Product Description

Product Description

Chris Isaak ~ Forever Blue

Amazon.co.uk

With his singular retro-rock vision, Chris Isaak had already graduated from cult figure to music-video heartthrob when he delivered this 1995 album. But if all the surface elements are intact, he has assimilated his chief vocal influences, Orbison and Elvis, even further, and Isaak's songs dig even deeper into his favourite subject, heartbreak, to shorten the distance between writer and singer. "Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing", the set's opener, employs the same growling rock-speak as George Thorogood's notorious "Bad to the Bone", but without a trace of irony--Isaak lashes the listener with the torment of a betrayed lover, telegraphing fear, desire, and anguish as he wheels from rumbling accusations to keening falsetto cries. Elsewhere, he withdraws to the more lyrical croon of his previous work, his band wreathed with the throbbing tremolo and ghostly reverb that are their natural elements. There's a folk-rock jangle to the lovely, forlorn "Somebody's Crying", a disarming directness to the simple but aching title song, and another burst of fevered agony, "Go Walking Down There", which gallops over a perfect mid-'60s guitar arrangement. For all its letter-perfect allusiveness, though, Forever Blue feels authentically heartbroken, not just cleverly crafted. --Sam Sutherland

Following his mainstream sucess with 'Wicked Game' Chris Isaac released 'Forever Blue' to conflicting reviews from critics who compared this unfairly to Wicked Game.
Let me put this to you straight, if you loved Wicked game and i know no one who didnt then Forever Blue is in the same mould , arguably better.
2 of the most moving songs I have ever heard are on this album and even though 90% of the songs are excellent its worth having alone just for 'Graduation Day' and 'Changed Your Mind'both move you to a monolithic state of emotions.
However Isaac is not the only star he has fantastic support from his band 'Silvertone' they are responsible for the haunting guitars and instrumentals which leaves you feeling chilled out and uplifted.... If you love love songs and moving lyrics with beautiful background music then you'll truly love this, if however you want something more UPBEAT of Isaacs then go for 'San Francisco Days' or 'Baja Sessions'.
If none of the above I know a great self help club for the Musically deprived.

I think this has to be my favorite Chris Isaak cd. The sound is a mix of the baritone of Elvis Presley, the slight twang of a good country song and the voice of Lynden David Hall. His music and voice is absolutely heart stopping. Chris Isaak is in some ways a beach bum with a guitar as he has willingly portrayed in many an interview and if all it takes is some surfing to keep him writing like this, I say keep surfing! There are a lot of great songs on this cd, but my favorite is "Somebody's Cryin'" which is another fiery number.

Chris Isaak reaching the highest level. Very personal songs from the heart. Not one less worthy song on this record.

I discovered Chris Isaak a few months ago. I now have five cd's, Baja Sessions is the purest in many ways, whilst my favourite is Always Got Tonight. This one is equally interesting with some lovely work on it.

For me good production values are critical and always present on his work which is why his music is always rich and has a lot going on. You can listen over and over again and never tire of it. Fabulous.
