Adam Green - Engine of Paradise

I was drawn to Adam Green's new album by the mystical, medieval album art but prior to this, I had never heard of the guy. On my first listen, I really enjoyed it. The string section has some really beautiful moments and Green's vocals, which remind me of the late David Berman, seem to fit them perfectly. But there wasn't a lot the held my attention upon repeat listens. While the strings do have beautiful moments, there isn't enough variation on the album to make sustain my interest upon a second or third listen. I think listeners that aren't familiar with chamber pop or baroque pop music might find the presence of strings to be refreshing and unique but most listeners will not find anything new or innovative in Green's string section.
