  • 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.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 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. It really isn't any different from any of the higher-charged rock albums in his repertoire.
  5. 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.
  6. Always Got Tonight returns us to prime Isaak territory: the vintage stories of a scorned romantic.
  7. This offering is bedevilled by elaborate, overly fussy instrumentation. [May 2002, p.114]
