iTunes Review

Every time Ryan Adams thinks he’s out, he pulls himself back in. It turns out the follow-up to 2011’s Ashes & Fire isn't the completed album he made with Glyn Johns but a self-produced collection of songs recorded at Adams’ recording studio, PAX AM. (Some tunes were coproduced with Mike Viola.) The mercurial singer/songwriter who broke up his band (The Cardinals), flirted with retirement, and formed a punk group sounds plenty much like the Ryan Adams we’ve come to expect. The alt-country sounds are scrubbed down for an electric guitar–based heartland rock that gets a touch of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, thanks to the involvement of longtime Petty organist Benmont Tench. “Shadows” is the loudest cry in the dark, with Adams’ guitars ringing and clashing over Tal Wilkenfeld’s stalking bassline. “Feels Like Fire” follows up the existential ache, with Johnny Depp playing guitar and adding a backing vocal. “I Just Might” pulses with a hint of Bruce Springsteen’s “State Trooper.”

Man Crush

I’m in love with Ryan Adams voice… and I’m a dude. A straight dude. A grown man can love another grown man that he’s never met, right? I mean, his voice makes me want to make bad decisions so that I can have some pain in my life so that I can relate better to what his voice is saying.

It's good alright! Perfection perhaps...

Wow! If "Gimme Something Good" is any indication of the quality of the upcoming album, we are in for a treat! Beautiful song. Classic crunchy electric guitar and haunting organ. Initially, it almost sounds simple, but the simplicity leads to well orchestrated opportunities to weave auditory bliss that Ryan Adams is so capable of.

Demands It's Mood

Listen to the EQ and compression on the drums. Perfect. Listen to the thick slapback delay on the vocals. Perfect. This album is definitely in a mood. "Don't worry, it's ok."

If you can listen to the studio version of "Stay With Me" (and the rest of the album for that matter) and not be sucked into its dark alley mood, then I don't know what to tell you. The album paints colors of it's attitude just by its presence of sound. The chorus on the guitars are nostalgic of 80's bands or something you've felt before. Such a great example of album production thrift shopping. This album is equipped with everything you need to go to that dark place downtown New York, swarming with punks, drifters, and the heartbroken. And once you go there, you get the feeling you'll never get back to wherever you was before.


Genre: Rock

Mixing the heartfelt angst of a singer/songwriter with the cocky brashness of a garage rocker, Ryan Adams is at once one of the few artists to emerge from the alt-country scene to achieve mainstream commercial success and the one who most strongly refused to be defined by the genre, leaping from one spot to another stylistically while following his increasingly prolific muse. Adams was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina in 1974. While country music was a major part of his family's musical diet...
