4.0 out of 5 stars
Great!!!!, 31 Aug. 2007
In all honesty, i was slightly surprised by the critical praise heaped upon this album. I am a huge Ryan Adams fan and I thought 29 was great, if not a little slow and slightly repetitive. However, although this is not my favourite Ryan Adams album, it has at least three of the greatest tracks he has ever written (I Taught Myself To Grow, The Sun Also Sets & Halloweenhead)and definitely feels more focused and, for want of a better word, fresher than some of his previous albums. I would recommend this to someone who has never heard of Ryan Adams and is curious as it is perhaps more accesible than his last couple of albums, but still has those beautifully melanchonic songs that make it essential listening. 4 out of 5.
