Robertson's first solo album in more than 10 years is down-the-middle slickness 'n' cynicism: Steely Dan meets Warren Zevon in limbo. Romanticizing himself as a guitar-slinging ''Axman,'' Robertson unloads on The Band on ''This Is Where I Get Off'' and indulges in a Django Reinhardt salute. At his best, How to Become Clairvoyant makes convincing cases for the power of middle-aged experience and corrosive honesty (''The Right Mistake''). B
