Re: Pick 6 Most Overrated Ryan songs

i feel like people are fucking up this thread...it’s supposed to be universally loved ryan songs you hate, not just shitty ryan songs.

Re: Pick 6 Most Overrated Ryan songs

Pretty much half of Heartbreaker. Sorry, the album as a whole is overrated, I rarely stop and listen to any of those songs when it comes up in shuffle. I'd say Bartering Lines and In My Time of Need are the only ones I don't skip anymore.

Re: Pick 6 Most Overrated Ryan songs

To Be Young is a shit song. I made a copy of Heartbreaker that does not have that tune.

ALL OF GOLD. That album does not exist to me.

Isnt "best stuff" subjective though? Everyone is going to have a different opinion on what they enjoy. It's interesting hearing different opinions on what people like/dislike.

OK, but are we off track? Critics, fans, and Ryan himself haven't spoken that well of Cardinology. Not liking it doesn't make it overrated.

I, to this day, love Crossed Out Name and Cobwebs. It will never go down in history as his greatest work, but I'd argue that Cardinology is underrated compared to the criticism it receives.

I like to To Be Young, all Dylan posturing aside.

Gold, put me off from being an RA fan for some time, but I do like it now. It's definitely that cute rough boy playing to a more mainstream audience. I'd say even with NY,NY getting thrust into a post 9/11 anthem, Gold is not overrated. Most of the biggest top 40 or pop country hit panderers couldn't get tunes like NY, Firecracker, Stars Go Blue, La Cienega, Rescue Blues, etc. accomplished on one record.

I prefer the "off the beaten path" Ryan, but Gold - like it or hate it - is the work of someone who is outrageously talented in sound and in song craft.

Halloweehead is on Easy Tiger.

IMO, Cardinology is a great album but it gets trashed because we all wanted another Cold Roses/JCN/ET/29. (Except for that one dude who hates JCN). Cardinology is none of those but it is pretty damn awesome. On my list, I rate it higher than any release recorded after it, aside from 1984 and Jacksonville singles.

Re: Pick 6 Most Overrated Ryan songs

Gold is the only album of his that I do not own. I do like some of the songs, but they are better on Suicide Handbook.

Cardinology sounds like a Wilco album if they would have made one between two visits to the bathroom while on diararhea. God, that album was such a huge let down after all the build up. “Honest to God, you know, I’ve never made a better album, you know. It’s real Magick! When I’m out of the contract, you know, I’m gonna stop recording, you know, under my own name. Just The Cardinals, you know. Neal is my best friend, real guitar God. Bringing the Magick jams, you know.” Two months later it was over. Ryan got married. The Cardinals sucked according to him and we were left with a shitty album to close things off.

Agree to disagree then.

I'll take Cardinology over any Wilco album aside from Being There.

We are two different worlds you and I, since I consider Being There to be their least interesting album together with AM.

Haha. So interesting how opinions can be so different, in this case the exact opposite.

The whole Wilco catalog kinda bores me now except for Being There, which gets me in the feels. Jay Bennett's call to glory.

Well kinda, mostly because I know it would trigger some people. But it’s just my least favorite of his. Love Dead John, and some songs like The Hardest Part, The End and Trains have nice qualities to them. But I find most of the songs kinda boring and forgettable. It just crosses that country line a little much for me.
