Find Me On:
This is more like a “cool to awesomest” list, except I strongly believe Cold Roses should be first. I came upon Ryan Adams kind of late in the game (mid-2007) and I mostly listened (and still do) to live versions of everything, so some of the studio versions sound weird to me. Cold Roses tunes are gorgeous on both the studio version and live, so to me it’s the album most “true” to Ryan’s sound, albeit together with the Cardinals.
Ryan’s solo work has been great, but MAN I miss the Cards!
