  • Summary: Chris Isaak's eighth album is his first since the disappointing sales of 1998’s 'Speak of the Devil,' but also his first since he took to the small screen in a Showtime comedy series.

  1. Positive: 8 out of 10

  1. He performs with such charming, seasoned assurance, that ''Always'' feels like a warm visit from an old pal.
  2. A fine return to form, Tonight offers a relaxed set of moody songs about love, cheating, heartbreak, and other venerable topics, all delivered with passionate effortlessness.

    May be the best CD of his career. [Feb/Mar 2002, p.112]
  4. 70
    His eighth album again plays out his lonesome blues as the sincere struggle of a lovesick man -- and, as only Isaak can, he gets away with it.
  5. There's as much rock here as there are dark, dreamy laments.
  6. It really isn't any different from any of the higher-charged rock albums in his repertoire.
  7. This offering is bedevilled by elaborate, overly fussy instrumentation. [May 2002, p.114]
