Produced by Ethan Johns (who has worked with artists as diverse as Kings of Leon, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones and the Vaccines), this is an alternative-country music affair, said to have been inspired by Ryan's breakup with girlfriend Amy Lombardi (listen, or just at look at the title of track four to see why), and a very heartfelt, sincere collection of songs which all flow really well, and each one is placed perfectly.
The aforementioned track 'AMY' is one of the most touching songs about yearning for a former partner that you'll probably ever hear, but is just one of several highlights. 'Oh My Sweet Carolina', a truly beautiful song about feeling homesick is easily among the best of Ryan's many emotional songwriting victories, and 'Come Pick Me Up' and 'In My Time of Need', later covered by Joan Baez also stand tall.
With the release of 'Heartbreaker', Ryan Adams, whose fans base continues to grow all of the time (his most recent album 'Prisoner' has become his highest charting in Britain, going straight into the charts at no.3!), established himself as a first rate singer-songwriter. Here we can make comparisons to somebody like Bob Dylan (see the track 'To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High)'), or Nick Drake especially, and not the popular rock singer who goes by a very similar name, but is a completely different musician.
Ryan's soft yet powerful and always assured vocal delivery on his confessional, straight-from-the-heart songs, mixed with the beautiful stripped-back music craftsmanship behind him, is truly something. When this man writes and sings his tales of despair, pining, and loneliness, you just know without question that he means and feels it. 'Heartbreaker' remains a masterpiece, and no self-respecting fan should be without it.
This 2015 re-issue benefits from remastering.
