"NORTH is my first Elvis Costello CD. I did hear some of his past stuff and I really liked it...but NORTH is one of those CDs you can turn on and just lay down and chill. It's like wine drinking music...haha. I really dig Elvis Costello's voice...he's like the modern day Frank Sinatra, at least on this CD he is. And another thing I really like about the album is that most of the songs are just him singing and piano under him. So do yourself a favor, and get this really mellow jazzy album!"

"...with the reviewer who said that if there were anything that could possibly improve this terrific CD, it would be that a few arrangements were a bit livelier. Otherwise it's perfect as is.
"Let me tell you about her" (which I've been humming around the house.) and "Fallen" are among my favorites. I hear the next CD will be a rocker. This sort of musical variety should be encouraged and supported. Elvis Costello is a musical treasure. I'd like to see more diversity on one CD."
