Recorded mildly better than his debut (Roman Candle on Cavity Search), the self-titled second solo album is one of the most understated and incredible albums to emerge from the indie-rock scene in the 1990s. With his nimble picking fingers behind him, Smith writes sad, little songs about drugs and romantic codependence that border on the obsessed. “Needle in the Hay” and “The White Lady Loves You More” are exemplary tunes that fuse the Beatles’ pop sense with Neil Young’s sense of doom. Lying in his own burned out basement, Smith can rough up the gentlest love song with a few salty words of choice. –Rob O’Connor
