Two Teardrops (1999)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Steve Wariner; Genre: Country

Steve Wariner's easy-does-it approach to singing, songwriting, and guitar playing has long proved him a master of understatement, even as it obscured the depth of his talent. On his 18th album Two Teardrops, he continues to shape his persona as the hopeful but dashed romantic, and veers from country lopers to affecting philosophical ruminations. But in serving as his own producer, he fails to get his stronger emotions off the page. B
