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.
