Want to give us a clue as to why? The Mavericks are coming to my hometown soon so do I need to check them out?

You can hear a sample of each of the tracks here:

Does sound nice, although I'm only listening with one ear right now as my headphones broke. :)

I only can think that Raul Malo (lead singer) is a great fan.
He told that the first LP that he had was Elvis (the fool album).

By the way, I love them.
Didn't have the oportunity to listen the new CD yet.

Remember this great version of 'Love Me' ? From their 2004 dvd, recorded in Austin.

By the way, the new album is great and could be my favourite album of 2013. Could..........

Raul and The Mavericks are the best thing since the 90's I have all their stuff, group and solo. Who says there is no good music anymore. Favorite album is Trampolene, but they also have a best of for newbies. You hear a lot of Orbsion & Elvis in Raul.

Agree 100%!!
I have all their stuff too. Just don't have the last CD.

I think they should move this topic to other session so we can continue chatting about The Mavericks!

Yeah, I know. Got it on an Elvis tribute cd "It's Now Or Never".

As for the new cd, it's receiving rave reviews everywhere. And rightfully so, as it's probably one of the best albums I've heard in quite a long time. In fact, this one is likely to be my favourite album of 2013 (although I admit it's a bit early to say so.)
