Tomorrow's Sounds Today

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Dwight Yoakam; Producer (group): Reprise Records

Dwight Yoakam’s style is so seamless, his taste so sterling, that his recent music is just this side of boring. Tomorrow’s Sounds Today’s sound, grittier and dustier than ‘98’s poppish A Long Way Home, masks the album’s core blandness; too much of the material is just plain forgettable. Yoakam’s one wild card remains the insanely inventive picking of producer-lead guitarist Pete Anderson, whose exhilarating solo on ”A Place to Cry” is the album’s high point. C+
