Ryan Adams Hits His Stride With Easy Tiger

Filed under: Music Review — N @ 3:38 pm

Having released a ton of material in a variety of genres over the last few years, Ryan Adams has finally hit his stride with his new album, Easy Tiger. Dropping his dabbling in rock, hip hop and straight country, Adams has created the country rock album we all knew he was capable of making. For fans of Adams’ work with Wiskeytown this is the album you have been looking for since the band’s demise.

Easy Tiger is Adams at his most consistent. He balances the album nicely with ballads like “Everybody Knows,” “These Girls” and “Off Broadway” with rockers like “Goodnight Rose” and the jokey “Halloween Head” tying it all together with slower tunes like the Sheryl Crow duet “Two” and “Tears of Gold.” While a song like “I Taught Muyslef How to Grow Old” seems thrown in overall the album is very well done.

Adams is on tour now supporting Easy Tiger and his shows have been clear and hit filled. All this consistency may have something to do his sobriety over the last year. Whatever the reasons, Easy Tiger is an excellent record.
