What I know is there has never been a Ryan Adams record quite as strong and together as Easy Tiger; it’s got enough blue-eyed, blue-steel soul (with the faintest country tinge) to make me think of both Marvin Gaye and the Righteous Brothers.

The typical Adams song is about love and loss, and for that, one has no further to look than anything from his last two albums.

Adams briefly flirts with his alt-country past on "Do Miss America", but quickly dances away from it by adding chorus lyrics -- "Hey, come on everybody do Miss America / Hey, when she goes down it's hysterical" -- which make the song sound more like a parody of John Mellencamp than a new original.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Gold, Ryan Adams, CD
Adams, who got his start with North Carolina heroes Whiskeytown, made his solo debut in 2000 with the aching tales on Heartbreaker, which earned him mountains of critical praise and expanded upon his cult fan base.
But to listen to Gold, Adams' first solo album for his big-league sponsors at Lost Highway, one senses that there are about a dozen other musicians Adams would love to be, and nearly all of them were at their peak in the early to mid-'70s.
Adams' final album with Whiskeytown, Pneumonia, made it clear that he was moving beyond the scruffy alt-country of his early work, and Gold documents his current fascination with '70s rock.
