Adam Richman - Patience and Science Review
by Eric Bodrero

A few months back, Adam Richman released the Patience EP, a great little five song teaser to this record and served as a perfect lead-in to Patience and Science. The full length sees Adam expanding the ideas established in the EP and sets him apart as one of the more unique talents in the indie rock scene.

Simplicity is the order of the day with Patience and Science, with simplistic hooks and vocals, and a simple ideology that less is more. However, every track is as contagious as the flu, and the lyrics will stick to your brain like superglue. Catchy, frivolous vocals and staccato-like percussion abound in tracks like "Mary-Anne" and "Suck It Up", while other tracks like "The Loneliness Song" and "Lost On Timing" see him slowing it down just a tad, enough to prove that he can produce more than just power-pop anthems and quirky, angst-filled odes.

However, on some tracks Adam walks the thin line between creativeness and pure repetitiveness, relying on the same old formulas to bail him out. Thankfully for everyone involved, including the fans, it works. Again, and again, and again. This is one of those records that end before you ever figure out what you were listening too, despite the fact that it's a good forty eight minutes long. Patience and Science and the EP compliment each other nicely, and I'd hate to be a Richman fan without one or the other.
