Seventeen years into his recording career, having ventured into everything from rockabilly to Clash covers, Dwight Yoakam is far past the Buck Owens-carbon copy stage. Though a couple of songs on POPULATION ME do tip their cowboy hat to the classic Bakersfield sound, the album explores a wide variety of Americana styles. The opener "The Late Great Golden State" resembles nothing so much as an early Eagles country-rock classic. At the opposite end of the record, closing tune "The Back of Your Hand" is more of an introspective, singer-songwriter affair. In between, Yoakam teams with none other than Willie Nelson on the powerful broken-hearted ballad "If Teardrops Were Diamonds," and proves himself the reigning king of country self-effacement on "I'd Avoid Me Too."
