ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Adam Randall is a singer/songwriter who grew up on the west coast of Florida. He writes music in his spare time. "Bodies and Souls Were Meant to be Together" is the culmination of 4 years of writing and recording on weekends with large gaps of time spent pondering the next step. His songs are mini breakthroughs. They are despondent in one place and elated in the next. "Bodies and Souls Were Meant to be Together" is a search and a revelation. A journey for artist and listener.

Faith

An overall great album
I loved the CD from the first listen. The songs are each disinct in their tone and message, yet the album has a fluency to it. The lyrics are insightful, vulnerable and full of truth. A destined classic.

beautiful!
this is a fantastic album... great songwriting, challenging lyrics, beautiful arrangements. this album is certainly not one dimensional, and you'll hear something new each time you listen. i highly recommend this album, especially to fans of artists like Sufjan Stevens, Damien Jurado, Denison Witmer and the like.

Bodies and Souls Were Meant to Be Together
Look, Adam Randall is a personal friend of mine, so you might think my review is biased. You would be right, if I were just your average friend, but I’m jack@$% friend, the kind who really lets you know how they feel about things. This puts a strain on my marriage, but brings my friendships to new depths of deeps. This is not a review of my friendship style, but I want you to trust me when I say buy this CD, you will enjoy it. Give it this Christmas to the music hound in your family. Watch people fight over it at the White Elephant party. “Moment”, “Bodies and Souls”, “Casualties in a War” will all give you various sizes of goosebumps. In a “you get what you pay for world”, this album gives you dividends far beyond the affordable price. Cheers Adam and the band, you guys have stood the test of time, the only rut in your music are the lines burned on my cds from hours of play. Thanks.

Bodies and Souls Were Meant to Be Together
I have followed Adam's music for a few years and this is a VERY nice maturing of a gifted artist. I had to listen to it twice to fully appreciate the work. And it gets better the more I hear it. It is the poet in Adam that I think will set him apart from others. Hey, I bought ten CDs to give as gifts. What more can I say?

This is amazing! I remember when you played your guitar for all of us to sing praise music to in Moscow! This is just as inspiring! Thank you. Sarah

Peters at CD Baby


This album treads the delicate line between intricate folk rock and hook-filled yet emotionally resonant indie pop. Violins, bells, and other sonic flourishes provide a colorful backdrop to Randall's impressive acoustic guitar-based tunes. Adam Randall's talent is pure and his voice is mesmeric and sweet as John Vanderslice. The songs veer from dark and introspective to sweet and loving. It's too limiting to call this folk rock, as Randall clearly has a much deeper set of influences, but he sticks with the acoustic guitar throughout, which lend even the tougher songs a warm personality. At times recalling Death Cab for Cutie and other times Damien Jurado, it won't be long before he is the next big thing.

Variations on a theme
Great album! The song progression tells a story, the highlights for me being Narrow House, Casualties and Bodies & Souls Were Meant to Be Together. This album has a very different vibe from the last CD. You can really hear the maturing of both the artist and the band formerly known as The Adam Project. Listen to it about 5 times in a row and you will fall in love with it!

Thoughtful and Skillful CD
The best thing I can say about this CD is that I hope it is the beginning of something. The lyrics are borne of contemplation and set to music that sweetly uses modern techniques to carry the weight and dignity of his meditations. I love it when an artist like Adam Randall exposes himself and allows the raw man to be seen. I believe we see the real Adam Randall in this work - particularly in Bodies and Souls Were Meant to Be Together.

My only criticism is that I am not sure what is at the "center" of the CD as a whole - I assume future CDs may answer that question.

I recommend the CD for anybody who would be likely to meditate on the meaning of the unity of Body and Soul!
