Although Jeff Buckley's one album is very good, Ryan Adams has many very good albums, and so he's better.
So ner ner.
I haven't listened to Jeff in a while.
Time to pop him on ye olde iTunes... Good one, Craig.
Which is fine.
than a ten-track ryan adams greatest hits.
so, you're wrong!
I was gonna say wrighty's logic is flawed... but sometimes there's no arguing with the boy!
Ryan Adams, but I'm pretty sure Jeff Buckley is infinitely better than him.
he doesn't go swimming with his clothes on.
Buckley > Whiskeytown > Ryan Adams. Selected works only, both have plenty of chaff.
If Buckley hadn't died, we wouldn't even be having this DISCCSSDSCSCcussion.
The first disc of My Sweetheart....is pretty hit and miss.
The second showed how good he was though.
Personally I prefer Ryan. But I love both.
Jeff = best singer
Elliott = best songwriter
Ryan wins cos combines both best.
on any level really, I appreciate his songwriting and lyrics, but I HATE his voice. He looks like he should sound so much... cooler.
needs to get heartbroken and listen to Sketches
and then listen to Heartbreaker, and realise it's better?
I don't know why, he's excellent.
goes some way to even out the posthumous buckley releases. Both are very good. I think Ryan Adams' has more brilliant albums by virtue of a bigger recorded output at comparable age, dunno if that makes him better though.
The ones that floor me from both...
Heartbreaker/Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk
The Suicide Handbook
Live at Sine (expanded album)
Love Is Hell(the two disc UK version, Halloween and Caterwhaul are immense)
I find Gold and Grace pretty equivalent, both good too.
