So, Ryan Adams has a new album coming out in September - what are the odds that it will be decent, ya think? Dude is insanely hit and miss.

Furthermore, what are your top three favorite albums by him?

Mine:

1.) Heartbreaker
2.) Cardinology (has just recently grown on me, so, so much)
3.) Gold

I'm excited for the new one but who knows if it will be any good. I wasn't impressed with his last album at all and this is the first time it's ever taken him more than a calendar year to put out a follow-up. I know music has become much more difficult for him because of his health... still, I am hopeful. He is very hit or miss but when he hits, he strikes you hard.

1. Heartbreaker
2. Cold Roses
3. Jacksonville City Nights

I actually think Gold and Cardinology are two of his weakest efforts

or if Whiskeytown counts, Stranger's Almanac is a great album

Love that dude. I even like Rock n' Roll which tends to be commonly loathed. One hell of a pastiche-album, that.

Heartbreaker is probably his most consistently great album, but I find myself listening to stuff like 29 and Suicide Handbook alot more.

Such an underrated singer too. It doesn't get much better than this:

what's there to discuss? heartbreaker is a classic and all his other stuff is pretty great to mediocre.

Yup. He's been very good live every time I have seen him though.

Yeah, it might just be that with both of those albums, there are a few songs that kill me. La Cienega from Gold was my wife and I's first dance song (hardpressed to find a more gorgeous song that one) and a few offa Cardinology have really gotten me good lately. "Fix It" and "Cobwebs" have always stood out to me, but this one kicked me upside the head fully unexpectedly recently:

I've only caught him once, and it was a trainwreck. He was here in SLC in 2008 (?) at this venue that is a turd sandwich. Outdoors, they sell these wildly overpriced season tickets to folks that come to concerts as something to do while they spread out their 10'x10' blanket to put out the wine and cheese spread for themselves and their two spoiled rich kids next to the neighbors blanket and talk thru the whole damn show.

He cranked through about 14 songs, with a few snyde comments in between, and then took off after 80 minutes and said with such an awesome tone: "It was really, really exciting to play for you guys tonight." Zero encore. Couldn't blame him, but it did suck for those that were genuinely excited to be there: which I'm sure he felt disconnected from, as they let the VIP season ticket yuppies in first, so they're taking up the front 70% of the venue.

Here ya have it, hombres - fully worth a download. It's unfortunately big enough to require a RAR-ing, just a bit over 2GB. But they're all there, artwork n' all.

finally heard this and it suckkkkkkks balllllllls. 1984 is at least ok. read a couple of interviews and it sucks him and the cardinals never got along, basically cold roses, 29, jacksonville and cardinology 1-4 are all the ones i love (besides heartbreaker) and i think that is also everything they put out together

I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about it. I really liked 1984, and the Jacksonville 7" is supposed to be more in the vein of Cold Roses which is my favorite of all his albums. I heard the self titled album is supposed to be MUCH better than the last handful of albums though.

Yeah, they probably should have just quit after the 2005 trilogy. They were never going to beat Cold Roses or Jacksonville City Nights. They should have quit while they were ahead.

It barely even looks like him at all. He needs to tame that mane.
