Album: The Believer
. . .
Rhett Miller’s second solo album of the 21st century, 2006’s The Believer, was a record that I think I underrated at the time. And I think that was because the two best songs on it were songs that he’d already done with the Old 97s, the loping “Singular Girl” and the heartfelt “Question.”
One thing I know for sure: I totally missed the title track, which was inspired by Elliott Smith, who had recently killed himself.
