Adie
Just You And Me



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks: 43 minutes, 3 seconds
Street Date: March 9, 2010


Twenty-eight-year-old Adie Camp is no stranger to the music scene-- beginning with The Benjamin Gate, marrying CCM artist Jeremy Camp, and entering the market as a solo artist, Adie's been around the block and back. It's been more than three years since she released her debut Don't Wait, and, frankly, it's high time her listeners were treated to some new material. On Just You And Me, Adie explores some deep themes with a combination of old and new worshipful tunes, ranging from the day-to-day walk with God, to marriage, to a tragic miscarriage during the recording process.

For the longtime listener, there's very little similarity between Just You And Me and Don't Wait. It's immediately clear that Adie has swapped the edgier pop songs for something a little more intimate, in both musical and lyrical content. Invoking the spirit of artists like Bethany Dillon and Joy Williams, Just You And Me is slow, melodic, and all-around calming. It's easily set apart from other albums in the genre by its intricate songwriting, and even reading the song titles will give an idea of what Adie's trying to say with the project. "Ultimately at the end of the day," she says, "it's our relationship with the Lord and our heart toward Him that really is the most important thing."

The album's opener, "Where Could I Go" is a peaceful acoustic ballad telling of redemption and hope. "All I Need Is You," a electronically-tinged little number, includes a moving-- albeit a little repetitive-- chorus. Some other highlights include Adie's version of "Soon," arguably one of the better adaptations, "Shelter," written as a response to the Camps' heart-wrenching miscarriage, and the compelling "Redemption Song." Closing out Just You And Me is the gradually-building anthem "Only You," which was the inspiration for the album's title: "It's just You and me here now..."

Just You And Me is an undoubtedly heartfelt collection of songs, both inspiring and thoughtful. That being said, there is unfortunately very little to write home about in this album. As much as you want to love it, the unoriginality of the song structures-- and even the notes themselves-- will leave you wanting substantially more. To her credit, Adie has a few solid tunes here, and you won't find a more honest songwriter... but that's about all that can be said for Just You And Me.

In the final analysis, Adie Camp's sophomore record is exactly what a sophomore record should be. It builds upon the debut, and give listeners a taste of what's coming next. If Just You And Me is an indication of a growing process in Adie's music, then we're sure to receive some promising things from her. Unfortunately, this time around, it's not quite hitting the mark. Make no mistake, though-- we will be hearing good things from Adie in the future.
