Think what you will about Ryan Adams – the tales of drinking & debauchery, the massive musical output (bordering on the ridiculous), the questionable turns in style and focus – the guy’s been all over the map… and not always successfully. But Whiskeytown, Adams’ alt country band from the 90s, is another story, and Faithless Street, in particular, is such a crowning achievement that all subsequent sins should be forgiven. Except, maybe, the sin of abandoning this perfect storm of creativity, sensitivity and subtle brilliance in the first place. Adams seemed to possess such a natural, god-given gift for country-bred acoustic storytelling that it seemed inconceivable he would turn his back on the genre. Not since the late, great Gram Parsons has a rocker so convincingly revived the ghosts of country music’s legacy of despair, hopelessness, and loneliness. Whatever you do, don’t give this a single spin and write it off as more of the same from the likes of Son Volt or Uncle Tupelo. Faithless Street is sincere, achingly real and haunting in ways that guys like Hank Williams originally intended. That Adams was able to goose the country genre without losing touch with its essence… borders on unintended genius. At Amazon, HERE.
