Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - p.79
"It's definitely one of those three-a.m.-of-the-soul affairs....The net effect is something close to that produced by Bob Dylan's '75 depresso classic BLOOD ON THE TRACKS." -- Grade: B-
Uncut - p.108
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is not easy listening, ye he's never made a more beautiful album....29 sucks the willing listener into the undertow of his private ocean."
CMJ - p.4
"His Americana-through-a-haze-of-alcohol spark is never lost among the string sections, piano twinkling and sleepy pedal steel."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.92
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he overall mood is spare and reflective, with Adams playing mostly alone, on guitar and piano, and rarely sounding better..."

Ryan Adams's third album of 2005, 29, is his only outing of the year not co-billed to his band, the Cardinals. The distinction is important--while Adams's Cardinals-backed outings allowed the North Carolina-born singer/songwriter to get in touch with his alt-country roots, 29 is a more minimalist offering that features gritty blues (the simmering title track), spare ballads (the lovely "Starlite Diner"), and emotive pop/rock (the delicate "Blue Sky Blues"). Although this disc is closest in spirit to Adams's LOVE IS HELL releases, it's a much more eclectic affair, leading the listener down many of the performer's subtler musical paths and back to one lonely intersection on the edge of town.
