  • Summary: Well off his 3-disc-a-year pace, Adams celebrates just his first release of 2007 with the 13-song 'Tiger.' Sheryl Crow guests, and The Cardinals once again provide the backing.

  1. Easy Tiger keeps it simple: beguiling melodies, an ace band, and Adams' elastic tenor.
  2. The Sheryl Crow duet works where his Norah Jones collabo didn't; I Taught Myself How To Grow Old is classic tortured Adams, and Pearls On A String is a rewarding reflection of the time he spent hanging out with Willie Nelson.

    The real triumph of Easy Tiger is less rooted in the sound, more in the attitude. [Jul 2007, p.114]
  4. Like The OC, Easy Tiger manages to be pleasurable without ever being interesting.
  5. Despite its occasional charms, Easy Tiger feels like an uneven piece of work.
  6. Adams often finds himself revisiting his past glories on Easy Tiger. [Jul 2007, p.178]
  7. Tiger plays like a huge pastiche of past releases.
