Cold Roses.

If you were to cut 4 or 5 songs, it would be worthy of praise.

29 is just not that great.
It's a drag.

JCN- because I can't get into the whole honky tonk, fakeness of it. Oh yeah, and it made Rob a criminal.




AND I am not afraid of any of you.

Re: Most Overrated Ryan Adams album

I voted 29. Its a good album, but its not great by any means. Its an hodgepodge of tracks. Some great (Elizabeth), some awful (Voices).

Re: Most Overrated Ryan Adams album

You're all gonna hate me on this one.

See, I would've voted for Cardinlology, but in my opinion (and most others), it's not highly rated anyway.

While I truly love some cuts off Heartbreaker (Shakedown, To Be Young, Amy), the album never really did it for me as a whole. I don't know, I guess it's just too slow, or maybe I need to give it a few more listens.

I'm sorry, Wok. Please don't hate me.

Shakedown was the last Ryan Adams release I bought and I agree, as a whole it really does nothing for me but 29 does even less.

I vote Heartreaker. All the praise this album gets suprises me. It's an album I skip a ton of songs on. BUT the good ones on there are really freaking great, but as a whole...NO.

Re: Most Overrated Ryan Adams album

I went with Gold. It's a fun album, but it has its share of filler, and I can't stand his voice on this album. It's just so whiny, and it sounds like he's trying too hard.

Hopefully no one here is crazy enough to think Stranger's is over rated.

Its hilarious that 29 is the most overrated and the second most underrated album.

Heartbreaker. I really love it, but I feel it often gets put on a pedestal that it doesn't really deserve.
