15092014 - Ryan Adams "Ryan Adams"

It's been 14 years since Ryan Adams released his wonderful debut album "Heartbreaker", and this is his 14th album. There's been highs and lows, but it seems that the general consensus is that he could have used a filter since the feeling people have (myself included) is that he records and releases every single song he writes. Of course going eponymous is a statement in itself, especially at this point in his career, so the question is if this is the ultimate and definitive Ryan Adams record? Probably not, but it's still one of his best releases in years. And opener "Gimme Something Good" is simply stunning! There are some lovely mellow acoustic moments here, but my favorites are the ones where he turns up the volume on that guitar and rocks out. You never went away Ryan, but welcome back anyway!
