On the one hand, I’m still not too fond of Ryan Adams — so I’m kind of with the writer of this “11 great songs of 2014 that were buried on terrible albums” listicle about the overall quality of that album. On the other hand, however, “Gimme Something Good” is not what I would have picked as the redeeming track on Ryan Adams, because I’m even less fond of that song than the rest of the album.
“Still, this one is a stunner.” Um…no. No, it is not.
But heck, Grammy seems to like both, so what do either of us know?
