Product Description

BBC Review

In the mid-90s, The Mavericks bagged several country music awards and a Grammy, making a commercial virtue of the fact that they have always been a band that stands outside their own time.

The retro-styled band, formed in Miami in 1989 through a shared love of Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, saw their sharp-suited blend of Nashville clichés, Mexican horns and Cuban rhythms winning them international popularity.

They became a one-stop party shop for those who found Calexico too convoluted and Chris Isaak too melancholy.

They split in 2003 after the disappointing performance of their self-titled sixth album, but now they’re back. The vintage genres and shiny modern noir motifs are present and correct, and Raul Malo’s voice is, as ever, the big gun in their arsenal.

If at times Malo (still) sounds like a very good Roy Orbison impersonator, even a facsimile of The Big O has more power to move than most bog-standard voices. However many spaghetti western riffs or mariachi flourishes are served up, Malo lifts any song up by its bootstraps and loads it with significance, merited or otherwise.

It’s difficult not to be impressed by his swagger.

He’s most engaged and affecting on the big ballads, which tend to shake the Orbison songbook around a bit and call the results re-writes.

This is not necessarily a bad thing: Springsteen fans will certainly recognise – and emotionally respond to – the techniques deployed here. The my-baby-done-left-me heartstrings are duly tugged on numbers like Back in Your Arms Again and the self-explanatory Born to Be Blue.

The standout track is the bristling broken-hearted wallow, Call Me When You Get to Heaven, featuring the McCrary Sisters on backing vocals. It builds from big to bigger to massive: part gospel, part flamenco. Like a more slickly produced Tindersticks or Spiritualized, it’ll surprise many.

Elsewhere such epic leanings are sacrificed for good-time gaiety, as Dance in the Moonlight or All Over Again walk the overly well-trod path usually passed off as “down-home” or “good rockin’”.

But there’s enough ambition here to elevate The Mavericks’ comeback above the perfunctory. --Chris Roberts

5.0 out of 5 stars Every song is a winner -- love this music 8 April 2014
By Kay - Published on Amazon.com
I cannot hear enough of this music. Discovered them on a short lived TV show (Killer Women) and was hooked. Saw them perform live in Santa Fe last night and there are not enough superlatives to describe what a wonderful, high energy, feel-good show it was. I can't wait to see them again or for Raul to write more great songs. I've always hated country western music, but this is a whole different kind of country. This was my first purchase of their music -- it won't be my last.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST IN TIME 3 Jan 2014
By Jukebox Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
THE MAVERICKS-IN TIME: 2013 saw no release more uplifting, exuberant or downright fun-packed than THE MAVERICKS' comeback effort IN TIME, the country-meets-every-other-genre group's first platter in a decade. Naturally, it was also one of the year's most underrated releases, but that "just under the radar" vibe has always suited Miami's pride and joy and their loyal, rabid fan base. Peerless front man RAUL MALO, who channels a unique ROY ORBISON meets LOS LOBOS that floats above the guitars and accordions, wrote or co-wrote all fourteen tracks, from the feisty kick off single BORN TO BE BLUE to the tasty VEN HACIA MI, which is also heard in its all English version COME UNTO ME. Supple strains of Tex-Mex, RNB, western swing and rockabilly combine seamlessly to stubbornly counteract the soulless cookie cutter pop inherent in most of today's country music; these guys have never scored higher than number thirteen on the singles charts, and probably wear that badge proudly. IN TIME is aptly titled...THE MAVERICKS are back and this is their time to shine.

RATING: FIVE TIME PIECES

5.0 out of 5 stars A TIMELESS TREASURE 18 Aug 2013
By J. Werfelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
From the opening chords of Back in your arms again" In Time takes you
on a musical adventure of high energy classic rock and country
There's traces of everyone from Roy Orbison to the Memphis horns to 1966
garage rock to Ernest Tubb and everything in between. Raul Malo is one
of the great vocalists on the planet and he soars on the heartbreaking
"In anothers arms" the 1959 ish That's not my name to the latin tex mex
infused Come onto me to the chilling exhilarating Call me when you get to
heaven. The band is red hot smoking on tunes like As long as theirs loving tonight,
born to be blue,all over again and back in your arms again.
Every song is a keeper. this is one of those albums that just gets better and
better. In Time is a timeless classic

I heard one cut from this album on some TV program my wife was watching and had Soundhound identify it. Liked the rest of the album enough to get it. Seems like a (Caribbean influenced?) C&W, which is outside my normal listening range, but ya' gotta love "Dance in the Moonlight"!
5.0 out of 5 stars and just plain fun. Love the Mavericks 6 May 2014

I just have to plug in my ear buds and work flies by. Their music is energizing, uplifting, mood elevating, and just plain fun. Love the Mavericks.
