The prolific Ryan Adams (& The Cardinals) follows the late June '07 release "Easy Tiger" with a new seven-song EP, "Follow The Lights".
The new songs are very good, with "My Love For You Is Real" particularly standing out. Of the other tracks, RA & The Cardinals cover of "Down In A Hole" by Alice In Chains carries on Ryan's tradition of taking iconic songs and making them his own. His reworking of his own "If I Am A Stranger" manages to make a great song even better.
Adams' older fans who still clamor for his drunken days of punk-inspired, sloppy recordings will be sadly disappointed. Ryan's recent sobriety continues to pay big dividends in great songwriting, fantastic arrangements and outstanding musical production.
