Star Room Boys of Athens, Ga., combine tasteful musicianship and twang-oriented sensibilities with edgy, insightful lyrics and more regret than 10 George Jones albums. The hurtin' imagery cuts deep on such songs as "White Lies, Blue Tears" and sorrowful, steel-drenched observations like "If I Can Ever Get It Back Again" and "Cocaine Parties." Singer Dave Marr is
