Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

Nebraska only #7?
Bah.

Either/Or should have been higher, too.
Just because Dylan and Mitchell are "important"...

And I wouldn't call Blonde On Blonde a "singer/songwriter" album.

Hey, hey, hey....Joni Mitchell's Blue is totally worthy of it's high place on that list. It's amazing.

I'm also happy that both Jeff Buckley's Grace and Beck's Sea Change beat out Heartbreaker, because I personally think both those records are better than Ryan's (sorry. )

Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

I love heartbreaker... but, much of it sounds like Parsons doing Dylan Covers (or vice versa). As much as I like it that's a fair rating (and I'd probably have gone with another RA disc).

Mellencamp over Richard Thompson?... no way... and the Coug would totally agree.

Cat Power?! Seeing as that people basically know her cover albums should not be on the list, period.

Last Gripes...

Costello's King of America should be higher...

There some other no-names here as well, but maybe I'll "discover" them later.

Most of the albums are good.

Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

i think that's actually a pretty good list.

Also kind of exemplifies why everyone calls ryan a failure... His first album is considered in the top 50 albums of all time (singer/songwriter). Kind of hard to follow up on that.

LIH is spotty compared to Heartbreaker.
Minus Amy, I never skip a track on that record.

BUT:
48 Hours beats both of them.

Meh, I'm the opposite. I never listen to Heartbreaker all the way through. I hate the production too, the levels are so mixed up--the harmonica explodes and overshadows everything whenever it pops up. That's one of the most irritating things about that album.

I like the pieces of 48 Hours (WALLS, FUCK, BEST), but not as a whole.

Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

That's because Heartbreaker is recorded waaaaaaaaay better than LIH.
Less compression = good. Which is why things explode out of the mix.

I love when that happens.
But I know it bugs some people.

Recorded better, I don't know. I'm not a sound engineer, I just know when I listen to it I can't help but feel it's mixed like shit.

Love is Hell has consistent range and diversity, some parts are loud and separate themselves from everything else... But, never explode over each other.

Heartbreaker ranges from quiet to exploding within the same song. Yuck.

But, different strokes. It's not unfathomable some people would like that sort of thing. Definitely bugs me.

This is the portion of the thread where I say Cold Roses beats them all.



But, yeah...I tend to agree that Love Is Hell is a better listen than Heartbreaker for me personally, at least.

I think those are fair statements. Though I think The Suicide Handbook is his greatest work. Everything just kind of works for it. I also think that Jacksonville City Nights rivals 48 Hours in the country cd department. Like the Twighlight is one of my fave ryan songs though.

I would rank all of his cd's like this:

1. The Suicide Handbook
2. Love is Hell
3. Jacksonville City Nights/48 Hours
4. Heartbreaker
5. 29
6. Cold Roses
7. Elizabethtown
8. Swedish Sessions
9. Gold
10. Demolition
11. Easy Tiger
12. Cardinology
13. Follow the Lights



14. Rock N' Roll



I know I've probably left out a few.

Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

There are a lot of good albums there. But I feel Heartbreaker probably should have been a bit higher. Grace should definitely be higher - I would think it would be top 10.

I'm glad that Lifted was the Bright Eyes album they had on there.

I do like the way it's recorded but it annoys me at the same time because I can't listen to it on my ipod on the train or when I'm in town, or listen to it in the car because there's way too much noise around that I have to turn it up REALLY loud just to hear it and then I get an earful of harmonica and it almost makes me deaf, so I'm constantly turning the volume up and down.

But it is what it is, and I wouldn't change it, because when I listen to it at night in a quiet room it sounds FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.

Re: Heartbreaker ranks 50 in Amazon's Top 100 singer-songwriter albums of all time.

i think this is a really good list! i'm not too concerned about the running order (except if i were putting dylan as #1 i would have blood on the tracks as the album) but i think it's one of those lists where it's good even to be mentioned.

It was a stunt animal just for dramatic effect. But seriously... I LOVE Bob Mould's Workbook and always will.

The harmonica exploding into the mix is also very Dylan... Like I said, I love Heartbreaker but the influences are on it's sleeve a bit too much.

Yippie for Neutral Milk Hotel. That's an awesome album. I'm not sure it's really a singer songwriter album.
And, I actually like John Mellencamp (dodging dirty looks).
