Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Time was when pop radio was an amazingly eclectic place. The Mavericks' latest, Trampoline, bounces between pop styles so effectively that it almost sounds like the world's greatest old-school pop station. "Tell Me Why" is brassy blues-soul like B.B. King was scoring with in 1970; "To Be with You" is countrypolitan down to its strings and backing choir, while "I Don't Even Know Your Name" could be a long-lost Hollies recording. Throughout the disc, we're offered touches of everything from Beatles-esque sitar to Herb Alpert horns, and all of it's pure, powerful pop. The standout, though, is "I've Got the Feeling," which captures the sprawling sound of '70s Elvis with all of the sincerity and magnificence required, and without a jumpsuit in sight. --David Cantwell

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection February 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Perfection" is the rating a CD gets when every song is a gem; when you want to skip around to your favorite tracks, but can't because they're ALL so good. I heard the Mavericks perform "Save A Prayer" on TV before this album was released and I haunted my favorite stores until I found it. I bought the CD for that track, but keep the CD in my player for all of the others. "Dream River" is so beautiful, it almost brings me to tears. If you're looking for pure country, don't buy this album. If you're looking for pure pop, don't buy this album. But if you're looking for top-quality music, don't pass this album up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Country music with horns July 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ostensibly, this is country music but, despite the inclusion of a steel guitar, a banjo and some acoustic guitars, this album cannot really be described as country - even using contemporary definitions. Along with the aforementioned instruments, there are electric guitars, organs, pianos, drums, strings and a full horn section including trumpet, trombone, saxophone, flute and clarinet. Of all the instruments, the horn section is the most important but what makes the album so successful is that, despite the plethora of musicians, the overall fell of the album is relaxing and the musicians never get in the way of the outstanding voice of Raul Malo.

The album didn't fit easily into any popular category, which may explain why it became far more popular in Britain (where radio stations generally play a broad range of music) than America (where radio stations cater for specific audiences). The first single (Dance the night away) made the top five in the UK pop charts, much to my surprise and delight. There are many other great songs here, all of them originals.

This is an outstanding album, very different from their previous album (Music for all occasions) or indeed anything else they've recorded. Country fans may not appreciate it (unless they have eclectic tastes, like me) but if you enjoy high quality, easy listening music, you might enjoy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! December 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Mavericks once again showcase their extraordinary music talent. Upbeat "Dance The Night Away" makes this album worth getting. "I Should Know", "Someone Should Tell her", "I've Got This Feeling", "I Hope You Want Me Too" and "Melbourne Mambo" are excellent tunes. These songs are comprised of many instruments including: trombone, trumpet, saxophone, keyboard, bass and lead guitar, drums, etc.. The Mavericks separate themselves from, well, everybody because they have a deep range of instruments. If you're as discouraged as I with bands that work with nothing but guitars and a set of drums, this album is just what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to the Mavericks era January 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Raul Malo is a gifted, powerful vocalist and musician and the Mavericks have always been a showcase for his talents so it's not surprising that the group eventually disbanded. During their tenure, the Mavericks released several wonderful albums and I love them all. However, 1998's TRAMPOLINE revitalized the band's stylistic fusion of power pop, country-rock, honky-tonk and Latin music. TRAMPOLINE is absolutely the least "country" album the band has ever recorded, but it's the uniqueness of the sound that makes it such a mesmerizing work. Throughout the CD, we're offered morsels of everything from sitar to horns, from the Beatles to Sinatra, from up-tempo dance tunes to slow sultry ballads. The standout track for me "I've Got This Feeling" although "Dance The Night Away," "Fool #1,"To Be With You," "Dream River" and "Tell Me Why" are also favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars The CD I've bought in years December 6, 1999
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
The Mavericks are the best kept secret in music today. I was introduced to this great band with Trampoline and since I've had it (over a year now) it never leaves my CD player. Raul Malo has one of the best voices I've ever heard with a range so dynamic it's amazing this band doesn't get the credit they deserve. Even my boyfriend who hasn't listened to any new music in 15 years loves this CD and is always wanting to hear it. And by all means, if you get a chance to catch them live - DO IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Up-Tempo CD February 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first became interested in The Mavericks when I saw the music video for the song "Dance tht Night Away", so I searched for the disc that contained that song, which led me to "Tramploine". I must say, I was extremely happy when I heard the other songs on the CD as well. Of course, "Dance the Night Waay" is my favorite, but "I Should Know", "Someone Should Tell Her", and "I've Got This Feeling" are good, too. Raul Malo's strong voice really makes this CD enjoyable to listen to, and the insturmentals from the other band members are first-rate. I highly recommend this great CD. Listen and find out what makes The Mavericks one of the best country groups around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Overlooked, but Adventuresome Album February 2, 2002
Format:DVD Audio
"Trampoline" might well be the best album of The Mavericks' career. Unfortunately it was largely ignored and might well end up being their last. Before "Trampoline," The Mavericks were essentially a Latin influenced country band dominated by strong vocals. Think Los Lobos meets Brooks & Dunn. "Trampoline" expanded the range of the band to include more traditional styles of music, like the Vaudville number "Delores." Meanwhile, songs like "Dance the Night Away" (no, not a Cover of the Van Halen song of the same name) and "Someone Should Tell Her" are closer to band's earlier output, but represent some of their best-ever songwriting. "I Don't Even Know Your Name," features some amazing vocals, even by the high standards of this band.
Overall, "Tramploine" is a great lost treasure waiting to be discovered.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow songs for the most part.
Too many slow songs, if you like ballads, you would rate it higher. Still great vocals and control, just not what I was wanting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love The Mavericks
This is a great album for anyone who likes vintage Mavericks. It's a little less Country and a little less Latin - it's a little more contemporary.

This CD arrived in my mailbox with a crack in the Case. Th cd itself was also broken, with a crack all the way through it. It was probably damaged in the mail.
