I was listening to what I guess is the new cd on his site, and is all of his music got the country kind of sound to it?
Cause I thought he was like a indy singer song writer type thing...

I like his last two albums with The Cardinals.

But none of it compares to his stuff with Whiskeytown. My advice, go back and stock up on that stuff. His harmonies with Caitlin Cary are so good they bring tears to the eyes.

i really like Love is Hell -- i think its basically the best Smiths CD since The Queen is Dead.

I enjoyed his album, Gold. His new one is great too though.

And if anyone finds his Whiskeytown stuff, by............other means, let me know.

Rock n Roll was a great album.
Actually, I love all his work

The best was Whiskeytown's pneumonia. He has a hard punk album called The Fingers

Gold is my favorite. Cold Roses is pretty good too.

I use a lot of his other albums as background music.

"Gold" is is his best solo album, although there are a couple of great songs on "Heartbreaker."

For that country sound, the latest one is "Jacksonville City Nights" with the Cardinals, but I echo the love of Whiskeytown's "Pneumonia."

He goes back and forth between honky-tonk and rock - all pretty good, if you ask me.

While you are at it, check out David Gray if you haven't heard anything by him. He and Ryan sound similar, except Ryan Adams is a little more country.
