BBC Review

Blessed with the most confusing name in music today (try telling your friends you like him, without soliciting gales of laughter), young Ryan is currently a song writing fool. A year on from his classic Heartbreaker he gives us this 70 plus minute epic (also available in a limited edition with a CD of 5 extra tracks) and has, by all accounts, just completed its follow-up Pink Hearts. His live shows are witness to this prolific urge, as he dips into his ever-present notebook to play "one I wrote, just yesterday". In fact, recently a man attacked him on stage, enraged that he stopped the show to pen a new song! His life, it seems, is a constant source of inspiration.

Adams often attracts the odious tag of "Alt Country" for his Americana-soaked musings, but while songs such as "When The Stars Go Blue" contain a folksy integrity inherited from his old band Whiskeytown, the overall feel of this mighty work is that of plain old Rock. The plaintive lilt of "Wild Flowers" and "Answering Bell" hark back to previous work, but his muse seems to be undergoing a transformation on the raucous "Tina Toledo's Walkin' Blues". It's pure Sticky Fingers-era Stones with its slide guitar and Jagger swagger. Backed by band that includes Stephen Still's son Chris, much of this 16-song opus rocks with an intensity that reflects his relocation to the faster environs of LA.

The subject matter is still that of broken relationships but, whereas before the sense was of an unremitting resignation, now a lighter note leavens the confessionals. He's just enjoying life a little more, as he says on the hypercharged opener "New York New York" - "And love don't play any games with me anymore, like she did before. The world won't wait, so I better shake that thing right out there through the door." The lazy melancholy is still there, but mixed with an offbeat humour as on the touching "Sylvia Plath". The only problem is quality control - an editor is undoubtedly needed for this boy with the blues. Yet that doesn't stop Gold being one of the most uplifting of this year's releases. --Chris Jones

Venturing into a solo career in 2000 with the tremendous tenderhearted ballads of 'Heartbreaker', Ryan Adams displayed an all-too-seldom-seen touch of musical genius, leading to mass critical acclaim. Now in 2001, with the release of 'Gold', he has progressed still further from the alt.country roots of his 'Whiskeytown' days, and assembled a truly stunning follow-up.
This album has an enhanced polished feel to it that his previous outing lacked, which is in part due to him being signed up by the artist-driven Lost Highway label. Also evident here is a much broader scope of emotion. Yes, there's the ever present laid-back lamenting prevalent throughout 'Heartbreaker', but this time that's accompanied by some resounding rock tunes ("Firecracker", "Gonna Make You Love Me"). And with Ethan Jones producing it's no wonder he's sounding better than ever. His star is certainly in the ascendancy!
There are echoes here of some of the greatest musical giants of the 20th century. The opening song, "New York, New York" is pure Dylan, and its poignancy is all too apparent following recent events. "The Rescue Blues" and the epic "Nobody Girl" have strong undertones of the Stones, while "Answering Bell" could well have been written by Van Morrison. His solemn, soulful singing encountered in "La Cienega Just Smiled" and "Goodnight, Hollywood Blvd" is moodily beautiful. What a voice! Believe me, there is absolutely no filler during this entire 70-minute journey from New York to LA.
This album will definitely generate a much bigger, broader following for him, and it can't come soon enough. When you discover Ryan Adams, you'll find it hard to let go. His passionate style is so irresistibly contagious. Buy it, play it, love it! You won't regret it.

Ah... Ryan Adams, the man with truly sickening amounts of talent, showmanship, panache and a liberal dash of genius. The man who picked up the alt.country batton from Uncle Tupelo and took it to stratospheric heights with Whiskeytown's Stranger's Almanac and the timeless Pneumonia. The man who began his solo career with the essential Heartbreaker. And the man who has now, with Gold, illuminated the music scene with a collection of songs so bright, so utterly joyous, as to expose his contemporaries as the talentless charlatans we all knew they were.
With Gold, Adams has outgrown the alt. country genre that fed his talent. The sixteen songs here display their influences proudly. "Answering Bell" takes a bow to Van Morrison, "Tina Toledo's Street Walkin Blues" swaggers into view with such a Stonesy raunch it could have been cut during the "Let It Bleed" sessions,and "Nobody Girl" is a typical Neil Young-esque epic.Yet throughout, the music is very much of Adams' making, whether it be the delicate "La Cienega Just Smiled," the strained "Sylvia Plath" or the awesome "When The Stars Go Blue." Yes, his ifluences certainly inform the music on offer, but never trespass upon Adams' own rock vision which is brilliantly realised throughout the album.
The talent of a generation, the album of the year, and the saviour of rock n' roll? What do you think?

Gold was released by former Whiskeytown frontman Ryan Adams in 2001 and I purchased it on the back of a few decent reviews in various music magazines. Thrown into the 'Alt-Country' bracket, this is actually very musically diverse ranging from wonderful ballads such as 'The Stars go blue' and 'La Cienaga just smiled' to numbers that really rock ('Firecracker', 'Rosalie come and go').
Written almost entirely by Ryan Adams and producer Ethan Johns (more recently the man behind the Kings of Leon), for me this album is one of the greatest albums of the decade so far. The album is very accessible, probably more so than his previous, equally fine effort 'Heartbreaker'. Other highlights for me are 'The Rescue Blues' (a song that reminds me a little of the Rolling Stones) and 'Touch, Feel and Lose'. With seventeen songs and at around seventy minutes long, this album also represents real value for money.
This is a great starting point for anyone who is curious to listen to Ryan Adams' music as I have found his recent work to be a bit hit and miss, but this is probably to be expected from a man with such prolific output (he has released 7 albums & 2 Eps in 5 years including side projects). I don't normally enthuse too much or over-endorse products as I think it can be a bit misleading but this is an album that deserves to be heard by anybody who has a broad taste in music. One of the decades hidden gems.

Ryan Adams is the same age as me. 27. And I have lived with him through his music for about three years now. Whiskeytown's Stranger's Almanac, an album I picked up in a New York bargain bin for 5 bucks, was my introduction, my tonic, my addiction. The record reminded me of how I felt when I first listened alone to REM's Life's Rich Pageant - it was that good. My ability to market this great album was limited by its tendency to float into country ( it even has a fiddle on there for God's sake! ) but the Gram Parsons in me kept the faith.
Late last year, Adams returned with Heartbreaker, documenting in a 14 day studio stint how he fell in and out of love in Nashville. As I said at the time, "One not to listen to in the dark.". But, somehow with time, I find this one of the most uplifting collections of songs I have. His voice seemed more singular, more assured., like he finally understood and accepted just how good he is. Earlier this year, Whiskeytown's final album, Pneumonia, was released and was just as warm and melodic as its predecessor. So, with two albums already under his belt this year, surely a third was too much to ask?
But, in truth, a third is maybe not enough. Gold is a fabulous record. Country and rock do not hold Adam's muse no more... soul, blues, even the late night croon of early Tom Waits give full reign to Adam's wonderful voice. He has never used his higher register before but this tremulous instrument envelopes songs like 'Answerin' Bell' and 'Wild Flowers' in velvet. Evidently Adams has discovered Neil Young and Van Morrison. So those of you who wallowed in the melodic misery of Heartbreaker are well served.
But there are surprises.
