4.0 out of 5 stars
like a sunflower, its both a grower and worth the wait, 12 Dec 2005
after what i thought was the best album of the year (cold roses) and an album that had i thought was 'interesting' (jcn) i looked forward to '29s' release.
29 reminds me of love is hell, as the better songs take a few detailed listens to get you hooked, but once you realise what they are, you realise they are brilliant, such as 'strawberry wine' and 'carolina rain'. 'The sadness' one of the other stronger tracks, echoes of jcn, whilst moody 'night birds' and 'blue sky blues' are also strong tracks.
I will have to listen to it further to appreciate it even more, and i advise others to do the same.
One regret, is that there no 'magnolia mountain' esque tracks present, but 3 albums in 1 year, Ryan Adams has manned up.
