Released less than six months after 2007's EASY TIGER, this EP finds the usually restless alt-country artist Ryan Adams sticking with that album's surprisingly laid-back aesthetic. Adams seems happily entrenched in the 1970s-era Laurel Canyon sound throughout much of the short set (see the wistful title track and the lilting "My Love for You Is Real"), with the only real curveball being the singer/guitarist's woozy cover of Alice in Chains' "Down in a Hole," which, despite its grunge origins, fits the mood of the release quite well.
