11 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Looking like a character from a quirky cult film and sounding like a cross between George Strait, Bob Wills, and Randy Newman, Lyle Lovett turned the country world on its ear with Pontiac, and even earned attention from the rock world. With straight-razor wit and poetic precision, his remarkable second album gets into the heads of murderers (“L.A. County”) and potential psychos (the title track), while still leaving room for loose-limbed, good-time love songs (“Give Back My Heart,” “She’s Hot to Go”).
