Album Review
DJ Aporia
Reviewed 2017-02-20 
Alt-country with echoes of classic rock. Amazing record from one of my all-time favorite songwriters. David Ryan Adams (DRA) has seen a lot in the past 20 years of his career, including several excellent solo records, collabs with Whiskeytown and The Cardinals, and a chronic problem with tinnitus which prompted the live release Live After Deaf. He’s still standing, and still making heartbreak sound beautiful. Play any/all.

1. (4:00) **** Do You Still Love Me?—Straight riffing with a light synth backing. Classic rock revival.
2. (3:12) *** Prisoner—Mid-tempo. Acoustic guitars and harmonica. Romantic, taking things back to the Heartbreaker sound.
3. (3:02) **** Doomsday—World-weary, with harmonica and Ryan’s distinctive guitar tones. Classic.
4. (2:42) *** Haunted House—Spacious, uplifting. Gorgeous acoustic guitars. Something about yolo?
5. (3:05) **** Shiver and Shake—Slow, sad. Sparse guitars and light, sweeping synths.
6. (3:22) ** To Be Without You—Relaxed, more country. Blues guitar fills in the last few seconds. “Nothing really matters anymore.”
7. (4:51) Anything I Say to You Now—Driving rock sound.
8. (4:00) **** Breakdown—Minimal rock that steadily becomes more epic.
9. (4:21) Outbound Train—Tense, raw, chugging.
10. (2:57) **** Broken Anyway—Nostalgic, chiming guitars. Huge sound.
11. (3:56) Tightrope—FCC “fuck”. Solemn acoustic guitars and sax.
12. (3:29) **** We Disappear—Tight, throbbing. Settles into a nice groove. Crazy guitar effects kick in at the end.
