Format: Audio CD
Like the band, who make no secret of their contempt for the Nashville-music industry, controversy surrounds whether this album is country or pop. Certainly this record, with a fully fledged orchestra including the ‘Havana Horns’ and the ‘Nashville String Machine’ has a big sound which falls outside the strict definition of traditional country.
I’ve always been a big admirer of the Mavericks during their early country days and was not surprised when their last album, ‘Music For All Occassions’, was well received by critics. This album represents a natural progression from their earlier work but retains the Maverick latin-american influenced (Tex-Mex) sound.
The sleeve notes are refreshingly different. Each of the four Mavericks are depicted on the front cover, one dressed as a clown, the others holding a megaphone, a meat cleaver and a doll respectively. Old-style photos cover two-thirds of the inlays (with song-titles overlaid along with lyric excerpts from the songs), with modern day pics of the band at work/play on the remaining third.
After seeing them give an impressive live promotion of this album it appears musically the Mavericks can do no wrong. The best track, ‘Dance The Night Away’ went on to become a top-ten cross-over pop hit. The slow burner, ‘Tell Me Why’, and frenetic ‘Save A Prayer’ were also blasted out, leaving the assembled audience with ringing eardrums and a feelgood factor times 10. Apparently the album was recorded live, with musical arrangements worked up in advance before going into the studio.

Trampoline is easily my favorite Mavericks album and this 5.1 surround sound version gives it that extra bounce. As soon as the hit 'Dance the night away' comes dancing out of all five speakers the album just pick you up and carries you along. A masterclass demonstration on just how a well mixed 5.1 DTS version of an album just blows the conventional stereo version away. Why aren't more albums given the 5.1 treatment especially when it's done this well.

The Mavericks certainly don't make it easy for those people who want to fit everyone and everything into neat categories. From the evidence of this set they're not Nashville country though it was recorded there and the expertise of their pickers isn't a million miles away from the more famous ones from that city (as observed by the Loving Spoonful). Nor are they to be considered Alt-country - somehow they've always seemed either too flash or maybe too frivolous, to get into that grouping. Nor are they straight retro though Raoul Malo's respect for Orbison and earlier vocal heroes is worn on his sleeve. Nor are they tex-mex as is sometimes claimed: their sound is totally unlike tejano music - compare it with the Texas Tornadoes for example - but their use of Mexican flourishes bring more to mind a thousand filmic memories of a romantic Mexico which probably never existed. You wouldn't call them a latin band but there are very pronounced latino touches in this set. What the band do, and they do it very well, is entertain with a whole lot of skill and knowledge of a whole range of musical forms that they obviously enjoy playing.

Initial listening suggests that they have moved a bit further away from their early country influences but I'm inclined to see the country aspects as still there but more deeply absorbed into Malo's songs.

"Dance the night away" gets us off to a great start with all the mariachi horns - this one's an absolute pop classic. Track 2, "Tell me Why" has Raoul in pleading mode backed with an even bigger brass section. Then it's more mex with "I should know" with nice pedal steel as well as the horns. A rumbling bass guitar line introduces a bouncy country inflected, "Someone should tell her".

Format: Audio CD
Ostensibly this is country music but, despite the inclusion of a steel guitar, a banjo and some acoustic guitars, this album cannot really be described as country - even using contemporary definitions. Along with the aforementioned instruments, there are electric guitars, organs, pianos, drums, strings and a full horn section including trumpet, trombone, saxophone, flute and clarinet. Of all the instruments, the horn section is the most important but what makes the album so successful is that, despite the plethora of musicians, the overall fell of the album is relaxing and the musicians never get in the way of the outstanding voice of Raul Malo.
The album didn't fit easily into any popular category, which may explain why it became far more popular in Britain (where radio stations generally play a broad range of music) than America (where radio stations cater for specific audiences). The first single (Dance the night away) made the top five in the UK pop charts, much to my surprise and delight. There are many other great songs here, all originals except the final track, which is a traditional song (La Mucara) whose origin is unknown to me (it sounds Latin) but it definitely isn't country.
This is an outstanding album, very different from their previous album (Music for all occasions) or indeed anything else they've recorded. Country fans may not appreciate it (unless they have eclectic tastes, like me) but if you enjoy high quality, easy listening music, you might enjoy this album.
