Biography

It begins with a fanfare. With a few well-chosen notes, a mournful trumpet carries us to a far away place and proclaims that something is about to happen, calling on one’s full attention. And in every way, Sinners & Saints, the new album from Raul Malo, is worthy of that attention.

Self-produced in his home studio and brimming with deeply personal beliefs and passions, Sinners ... Read more in Amazon's Raul Malo Store

Product Description

BBC Review

To most people in the UK Raul Malo is the jovial ex-frontman with The Mavericks; (in)famous for their 1998 hit, Dance The Night Away. But since that band's demise in 2003 Malo's been plugging away with the same brand of good time, skillfully wrought country pop that's an anathema to the majority of our nation's cynical ears. More fool them. Lucky One is a fine album stuffed with beguilingly classy pleasures.

It's all about a return to quality pop. As Malo, himself, says, ''As a culture, we've lost our poetry, we've lost our nuance. There's nothing subtle or implied about anything''. Ergo: a collection of light weight latino-flavoured country rock and ballads filled with lyrics of the 'heart/part'-type of rhyme schemes may breaks no moulds or says anything profound, but takes years of experience and a voice to back it up.

Malo's material owes a great deal to the tough but tender template forged by Roy Orbison, back in the 60s. His pure, yearning vocals carry the least contrived of songs beyond the danger zone marked 'cheese'. Like all great country music it turns the cliche of heartbreak into gold by dint of superb musicianship (Malo's a great guitarist too) and, again like the Big O, a voice that wins you over with its 100 percent emotive quality.

While the album is full of dark moments such as One More Angel (about the death of a friend's daughter) or Rosalie (ditto a friend's wife's suicide) you come away from Lucky One with the overwhelming sense that Raul is one of life's optimists; in love with classic pop with irresistible hooks and never one to remain too gloomy. Indeed, the good time mambo vibe that typified the Mavericks is still in evidence, especially on Moonlight Kiss, where a Greek chorus of male buddies warn him off his latest paramour. All this and a Tuba solo as well.

Lucky One won't make Malo a superstar, but if you're looking for a smooth, satisfying journey in the company of a voice you can trust; the Big M's yer man. --Chris Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Pop 10 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic feel good album which has a classic pop sound. Imagine Elvis, Roy Orbison, Buck Owens, Tom Jones and Tony Christie rolled into one, twangin' Duane Eddy riffs and you've got Raul Malo.
I'm going to put my neck out here and Say that this is possibly the finest album that he has recorded solo or as leader of The Mavericks.
This is the sort of music made for Saturday Nights.
Fans old and new will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic - YOU NEED THIS ALBUM 20 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From catchy tunes, through classic Mavericks-style foot-tappers to soaring ballads this is undoubtedly a work of genius. Not many artistes could create such a captivating mix of tracks, perfectly blended and delivered by one of the best voices ever. You'll soon be hooked. Do yourself a favour and hide the rest of your music collection in case you're tempted to destroy it as you'll only want to listen to this album from now on. Unless of course you have other Raul Malo albums already.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 30 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
This a an amazing album, all of the tracks are great. Raul Malo is better known as the lead singer of the Mavericks but as a solo artist he is brilliant. He puts passion into all of the songs. You just want to play the whole CD over and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars grows on you
I bought a few different cd by Raul Malo, and I must say not all are that good. However this one grows on you after you have heard it a few times. so I do like it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen!
If you liked the Mavericks, then you won't be disappointed with this album. Although it will appeal mainly to a Country music audience, there's Western Swing & Tex-Mex influences... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars One song Cd
I really only knew one song on the CD and by the end i still did, so i just saved the one i wanted and passed it to a friend, most of the songs are a bit slow not my style.
