- Ryan (not Bryan) Adams – any good?
Yep, few dodgy albums, but ‘Gold’ is an amazing album in terms of its range and versatility. 17 tracks and when listened as a whole album not a duff one amongst them. He does appear to be one album on one off in terms of quality, but undoubtedly a very talented man. Heartbreaker is also deff worth a listenPosted 2 years agofunkmasterpSubscriber
Ashes and Fire and 29 are also good. Just try and avoid his rock albums. For some reason he occasionally thinks that he’s The Strokes and releases really bad albums like Easy Tiger. He’s best when his music has a touch of country in it.
He’s quite prolific and releases a lot of stuff so bound to be hit and miss to a degree. Still a very talented artist though and well worth listening toPosted 2 years agosenor jSubscriber
I think he’s brilliant. A bit like a C&W Prince .Posted 2 years ago
His records take a few listens but every one has absolute gems on it.
Even his rock albums & the online metal thing!
Live ,he’s incredible , witty and used to be very unpredictable.(he was fond of a party & arguing 😉 ).
I like his lyrics (which is a rare thing these days) – very honest how he feels and he “speaks” to me.
No doubt about his talent, but I really think he needs to filter his output, he records so much and then just releases it all, so you have to wade through so much to get to the good stuff. I prefer his stuff with the cardinals, fav Track is let it ride. Saw him live and tbh it was but dull, he said nothing to the audience all night!Posted 2 years agojohnx2Member
He’s great live – see him if you get the chance. Not sure what l think of his Taylor swift covers album. The songs are good…
Edit to add – just seen the didn’t talk to audience comment – he’s a little, erm, edgy. Threw a right wobbler last time he was in Leeds, later said sorry, improvised songs etc. You came away with an impression of the guy alright…Posted 2 years agoOscillate WildlyMember
yes he’s absolutely amazing, hes been around for donkeys, numerous bands fronted by him, and all of his solo stuff is just pure class
he made a rock n album to appease his label, he hated it, hated doing it, but its one of my fave albums, hes just a cool as **** legend.
so underrated / goes under the radar, hes up there with the best of all time for mePosted 2 years ago
