adam Klein… one of the finest albums of the year. This is a treasure trove of song writing. Klein displays a sense of subtlety rare in the ego driven world of the modern music scene. The art of storytelling which was so prominent in Klein’s last album “Western Tales and Trails” is again present here and comes to the fore in “Of Pirates and Vagabonds”, while the imagery and colour portrayed throughout the album is a delight. “12th and Porter” brings the album to a close as if at the end of a long, but wholesome journey… Classy. It is a confident and assured step forward for Klein…”
– Tim Merricks, Americana UK (9*) [see full review here]

“One step further in his artistic evolution… Klein is a brilliant songwriter and storyteller… [Wounded Electric Youth]’s beauty and strength lie in the quiet, subtle narrative work which manages to touch your deepest soul.”
– Rootstime [see review here in Dutch]

“Covers the entire idiom, ranging from country soul to country-pop, rustic country folk to light-gritty country rock.”
– Altcountry.nl
