Ryan Adams - Down in a Hole

Ryan Adams and the Cardinals have released a cover of Alice in Chains' Down in a Hole on Ryan's latest EP, Follow the Lights. I like this version. In my opinion, it is no better or worse than the original. You can't compare the original angst/grunge context of Alice in Chains to the current style of a singer like Ryan Adams. In my opinion, it just simply works - this is a strong cover of a classic tune from a difficult time.

Just grabbed it out of the mail box :-) haven;t picked up mail in a few days. I'll probably give it a spin after the weekend. Thanks!
