Matthew Ryan Vs. The Silver State




Matthew Ryan Vs. The Silver State

Matthew Ryan writes the kind of songs that seem like they were destined to be used on movie soundtracks. He tells stories of small people and big ideas, set to music that is cinematic in its scope. If there were such a thing as aural widescreen, his albums would come in that format. He's often been cast as a young Bruce Springsteen, so often that he's probably sick of it (although it doesn't stop him from working a sly reference to The Boss' most iconic song into "It Could Have Been Worse"). With his raspy voice, narrative lyrics, and northeastern roots, it's easy to see how that comparison came about. It's even easier listening to songs like "American Dirt," which conjures up images of Springsteen fronting U2. With touches of piano and violin, the album manages to be both driving and atmospheric over the course of it's 11 songs. It touches on punk and country and folk, yet it still feels like a cohesive whole. In a recording career that spans eleven years and as many albums, Matthew Ryan Vs. The Silver State is the highlight of what was already an impressive catalog.

Your review is dead on. I have been listening to this album all week and, while respecting it as unique and great, I hear overtones of Bruce, U2, Ryan Adams, and Dylan - maybe even a pinch of the Cure, too. It makes for awesome stuff!
 
Matthew Ryan is a kind of undiscovered greatness only to those who haven't been following his music since, let's say MAY DAY.
So what and so it goes. I'm not from the Northeast, I'm 51, and I've looked forward to his every move. It's just damn great music every time.
