Lucky is the first album Chris Isaak has released in seven years but it's hard to call it a comeback: it's been so long since Isaak had something approaching a crossover hit that it's hard to say Mr.
Tambourine Man - The Byrds - History Of The Byrds he's been away, that he has something to come back from -- he just appears every few years, such as in March ofwhen Mr. Lucky appeared as part of a coordinated multimedia attack.
Lucky isn't strictly a soundtrack for the show, but it's fair to say that the show gives Mr. Lucky a larger potential audience than any Isaak album in a long time, probably since the last time he had a television show in the earlys sitcom The Chris Isaak Show.
Given this bigger platform, it makes perfect sense that Mr. Lucky feels carefully considered: from its production to its construction, it's a deliberate attempt to modernize Isaak 's retro obsessions without abandoning them. Mr. Lonely Man - Chris Isaak - Mr. Lucky , this Mr.
Lonely Man - Chris Isaak - Mr. Lucky surfaces in echoey atmospherics partway between U2 and Coldplay Mr. Lonely Man - Chris Isaak - Mr. Lucky , textures that suit his melodramatic Roy Orbison tributes.
Lucky works because Isaak and crew Automatic Lover (Rmx) - Dee D. Jackson - Her Story overplay their hand -- he's never swallowed in waves of digital delay, the way Roy himself was on his swan song, Mystery Girl -- but tweak subtly, then alternate these coolly romantic mood pieces with swinging rockabilly, sly low-key grooves, duets with Trisha Yearwood and Michelle Branchbreezy pop that harks back to a time prior to the British Invasion, and a big, glitzy Vegas number to close the whole show.
As a sensibility, it's no different than anything Isaak 's done, so the difference is the execution, not just in the light, fresh touch of the production but the songs, which are his strongest in Shorty-Dope - Tales From The Dopeside long time -- and that's good enough to please his longtime fans as well as anybody whose interest might be piqued by the new show.
