Jim Roll: Inhabiting the Ball
Buy! - (Telegraph)
While this Ann Arbor alt-country singer-songwriter is known for taking a more literary approach to songwriting, his third album finds him actually collaborating with acclaimed novelists Rick Moody and Denis Johnson. Moody and Johnson supply the lyrics to many of the songs, but ultimately it's Roll's ever-sharpening sense of songcraft that makes this his best album to date. 3/15/2002 - Don Yates
