I'm on the ball this week!

Did anyone listen to Neutral Milk Hotel last week? Was it not totally awesome? If you haven't given it a try yet, I highly recommend you do so!

Moving right along...

This week, I'm listening to Ryan Adams's Heartbreaker.

For those of you who have never heard of Ryan Adams, he is the former front man of a great band called Whiskytown, circa the late 90's. He then went on to pursue a solo career, during which, he was kind of a giant, ego-maniacal crap bag who pulled all sorts of obnoxious, jerk-off moves at his shows. But, these days, he's all cleaned up and you most likely know him now as the guy with the bad bleach job who just married Mandy Moore. Life's funny like that, huh?

Anyway, despite all that, it is a great album and definitely worth a shot.

UPDATE: Okay, listening to this again and it's really awesome. It almost pains me to say that. The first track starts out sounding soooo much like Dylan, it's almost eerie...
