Album Review: Rock'n'Roll by Ryan Adams

Mediocre, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 40
Based on rating 2/5

Ryan Adams increasingly resembles an American Robbie Williams - an attention-seeking narcissist with the musical consistency of a Now That's What I Call Music compilation. After a promising alt-country debut, his 2001 breakthrough album Gold was a breathless, shameless trolley dash through the classic rock section, copping moves from Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Neil Young among others. On Rock N Roll, a record as vacuous and eager-to-please as its title, he is still ticking boxes like a radio programmer in a hurry.
