Elvis Costello remains a great voice in modern music striking out in new directions and crafting music that will be long lived. However, in the present recording, billed as a step back into rock and roll, and, incorporating some of my favorite artists like Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris, I keep asking myself 'why did he make this record'? There is so little here to get excited about and the quality of the singing, to my ear, is 2nd rate. This reminds me of a recording done for contractual purposes, not a work of art or love. For once, I'd like to see a realistic critique appear instead of the usual hype that magazines put out to keep the industry rolling along. Elvis, you can do a lot better than this.

For those who love Costello but have been dissapointed by the lack of a recent "great'' album, your wait is over. This one is a treasure. It's a roots album that is as urgent as a roadhouse gig but containing so much texture, it weaves deeper with each listening. And you can put this on the small list of current cds that don't need a "skip track'' click.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
