Actor & Comedian Jay Mohr Pens Heartfelt Review of Logan Lynn’s Forthcoming Double Album “ADIEU.”, Releasing September 23rd

Jay Mohr Review - Logan Lynn ADIEU (2016)

by Jay Mohr, 7/20/2016

Album: ADIEU.
Artist: Logan Lynn
Score: A+

Logan Lynn’s ADIEU. is a victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls.  Impossibly, yet beautifully, ADIEU. makes no claims to anything other than a simple truth: Life is awful, until it’s not.

From the first sentence on the first track (I like it All The Time) Logan Lynn plants a flag of newfound, possibly tenuous independence, singing “Some like it rough, I like it all the time.”  The puzzle pieces that come into view as the album progresses reveal that “it” could be anything from love, pain, pleasure, criticism, praise or friendship.

Logan Lynn by Ray Gordon (2016) - 5ADIEU. is an enormous accomplishment in its ability to keep listeners guessing and re-guessing who Logan Lynn is, and where in this galaxy he comes from. In each track, the truth is always there, a scavenger hunt of feelings with constant payoffs — sometimes hidden on the surface, beneath the surface and so far below cold dark waters that you haven’t even noticed you’ve been dragged under and into his life.  After all, this is, an album about life; a life of suffering; a life of love lost; a life of love found; a life of confusion; a life identified as having value and reclaimed.

Logan’s lyrics are unequaled. They are his and his alone. To cover a Logan Lynn song would be identity theft. A heist. Grand larceny. Break me Down (the best song on the album) is so honest and truthful that with just one pass through the lyrics you feel like an intruder. A spy. A fly on a wet wall about to drop into a broken hearted lap and ruin what remains of what was once an incredible party.  The lyric “Tell me you love me and I’ll kill it with you in time” is such a powerful admission from a co-conspirator; both parties knowing full well their love cannot last, but begging for acknowledgement of what was once the greatest, most fulfilling, shared experience.

I advise you to walk blindly into this album and just sit still. Lynn does all the work for you. It’s his life’s work and it has taken him a few lifetimes to get here. Logan is a brave, brave artist. Read the rest of this entry »

“Logan Lynn says hello to ADIEU: The Portland Artist on Life, Liz Phair and Keeping Oregon Well”

by Alex-Jon Earl

Logan Lynn describes himself as a “singer and songwriter, although probably singer/songwriter doesn’t really evoke the kind of imagery that I am wanting,” and much to his credit, the image his life’s work evokes is far more than this. With numerous singles, EPs and albums under his belt. the Portland artist is now bringing a new album, adieu, and a new campaign to fight stigma around mental health.

Adieu is a notable departure for Lynn, who describes the shift as a move from “electro-pop” to what he calls “organic music,” a process that was as much about music as it was about self care and awareness of mental health. Read the rest of this entry »
