Jacksonville City Nights by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals (CD)
This product is currently sold out.
"Arguably the most eclectically prolific artist since Prince, Ryan Adams continues his chameleon revivalism with his most straightforward country music to date. Having evoked the inspiration of bands ranging from T. Rex to the Grateful Dead on previous solo releases, the former Whiskeytown frontman here channels the likes of Faron Young on 'My Heart Is Broken', while framing the shot-and-a-beer opener, 'A Kiss Before I Go', with honky-tonk piano and pedal steel. "Seems like I'm always movin'," he sings amid the rockabilly kick of 'Trains', as the album finds his restless muse ranging from a dreamy duet with Norah Jones on 'Dear John' to naked vulnerability reminiscent of John Lennon on "Silver Bullets." Only Adams would cut a track titled 'The End' and sequence it second on the CD, or a song called 'Peaceful Valley' and inject it with so much emotion."
