iTunes Review

Ten years after their last studio album, The Mavericks returned with 2013's In Time, a brilliant showcase that proves classic sounds and timeless songwriting never go out of fashion. Singer Raul Malo leads things with his Elvis Presley/Roy Orbison–like command of the vocal mic, while his Nashville folks back him with a musical vocabulary that can play anything with spirit and inspiration. Right from the Tex-Mex keyboard-inspired "Back in Your Arms Again," the band is so well-oiled that the song slides across the dance floor. "Lies" (not The Knickerbockers' garage rock hit) cruises along despite its heartbreak and betrayal. "Born to Be Blue"—which sounds like it's from a lost Roy Orbison album—could have been recorded five decades ago if not for the added fidelity of a full-spectrum stereo mix, where every instrument is in focus but still part of the blend. "All Over Again" throws mariachi and ska together in one quick punch. The reverb is thick and real for "Come Unto Me," which recalls surf rock and spaghetti westerns. The Mavericks' natural abilities make everything sound effortless. 

Customer Reviews

Fantastic album from a truly fantastic band

Words can't do it justice. Buy this album - whether you're a diehard longtime fan or have never heard their music. They are REAL artists and you cannot sit still when you hear their songs. Hearing this just made me even more miserable and thoroughly depressed that I can't get to Nashville to see them tomorrow night and my husband is going without me!!! Even worse! One of the best live bands I've EVER seen - 10 years ago in Newport, Ky and I was 9 months preggers dancing the night away. Please please come back to Cincinnati some day soon!

Moving, Moody and Magical

The Miami-bred, genre-defying "country" band is back after a ten-year hiatus with their seventh studio offering, and it's as good as anything they've ever produced. The zesty two-step "Back in Your Arms Again" is a valentine to the faithful. Raul Malo's Orbisonesque voice is supple as ever, and co-founders Robert Reynolds and Paul Deakin are joined by Eddie Perez on lead guitar and longtime "unofficial" Maverick Jerry Dale McFadden on keyboards.

An EP was rolled out in 2012, and the spaghetti-Western "Come Unto Me was a standout, but those who feared that the remainder of the cd would be filler needn't have been concerned. "In Another's Arms" is wistful, and "Call Me When You Get to Heaven" downright mesmerizing. Whatever type music you like, there's something on this disc you'll enjoy. And if it doesn't leave you wanting to "Dance in the Moonlight," well, then, there's something wrong with your spirit.

Different, and just as good as their best

Their self-titled album notwithstanding, these guys have made not a wrong turn in my eyes over their entire anthology. "From Hell to Paradise" and "A Cryin' Shame" should be in everyone's collection who truly loves music. And "In Time" is no different, although the sound is a definite progression for them. It is an eye-opener for me, someone who has listened to them almost daily for 15 years... From super swingy dancehall to completely accessible Tejano flavors, this album impresses with every track.

Fusing traditional country with traditional rock & roll, the Mavericks became one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups of the early '90s.

The pair met at school and...
