    Come Pick This Up!

    Ryan's heart is broken, thus the title Heartbreaker. Many of the songs deal with his heart break--the lyrics and vocal delivery are so emotionial, you almost feel like your eavesdropping. Amy, My Winding Wheel, To Be the One, Call Me On Your Way Back Home, Don't Ask For The Water will just about rip your heart out! There's a few Alt-country gems including Oh, My Sweet Carolina, Bartering Lines, and In My Time of Need that aren't quite as sad, but still lyrically pack an emotional punch. And there's a pair of kicking rockers To Be Young is To Be Sad, and Shakedown on 9th Street. The production is sparse, and sometimes you can barely hear is voice, and sometimes the harmonica is so loud it startles you. I think they were going for a live sound (this was recorded in 14 days for a small independant label) and perhaps didn't have the inclination to change a thing. One more thing: Come Pick Me Up really sums up the plight of a young man who just can't stay away from the wrong woman. It is a funny and sad song at the same time, because you just KNOW he's going to hook up with the wrong gal again!

    Buy this album now!!!!

    I was given Ryan Adams ''Gold'' album by a friend and found it a refreshing change to what was being played on the radio. While at the record store I came across heartbreaker and decided to buy it. It has since become a staple in my CD collection I can not say enough about it. If ''come pick me up'' does not hit a chord with you, I will never understand why.

    A must have for any collection!

    I first heard this CD in a local record shop and was blown away. As soon as I heard Come Pick Me Up I was hooked. I've been waiting for years for someone to put this much thought and emotion into an album and it appears Adams has finnaly done it.
