Album Review

Two decades on from his debut LP, Webb Wilder continues to work hard, rock hard, grow big, and wear glasses 'cause he needs 'em, and More Like Me, his first album in four years, finds him easing up a bit on the gas but still delivering a satisfying fusion of rock and twang. Wilder has a reputation for wearing his sense of humor on his sleeve, but More Like Me finds him taking things a bit more seriously than usual with his original songs — "Too Cool for Love" and "She's Not Romantic" are bittersweet tales of couples who can't see eye to eye (the latter recalling Nick Lowe's recent work in its deceptive simplicity), and "Come Around" is a beautiful but moody number dominated by some great layered guitar work.

With his group, Wilder combines the surf guitar of the Ventures with the rock roots of Duane Eddy, drawing on the feel of both country music and film noir. Though sometimes bordering on the gimmicky, the band is quite humorous yet plays serious music. It Came from Nashville featured a cover of Steve Earle's "Devil's Right Hand," appropriate because, like...
