New Ryan Adams Song For Download - Trying To Be Bono?

A lot of Ryan fans are bitching that Ryan is trying to be Bono on his new song...that it sounds like an early 90's U2 song.

I don't know...whatever...I LOVE IT. Check it out!

It kind of reminds me of the Cure. I'm not won over yet, though.

IT does sound quite early U2-ish in a way

the think that amazes me most in Ryan Adams is his singing
(even more than being one of the best songwriters of the last 10+ years)
he really can adapt to whatever the song asks for
and though this might not be my fave Ryan song
the singing is again spot on IMO

so

I heard it. I don't think it's absolutely earth shatteringly great, but I love the ending where Ryan sings 'I am on your side'. Gorgeous!

I love the ending as well.

I've heard one of the other songs from the album as well, and I think it just may be my favorite Ryan song. I cannot wait for this album!

An article in the new issue of Rolling Stone talks about Ryan's new sound:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Six months ago, Ryan Adams was in a slump. "I'd sort of lost my interest in playing music," Adams says. "I'd been obsessed with writing all these confessional songs. I didn't know how to not be so self-serious, because I was so bummed out. It was like I was caught in some really shitty Kafka novel - it was, like, country goth." After taking some time off, he started doing what he does best: writing songs. The notoriously prolific Adams holed up in a converted rehearsal space in the basement of Hi-Fi, a bar in Manhattan's East Village, and began recording four-track tapes with a friend. The difference this time around: Adams was playing almost exclusively electric guitars, which gave the tunes a looser, less-depressive feel. "I always just figured that I was crap as a guitarist," he says. "But I really like to turn up the guitar and get all Black Flag about it. It was a lot more interesting than confessional folk rock."

Adams recorded some of the songs at a New York studio, and the result was his electrified new record lloR N kcoR (hint: Hold the title up to a mirror). Though he says he can't compete with his boyhood guitar heroes - Johnny Marr, Bob Mould, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia - there are traces of those players all over the place, from the grating dissonances that kick off the album to the classic-rock clamor of "1974" to the delicate interplay of "Song For A Girl In Los Angeles". In fact, lloR N kcoR serves as a primer of basic guitar strategies from Lynyrd Skynyrd to U2. It's a successful, if not shocking, artistic makeover for the increasingly upbeat-sounding Adams. "I really want my playing to be good," says Adams, who hasn't exactly been known for his humility in the past. "But it always comes out shitty. I guess I just want it to sound f-u-n." It does.

IMO the man is so amazingly talented that it will always be interesting to check out his new stuff
be it electric, acoustic, country or rock
