I'll put all the reviews I get in this place so please send any you find.

"Due out June 29th on Second Motion, I Could Sleep for a Thousand Years is one album that should stay in your playlistís rotation for the remainder of the year, if not nine hundred ninety-nine more."

"Even without the guitar-driven sturm und drang, this would be one of 2010's prettiest pop records. With it, it's something else altogether stronger, more dramatic and more affecting."

I could stay AWAKE for a thousand er, parsecs or whatever divide into a week, cause that's how short the wait is :)

Medical studies should be performed on Oz Swervie bodies now to upload and help save the human race from apathetic idiocracy.

Ahem,

Anyway, I COULD SLEEP FOR A THOUSAND YEARS sees Franklin doing what he does best, creating shearing melodic guitar rock. Not as slicing as the Swervedriver material, no, this is a bit more laid back and melodic but no less quality.

Nestled somewhere between the feel of Big Star and Sonic Youth ďSleepĒ is a perfect balance of sweet harmonies and breezy guitars, that was prevelant on 2009ís critically acclaimed Spent Bullets, but is by far Franklinís most accomplished work yet.

...I Could Sleep for a Thousand Years being Franklinís most fully realized solo effort to date. Seductively cool, loud and pretty, soft and spaced-out, yet very approachable, itís everything thatís to be expected of this uniquely gifted songwriter and musician.

I Could Sleep for a Thousand Years actually fuses the two sounds well ó sweet harmonious melodies and amorphous six-string sprawl.
http://www.clevescene.com/c-notes/archives/2010/06/29/out-today-adam-franklin-and-bolts-of-melody

Itís hard not to measure Franklin by his prior successes, but when he lives up to it, why not?

With Swervedriver, Adam Franklin had an eight-year run spinning out dreamy textures of distorted guitar that, however, loud they might turn in live performance, had an unruffled serenity to them.

One of BlackSwanSongs.com all-time favorite artists, Adam Franklin (Swervedriver, Magnetic Morning) continues his prolific run with a new Adam Franklin and the Bolts of Melody album entitled I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years

"Former Swervedriver frontman Franklin returns to working with a full band after a decade of acoustic solo work. This isn't as noisy and rocked-out as Swervedriver, but nonetheless boasts Franklin's unerring melodic sense and a definite fuzzy, shoegaze atmosphere. If you miss Creation Records, you'll enjoy this."

"The most exciting aspects of this disc are certainly its manic moments. ďIíll Be Yr Mechanic,Ē a spaghetti-western-tinged nugget, stands toe to toe with Swervedriverís best early-í90s output, even though the majority of the material here feels like a logical extension of the bandís swan-song, 99th Dream.
