RECORD RACK

In Brief

July 07, 1996|Steve Hochman

* * * 1/2 Jimmie Dale Gilmore, "Braver Newer World," Elektra. While not as dramatic as the Emmylou Harris-Daniel Lanois collaboration, the pairing of the Texas troubadour with producer T-Bone Burnett results in some stunning new spins. Colorful string and horn arrangements recall Jimmy Webb while underscoring Gilmore's hopeless-romantic bent, and the closing "Outside the Lines" is an atypical but irresistible rocker.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good), four stars (excellent).
