Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Produced by the legendary Jim Dickinson, Miller's Citation is a rock soundtrack for stories set stateside and on battlefields, songs that seem to spring from the pages of historical biographies and, of course, songs about sex, love, and trains. Before you scoff at the train part, he's the only guy to actually launch a tour on a train. Scott Miller not only creates songs with a sense of place, he and his band, The Commonwealth make them rock. Sugar Hill. 2006.

Amazon.com

The third solo album by the former V-Roys frontman combines the storytelling of a Tennessee troubadour with the reckless soul of a diehard rocker. It's been a long time since even Bruce Springsteen has recorded an anthem as Springsteenesque as the opening "Freedom's a Stranger," with a hard-twanging cover of Neil Young's "Hawks and Doves" (timely once again) also showing Miller's affinity for rock classicism. The country romp through "Say Ho" provides an impromptu history lesson on Sam Houston, while the solo acoustic closer, "Long Goodnight," is likely the bleakest lullaby you'll ever hear. Across the range of musical territory that Miller covers, he combines an expressively reedy voice with an eye for significant detail. This project plainly found a kindred spirit in legendary producer Jim Dickinson (patriarch of the North Mississppi Allstars, with sideman credits from the Rolling Stones to Ry Cooder), who has long shown a preference for first-take immediacy and passion over polish. On "Still People Are Moving," the song begins as midtempo ballad and accelerates with the supercharged propulsion of a runaway train. --Don McLeese

I love the attitude of this record. There were signs of it in Thus Always To Tyrants and Upside Downside, but Citation drives it home. From the opening notes of "Freedom Was A Stranger", this CD pulls you in. Scott uses dynamics in this record to help drive home all the important points. In a day and age when artists are out there protesting everything from the President to Colonel Sanders, it was refreshing to hear a real protest. A protest of the people who have fed you full of s**t all your life, from your best friend who steals your girl while you are deployed overseas (listen to "Jody") to the halls of congress who slings enough bulls**t to power a big engine designed to run on it (listen to "8 Miles A Gallon"). Perhaps the best protest is the album itself which seems to protest getting older. 5 Stars was the easy part for me. Taking the CD out of my player has proven to be the hard part.

Scott Miller writes and plays like a seasoned veteran in what is an extremely complex presentation of heart, soul, and sweat. Smokin' hot. I see dead people when I hear `The Only Road...' homage to the Minor Chord so full of angst, despair, longing and a generations' lost innocence that I find myself practically in mourning after each spin. That one's a single with attitude. My bourgeois favorite has to be 'Eight Miles a Gallon' and its no-nonsense rock and roll, but I found a much deeper appreciation of `Still People Are Moving,' the tribute to American hero Sam Houston (`Say Ho'), 'Wild Things,' 'On a Roll,' and 'Long Goodnight.' Stunning and powerful.

When something resonates on a simple, level, but shows depth with time, it is a treat. Scott Miller has grown. This is great music -- so basic, simple and accessible at first glance, but with complex flavors that continue to reveal themselves with time. It can keep pleasing you in different ways and refreshing itself. Miller is so seamless in his mixing of styles that you might miss the richness. His gifts with language are well honed, and the things he chooses to share with us are worth engaging. Beyond that, the pacing and spacing of the songs and flavors is just plain tasty. This stuff is sooooo deeply good - and Miller makes it look so easy that you might miss it if you don't take the time to notice what's going on. There's an artist at Work -- don't miss out.

Stripped down, drinking, driving classic Scott Miller. More literary than past releases- a tad more understated. Stays with you for that very reason.

I would give it five stars but I have to save that rating for Willie and Family live- and scott's next record.
