Ryan Adams - Love is Hell, Part 1
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Ryan Adams - Love is Hell, Part 1With this eight-track EP and his excellent, recently released Rock ’n’ Roll album, Ryan Adams has suddenly flooded the market with his music. And it’s not over yet: there’s Part 2 of this project and two more unreleased albums, 48 Hours and The Suicide Handbook, due to appear on an upcoming box set. Love is Hell puzzled his record label which, according to Adams, found it “too depressing.” It’s pretty somber stuff, but piano ballads like “World War 24” and “Avalanche” rank with some of Adams’ best work.
