Albums Galore

Heaven is a Ryan Adams album. The latest, Cardinology, is proudly mine as of 1:30pm today. I fed it straight into my laptop at work, put my headphones on, and tried to concentrate on actual work!

There are 12 tracks – at 40 minutes it’s a little short (a 3 hours Ryan Adam’s album would be too short for me!).

I think this is my favourite album from RA & The Cs so far! The music and lyrics are sublime; some songs are gentle, others twangy, some are quiet ('Cobwebs' is beautiful), and some have a U2 like quality (other reviews have made similar comparisons).

This week I also treated myself to the new Bloc Party and to the 2007 album The Boxer, by The National. I am impressed by both! I am loving Bloc Party more and more each album. There is no disappointment whatsoever.
