JFH Staff's Second Opinion

Despite Adam Watts' reputation as a pop songwriter, much of his solo work doesn't fit into a box of preconceptions. No matter how listeners react to his indie material, they can't deny his passion. On Watts' newest release, When a Heart Wakes Up, that passion is on full display.

"Don't Take Me Out" kicks off the album with layered time signatures, likely disorienting listeners for a few seconds until they realize there's nothing wrong with their internet speed or mp3 file. Throughout this album, he experiments with sounds and rhythms that don't lend themselves to mainstream. Even so, his compositions, from the soaring and emotive "End of Alone" to the experimental "No One Here is Innocent," are consistently melodic and engaging. Sometimes his voice is tender and sometimes it punches you in the face, but his delivery is always from the heart.
