After leaving The Mavericks, Raul Malo turned his larger-than-life pipes towards everything from low-key crooning to jumping, jazzy swing on a series of solo albums, but LUCKY ONE finds him finally moving back into more Mavericks-oriented territory. Perhaps he needed to get some things out of his system before revisiting the combination of '50s-style honky-tonk, country-pop, and Roy Orbison-esque balladry that twangs and shuffles its way through LUCKY ONE; whatever the reason, he sounds right at home belting out these tunes, even with no Mavericks in sight.
