CD Reviews

An excellent addition to your music library
Kurt A. Johnson | North-Central Illinois, USA | 06/02/2006

"Elvis Costello is quite literally the most unique and interesting man in rock-n-roll today. He hit the music scene in the mid-1970s, and no one quite knew what to make out of this strange man with the big glasses and funny stage name. At one point he was labeled Punk, and another New Wave. But, Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus) was never easily buttonholed into any category. About the only thing you can say is that he is Elvis Costello.

This album is Elvis Costello's twentieth, and came out in 2002. It contains fifteen tunes carrying that great Elvis Costello sound, which is sure to please his fans - well, it sure did me. Overall, I think that this is a great album, and an excellent addition to anyone's music library. I highly recommend it."
I thought he was done

"I was a big EC fan from early on. Maybe I didn't keep up with him, I admit.

But then I heard "when I was cruel, no.2".

This man is beyond genius. This track is so profoundly creative and genius, words cannot describe.

It led me to hunt down the Mina track from which he sampled. But besides that, this one track references Eric Sate', and ABBA!

In Japan, they designate some people as "national treasures". EC is the closest thing we've got to that.

This is my desert island song."
