iTunes Review

Self-produced and self-released, The Dreamer reveals the strongest country influence yet in the solo work of Old 97's leader Rhett Miller. Where previous solo albums focused on his pop side, The Dreamer recalls his Texas roots and comes closest to the music he's made with his band. The hooks are still present for "Out of Love," "Sleepwalkin'," and "Swimmin' in Sunshine," but there are also nice country sways, alluring slide guitars, or sweet acoustics and harmonies that sing Miller back home. Rosanne Cash duets with Miller for the gorgeous "As Close As I Came to Being Right." Elsewhere, Rachael Yamagata and The Spring Standards' Heather Robb join up to support these rustic-sounding tunes. Miller's production is spot on. The piano pop of "I'll Try To" gets a barroom feel. "Marina" strums with urgency, while its melody line is enhanced by strategically placed double-tracked vocals. "Love Grows" throws together a stirring pedal steel guitar line. "Picture This" and "Complicated Man" further show Miller's ability at taking the tried and true and injecting it with feeling and new twists and turns.

Rhett Does It Again

Rhett's best solo album yet. I just can't get enough of his songs. So wonderful. The whole album is just fantastic. Picture This is one of the nicest songs I've heard in a long time.

New Rhett!

Always awesome, need I say more?

Another Great Addition to Rhett's Collection

This is a great album with a little more country twang than his last solo albums which had a more a rock and roll feel. Vocals are great, as always. My favorites (although all the songs are great) are Lost Without You, Love Grows, Picture This, and Sweet Dreams.

Texas native Rhett Miller is perhaps best known as the frontman of the Dallas-based alt-country band Old 97's, although he also pursued a critically acclaimed solo career during the 2000s. Formed in 1993, the Old 97's built a devoted following with their blend of country and power pop influences, which won the group a brief stay on the roster of Elektra Records. All four members also pursued side projects, but Miller's solo career captured the most attention, with the literate songwriter training...
