iTunes Editors' Notes

Ryan Adams released three albums in 2005, issued a ton of musical and parodic scraps at his website in 2006, and finally returned in June 2007 with his ninth proper album, the deliberately restrained Easy Tiger.  Backed by the Cardinals, it’s 13 tunes, all but one under the three-and-a-half minute mark, kept stylistically close to the alt.country rock for which he is best known and appreciated (“Two,” “Everybody Knows,” “I Taught Myself How To Grow Old”). Adams occasionally indulges his Jeff Buckley vocal flights of fancy for the four-plus minute “The Sun Also Sets” and the years have mellowed him somewhat, making his presentations occasionally less the light shuffling Nashville Skyline Bob Dylan than American Beauty-era Grateful Dead. But he’s still lyrically precise and the orchestrated drama fueling “Rip Off” recalls the ambition of the mid-70s countrypolitan sound, while the Nashville-meets-L.A. ‘70s radio pop of “Two Hearts” bounces to the easy sway of the Eagles under the influence of Roy Orbison.

Customer Reviews

Shot at the title

The early reviews of Easy Tiger trod the same lazy path, as have the majority of Adams reviews post Gold. The cut and paste consensus suffocating Ryan Adams is reminiscent of the treatment of Nick Drake. Journalists just don't get him. He's too prolific, he's a plagiarist, he needs an editor. Or the historical review ... Heartbreaker was brilliant, Gold should have broken him globally, Rock and Roll was throwaway, Love is Hell... too depressing and then the trilogy dismissed for lack of quality control. He's the best since Young , Mitchell and Dylan and he's been buried by halfwits. This is his safest album, perhaps the album that Lost Highway needed from him. Genius tamed? Still better than the rest.

Ryan Lives

The first "clean"(off the drugs and booze for more than a year now) album from the battered heart of Ryan Adams, Easy Tiger delivers a gorgeous array of songs. The rock infused "Halloweenhead" sitting comfortably alongside the lilting country stylings of "Oh My God Whatever etc" and "Everybody Knows". Highlights include the aching "I Taught Myself How To Grow"and the bittersweet "Two". Fans of Ryan will be happy and newcomers....well, what have you been doing??

More Of the brilliant same

Ryan adams is the most consistantly brillant and prolific songwriters of the last 30 years. Some say he has not filte, but the more the better. in the days of ipods you can be your own editor and ever single Adams album (Rock n Roll aside) has at least half a dozen absolute gems you'll want to revisit again and again. This is one of his most coherant records, with standouts Halloweenhead, Oh My God Whatever etc, and the stunning I taught myself how to grow old. They shouldnt have bothered with the bonus tracks as the latter is one of the best album closers i've ever heard
