SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on May 23, 2005 at 4:25 pm

Sound: Classic alternative country (rock, country and folk blended together), mostly favoring the sedated and soothing side of the genre, with lovelorn, longing and plaintive lyrics
Look for: A healthy dose of dreamy, lap steel guitar twang
Note: It’s a “double LP,” but each disc is under 40 minutes, so it’s actually around the length of some bloated “LPs”
Heavy Rotation tracks:Sweet Illusionsicon“; “Magnolia Mountainicon
Medium Rotation tracks:Blossomicon“; “Easy Plateauicon“; “Life Is Beautifulicon“; “If I Am a Strangericon“; “Let It Rideicon“; “When Will You Come Back Homeicon
Recommended: Disc 1 gets a little too brooding after awhile, but on the whole this may be Ryan Adams’ prettiest and most relaxing album.
Grade: B+ (Disc 1 = B; Disc 2 = B+)
