Ryan Adams

Lost Highway

Y’alternative crown prince Ryan Adams amps up his hard drinkin’, chain smokin’ troubadour act and takes it on the road for his second post-Whiskeytown solo album. Forsaking Nashville’s gentrified twang. Adams rolls up his sleeves and unrepentantly dives face first into a chemically cushioned East Village cesspool, channeling an A-to-Zeppelin roll call of influences from classic seventies rock-and producing one of the finest albums of the year in the process.
