Customer Review

on 6 February 2004
My first encounter with a Ryan Adam's album was a chance purchase of Gold because I thought the reviews on the sticker sounded good (don't mock,it was also the only way I probably ever would have bought 'O' by Damien Rice). Since then, I've bought Demolition, Love is hell (1&2) and Rock and Roll, and then when searching on Amazon saw some good reviews for this album. This album is all the other reviews say and more. If you like Ryan Adams then you will love this album, and it will become one of your all time favourites.
As an all round album it is fantastic, of the 14 tracks I would only ever really skip two (Paper Moon and What the Devil wanted), and some of the other tracks I think rate up with the very best of Gold, Demolition and Love is Hell. Don't wanna know why, Crazy about you and Bar Lights are very catchy upbeat numbers, but it is definitely the slower numbers that mark this album out. Reasons to Lie is a taste of what is to come, but fails to scale the heights of my personal album favourties,Under Your Breath and Easy Hearts. Under Your Breath is a haunting, beautiful song which suits Adam's voice to perfection. Easy Hearts is quite a contrasting ballad. Bigger in sound, with the voices of Adams and Cary complementing each other with a beauty that would shine even without backing, I believe it is a song that Adams will probably never emulate whilst solo. If the money isn't right, can I be your's tonight, is a line that is bound to stick in your head, and this is an album that should certainly stick in your collection.
