Ryan Adams Is Gonna Kill The California Girls

I've been reading the new Sonic Youth biography Goodbye 20th Century and thinking a lot about dissonance and necessity. What do you think of Ryan Adams' cover of Expressway to Yr. Skull? I've been thinking of this cover for a while now. Not sure why, but it's been churning around. Maybe because Adams' band (not sure if it's the Cardinals on this one or what) doesn't seem to get the dissonance or rotor-wash effect of certain parts of the song? I don't know. Ok. Good talk.
