Population Me

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.
