Nice reimagining Posted by: from: on Ryan Adams takes these songs to a different place by reimagining them as he would have written them, slightly brooding with his signature reverb-drenched vocals over a four piece rock band. Clearly there was more time given to some songs than to others, both in the tracking and mix phases, but I find the entire album to be a good, cohesive listen all the way through. He exceeds expectations, actually, by managing to get through all ten tracks without any hint of irony, taking the songs (which really are quite solid) to a totally different place. Worth buying.

It's a cover album, but an interesting effort Posted by: from: on Unfortunately the story behind this album might be more interesting than the actual results. First of all, I am a long time Ryan Adams fan and not a Taylor Swift fan. Of course, I have a casual awareness of her music mostly from award shows and hype so listening to this album the first time through, I wasn't very familiar with the source material. I have since rectified this oversight. The story behind this album, as far as I have read: Ryan Adams was splitting up with his wife and while on tour listened to Taylor Swifts 1989 album as his "break up" album. This is a very common thing for a music lover to do. Ryan would cover a song off of the album and would tweet or Instagram the results to Taylor Swift. She was flattered and loved it and encouraged more so he eventually covered the entire album. So now, that I have that precursor out of the way. I like the album, but it isn't a typical Ryan Adams because I just can't believe his delivery of the lyrics. I appreciate the artistic exercise and know that this album will probably age much better than the material that inspired it. This isn't essential Ryan Adams, but if you are a collector, it is a fun album that shows this artist can almost do no wrong. ALMOST.

Ryan visits "Nebraska" Posted by: from: on When this CD was first created, he said he was recording the songs in a Smiths manner. To me it has the stark, lean sound of Springsteen's "Nebraska". If you've heard Taylor's CD far more than you care to admit, this treatment definitely presents the songs in a different light. She can write, and Ryan shows that.

Ryan does Taylor Posted by: from: Daytona on Ryan does his rendition of 1989 songs and makes them seem like his own. I havn't been a Taylor Swift fan, but after hearing this I had to get her original. That Good!
