A quick break in our recent Swedish fixation to throw a bone to Chris Isaak, whose compilation, Best Of Chris Isaak, came out yesterday. I've always thought this guy was a bit underrated (or, perhaps overly celebrated for just a single song and its still-steamy, sand-in-the-butt-crack video).
Clearly, he isn't the most versatile or visionary of music makers, but within his specific niche (and with that great, Orbison-lite croon), he shines just fine.
