Nest of Vipers – DG Adams (Review by John Warwick)
You Know when you’ve been graced by a real songwriter, the feeling, the energy it hits you, pulling you in. The lyric content in every song is just as powerful as the last.
Nest of Vipers is an album with a rawness cut and sting !!
Touching on some great tropic, Love, Reality and true life, DG Adams brings us a brilliant Folk/Rock sound with a hint of the Spanish/Latin Vibe.
Slow start, the Acoustic build-up, reminding me as if it were something out a western,
Light percussion, DG Adams attention to the lyrics get more powerful.
It’s like a story of some getting fucked over.
Right at the end of the song,
Powerful drums, Fantastic fat riff, driving the song out !!
Queen of the Sky
Bright Acoustic begin, Slow strings just cut through,
Somewhat dream-like Floating in the sky sound,
the use of rain/light in the middle of the song,
give the song a sad, but hopeful feel, the back vocals add a
Big Slide electric guitar sound, politically motivated by the true story of mass shooting deaths, and the use of guns. When will the killing end?
Love lyrics the Line “Vegas strip, where the light shines bright,
many lights have gone out tonight” Power song !!
Writing you to Say
Drifting down a river with Neil Young in a boat, Like a good old memory of someone, and you write to them again, remembering the good time,
The feeling of love, Brilliant atmosphere to the song.
If I ever had a Woman
Very Nice toe-tapping Blues rhythm, love the piano sound with guitar,
an old blues club, Smoke room, DG Adams at mics, light down low.
straight-up blues, If I Ever have a woman, bit of love and pain,
Just Brilliant !!
Gravity !! Gravity !! is Get me down. Lyrics poetry at its best.
From the Grave to the heaven, like fall from grace.
The expression of life, a gut-wrenching reality.
When DG Adams sing It like pouring from his soul.
Latin Acoustic jazz feeling, cool and smooth dance.
With slow hand drums, Piano Runs, Percussion,
vocal backup vocals .intimate song and affectionate
but with no ties, just great Melo moody.
Harmonic electric guitar and the seducing slide guitar,
“ Tell me again, Don’t tell me “ simple but brilliant lyrics,
“This song not true, but it about you”.
The storyteller great, Love it, Folk rock at its best.
The tale of Hermana Hermosa, Translate “ Beautiful sister”
Part of the song lyrics in Spanish, with a Spanish feel.
The Love of music, the Island, like a beautiful Woman.
Love the end of the song, the real Acoustic live atmosphere !!
Sad deep song, Children forget to send a message, text or card.
The modern topic of children and their disconnection with the love of a father.
Cello sound beautiful, like a bleeding heart, the pain. Brilliant acoustic guitar and fingerpicking vibe. DG Adams sets the tone, hits you hard, sad by true.
It a nice upbeat song, with a running sound. In the middle of the song, pulled back to a walking pace, take a break from running, just breathe, the straight on your toes.
Running out of everything, the trial of life, never down, but always fight to get through fanatics lyrics.
Nest of Vipers
Charm hymn, or a sting from a viper, “they don’t always bite,
But sometimes their sweet”, haunted by drink and Reality of life.
Brilliant break in the song, like snake bit, Slow picking guitar, love it.
With a slow dream-like song about Coyoacán a city in Mexico,
It showing us DG Adams influence on Spanish music,
With Joni Mitchell Ambient Acoustic Feel.
A brilliant way to Finish the Album off.
