Review

Roger Wallace is not fond of the country music coming out of Nashville, and he's not particularly shy about telling you that, either. However, the young Texas honky-tonker doesn't just point fingers--he shows you how it should be done. That Kind of Lonely, his sophomore effort, builds on the promise of his debut, Hillbilly Heights, and proves he's a talent to watch. His strongest asset is his expressive voice, the effectiveness of which comes from subtle inflections and clever phrasing, not sheer power or heavy-handed drama. Look no further than his cover of Roger Miller's "The Last Word in Lonesome is Me" for proof. With a crack band behind him (steel player Marty Muse is of special note), Wallace offers a sharp collection of shuffles, waltzes, and rockabilly romps. Though he sprinkles in a few covers, the material is mostly original, and while Wallace's songwriting isn't necessarily his most remarkable talent, his grasp of traditional country subject matter makes it far from a detriment. --Marc Greilsamer
