You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a Ryan Adams blog, given the last few posts here… but c’mon, we all know I have major love for the guy. So, it is with much joy that I present to you (courtesy of NPR), the full stream of Ryan’s new album, Ashes & Fire.
A full review will be up sometime in the next week (I’ve got a few things on, weddings and the like to plan… so I want to take my time with this one); but I will say that, on first listen, this is definitely one of Ryan’s most relaxed albums I’ve ever heard. I don’t want to say “grown up”, but… well… the guy’s all grown up. Standouts are immediately the previously mentioned “Lucky Now“, “Come Home”, “Save Me”, and the simply sublime “Kindness”.
