Ryan Adams "s/t" LP

$ 21.00

"Though the overall sound of [s/t] may be a mask, hiding lyrics that are every bit as heartbroken, confused, lost, and struggling as ever, with those metaphorical fingers crossed behind his back, the gift that Adams has given fans disguised as a Steve Earle or John Hiatt record isn’t hard to extrapolate from an otherwise uncool recording style. As Earle, Hiatt, and many others have proven in the past, rock and roll faithfulness isn’t necessarily antiquated, especially in the hands of a captivating songwriter like Ryan Adams. The result is an honest record disguised as a lie, a personal release that can be mistaken for a retreat, an essential album passed off as the alternate take for the one he really wanted to make." - Consequence of Sound
