  Love Is Hell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Love Is Hell is an CD by alternative country artist Ryan Adams, released on May 4, 2004.
The only new track was Anybody Wanna Take Me Home?, which was released on Ryan Adams's album Rock N Roll before as an edited version; the song on this album has a longer intro and other additions.
Later Love Is Hell was seen as the better of the 2 records and was given a rerelease.

 Ryan Adams: Love Is Hell, Part 1 [EP] (2003): Reviews
Love Is Hell, Part 1 is one-half of the planned 'Love Is Hell' full-length that Adams had intended as his official follow-up to 2001's 'Gold' until Lost Highway refused to release it intact (instead encouraging the singer to record a more upbeat LP, 'Rock n Roll').
The Love Is Hell discs are far more dense and dark, making the songs a fun challenge to crack open, though it isn't difficult to determine what a no-brainer it must have been for Lost Highway to favor the brilliant Roll over the more spotty Hell discs.
Love Is Hell Part 2 is equally enjoyable, and gives a glimpse as to what might have happened if Adams had been able to release this as a single album...the question is though, which songs would he had left off?!

 Love Is Hell Pt.1 Music at Shop Ireland
According to Ryan Adams' record label, Lost Highway, releasing 'Love Is Hell pt 1' and the impending December release of the aptly named 'Love Is Hell pt 2' as an album would have been "career suicide".
'Love Is Hell pt 1' is atmospheric, desperate and sorrowful, infringing upon the drizzly realms of Doves and Elbow.
'Love is Hell pt 1' is inspired and makes you wonder what kind of drugs Lost Highway were on to send him back to the studio to make 'Rock N Roll'.

Five months after that, the full-length "Love Is Hell", containing both EPs plus "Anybody Wanna Take Me Home" from "Rock N Roll", was released, negating the worth of the individual EPs (which were, after all, merely two halves of one album) and likely irritating legions of fans who bought both EPs.
While it took longer than necessary to have the whole bloody affair of "Love Is Hell" released as its own entity, it's hard not to view it as a companion piece to "Rock N Roll", particularly because they're two sides of the same coin.
If "Love Is Hell" has the edge over "Rock N Roll", it's because it's more carefully considered in its production and writing, and he manages to hide his allusions better than he does on "Rock", where every title and chord progression plays like an homage.

 BBC Manchester - Music - Ryan Adams - Love Is Hell
Therefore, with very few reviews, Love Is Hell became a darling of the critics, drawing rave and hyperbolic reviews, and, according to Adams, was the album he really wanted to release but was prevented from doing so because of its edgy, depressing content.
Collected and reshuffled on to one album, however, Love Is Hell is as untidy and unsatisfying (in its own way) as the Rock N Roll album.
That Adams can release three albums in one year (Love is Hell 1 and 2 aswell as Rock n Roll) shows him to be as prolific as he is daring and experimental.

 Waterloo Records - Ryan Adams : Love Is Hell
LOVE IS HELL includes the EPs LOVE IS HELL PART 1 and PART 2, available together on 1 CD.
The confusing, complex saga of LOVE IS HELL--initially rejected by the label, then begrudgingly issued as two EPs before it finally saw the light of day as a full album--would be just an interesting footnote if not for the shockingly high quality of the material itself.
While the original EPs were weighty documents in and of themselves, LOVE IS HELL's full-length version bears an even greater emotional impact, as the mood is allowed to establish itself gradually and dramatically, pulling the listener into a very personal world of gorgeously observed romantic tragedy.

 Ryan Adams: Love Is Hell, Pts. 1 & 2: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Adams originally intended Love Is Hell as his official third full-length, but his label, Lost Highway, scoffed when he handed in the tapes.
It's a shock, given that the press surrounding the Love Is Hell sessions had pegged the record as Adams' return to the sparse, two-in-the-morning flair of his debut-- and when Lost Highway postponed the recordings, calling them "too dark," it only heightened the expectations of optimistic fans hoping for a stark, brooding future classic.
For example, Love Is Hell's opening, piano-led "Political Scientist", replaces Adams' confessional, first-person narratives with a third-person tale that indicts the government for supplying cocaine, and candy factories for poisoning the environment.

Just one month after the double whammy of Rock N Roll and Love Is Hell Part 1, along comes the second part of the latter album.
Love Is Hell Part 2 is the concluding instalment of the sessions that were originally rejected by Adams' record company as being not commercially viable.
It's unclear quite why this has been split into two releases (the Kill Bill of the music world perhaps?), as with some judicious editing Love Is Hell could easily fit on one album.

 Rolling Stone : Love Is Hell Part 1 : Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Love Is Hell -- delayed and then broken up into dual EPs -- is an exquisite portrait of the artist as a tired young man: tired of love, tired of fame and, most of all, tired of lonely nights spent in the Chelsea Hotel, where this fifteen-song New York City serenade plays out.
With Adams trading in his raspy vocals and honky-tonk instrumentation for lofty croons over violins, cellos and piano, Love Is Hell aims for Nick Drake, Morrissey, and more recent Britpop luminaries (see the "Wonderwall" cover), and -- like most everything he does these days -- is sure to piss off the alt-country faithful.
The results are painful, yet exhilarating: "English Girls Approximately" is a bittersweet account of love lost (Adams' strong suit) featuring Brit bird Marianne Faithfull; the title track is a fleeting guitar-driven blast of drunken bliss, and "Hotel Chelsea Nights" evolves from maudlin torch song to sing-along spiritual.

Instead he recorded his latest album, Rock N Roll, in two weeks, gave it to the label and released it the same day as his downplayed Love is Hell Pt.1.
Love sees Adams paying homage to his favorite band, The (painfully ironic) Smiths, and goes to the extent of using Meat is Murder-famed producer John Porter.
Adams knows that he can’t be as funny as Morrissey, but on Love he attempts to be as sad, cynical, and suicidal as The Moz often seemed.

Love Is Hell was intended to be Ryan Adams' first major work since 2001's Gold, but his label balked at the record's hushed homage to pretty Britpop.
Nevertheless, Love Is Hell gets where it intends to go, because instead of Rock N Roll's tossed-off muscle-flexing, Adams supplies actual songs.
