Details Release Date: Jun 24, 2003; Lead Performance: Dwight Yoakam

Yoakam's latest, Population Me, takes an especially fatalistic view of life, from a song about a crumbling California to the barren romantic landscape of the title track. A duet with the ubiquitous Willie Nelson livens things up, as does the hiccuping, Elvis-esque ''I'd Avoid Me Too.'' Otherwise, this is a long hillbilly wallow, and a fine one at that.
