    With Gilmore's self-titled album, the Texan singer follows his 1988 solo debut, FAIR AND SQUARE. The album was recorded in Nashville, but this is not mainstream country music. Rather, Gilmore was one of the fathers of the '90s No Depression movement that includes such "alternative country" bands as Uncle Tupelo and Freakwater. The songs are mostly Gilmore originals, though a few numbers were co-written with Butch Hancock, with whom Gilmore played in The Flatlanders in the '70s.
    Sturdy poetics and subtle existentialism imbue the lyrics with both surprise and rich character. Gilmore's singing suggests a higher-register Willie Nelson, but it is unquestionably his own voice. His Texas roots embrace the homeland's swing as well as the high and lonesome open spaces of the prairie. The album includes his wonderful "Dallas," originally recorded in 1971 by The Flatlanders, and "Beautiful Rose."
