Always Got Tonight

Always Got Tonight

by Chris Isaak
33 New & Used Starting at $1.99


It would be inaccurate to say that Chris Isaak -- who's spent the past several years pursuing a film career and a leading role in the Showtime series that bears his name -- has "gone Hollywood." The retro-minded crooner has always cloaked himself in the aura of Tinseltown, and his fans would have it no other way. Always Got Tonight, his first outing since 1998's Speak of the Devil, proves that Isaak's quirky, blue-on-blue worldview hasn't changed much at all -- nor has his signature smoky croon. He's still most comfortable sitting in the dark, languidly strumming out melancholy tunes about love lost (the bittersweet "I See You Everywhere") and hearts crushed like cigarette butts (the downbeat "Nothing to Say"). Most of the disc's dozen tunes shuffle and swing in trademark Isaak fashion, but he does kick the energy level up a few notches on "Notice the Ring," a nifty bit of soul-drenched frat-rock that cries out for some onstage choreography, and "American Boy," the theme to The Chris Isaak Show. And while it's still pretty hard to accept the idea of a guy like Isaak being all that unlucky in love, he pours out his heart with enough charm and wit to make you believe just about anything.
