We gave it a B+

Don’t give up on mainstream country music just yet; the Mavericks are back. Their first CD in five years is nonclassifiable and thus classically Mavericks, a musical tour of romance that ranges from rumba (”Shine a Light”) and ’70s country rock (”By the Time”) to pink-chiffon balladry from an Eisenhower-era ballroom (”A Little Too Lonely”). Force of nature Raul Malo wraps his husky vocals around everything like he owns the copyright on heartbreak.
