Album Review

As their career progresses, the Mavericks are becoming more of a showcase for vocalist/frontman Raul Malo, both for better and for worse. They may be losing their band identity, but that may have been inevitable, considering that Malo is such a gifted, powerful musician. He is the driving force behind all of the group's stylistic fusions, their blend of honky tonk with country-rock, classic rock & roll, pop, and Latin. On Music for All Occasions, the stylistic blends sounded a little gimmicky, but the band sounds revitalized on Trampoline — even the vaudevillian "Dolores" rings as true as the shuffling, cha-cha "I Should Know." If anything, the album is the least "country" album the Mavericks have ever done, but that's primarily because all of their influences have blended seamlessly together, creating an original, altogether intoxicating sound. Furthermore, they're not simply surface — Malo's songs are clever constructions, ranking among the most imaginative roots songwriting of the '90s. His writing, combined with his band's musical panache, makes Trampoline a ride worth taking.

Customer Reviews

Aptly named

What's bouncy and fun? The Mavericks' Trampoline of course, and there's no risk of falling off it and cracking your skull. This album is packed tight with great writing, great playing, and great singing by frontman Raul Malo; apart from the twee "Honey Pie" knockoff "Dolores," there's not a bad song on this disk, and more than a few are classics ("Dance the Night Away," "I Should Know," "I've Got This Feeling," "Dream River"). There's some saucy horn work, a sitar, vibes, and a bunch of other oddball sounds that somehow add up to a coherent, fully realized sound. I can't attest to how "country" it actually is, but if this is country, give me more of it.

Awesome.

I love this CD. It's very entertaining. And full of sound. Every song is great. EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. This album sounds like a mix between country and latin flavor. It mixes great, so go ahead. Take a swig.

Inventive and Infectious

It's a cryin' shame (pardon the pun) that the Mavericks have parted company. Their eclectic 1990s song catalogue covers a vast musical landscape. "Trampoline" emits an inventive, ever-changing collage of exquisitely produced sound; each song a journey from their Miami roots - be it country, rock, latin, suave crooning, or gospel. Honestly, this album sort of reminds me of those experimental Beatles albums, not to mention, a time when Top 40 singles took a backseat to creative, progressive LPs. Hard to pick a favorite tune here from such diversity.
