Ooookay. Your riyl is almost every album I love. (And, is it possible to track down the Suicide Handbook songs into the original full length? Weren't they cut up into a compilation?)
I'll be checking this out immediately.

Yeah, no way you don't love this.

And yes, the Suicide Handbook is out there as it was originally recorded. They did cut it up, and some of the songs went to Gold and some went to Demolition, but the original album is a double LP that's more stripped down and rough. It's wonderful.



Let me know what you think. And thanks, there were so many lyrics that I wanted to quote here that it was hard to just pick a few.
Any idea where I can find the double LP?

Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate it. And I would definitely recommend going back for another listen. This definitely DOESN'T mesh with the new Hold Steady, so that tight have been part of your problem. Haha



Thanks!



You can't buy it anywhere, obviously, since no official copies were ever pressed or even released on iTunes or anything. I'd recommend just Googling around for a torrent or a zip or something. Ryan put it out there himself, I think, so downloading it "illegally" is perfectly reasonable. I'd give you a link, but I'm sure the ones I downloaded from back in 2008 or 2009 are down. Let me know if you have trouble finding it and I'll just upload it for you.



Man, I'd love to see this guy live.

"Time Moves Quickly" is actually my least favorite song on the album by a fair margin. Still good, but I kind of wish "Dying Now" was the closer.
I'm listening to this album now, and totally falling in love with it. I get a Mumford vibe from his voice at times -- thiss is blowing me away.
I found Suicide Handbook, by the way. Got any other rarity Ryan Adams I should be on the lookout for?

Glad you like it. Yeah, there's definitely a Mumford sound in his voice at times.

What do you have of Adams? There's a lot of unreleased stuff. The other essential is 48 Hours, but there are a few other "lost" albums or demo/b-side collections that are worth tracking down too. I'll make a list tomorrow.
I have all of his officially released stuff, plus suicide handbook.

Also, First Defeat reminds me a lot of Nine Crimes by Damien Rice.
