From the website of an upcoming benefit show:

The show will feature the debut of new songs from his as-yet-untitled new album due for release in the autumn alongside classics from his extensive catalogue. The new record reunites Adams with legendary producer and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Glyn Johns (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Clash etc.) who also produced his last album Ashes & Fire

I've been on a pretty big Heartbreaker and Gold kick the past two weeks. Although I'd liked Love Is Hell a good deal, I never checked out his other stuff. Needless to say, I guess, I'm excited to explore the rest of his discography (which, yeah, will probably take a while) and for a new album...

Love Is Hell will always be my favorite of his, and in my top 10 favorite albums ever.

Needless to say, I can't wait for more RA tunes. Pumped!

Dude, check out Cold Roses ASAP. Haha.

I think I remember him saying a while back that "Ashes and Fire Part 2" was in the works. To be honest, I'm kind of hoping that's not what this is (I've had mixed feelings about that record since day one). But I'm always open to new material from him.

Ya, cold roses is about the only thing else you need to check out. Demolition and Rock n Roll have some quality tracks though.

I mean, Cold Roses is terrific (and probably the best thing he's ever done), but 48 Hours, The Suicide Handbook, Jacksonville City Nights, 29 and Easy Tiger are all phenomenal as well. Not to mention the slew of great unreleased b-sides, random recording sessions and informal "albums." Dude's got a lot to offer to a new initiate.

Downloading now. It was on my radar (I feel like I've seen you or others post about it a good deal in Adams discussions), but I'll just skip to it now.

Been listening to Dirty Three's Horse Stories, per your recommendation, just by the way. Amazing stuff.

Can't wait for this. I seem to like Ashes & Fire a good deal more than most people.

Yeah, I've raved about it pretty extensively. Haha. It's one of my favorite albums of the aughts. Also, make sure you grab Side 4 of Gold. The released version is missing the final quarter of the album (it was originally planned as a double, but Lost Highway sawed off the last five songs and condensed it to a single disc to save money). And even though "Goodnight Hollywood Blvd." works well as the de facto closer, the combination of "The Bar is a Beautiful Place" and "Cannonball Days" is the lavish conclusion that record feels built toward.

Glad you're enjoying it, man. Beautiful album.

What do you not like about that album?

Ironically, what turns me off is the same thing that caused it to be so well-received by a lot of reviewers: it lacks the erratic, spontaneous unorthodoxy of his previous work. Which, to me, is a big part of what makes those records so special. Each of them--even the much-maligned duo of Cardinology and Rock 'N' Roll--has enough unpredictable twists and turns and such an unconventional methodology behind them that they feel very uniquely Ryan Adams. Ashes doesn't. It's reined-in, smoothed-over and all too typical of standard singer/songwriter fare. I think the songs are all of a certain quality, and occasionally stellar ("Dirty Rain"), but they lack that singular, off-kilter creative spark that makes him such a distinctive artist. I wouldn't say I dislike the album, but for me, it's often inoffensive to the point of being mundane.

That's just me, though. I know you and a lot of other folks disagree.

I hope it's not like Ashes and Fire. I remember listening to that album once and never picking it up again, even though the three songs I like from it are still really good
