It's amazing how few rock artists age gracefully, but Nick Lowe has managed to do so in seemingly effortless fashion. Flying in his usual spot under the radar, the onetime pub rocker and power popper has devised a sound that is a beguiling, sophisticated blend of country rock and late-night lounge music. The transformation began with 1994's hidden gem, the country-colored The Impossible Bird, and continued with 1998's Dig My Mood. The Convincer, from 2001, follows in that mold, and the first thing that strikes you is the sound--cozy and comfortable, corner of the living room. Lowe's songwriting is as sharp as ever, sly, witty, and touching. The opening "Homewrecker" and closing "Let's Stay In and Make Love" are fitting (if divergent) bookends while "Lately I've Let Things Slide" and "Indian Queens" most closely evoke the classic country songwriting style. Gently swirling organs, quiet acoustic strumming, restrained pianos, and understated drums are the order of the day, as Lowe sings with quiet confidence and knowingness that only a wily veteran can muster.
