In September of 2005, I must have been a little depressed, because I went on a Ryan Adams buying spree, purchasing Jacksonville City Nights, Gold, and Heartbreaker all in one trip. I fell in love with Jacksonville, forcing those around me to listen to the sad melodies over and over. Gold got stolen from my car, and I'm not sure I noticed.
Heartbreaker is another story. This one has gotten a few listens, and has sat on my shelf, or in my car, for the better part of the past two years. I know it's one of Adam's saddest bastard works, and I knew I'd love it if I only gave it a chance, but I just couldn't get into it. I was just never in the mood.
Well, good news for all you Adams fans out there. Heartbreakers been in my car for a week now, and I love it. I can feel myself slowly becoming more drawn to Carolina, and wishing everyone would just leave me be so I can drown my sorrows in whiskey or something.
