Album Review: Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – Cardinals III/IV

Album Review: Ryan Adams & The Cardinals – Cardinals III/IV
BY CHRIS COPLAN





This year could have gone down as the year Ryan Adams went metal. Instead, thanks to a mid-December Hail Mary, 2010 will go down as the year the rocker released the eagerly-anticipated Cardinals III/IV. A relic from the same sessions that gave us 2007’s Easy Tiger, Adams’ fifth album with The Cardinals yields a two-disc effort made up of everything we love about Adams and a few hints on where he’s going next.

Disc one is, quite succinctly, nearly perfect and a mesmerizing culmination, with little filler and each song seemingly striking at the same familiar, comfortable chords that Adams and company rose to notoriety with. Post-breakup sorrow appears to dominate the emotional narrative throughout disc one, as demonstrated in “Dear Candy” and “Kisses Start Wars”. That first track is a synthesis of the kind of minimalist, driving guitar line common in any Tom Petty release, while the vocal delivery and pain is something only a student of Neil Young could deliver. As a relationship crumbles, Adams reveals that the whole thing never meant anything, fighting back his own pained howling. Decidedly more composed and cerebral, “Kisses Start Wars” is one of the more direct examples of Adams’ obsession with The Strokes, a fascination he only halfheartedly expressed on Rock N Roll. More Young-ian vocals couple sweetly with a danceable rock groove, full of lighter, breezier guitars when Adams’ high-pitched vocals stifle that burning pain in his guts.

Adams is his gloriously self-deprecating self in “Happy Birthday”. With effervescent, melodious guitar and baseline synth tacked on top of a fairly sullen and downbeat rhythm, Adams paints a pathetic picture of himself: the concerned ex-lover trying to not be concerned, dressing his worries up in wonderfully-bad pop lyricism. “Happy Birthday, I’m your birthday cake/and I’m lit/and I’m late/and I’m tired/You tried to escape/I wanna fight/But I’m tired…,” he sings. Adams stretches his wings closer to the folk end of his sound with “Crystal Skull”. Now using a lonesome acoustic guitar and a whiskey-soaked pedal-steel, he tells of a place he and his lady love go, a place where he knows she’ll disappoint him, yet he can’t avoiding heading to every night. While these tracks are clear stand-outs, each and any track of disc one could readily tell the same story: Adams is back doing what he does best; and, oh boy, does he do it brilliantly.

Shifting gears, disc two isn’t quite as easy-going; less immediate in its appeal. At its most basic, disc two finds its true worth in tracks like “P.S.”, which take the anguish of the first disc and give it a slightly more upbeat rock treatment. More Strokes-ian ditties like “My Favorite Song” show up as well. “Icebreaker” feels like Adams re-tackling his metal phase, only this time with more of his own well-honed sensibilities. Here, he makes a big jam track that features angelic female backing vocals and the kind of heavy swagger much of the first disc completely misses out on. “Star Wars” is a fraud, something that starts out like any Adams love song/ballad–infused with more of that mainline New York guitar rock vibe–before morphing into an ambient, guitar-driven guitar barrage. With Adams wailing away Star Wars references, the rest of the track mutates an initially sweet attempt to woo a beautiful girl into Adams’ uniquely geek-ish mating call.

All that’s nothing, however, compared to the disc’s opus, “Kill The Lights”. At nearly eight minutes, it’s the closest thing to being metal without the weird concept. A bizarre experience powered by an especially feisty Adams, minutes of jangly rock fury melt into an exploration of guitar and open air that further degrade into… nothing. Silence, though, is deceiving as Adams ends the cut on a high-note of rebellious energy. The appeal on disc two, especially on the set’s final two tracks, seems to be rooted in their near-absurdity, as opposed to the joyous simplicity of the preceding group of songs. It’s clear that Adams spends a lot of time in the studio growing and expanding, which can only be good, but one still has to wonder the merit of being exceedingly odd when reputation is unique and experimental enough.

Regardless of what it will be known for, 2010 was a good year for Ryan Adams fans. With music from the nerdy recesses of his mind, to a triumphant release that happily displays some of his more off-center offerings, Adams continues to be a presence in music, this year and beyond.

Bullz-Eye’s Favorite Albums of 2010: Staff Writer Mike Farley

Bullz-Eye’s Favorite Albums of 2010: Staff Writer Mike Farley’s picks
Posted by Mike Farley (12/07/2010 @ 10:00 am)

It was an interesting year for me music-wise. So much great stuff passed my desk or by e-mail from publicists, but something odd happened: my old PC started getting so slow that I literally could not listen to my iTunes and work at the same time. Makes writing CD reviews tough, but makes listening while I work to get a feel for new music even harder. I persevered, playing stuff in the car and also, finally, getting a super-fast new PC recently. My joy of listening to my iTunes catalog and discovering new music has returned. And so, I give to you, my Top 10 albums of 2010:

1. The Silver Seas: Chateau Revenge
There are two songs on this album that can bring anyone from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs in no time flat: “The Best Things in Life” and “What’s the Drawback.” Daniel Tashian and company continue to make some of the best music that, unfortunately, most people have never heard. So hey, this holiday season, do something about that. Go buy the Silver Seas’ music, and tell them I sent you.

2. Rooney: Eureka
Bullz-Eye Music Editor David Medsker: “Hey, I think you’ll like these guys.” Me, after hearing band: “Um, understatement.” It’s just good, unadulterated pop/rock – no whiny kid voice and no Auto Tune.

3. Grace Potter & the Nocturnals: Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
It’s nice that this indie queen is finally getting her due with Disney-owned Hollywood Records, because she’s got the goods. She can write, sing and play. Did I say sing? Yeah, Grace can REALLY sing.

