Ryan Adams Videos


Ryan Adams has played in some bands and has made some new albums. He enjoys writing lots of music, and from time to time takes it to the jam. He is currently focused on doing things quietly, without much fuss, in his professional life. He hopes for a calm, cool, meaningful ride in his thirties. Ryan loves his dog and his guitar. He digs comics, coffee and cigs. His favorite foods are, whatever the soup of the day is (as long as it's maybe like a vegetable soup, or some sort of clam chowder), and ham and cheese sandwiches. When he falls asleep next to his dog, he thinks to himself that heaven is probably holding hands with your gal by a beautiful lake and laying in the grass with your dog; dreaming of the sky, clouds and the smell of grass and rain. Ryan likes to think about the solar system, the dynamics of rotation, its effects on binary star systems and if it has linear or emotional effects. He likes to read Ram Dass and loves Ram Dass' voice. He was very moved by Journey of Awakening. Most of the time Ryan isn't thinking at all about music, or the ramifications of playing music, or what that means to others. Instead, he thinks about little things like "I wonder if she would like this?" or "Maybe this is tacky, not that tacky is bad, but it just might not go with her other stuff" or "Why did I used to like the Twilight Zone so much? It gives me tremors. I mean, almost panic attacks. Why can't they just write an episode where everything works out? Where its all okay and people can just sort of be here for a second, breathe and feel some sort of relationship to themselves." You know, normal stuff. For the most part, Ryan Adams hopes that he can just play some songs and whatever. If that's not okay with someone, that's totally fine, He won't come into their homes and like, jam on top of their TV sets, or in their face wearing nothing but a cowboy belt with gun holsters and women's underwear while screaming "Listen to me...look, look what I did. LISTEN TO ME OR PERISH!!!" Then, turn into a gigantic metallic spider and wrap whoever up in electric coils and devour them, only after injecting them with poisons so their insides go to mush. Well, he's totally not into that at all, and really sort of keeps mostly to himself these days. He knows that everybody thinks that he is some kind of lunatic, and maybe that's so, but as long as it's not in someone else's yard, and yeah that happens to everybody once or twice, but really. Ryan likes Dokken a lot, unapologetically, not that anyone would have to apologize for that. He is currently looking for the deeper meaning in things, trying to belong to the light and not give into meaningless ego drivel. He really hopes for the best. The Cardinals are his new band. Cold Roses is his new jam. Laters.

Lets just say that I too have been a fan since Whiskeytown, and I have adapted to the new sounds as time has gone on. I am not impressed by this album. Some of the latest albums have had to grow on me, but I'm afraid this one will not. It seems as though the lyrics just aren't there as they have been in the past. Maybe we can hope for a better piece next time.

i love ryan adams. i've loved ryan adams since his days in whiskeytown but this album blows. seriously. it's awful. his songwriting is horrible. i'm giving him benefit of the doubt and thinking that maybe he was in a hurry? i dunno.

Let me just say that this album will be great. I've already heard all the songs live and they sounded great. Just wait till RA gets into the recording studio and cleans this up. He's one of the most prolific songwriters out there. Good CD, buy it

This review is simply a response to one posted by RA fan. I found your review above terribly offensive being from Texas. I think it put all Texans into one category and I don't believe that is fair. While yes...I am a great fan of red dirt music I do not listen to just that and thus I am familiar with enough of Ryan's work to give my opinion. I own just about every one of his albums excluding only Jacksonville City Nights i believe. To get to the point though I do believe that this is a GOOD album. It may not be his best work, but it is my opinion that it will be difficult for him to ever top most of his previous work. While I respect your opinion of this I just wish that people would not be so harsh in judging other groups of people. I don't know where your from and I don't really care, but I'm sure there are ignorant people there just as there is anywhere else. I do hope you will see this and it will perhaps cause you to reconsider your thoughts on we Texans.

this message is really just for joe.. do you know anything about music, have you ever listened to it at all? ryan throws away better songs than you have ever heard.. there are so many songs that won't even make the cd's that he puts out better than any song by creed, staind or cross canadian ragweed crap that you probably frequent in your cd player. im sure that I could get on brittany spears website and find another dissapointed joe comment about her latest cd on there too. do me a favor and not voice your opinion on matters you no nothing about. thanks

You guys are such losers to say that Ryan Adams needs to be stoned to put out good music. Have you been to his concerts or read the lyrics to his new music after sobriety? GIVE HIM A BREAK! People bash him when he's outlandish now they do when he's just putting out good music....GET A LIFE!!!!!! Go put on your headphones and listen to something more your style....like BRYAN ADAMS....
