"I like four tet and fridge whose connections to Adem brought him to my attention. The music and melodies themselves, regardless of subject matter, are enough to make this a good album. But what really sets this one apart for me is the use of cosmological facts and phrases for poetic symbolism over a backdrop of folk music. Songs have been written in conjunction with space for god knows how long, but I'd never run across one that does so with the sensibility that "Love and Other Planets" does. Instead of using the metaphor in a cliche, retro-futuristic manner, Adem sings about the subject with perhaps some of the same rhetoric as Carl Sagan's Cosmos television series, exploring inherent human questions and emotions towards the mystery of space and the exploration of it. Also, some principles of astronomy are used in the lyrics to mirror the intricacies of our relationships: "I saw you and moon... when I arrived I found only tombs, 'cause light is a liar telling old truths" which is just one of an album full of imaginative lyrical images with double meanings. To space nerds, folk fans, and anyone who values good, conceptual music, I recommend "Love and Other Planets"."