4. Leeroy Stagger: Everything Is Real
You don’t have to be Canadian to dig a good alternative twang artist like Leeroy Stagger. In fact, you have to just dig that fact that he can make music this good.

5. Rogue Wave: Permalight
This band just oozes cool without anyone telling them that they’re cool. This album is a bit different than previous work, but when you’re awesome, you’re awesome.

6. The Album Leaf: A Chorus Of Storytellers
This group continues to make mesmerizingly hip music to chill to. Bonus: chicks dig the Album Leaf. Well, my wife does.

7. Heart: Red Velvet Car
Back with their first studio album in almost a decade, and their best since maybe the ‘70s.

8. Miggs: Wide Awake
Pure pop/rock along the lines of Butch Walker with a bit of New Jersey-ish Bon Jovi vocal tone.

9. Bachman & Turner: Bachman & Turner
Speaking of their best in decades, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunite for a new incarnation of BTO with new awesome songs.

10. Aqualung: Magnetic North
“36 Hours” is another top song of the year on another strong effort from Aqualung.


Foxy Shazam - Oh Lord

Bullz-Eye’s Favorite Albums of 2010

Ya llegan las primeras listas del año!!!


Bullz-Eye’s Favorite Albums of 2010: Staff Writer James Eldred’s picks
Posted by James B. Eldred

I would like to preface this list by saying that I have not yet listened to Cee-Lo Green’s new album nor Kanye West’s latest – which everyone and their mother is telling me is a freaking masterpiece. So a more apt title of this list might be “The Top 10 albums of the year that I got around to.”

1. Foxy Shazam: Foxy Shazam
If I had my way this list would have one album. That’s right, this album is so good that it is actually the 10 best albums of the year. Hell, it’s the 20 best albums of the year, and the five best albums of 2009. Foxy Shazam aren’t just a band; they are a force of nature that will kick your ass, steal your lunch money and make sweet love to you all at the same time. “Count Me Out,” “Bye Bye Symphony,” “Bombs Away,” the list just goes on and on, every song on this album could be a Top 10 single. Yet somehow none of them have been. America, you’re letting me down even more than usual. There is no greater band on the planet than Foxy Shazam. They are here to take over the world and be the biggest rock stars since the Beatles. So if you all could just accept that already and buy this album now, that would be great.

2. Goldfrapp: Head First
Most artists who try to recreate that classic ’80s dance sound usually crash and burn, sounding more like a parody of the music they’re trying to replicate (Owl City springs to mind) than the real deal. But Goldfrapp pulled it off with this release, channeling the soundtrack to “Flashdance” and Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” (in a good way!) on instantly danceable tracks like “Rocket” and “Alive.”

3. The Sword: Warp Riders
There are not enough metal bands making concept albums about intergalactic space battles. Thankfully the Sword realized this, and updated their mythology-based themes for the 21st century, changing their focus on medieval wizards and warriors to space-faring heroes and transcendental beings who traverse space and time. The fist-pounding metal that accompanies the far out narrative is pretty damn good as well.

4. Coheed & Cambria: Year of the Black Rainbow
Okay, maybe there are other bands creating concept albums about intergalactic space battles. But while the Sword is like “Aliens,” direct and to the point, Coheed & Cambria’s conclusion to their epic Armory Wars saga is like “Star Trek,” “Star Wars” and Rush’s 2112 all rolled into one incredibly overblown and bombastic delight.

5. Sleigh Bells: Treats
What is it about Brooklyn and male/female electronic duos? First Matt & Kim, and now these two. But while Matt & Kim delivered the audio equivalent of a big hug with Sidewalks, Sleigh Bells’ Treats is like a sonic punch in the face, a bizarre combination of industrial, punk and straight-up noise that is louder and more original than any other record this year.

6. Matt & Kim: Sidewalks
Not everyone seems to be jamming on this, the third release release by the Brooklyn duo. But why not? Sure, they opened up their sound a bit and don’t have the same lo-fi charm they had on their first two albums, but with fun-beyond-fun tracks like the opener “Block After Block” and “AM/FM Sound,” who cares? The funnest record to come out this year.

7. Nitzer Ebb: Industrial Complex
This has been out in some form since late 2009, but it didn’t get a wide release until this year, so it counts. Besides, it would be a shame not to shine further light on this shockingly stellar reunion record. Before this, Nitzer Ebb hadn’t been in the studio in 15 years, and they hadn’t been making music worth listening to for even longer. How the hell the could reform after all that time and not only make a good record, but a great record that stands up next to their best, is a welcome surprise.

8. The Orb Featuring David Gilmour: Metallic Spheres
The Orb are well known for creating soundscapes that take their listener’s a trip that is best traveled while on drugs. Taking that into account, its amazing that it took this long for them to team up with someone from Pink Floyd. A trip so deep that you might not even needs heavy medication to appreciate it.

9. Girl Talk: All Day
Opening Feed the Animals with a mash-up of UGK’s “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You)” and the Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin” was smart. But the opening notes of All Day, which mix together Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” and Ludacris’ “Move Bitch,” are pure pop genius. Girl Talk didn’t do anything new with his latest all-illegal release – he just did what did before, masterfully mixing together dozens of songs all at one, better than he ever has before.

10. Diskjokke: En Fin Tid
I like Tangerine Dream, okay? There, I said it. And this Norwegian DJ and producer made the best Tangerine Dream album since 1979 with this minimalistic and beautiful collection of downbeat but cheerful-sounding dance songs. Not for everyone, obviously, but it was almost tailor-made for me.
