It’s been three years since we’ve seen any new material from Ryan Adams. That’s an insane drought from a guy that released a five new albums a year for most of the decade. Sure, there was Orion (get it? O Ryan)…but does that really count? Then there was the Pax-AM single series…but then again…I don’t even know anyone who was lucky enough to score a copy of any of the singles. And, even now, the new Ryan Adams & the Cardinals album, III/IV is really just a bunch of leftover tracks. Leftover Ryan Adams is like leftover pizza…at worst…it’s still pizza.
