CD reviews for Ryan Adams and the Cardinals

Cardinology CD review - Cardinology
The follow-up to 2007's "Easy Tiger" sees Adams and his stellar alt.-country crew picking up where they left off. From the opening notes of the warm, roots-y Born Into A Light, Adams and guitarist Neal Casal work off each other perfect while Jon Graboff adds some sweet pedal steel accents. Meanwhile, songs such as So Easy have a tad more bite to them, but Adams' knack for wearing his heart on his sleeve has never been better. Following a soulful, Ron Sexsmith-leaning Fix It, »»»
Cold Roses CD review - Cold Roses
On "Cold Roses," Ryan Adams & The Cardinals channel the influences of The Band and The Grateful Dead into a work that primarily chronicles the way places and objects can mysteriously trigger specific memories. There are plenty of locations referenced here, such as "Meadowlake Street," "Cherry Lane" and "Magnolia Mountain." Floral-centric lyrics also abound on tracks like "Rosebud," "Cold Roses" and "Blossom." These various songs are reminders that the unavoidable scent of a favorite flower, which »»»
Jacksonville City Nights CD review - Jacksonville City Nights
You'd think an artist as prolific as Ryan Adams has been in the last few years would find it difficult to stick to a certain kind of genre over the course of an album. And indeed, his sprawling major-label debut, "Gold," included everything from a Stones-y rave up to soulful ballads tinged with Van Morrison. After spelunking into 1990s style rock on "Rock n Roll" and dirgeful melodrama on "Love Is Hell," however, Adams is making some of the most focused - and best- music of his career. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
Concert Review: Not only is Turner traditional, he's popular – Every time Josh Turner reached for some of those wonderful subterranean low notes, which he often pulled out during his enjoyable night show, it was like a superhero applying a superpower. He didn't need this extra advantage to please his audience; he has so many quality songs stockpiled in his catalogue already doing the job.... »»»

Right or Wrong CD review - Right or Wrong
Dave Adkins stepped to the plate and swung for the fences. His monster swing found the sweet spot and delivered a game-winning home run. "Right or Wrong" is filled with hot picking, great vocal presentations and a risk or two that absolutely pay off. If Adkins was trying to outshine previous releases, he may have done so.  »»»
