Single Review – Ryan Adams – Gimme Something Good

Ryan Adams is back with his first album since 2011 and his fourteenth studio effort which is fourteen years after his debut album. The first single to come from this is ‘Gimme Something Good’. It’s nothing special by any means. It is extremely well delivered however. A delivery of a low slung, classic American guitar track. Evocative of a lot of the late 70’s U.S rock groups and the likes of Tom Petty too. The bold reverbing guitar is broken down as into the song’s structure on the verses, but changes into a light, swelling jingle on the melodic chorus. It’s very simple in that sense and brings the focus on Ryan’s capable delivery of his lyrics. It’s not going to change the world but it’s just an honest, classic guitar track.
