I don’t know about danielm but I can vouch for bakamomo. He’s my friend & we communicate pretty regularly outside of this board. I’m pretty damn sure that he’s not Ryan Adams.
Ryan Adams would never cosplay as having a successful marriage and children.
I like a few of the songs (Rollercoaster, In the Blue of the Night, In the Meadow, Run, This is Your House, and At Home With The Animals), though it seems, just like the Chris album, that it’s got that distinctive RA mastering where the drums punch you in the face and the cheap acoustic guitar sound is also very present. Which is weird, because I remember reading about Strangers Alamanac, and apparently the acoustic guitar on that is some cheap $100 thing they bought on the spot because of course the good one(s) were trashed when they needed them, yet it sounds beautiful.
Or maybe I’ve crossed over into Snob Land since I bought my Gibson and Cordoba acoustics.
Anyway, another relatively uneven album that has a lot of good songs, but could be maybe half the length with some more polished production.
PS: I heard In the Meadow (was it in this thread?) was one of the last Cardinal songs; it’s a nice jam, but I can’t for the life of me follow what RA is singing – like it doesn’t fit the clearly more jammy sound of the music.
sorry to disappoint, I’m not Ryan. Was just giving my two cents on a Cardinals track as there was a thread asking about unreleased material. Understand Ryan is no longer enjoyed on these boards, he hasn’t been for some time. I just periodically check in to see what hate is being peddled on his new stuff, some perspective and check out the new music suggestions.
Nah, I am not Ryan. I just stated that “In the Blue of the Night” is a mighty fine turd and that there are some great songs on the album, but that it does not work as a double. My opinion pretty much lines up with Nebulance’s.
However, there is another dude on the forum who is middle-aged and has stated that he has an ex-wife. Do not know if he jogs specifically, but he claims to be exercising a lot. Also pours a praise over a lot of promising young female country artists. His negativity might be a smoke-screen. Mr Adams’ predatory strategies might have evolved.
Well, I should have known that you shouldn’t joke about someone being Ryan Adams.
not really. i am trying and listening. just not inspired by it like i am other artists, currently.
but it’s cool if you like it!
thanks for sharing it.
