Absent an historical musical context or a functioning b.s. detector, it is possible to mistake Adams for being as talented and clever as he thinks he is. But then there are plenty of people who can't tell the difference between plastic flowers and real ones, until they bend over to take a whiff.Pitchfork Media also just published a whole interview they got with Adams after he called to complain about their reviews.
Guess he's a man on a mission.
