5.0 out of 5 stars A fine return to form, 29 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ashes & Fire (Audio CD)
I was starting to fear for Ryan Adams. In my opinion the last great album he made was 29. I never really warmed to Easy Tiger, less so to Cardinology and consequently I missed iii/iv altogether. Though the former two were decent offerings they failed to deliver in the way the artist had done with the likes of Love is Hell, Heartbeaker etc.
Having read many glowing reviews of this album I was drawn to buying it, believing a return to the glory days in the offing. I am not disappointed. On the first listening it sounded good, if unspectacular. However, the more I listen to it the more I love it. There are no weak songs on this album at all. Personal highlights being 'Rocks', 'Chains of Love', 'Invisible Riverside' and... damn! they're all good! 'Ashes and Fire' stands amongst the other albums mentioned here as a return to the real quality not seen from the artist in some years. Lets hope this is a pointer to the future.
