Nov 21 2007, 12:54 di SepulchreFri 16 Nov – Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Ryan Adams
So, I finally got to see the great Ryan Adams live, playing music. With the Cardinals of which we must of course mention. Official artist name: Adams and The CardinalsRyan Adams and The Cardinals
Let's get the unimportant if interesting stuff out the way first. Sartorially again he's borderline irritating. A cool black leather jacket and then a bobble hat. A bobble hat. I knew it was fecking freezing in London this weekend but inside it aint.
The first quarter was a bit of a rush through to be honest. Ryan didn't say anything in between songs. And to be honest his musical variations of the recorded to the live put me off somewhat. I can see why the critics latch onto this, he's so damn good that he can completely change the essence of a tune but because it's never better than the original it's irritating. In fact I'd say it's borderline showing off. Fair enough if it's good and not just bathetic.

Lug 17 2007, 10:26 di ffarffWhat is it about Ryan Adams that makes me feel comfortable?
I grew up with country music in the house but its not just that.
Listening to Sit And Listen To The Rain, Wish You Were Here, Wish You Were Here, Sylvia Plath or the ol' favourite of everyone When The Stars Go Blue just calms me down so much.
But then Valhalla,Love Is Hell, This Is It, Note To Self: Dont Die fire me up completely.
He's so good, he has a song for every moment on your life and every mood, and they all fit perfectly. Honest and heart-felt.
I hope he releases his average 2 albums per a year for a long time to come.

Ott 9 2006, 14:28 di KuutarPost your top fifteen bands/artists, the first song you heard of theirs, the song that made you fall in love, and your current favorite.
In some cases it is impossible for me to remember which was the very first song I heard, so I have to say the song that I remember hearing just before I actually got into that band/artist or something like that. And I have to say that there’s a few bands/artists I don’t actually love, I’ve just listened to them in some point a lot...
1. Ryan Adams
First song I heard: This is impossible to remember, but I say This Is It, ‘cause it must’ve been one of the first ones.
Song that made me fall in love: I could name any song on Heartbreaker, but I pick Oh My Sweet Carolina
Current favourite: Elizabeth, You Were Born To Play That Part
2. Neko Case
First song I heard: Porchlight
Song that made me fall in love: Hold On, Hold On
Current favourite: Same as above.
3. Tori Amos
