Agree with other reviewers that on some tracks sound very much like Springsteen, this does not spoil the enjoyment of this record in any way. After first couple of listens wasnt sure I really liked it however after a few more listens I now love it, RA has a great voice and the lyrics and music really work

Often there is now not a lot of difference between the sound quality of the CD and the vinyl issue on good equipment.
However in this case the vinyl is significantly better than the CD and is worth purchasing for fans of Ryan Adams.

This is my first Ryan Adams album. Its taken me 53 years to discover him and I have my 18 year old daughter to thank !
My daughter loves Taylor Swift. Last year she was listening the Mr Adams' 1989 album and I was surprised not only that an artist would cover a relatively new album but I also liked the way he made it sound like his own songs.
Then a few weeks ago my daughter was playing a couple of songs that caught my attention that turned out to be "Do you still love me" and "To be without you". On the strength of hearing those two songs I bought the album and I have been listening to it continuously all week.
I love the whole album and as with most great albums it rewards the more you listen to it. Great heartfelt genuine songs. Nothing contrived. I love his voice. I particularly like the production especially the guitars which sit very clearly in the mix. I can definitely hear the Smiths and Springsteen influences. It is hard to pick favourites as the whole album is strong but I already love "Do you still love me", "Breakdown", "Shiver and Shake", "Prisoner", "Doomsday", "Broken Anyway" and "Outbound Train".
So glad I take notice of what my kids listen to !

"Do you still love me, babe?" Adams asks in the opening track to his latest release, "Prisoner." The answer, as the album unfolds, is a resounding "No." The result is a breakup album for grownups.

Musically, the sound is an homage to '80s classic rock, with a side of country. This is nothing particularly extraordinary, but Adams finds freshness with achingly lonesome wails of guitar and harmonica (I normally hate harmonica, the sound of which grates on my ears like a lemon-juice-soaked guitar string on an exposed dental nerve--sister synasthetes may understand what I'm talking about--but Adams has almost reconciled me to it), and the overall effect of listening to the album is like knocking back a shot of something comfortably smoky and malted. You may know what you're going to get, but the taste is still good and the hit still gets you high every time. Overall, the album's a little more downbeat and somehow more intimate than 2014's "Ryan Adams," but Adams is still exploring the same classic American sound, to good effect.

So, if you came for the rock nostalgia, you stay for the heartbreak. To say that this is an album about things not going well is an understatement. The singer/lyrical persona starts off wondering whether he's still loved. Doubts creep in, imprisoning him in the title track and leaving him to wait for love's return in the marvelous "Doomsday." But the wait is in vain. First the singer's beloved disappears, then his friends ("My friends all disappear one by one," he laments in "Haunted House") and then he himself is in danger of following them, till in the final track, "We Disappear," he declares in the chorus that "We disappear and we fade away.

One review described this is a cross between 'The Queen is dead' and 'Tunnel of love' The dual influences of Springsteen and Johnny Marr are all over this record.The 80s atmospherics of his 2014 self titled album are continued on this one.The songs are good,but this guy's voice could turn the most mediocre melody into something affecting.

It's Ryan Adams! The tunes are of a familiar, broody yet jangly ilk, depicting his break-up. I'm a huge fan, and unlike some of his previous albums, this doesn't disappoint.

Heard very good things about this album before its release so i was already bathed in anticipation. I don't think this disappointed, still not quite at his "Love is Hell" heights for me but a very decent album nonetheless.

One of his best. Brilliant songs from start to finish. He wrote over fifty songs for this and then chose the best and it shows. If you are a fan you will love this album.
