Can't wait! Hope it's better than that last piece of shit he released.
Certainly gone a more rock n roll direction, in a good way this time.
Easy Tiger's his first dud, and he's earned enough good will for me to remain faithful. Also, a dud album that has 'I Taught Myself How To Grow Old' on really isn't so bad.
it's Gold without the bloat.
a new ryan album in six weeks? fuck yeah!
looks like Lost Highway are putting it out, they must've resigned him then.
Don't see it myself, whilst overlong, Gold is basically pop gems. Or at least songs trying to be pop gems. ET, quality aside, is far more country. I just think he sounds tired on it. In fact he mentions bed or sleep or being knackered in almost every song now I think of it!
both are slick country-pop albums. don't get me wrong, i think gold has the better songs, but it's also got far too many songs overall. like many of his records. if Easy Tiger had been Gold / Love Is Hell length it would've been a real chore, but as it's over in - what - 35 minutes it works for me.
glad to see he's keeping the length down here again...
