Rhett Miller

July 3, 2009

rhettmillerThe fourth solo album from Old 97’s member Rhett Miller has a strong California country rock feel, augmented at times with orchestral and 60’s pop influences, with some New Wave and psychedelic elements tossed into the mix as well. The twelve tracks collected here are by turns surprising, fun and often absurdly catchy. There’s also a sardonic wit at work on tracks like “Like Love,” “Happy Birthday, Don’t Die” and “Another Girlfriend,” as well as a sweet romanticism minus overt sentimentality. In other words, it’s top notch pop for adults. The whole album is pretty consistently good, but check out “Nobody Says I Love You Anymore,” “Like Love,” “I Need To Know Where I Stand” and “If It’s Not Love.”
