Too Much Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams records too much and gets criticized for it, which to me is kind of funny, because if he was an artist in the 60's/70's we wouldn't even care. You remember all the product Elton John pumped out from 71-76, well Adams can just about match that. Adams' latest, Cardinology, is good, just like his album from 2007 Easy Tiger, because it sticks to what for me he does best: Alt-Country and singer-songwriter material for our generation. But here's the funny thing. When Ryan Adams is knocking out 3 albums a year he's not very good because he loses focus. But give him 1 shot a year and he keeps the best songs for one solid release. In other words, the less Adams the better. Wonder if he's figured that out.
