I mean, Heavy Orange is alright, but there are other songs that could have made that list.

Outside of TBY, are any of those songs really rated?

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

It would be ballsier to say tunes like Strawberry Wine, Easy Plateau and Games or something.

Other than TBY, the other songs are painfully mediocre. They aren't going out on a limb saying they are overrated. No one will get offended at those.

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

If it was 2 minutes shorter, I would agree with you.

I mostly hate it because on the vinyl, it's right before Let It Ride so every time I put it on, i go "I just gotta get through 3 more minutes until the awesome starts."

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

The only thing I agree with on this list is "Fix it" but I don't think it sounds anything like Don Henley.

...Tim Simmons, I think Wonderwall is overrated too. I thought I was alone in that.

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

Kind of a pointless article (Tim's overrated list is better). The underrated was indeed not rated at all, and was more a name drop of hard to find stuff.

I'd never heard heavy orange, so it was worth it for that, though.

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

While 29 is Dead derivative, I rather like the performance and delivery. RA sneer-yelling "to where the morning don't come" at the end is pretty strong. Better than Jerry's mopey vox!

I'm with you guys on this.

All the songs in the underrated list are either unreleased or very limited release, so it's a no-brainer that they'd be under-appreciated.

And I love the lyrics in that song. 29 is awesome. Nobody's ever given the Stones shit for being Chuck Berry derivative.

Re: MAGNET picks the most overrated & underrated Ryan Adams songs

How are most of these songs overrated? Do his songs play in the radio or in jukeboxes for you guys? The only place I ever hear hype is here, and the RAA. But that is what I come for.

And I love 29, my favorite part is the line, "and he lay in that box, just like a pile of bones."
