So, tell me about this Ryan Adams feller....

I caught Ryan performing "New York New York" on one of those SNL repeats. I was really shocked by it. I thought he was a John Mayer type, but that performance was VERY young Bruce Springsteen. I was impressed.

So, what mp3s should I download? I already got New York, New York.

Definitely NOT a John Mayer type. I have nothing against John Mayer, but Ryan Adams is brilliant. And he's too, which I always find intriguing.

I recommend:

"La Cienega Just Smiled" ( This song is absolutely gorgeous)

"When the Stars Go Blue"

"Answering Bell"

Okay, all of Gold.

And Heartbreaker.



I suck at narrowing things down.

La Cienega Just Smiled

Also, you can usually find lots of copies of Gold at resale shops because a lot of people bought it for "New York, New York" and didn't realize how "country" the rest of the album is.

Bonochick is the authority on Ryan if I remember correctly. I am a fan of his also, since his early days playing with his band whiskeytown. He has a great folky type sounds and a tremendous voice.......highly recommended!

Oh yeah.

But in the interim, download Shakedown on 9th Street, To Be Young, and Come Pick Me Up. The whole album is incredible, but those are my favorites. And Sweet Lil Gal. And Damn Sam. Yeah...you should really just get the whole album. lol.

Also, if you buy Gold, be sure to get the limited edition (unlike me ). It has an extra disc with 5 extra songs, all of which were worthy of being on the actual album. The Bar is a Beautiful Place is just heartbreakingly beautiful and is probably my favorite Ryan Adams song.

Hope my ramblings helped.

I downloaded a song called Street Walkin Blues that's really cool. Thanks for the suggestions!

That's "Tina Toledo's Street Walkin' Blues" from Gold. My favorite song is from that album too..."Sylvia Plath"...I put it on repeat everynight and listen to it through headphones as I fall asleep.

I confess, I've only got his three solo albums...I have yet to get a Whiskeytown album (I am thinking I will very soon...I just need to scrape up some spare cash!). From those albums though, these are my fave tracks:

Heartbreaker

~"To Be Young (is to be sad, is to be high)"
~"Oh My Sweet Carolina"
~"Bartering Lines"
~"Come Pick Me Up"

Gold

~"Sylvia Plath"
~"Firecracker"
~"Wild Flowers"
~"Harder Now That It's Over"
~"Goodnight, Hollywood Blvd"
~"The Rescue Blues"

Okay...I have to stop before I list them all...

Demolition

~"Nuclear"
~"Hallelujah
~"Desire"
~"Cry On Demand"
~"Dear Chicago"

Wow...it's hard to pick only some...*lol* Like I said though, I really want to check out Whiskeytown's material as well. Everybody says their stuff is really good.

Ya know...it's April's fault I'm obsessed...she never should have asked me if I wanted to go to his concert.

Heartbreaker is the best album, and he has great stuff in his earlier band, Whiskeytown

Gold is alright
I've heart his new one is his worse...he needs to get back to his roots

Well, Demolition is just a collection of Demos. But I don't think he even knows what his roots are. Have you read the interview in which he goes off about how much he hates country music?

That's what's so fantastic about Ryan Adams. He hates everything and is completely .

Exactly. He's like the King of Random. He'd love IO.

He threw someone out of one of his shows when they requested a Bryan Adams tune. I wanna see him live and yell a request for "Summer of '69", them punch him in the nose when the tries to toss me out.

Here's the story link: http://nme.com/news/103255.htm
