We gave it a B

The only solo album by an ex-Replacement that doesn’t sound like the Replacements. It could also be the Keith Richards album that never got made: where Richards shows he can actually sing. Mature, classy, and as unpretentious as you’d expect, guitarist Slim Dunlap’s first set, The Old New Me, has surprising staying power — and, on the charmingly NRBQ-ish ”Isn’t It,” an organ-playing drive-in intermission like you wouldn’t believe.
