i'm mostly shocked that they did not use the word "prolific" anywhere in the review.

Good stuff.

I haven't shared the link to the one I go to because I don't know if I'd consider it a good board for an outside Ryan fan to jump into, to be honest. Our old board got shut down (thanks, Ryan), so we're at this new, slightly-but-not-very-well-disguised one. There's a lot of perverted and childish discussion, and some people are just kind of mean. I don't even go there while I'm at work anymore because some of the stuff posted is just too gross. I keep going there because it is a good Ryan source, but you have to be willing to weed through tons of junk. There are also lots of people there that I've come to know over the years that I really like, so I go to chat with them. New people tend to feel alienated though.

This is from RollingStone.com today. They seem rather excited about "Easy Tiger."

"As both Whiskeytown frontman and solo artist, Ryan Adams has been helping damaged lovers fill breakup/makeup mix tapes for more than a decade. While prolific to the point of compulsion nothing he’s done has rivaled his classic solo debut, 2000’s uniformly gorgeous Heartbreaker…until now. The punk troubadour’s new album Easy Tiger - which is playing in our mail room, in our editors’ cars, and may soon be piped in via loudspeaker to the restrooms around here - has us thinking Adams may finally transcend his perpetual next big thing status. If you haven’t already heard the messy, chaotic jam “Goodnight Rose,” which opens the album check it out here. It gives way to the elegiac “Two,” which has Adams lamenting “it takes two when it used to take one” between sincere if roguish apologies for not being a better man. Other great tracks include the churning, almost violent ode to self-destruction, “Halloween Head,” the traditional folk ballad “Pearls On a String,” and “These Girls,” a spare confessional that would fit perfectly next to “Sylvia Plath” on Gold or “Call Me On Your Way Back Home” on Heartbreaker. Easy Tiger seems to prove that Adams — having for years indulged his jones for Grateful Dead-inspired jam band impersonation (and other dubious cravings) — is once again as in touch with the delicate tragedies of life and love as he’s ever been."

I was just over on Amazon pre-ordering the new Wilco album, and this album was one of the ones it recommended. Strangely enough, it seems Stephen King is backing it. From their "product description" section:

Quote:
I think there are really only two kinds of pop music CDs these days. There are the ones you listen to only once or twice, maybe downloading the single good song to your iPod or computer; then there are others that grow stronger, sweeter, and more necessary each time you play them. Gold was that way; Cold Roses was that way; so was Jacksonville City Nights. I won't say Adams is the best North American singer-songwriter since Neil Young...but I won't say he isn't, either. What I know is there has never been a Ryan Adams record quite as strong and together as Easy Tiger; it's got enough blue-eyed, blue-steel soul (with the faintest country tinge) to make me think of both Marvin Gaye and the Righteous Brothers. Probably ridiculous, but true. And the songs themselves are beautiful--the lyrics tightly focused and brief, the feeling one of melancholy calm that will probably be a revelation to fans that remember the old, sometimes angry Ryan Adams.

Now there's this, maybe the best Ryan Adams CD ever. And I know you want to listen to it right away. But slow down. Take your time. This album asks for that, and it will reward your full attention.

In other words--easy, Tiger.

--Stephen King
Quite a generous description. It makes me more interested to hear it.

The performance of "Goodbye Rose" on the Henry Rollins show was awesome, I do wonder if the jam will go on that long on the record. I know the Cardinals are the backing bad, but they're not credited. Since it's billed as a solo album, I'm doubting the jam is there, but still.

RYAN ADAMS WILL NOT BE PLAYING GUITAR THIS WEEK


Without going into all the gory details, let’s just say it’s got to do with a skateboard, a 12-foot bowl, and a now-torn ligament. This is NOT anywhere near as bad as the Liverpool accident from a few years back, though...Ryan expects to be playing guitar again soon.

For now, enjoy Neal Casal playing an excellent (if right-handed) Iommi to Ryan’s lighter-weight-and-fringeless Ozzy.

Thanks.
