You had to know Ryan Adams couldn’t sit in one place for very long and just promote an album, that’s not really his style. So here he is again, just a few months after releasing “Easy Tiger” with an EP- bringing his band The Cardinals along for the ride this time- “Follow the Lights”The EP is two reworked Adams tracks and a great cover of “Down in a Hole.” Keeping up with typical Adams standards this is a good set with 7 good songs, all well written and recorded. My personal favorite is the “Down in a Hole” cover because in a sense Adams made that song his just by putting his unique twist on it. I still like the Alice in Chains version better but they’re not even close to the same song because they’re recorded completely different.What I admired most about “Easy Tiger” and what’s carried over into this EP is Adams is starting to target a more general population now instead of his core group of people. It never hurts to gain a fan and Adams could/should do that with his past two releases (if he’d promote them a little bit.) Nonetheless, Adams returns with more stellar work, and continues to tromp every other band/musician not just in number of releases, but in quality of those releases. If you’ve never been into Adams this is as good of a place to start as any.
