Am I missing out on much?
listen to Heartbreaker.
Are also worth listening. Not as good as Gold and Heartbreaker but include some of his best stuff like I See Monsters, How Do You Keep Love Alive, Magnolia Mountain.
oh God yes.
Stop whatever you are doing now.
Go and buy Heartbreaker.
Go directly home.
You can thank us all later.
a review shall be forthcoming on this thread at some point this evining.
then get love is hell
was in the same situation. It took me about six months of badgering him to get me to listen to Heartbreaker. Eventually he did and and couldn't stop gushing to me about how great it was.
Seriously, it makes most of Gold sound like Achy Breaky Heart.
buy the entire whiskeytown back catalogue
do not buy Easy Tiger
i wouldn't bother with faithless street but the other two are top. although i'd hold off getting stranger's almanac until the reissue comes out :D
a lot. it's one of my favourites.
that you should get Heartbreaker?
Dont bother with nowt else.
These lot are lying.
Go FORWARD. LISTEN TO ROCKNROLL. Its fucking amazing. Then Love Is Hell. Then Heartbreaker, then the others.
Heartbreaker = good until number 11 or something. Then its just one long boring song that I can't even hear.
is for demolition and cold roses!
let us know what you think of whichever albums you pick up.
a duff album IMO. Get all of 'em. You'll enjoy it.
(not including unreleased stuff)
rural free delivery
love is hell
rock 'n' roll
jacksonville city nights
god i'm going to regret that.
the destroyer sessions
otherwise the suicide handbook and 48hrs would both be high up.
NO NO DONT FORGET
NO NO NO MY EARS ARE MY OF CHEESE SO I DONT THINK ITS GOOD
Rock n Roll - 10
Cold Roses - 10
Love is Hell - 9
Heartbreaker - 8
Easy Tiger - 8
Demolition - 7
Gold - 7
29 - 6
(please note that these are marked on the Ryan Adams scale and can not be compared to an out of ten mark for any other acts. For instance, a ten out of ten Bob Dylan album would score a one on this scale)
Forgot JCN, my favourite! - 10.
Then I read the bob dylan bit at the bottom again and the scale started to make sense:
1 = best
10 = worst
Phew, thought i'd strolled into the crazy place again.
Of the albums i've heard:
3. Love Is Hell
5. Cold Roses
6. Jacksonville City Nights
I may have heard more and forgot about them. Cold roses is really good but bloated. The Jacksonville one is just too country. Also, most of his albums are kind of similar sounding. Which is great if you really like him and not so great if you feel he's just missing that certain something.
Nice one centurion.
