Ryan Adams Leads Us Home

Edward Hopper - Nightshadows (etching)

Ryan Adams' Follow The Lights (mp3), the title track of his new EP with the Cardinals, sounds like it could be one of Neil Young's recent hushed, reflective acoustic songs, not only because Adams' voice mimics Youngs' here, but also in its understated fingerpicking and its subject matter of returning to a real or figurative home:

Follow the lights that line the streets connecting telephones
Follow the lights from house to house and they will lead you home


There was never anywhere to go
There was never anywhere to go
But home

Own Follow The Lights
