Release Date: Feb 24, 2009
Record label: Reprise
Mr. Lucky is the first album Chris Isaak has released in seven years but it's hard to call it a comeback: it's been so long since Isaak had something approaching a crossover hit that it's hard to say that he's been away, that he has something to come back from -- he just appears every few years, such as in March of 2009, when Mr. Lucky appeared as part of a coordinated multimedia attack.
Someone must have realized this would be a good time to release an album that can piggyback on the talk show Chris Isaak is about to launch. Even if you only know him for his classic makeout tune Wicked Game, you won't be surprised by the content here. Apparently, not much has changed for Isaak over the past two decades, which isn't necessarily that bad a thing.
