OK, OK, I’ve been doing this Twenty Albums in Twenty Days thing on Facebook, but I figured, what the hell, we’re in lockdown so I might as well share those albums on here, too.
I mean, now is as good a time as any to listen to music, right?
We have weeks and months stretched out before us, so we can make our own soundtracks to isolation, and try listening to music that perhaps we previously ignored.
So, Day Two: Heartbreaker by Ryan Adams
I discovered this album in the aftermath of my best mate’s death. It seemed to speak to my grief; the melancholy of Heartbreaker is the soundtrack to my devastation and loss. I became a big Adams fan, but none of his subsequent albums match the raw emotional punch I felt with this one.
