Malo channels Roy Orbison with the retro-pop “Born to Be Blue,” while the sorrowful waltzes “In Another's Arms” and “Forgive Me” let him unleash his inner crooner. Someone please send Quentin Tarantino a copy of “Come Unto Me,” because the dusty ballad just belongs in a really great spaghetti Western. The Spanish-language reprise “Ven Hacia Mi” actually manages to get even sexier and more sweeping. The Mavericks also bring a grand cinematic scope to the album's most epic track, the 8 ½-minute “(Call Me) When You Get to Heaven,” featuring the appropriately angelic guest vocals of the McCrary Sisters.
