Logan Lynn - Adieu - Album Artwork by Ian Ophelan (2016)

 

Check out these reviews!!!


 
“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. For anyone that has ever felt disconnected, unheard, under-appreciated or unrequited, this is the album to hold tightly to your chest. A+”
– Jay Mohr (Comedian, Actor, Radio Host and Best Selling Author)

 

ADIEU is one to get, Dandy friends!”
The Dandy Warhols

 

“Portland musician Logan Lynn is many things: a respected songwriter, mental health advocate, and LGBTQ icon. ADIEU is a smart mix of alt-country and indie electronica, with lyrics that may be dark, but are ultimately uplifting. It may have taken decades, but he has finally found his true voice, and is far from saying goodbye. With Adieu, Logan Lynn is really saying hello—to the world, to himself, and to the future.”
– Hutch Harris of The Thermals

 

ADIEU, Lynn’s eighth and quite possibly best album, covers everything from loss, love, mental health, and sex and drugs: just about everything you need for an enduring rock record.”
– New Noise Magazine

 

“Logan Lynn returns with ADIEU, his eighth studio album and a seismic message of resilience and recovery. Lynn’s danceable, party perfect sound succeeds in a major musical hat trick; doubling as a hopeful anthem for anyone who has suffered the one-two sucker punch of trauma compounded by self-medicating. These songs are dirty, raw and so beautifully rendered I could not stop listening. ADIEU fills the vacant space in music that goes beyond drugs, sex and rock and roll to what happens next, when the wounded and victimized awaken to the potential of their own lives. The mix of rock, pop and 90’s rhythms is so infectious, one might be tempted to forego the liner notes and lyrics. Don’t make that mistake. As a mental health advocate and suicide loss survivor, I cheered this album and its anthem: Stick around and bear witness to the beating of your own heart.”
– Sheila Hamilton (Emmy Award Winning Journalist, 101.9 Kink FM Morning Show Host, and Author of “All The Things We Never Knew: Chasing The Chaos Of Mental Illness”)

 

“Logan Lynn has always had a knack for making danceable rock and pop and with “The One,” he shows that he can now confidently rock out with the same gusto.”
– Glide Magazine

 

ADIEU is a total success. This lengthy album features songs that are, admittedly, probably too smart for the average casual listener, but the delivery is so straightforward and genuine that you can’t help but enjoy yourself…even if the topics are sometimes heavy and intense. Although there are hundreds of possible reference points and influences in these tracks, in the end it’s difficult to come up with any specific comparison because Lynn seems to be driven by the pure motivation to create and express himself. Usually albums that delve into personal redemption and struggles are self-indulgent and tedious. That is not the case here. Logan writes songs that are ultimately catchy and friendly, and they make you want to immediately hear them again and again. We like everything about this album. Great songs, great vocals, super intelligent lyrics, and arrangements that are a perfect fit for each track. This guy has really hit the bull’s eye here for fans of underground pop.”
– Babysue.com (LMNOP)

 

“Sex, Dogs and Mental Health? After years of translating emotional hardship into musical coherence, Logan Lynn’s grief has opened the door to creating something beautiful as he returns with his eighth studio record, ADIEU.”
– Vortex Music Magazine

 

“At 15 tracks, Lynn manages to keep the momentum up throughout the entire record thanks to smart lyrics, a strong mix of synths and sharp guitars and a knack for mixing in some truly inventive elements to what could have easily just been standard catchy pop songs. ADIEU is quite possibly his best yet, as each song here builds on the next for an impressively cohesive set, ending in the brilliantly wry ‘Oh, Lucifer’. Despite a mix of up tempo indie pop and more introspective piano tracks, they fit together beautifully. Lynn continues to impress eight records into his career. 4 out of 5 stars.”
– Blurt Magazine

 

“Stylistically ‘The One’ sees a slight shift in direction for Lynn, whose past releases have been more electronic, whether it’s veering towards the dance floor or creating hook-filled alt-pop. This first track from his forthcoming new album ‘Adieu’ sees him tackling garage inspired indie-rock without losing those catchy melodies and pop sparkle.”
– The Sound of Confusion (UK)

 

“Veteran Portland songwriter Logan Lynn releases a document in vulnerability and his most uncomfortable album yet…Openness and honesty guides his new album ADIEU, which is more bare than anything Lynn has released before. It’s also less buried beneath technology, more indebted to Liz Phair, The Innocence Mission and The Sundays.”
– Willamette Week

 

“Somehow, a kid who grew up in a fundamentalist Christian church where even musical instruments were too secular to have around has developed into an innovative adult musician with a dirty-honest edge…blunt, raunchy, and fun.”
– Advocate Magazine

 

“Estos no han sido unos buenos años para Logan Lynn. El estadounidense en un corto plazo de tiempo perdió a su chico y a su querido perro, y con esas ausencias en su vida los fantasmas de los trastornos mentales y el suicidio volvieron a acecharle. Aunque eso sí, lejos de decantarse por la autodestrucción, ha aprovechado estas vicisitudes para crear un álbum catártico en el que, sin tapujos, se desnuda como nunca con la pérdida del amor como principal leit motiv. Aparcando su conocida faceta electrónica (aun habiendo números como “Way Out” o esa “Oh Lucifer” en la que vuelve a hacer gala de su compromiso con la comunidad LGTB) Lynn y su fiel colaborador Gino Mari tanto se dejan querer por el pop californiano (“Can You Get Me Off?”) como rinden pleitesía a sus admirados The Dandy Warhols (en “The One”) en un disco igual de bello que visceral. 7 out of 10 stars.”
– Mondo Sonoro Magazine (Spain)

 

“It’s been four years since Portland’s Logan Lynn last put out a full length and despite coming out with a wildly popular Miley Cyrus cover in 2013, his latest record ADIEU is aligned much closer to ’90s college radio rock and classic theatrical rock than a contemporary party album…The whole thing is very jazz hands mental health crisis, frankly. Logan Lynn is a modern day Gene Kelly.”
– Innocent Words Magazine

 

“Disco Recomendado ADIEU: Uno de los regresos más esperados desde este espacio de música ya está acá, el dolor que inspira la perdida, la perdida que inspira a la creación, toda expresión que fluye como la sangre en las venas, vuelve en uno de los trabajos más maduros de Logan Lynn.”
– La Musique Radio (Colombia)

 

“Logan Lynn’s emo-disco-pop blend has already made him a hit with gay guys who like to hear their lives — from the highs to the lows — set to music. His ability to capture melancholy and melody is really no surprise, given that his grandmother also taught a similarly emotional man, Johnny Cash.”
– OUT Magazine
