TK #60: Ryan Adams – Gold (2001)

Adams is famous for throwing stuff against a wall and seeing what sticks, and never has more stuck than on this album, which is loaded with songs that would have been radio staples had they come along thirty years before (and thanks to Tim McGraw, “When the Stars Go Blue” achieved that fate this decade). “Harder Now That It’s Over” is a classic heartbreaker, and “New York, New York” took on its own spooky aura in light of the events that transpired just after its release.
