ADIOS is Cory Branans death record. Not the cheeriest of openings, but like all of Branans mercurial work, its probably not what you think. As funny and defiant as it is touching and sad, this self-dubbed losers survival kit doesnt spare its subjects or the listener.Not even Branans deceased father is let off the hook. In the tender homage The Vow he drolly cites his fathers favorite banality thats what you get for thinking as probably not the best lesson for kids. For most songwriters that would be the punchline but Branan pushes through words and, in his fathers actions, finds a kind of genius in the effortless way he just did.Not all the death on ADIOS is literal mortality. Imogene is sung from the wreckage of a love that once poked fun at the pain, stoked the sun in the rain but ends with the urgent call to act on the embers, ash wont remember the way back to fire.
