Chris Isaak – Mr Lucky (7/10)

chris-issak-mr-lucky3.jpg

Twenty years on from Wicked Game and Chris Isaak’s age has caught up with him, in a good way: his country crooning persona makes a lot more sense coming from a man of mature years. Aside from a couple of throwaway tracks, this is slickly produced radio friendly AOR of the highest quality (if that’s not a contradiction in terms).

Not one for the kids to be sure, but anyone who can still manage to pull off creditable Roy Orbison (We Lost Our Way) and Elvis (Take My Heart) impressions deserves some credit.
