Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

With all comments about 1989 aside, on a clean slate who's releasing the better album?

Love both as well, but I voted FJM. I like Prisoner but I have higher expectations for Pure Comedy.

Re: Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

Did Pure Comedy leak yet?


I'll withhold judgement until I hear both.

FJM's last 2 albums have been better than RA's last 2 though. TBH, its apples and oranges in terms of songwriting though.

Re: Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

I'm a huge Ryan Adams but the songs that Father John Misty has released have been far more superior in my opinion.

I don't think this standard is pricey, if I'm remembering correctly. You may be referring to the deluxe version.

Re: Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

Wouldn't even begin to know how to vote on this considering I've only heard a few tracks from either. RA and FJM are pretty radically different songwriters/performers at this point though, so I assume a lot of it would depend on my mood for the day.

FJM is a douche.

The guy acts like he's some innovative artist, then releases some soft ass honey bear bs.

Also, google image him. What a pretentious face.

He actually is an innovative artist. And come on, you'd love to rub your face in that massive beard of his! He only has a moustache now. Ticket to Ride?

Re: Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

I don't know I think "innovative" thing is irrelevant. I don't think he acts all that different than any other popular artist. They all have their quirks.

He makes records and then tours to support the records. He has the financial backing of a major record label and he puts on a show that draws well in theatres.

His songs are about drugs, sex, life, religion, etc. Nothing that hasn't been covered before. He's teamed up with one of the best producers in the country and has surrounded himself with world class musicians.

Yeah, I'm not into it, obviously.

I think it's soft as hell and insincere.

Tillman was a better songwriter before he got all FJM. He's literally a clown now.

There's some really strong, unique songwriting on both Fear Fun and Honeybear. Pretty much all of Fear Fun is beautifully written. Great lyrics. Cool grooves. Honeybear is mostly good and I thought it made for a fine follow up to Fear Fun.

I think Pure Comedy was a strong title track. The problem is every other song is just a watered down version of that. The overall theme "each other is all we've got" is on point, but how many times on one record can you say the exact same thing before it's exhausting?

And it's bizarre all the love he's getting. Blogs saying this is his best work. it isn't. Not even close, really.

Very interesting artist, but this FJM thing started much better than it's ending. I'm hoping he does one more record under this moniker then branches off onto something else. He's making boatloads of cash, so it'll probably be drawn out.

Re: Ryan Adams vs Father John Misty

I probably like Pure Comedy a bit more, but I don't understand why we are comparing them. Because FJM got all FJM about 1989?
