Michael Nesmith's soaring tenor can bring tears to the eyes while a warm melancholy bum-rushes the heart 'n' soul. For decades now, the guy has been championed as a country-rock pioneer and brilliant songwriter, but his clever wordplay and incredibly prescient production often overshadow just how good a singer he really is. Dig the way he slips into his falsetto on "Silver Moon" or the passionate climax to "Thanx for the Ride"; Michael Nesmith has gotta be one of country's great crooners.
