Vic Chesnutt’s West Of Rome is the second studio album by the Athens, Georgia songwriter, recorded with Michael Stipe at the production helm in 1992. Not only does this reissue add seven bonus tracks of four-track demos, live tracks and outtakes, it also puts West Of Rome onto vinyl for the first time ever! Double LP reissue on New West.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 25th June 2017
This was my very first Vic Chesnutt album so I am not going to compare it to any of his others - I can't even compare it to any other album that I own. Why? Well, Vic is a very unique singer/songwriter. The closest comparison I can make is to Bob Dylan mixed with REM (which makes sense when you consider Michael Stipe produced this album). Two musicians I love, but would not necessarily put together in a playlist. Somehow though, it works (and works well). I swear Michael Stipe sings on this too, but no credit is given to him for vocals.
