This year's Cold Roses found Adams returning by way of the Dead's American Beauty to the twang-laced sound that his fans had been wishing for since his Whiskeytown and Heartbreaker days.
Jacksonville City Nights does Cold Roses one better, largely leaving the alt-country behind in favor of pure country. Bookending the album with the ragged lurch of "Don't Fail Me Now", the song establishes the sense of stasis that runs through most of Jacksonville 's songs, songs where neon bar signs are all that break literal and figurative darkness and where voids were once filled with good women.
That's nothing Ryan Adams The Cardinals Jacksonville City Nights for Adams, who's always excelled at documenting lack of momentum and romantic aftermath, but here, those threads tie the disc together nicely. The rest of the album, though, is still pretty strong, especially as it starts to stray from traditional country structures. Overall, Jacksonville City Nights is a fun listen, even if the subject matter is often Various Studio One DJs than joyous.
For one thing, the Cardinals are a good fit as Adams' backing band, making their way Alexander Truth quiet meditations with the same confidence that they hit the rails on Ryan Adams The Cardinals Jacksonville City Nights barn-burning track like "Trains".
It's also good to hear Adams with the twang back in his voice. He may feel, as he once told an interviewer, that Whiskeytown was "a creative prison", but his voice and persona practically nestle themselves into countrified arrangements.

From national origin myths to austerity policies, racism permeates the fabric of the world's 'friendliest' nation, argues Rinaldo Walcott and Idil Abdillahi in their work, BlackLife.
Mike Edison's biography on the Rolling Stones' Charlie Watts, Sympathy for the Drummer is a full-throated assault on the notion that, in music, more is better, and that perfection is a friggin' virtue. Andrew Patterson's debut film, The Vast of Night, compels its audience to listen to a radio conversation and watch a mysterious play.
Fellini is the master of blurring the lines between the real and the surreal, demonstrating the overriding imbrication of the familiar and the fantastic. The Rise of Skywalker has been trumpeted as the last in the Skywalker saga. But with Disney's and this trilogy's annoying tendency to resurrect, it may never end. These are the weakest moments here, but they're also the exception to the rule, since most of the songs here represent a number Sean McCann Ten Impressions for Piano Strings classic country archetypes, from the opening pair of barroom anthems, "A Kiss Before I Go" and "The End," to his "Dear John" duet with Norah Jones or the light hillbilly swagger of the galloping Pete Terrace Et Son Orchestre Le Boogaloo and how "My Heart Is Broken" is sweetened by just enough swings to give it a candy coating but not enough to turn it into countrypolitan schmaltz.
As good as these cuts sound, it's still hard not to shake the suspicion that Ryan Adams is primarily a pastiche artist, since it's not only easy to Ryan Adams The Cardinals Jacksonville City Nights influences throughout the album, but because the atmosphere of the record makes more of an impression than the individual songs.
