Barry Adamson’s records are getting the reissue treatment thanks to Mute. Adamson is currently a member of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds (the man himself guests on a track here), but in the mid-90s, when Oedipus Schmoedipus was released, Adamson was crafting these grand mini-epics. Also featuring an incredibly breathy guest vocal from Jarvis Cocker.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 5th March 2018
It took a couple of listens to get used to Adamson’s style. Much of it does indeed sound like music from a movie soundtrack. I find it enjoyable just to sit and listen to or to have on in the background while I work. My favourite cuts are the sultry The Vibes Ain't Nothin' But the Vibes, the uptempo, jazzy Miles and The Sweetest Embrace, which features a guest appearance by the great Nick Cave on vocals. The rest of the album is pretty good, too. There is nothing on it I dislike, there just aren't enough great tunes to say it’s a classic.
