Format: Audio CD
You never know what to expect from a Mavericks album. Even as I write this, I don't even know if there will be another. Each album released so far is markedly different to any of the others, yet each is brilliant in it's own way. This is my favorite. Some of the others were more commercially successful, so obviously a lot of people disagree.
This album isn't really country, yet it has a definite country flavor (like so much of contemporary country music). Most of the songs are originals, but there is a stunning cover of Something Stupid (with guest Trisha Yearwood, then married to one of the band) which beats both the famous versions (which I also enjoy) - the original by Nancy and Frank, and the more recent by Robbie and Nicole. The cover of Blue Moon is also better than either Elvis or the Marcels. Great though these covers are, it is the original songs which are the reason to buy this.
There is a great slice of Tex-Mex swing on All you ever do is bring me down, which hints at what would appear on their follow-up album (Trampoline). Most of the other songs are love ballads, beginning with Foolish Heart (this includes backing vocals by Lari White and Shelby Lynne), all sung superbly by Raul in his distinctive voice. The songs have enough variation in styles and tempos to keep the album interesting, yet they all fit together really well.
This was one of my most played albums in the late nineties. I hadn't played it for a while before getting it out to review it, but it still stands as one of my favorite contemporary country albums.

Like many I started with Trampoline following the Mavericks world-wide hit "Dance The Night Away". Trampoline is a good album but not as even in quality as this earlier one. If you like smooth old-fashioned country pop then this is a perfect choice.

You never quite know what you are going to get with a Mavericks album, and this is the one occasion when Raul and the boys push it too far. Whilst not a terrible album by any stretch of the imagination, it must be counted as perhaps their least excellent effort.
Here it is almost as if they slip into self-parody and whilst the tunes are as catchy as ever you can't help but think that the joke has gone too far. The homage to 60's guitar pop was a good idea, but it wasn't implemented very well.

From the first words of 'Foolish Heart' to the haunting 'Blue Moon' (the best rendition I've EVER heard and still gives me goosebumps!), this album is classic Mavs. 'Missing You' will have you transfixed, 'All you ever do is bring me down' will have you dancing around tapping out the rhythm - the whole album is a MUST for any Mavs fan!!!
