CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

A near perfect album by a performer who seems, at least for the time being, to have learned to focus his wide-open talents on one narrow vein of material, and in the process has struck pure gold.

80
Consequence of Sound

Ashes & Fires remains compelling throughout thanks to its peaks and valleys.

80
musicOMH

None of the songs sound out of place, there's no self-indulgent noodling, and it genuinely feels like his most complete record since 29.

80
NME

‘Ashes & Fire’ is a stunning, stripped-back, heart-on-sleeve record that re-captures his irrefutable songwriting ability.

79
Beats Per Minute

Ryan Adams manages to escape Ashes & Fire unscathed, avoiding his own biggest enemy from previous works: himself.

94
An Almost Masterpiece that proved that Adams still knew how to make a great album.

Best Tracks: Dirty Rain, Ashes And Fire, I love you but I don't know what to say.
Worst Tracks: I guess Parts of chains of love
