Nick Lowe, 'At My Age' (Yep Roc)

8
At My Age
Critical Mass
Label: Yep Roc

by Shannon Zimmerman

Nick Lowe produced Elvis Costello's first five albums and the Damned's debut, and as a solo artist, he's never released a dud. But he still acts like he has something to prove: At My Age, Lowe's first studio outing since 2001, is a soul-drenched, horn-inflected labor of lust. The countrified "I Trained Her to Love Me," which casts Lowe as a lethal lothario, is the album's best moment, but Age is full of keepers, including "Feel Again," a dirty-minded honky-tonk shuffle, and "Hope for Us All," a simmering mix of soap-opera organ and altar-call seduction.
