One of the most upbeat and immediate tracks from an album described by Word magazine as being akin to a lantern-wielding gentlefolk descending upon a troubled soul, 'Ringing in my ear' easily eludes and transcends any attempt to peg Adem as just another nu-folkie. Like hope made music, it proves to be the work of a timeless talent, whose aching and weary voice seems to draw from a deep well of collective emotional experience.
