“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.
