of Chris Isaak’s haunting 1990 top ten hit “Wicked Game”:
Few can sing match Isaak’s soaring Orbisonian tenor, so Black Math’s singer Jef With One F was wise to give it this stentorian, actorly, damn near Nimoyesque reading. Backing is good, despite organ a little too hot in the mix. I dig Christy Lain’s cooed backing vocals. Grade 85.78 – John Nova Lomax
