"There is an easy argument to be made that Adams is the greatest living American composer," writes the New York Times's Joshua Barone in a feature on Adams in last Sunday's paper. You can read it here.

Merritt’s ... melodies rank among the greatest ever written, but what elevates him into the pantheon of leftfield gods is his almost casual ability to melt arch wit into profound emotion.
