Yet, some of the loungy vocal touches in "Flying" and the final instrumental track, "Super Magic 2000," would be right at home on an ...

Yet, some of the loungy vocal touches in "Flying" and the final instrumental track, "Super Magic 2000," would be right at home on an indie rock record. And of course there's plenty of that thing Isaak does best: quintessential love's-gone-wrong-'n'-let's-make-it-right songs, as on the loping, country-tinged "This Time" and the teary "Walk Slow."

    Speak of the Devil review

    I have always been an Isaak fan since back in the day. I only had a few cd's and had never seen him live in concert. I recently got a chance to see Chris and the band play...I have been hooked ever since! Speak of the Devil is just one of the cd's I have been hunting down to add to my collection. In my opinion it is one of the best! If you like rock, rockabilly, acoustic, you will LOVE Speak of the Devil.

    Stand out tracks for me:

    Please,
    Walk Slow,
    Speak of the Devil,
    Like the way she moves,
    Black Flowers,
    I'm not sleepy,
    Talkin' 'Bout a Home

    An artist not given enough credit for this talent!!

    I just happened along this CD inadvertently and have been hooked every since. Chris Isaak has one of the most unique and underrated voices and talents of our time. I am fan of all genres of music, but continue to play this one non-stop.
