Synopsis

Album Description
2009 release from the British singer/songwriter (and formerly one-half of '90s favorites Eg & Alice). You already know the songs of Eg White. He co-wrote two of last year's biggest, most soulful and universally loved pop hits, with Britain's shining new female stars: Duffy's classic 'Warwick Avenue' and Adele's sensational 'Chasing Pavements'. Adventure Man contains songs of breakdown and regret ('Broken'), character assassination (There's Gonna Be Someone'), drug addiction ('Whatever Makes You Sick'), surviving depression ('My People'), romantic apology ('But California'), wry autobiography ('Weird Friendless Kid'), the agony of obsessive love ('If You Run') and the joy of being an unreconstructed arsehole ('Pay Later'). And there is a beautiful, harrowing ballad of survival written and sung nearly completely by Alice Temple (the other half of Eg & Alice!), which was a way of "closing the circle.". Parlophone.
 

CD Reviews

Songwriting God!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eg White returns from more than a decade of absence with a powerful album and a couple of soon to be classic tracks. Where to begin? How about at the beginning? The album starts off with a minor song, "But California," then takes off with his version of "Weird Friendless Kid," a song that some may be familiar with via Emiliana Torrrini. Ricky Ross of Deacon Blue contributes on the album;s first single, "Broken," and his fans will not be disappointed. The record probably hits its peak with "Time to Fall," a track destined to be reworked and turned into a smash by someone. I'm thinking who to compare this record to and keep coming back to the New Young Radicals. Gregg Alexander should pick this up and give it a spin, maybe it would encourage him to get back at it."
