“Ryan Adams“. “Oh you mean Bryan Adams.” I hear this every time I say the name Ryan Adams. I say, “Nope. Ryan Adams.” “Never heard of him,” they say. That is your problem. I must admit that Adams does not seem like an artist I would like. His genre is often classified as alternative country. Unfortunately, his debut album Heartbreaker is not one I have heard yet. I know him from his second album Gold.
Trivia: Adams got the title Heartbreaker from a Mariah Carey poster.
Songs that I kind of liked were “Amy”, “In My Time of Need”, “Come Pick Me Up”, and “To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High)”.
Honestly, I really like Adams, but I am not a fan of country. This album goes into that territory a bit too much for me. I could not connect to many of the songs. 6.5/10.

Tim C. is a fan. When he told me about it I thought he was talking about Bryan Adams. Maybe consider a stage name, Ryan?
That is his stage name and his real name. His full name is David Ryan Adams. He has another album coming up soon.
I’m just saying maybe he should have chosen a stage name so not everyone would confuse him with Bryan Adams. Here’s a suggestion: David Adams.
