Though Ryan Adams, with or without The Cardinals, is one of my favorite musicians, I’m still working my way towards owning his entire catalog. The man is prolific, and I don’t have the disposable income that I once had. So when I stumbled upon the vinyl version of 2007’s Follow The Lights for seven dollars, I needed to finally buy it.
2008 was a pretty outstanding year for music, filled with a lot of my old favorites and also debuts from musicians with which I fell in love. Get your singalong voice ready, for it is time to attend Rock ‘n Roll Church.
My favorite releases for 2006 seem to alternate between the All-Time Favorites I am constantly trying to shove into your hands, and the lovely gems that I keep meaning to own”¦ after which I will then metaphorically foist upon you like the rest. Let’s get to it!
Reviewing 2005 in music surprised me somewhat because I’d forgotten how many of my favorite albums were released that year. So please, let me metaphorically shove them into your hands.
