Love is Hell, Part 2

Published January 15, 2004.Ryan AdamsLove is Hell, Part 2 (Lost Highway)Adams’ second installment in his Love is Hell series finds him on more or less the same page as Part 1. The songs are sparse and accomplished enough to make his whining about how rough it is to be a wealthy scenester sleeping with Parker Posey tolerable. He also loses the tenden- cy toward hand-led references that plagued his previous work. Still nothing here delivers the genius Adams keeps promising. It may be time for him to drop the “brilliant artist struggling” act and opt for “good artist doing well.” —Matt Charlton
