has been 7 years since the last original work by Chris Issak, and I
have been waiting for this release like it was Christmas Day.
First off the two guests singers are long time Chris Issak friends
(both were guests on his show) and their duets were well done and
seemed like a natural pairing.
These are my two favorite songs
and Breaking Apart which is a remake is better than the original. I
really liked Michele Branch's duet it was almost like the song was
written for her.
The title Mr. Lucky would make you think this
a happy album and filled with love and surfer themes. It actually has
more than one sad song where it seems as though Chris Issak is longing
for a long lost love. Dont worry there are also some really uplifting
songs where Chris has found love again! All in all this cd is more
about love than some of his previous albums that seemed to fit the bill
of travel / surf / San Francisco.
As far as the sound goes it
still sounds great and honest. Every song has Chris Issak pouring his
heart out. Just listening to it makes me think of a fire place a six
pack of beer and friends.
I honestly liked every song and the
album flows well and tells the story of broken love to rekindling love.
In my opinion this is a more mature Chris Issak and I dare say his best
album yet. It has been 7 long years and this album does not disapoint.
This is a must have for any Chris Issak fan and I would strong suggest
to anyone that is looking for a singer with a great voice and a strong
