The second half of Robin Adams’ double album release this month comes in the shape of Train Crash Choir, and while the singer-songwriter may well be the introvert he proclaims, there is no such sign of shyness to be heard here.
The record proves difficult to place as it sways rather unsmoothly through an array of emotions. A predominately acoustic backdrop supplies the foundation for Adam’s rock-styled vocals that whisper of Tom Meighan and fellow Glasgow dweller, Yusuf Azak.
Like a box of roses though, the highlight tracks come and go in the first 10 minutes and while the album is a commendable effort as a whole, the concluding ‘Look Up’, acts only as the green triangles; y’know, the one with all the nuts?
With something of a Scottish tour on the horizon, Train Crash Choir contains a wealth of catchy acoustic/pop songs that given the right energy, could be the platform for a very exciting live performance.
