"Although I bought the CD for the title track, "Wicked Game", the entire album is compelling and full of the romatic pain and the raw emotion of Chris Isaak. The entire album is about obsession, abandoned love, and heart ache. No don't pop that prozac yet.Erik Jacobsen, the producer of this album, did a great job balancing the sultry and upbeat songs of love and obsession. A slow deep song of romantic pain will usually be followed by an upbeat song of determined desire. I personally loved the great mix of horns, guitar, jazz drums on the song, 'Blue Spanish Sky', which is one of my favorite tunes off this album. Some of the upbeat songs I felt had a little too much drums but you can't mistaken the great rhythm Chris Isaak and his band possess and it shows in every song.I really love this album and find it relaxing and stirring at the same time."
Just like Elvis !

"Chris Isaak is extremely talented, I always loved his songs, but Wicked Game is very special. To me, Chris Isaak is so romantic, singing with his soft low voice with a touch of 1950's - 1960's spirit. He is as magic as Elvis, his voice is awsome and the songs are so well constructed. My favourites are Blue Hotel, and Wicked Game. They are "ageless"...these songs are one of a kind, the sort of tunes you would still love all your life and never get tired of hearing them. Simply magic and beautiful."
