Ryan Adams 

Love is Hell Part 1

Published December 04, 2003.Ryan AdamsLove is Hell Part 1 (Lost Highway)Ryan Adams is great. Although his albums can be nauseatingly pretentious, he has written some truly great songs since his solo debut in 2000. This trend continues with Love Is Hell. Far outdoing the album it was bumped by to follow up 2000’s Gold, the EP is a murky collection of tear-strung dream pop. The highlights “Political Scientist” and “Avalanche” concrete the fact that beneath the façade of ill-advised tattoos and held (but not inhaled) cigarettes is an honestly talented songwriter. —Matt Charlton
