Classic Return to Greatness....(that's right, kids..Greatness!)

>> Elvis Costello, with spirit, produces/drops, a CD worth much more than salt, this time out. This is a "Live" album to be treasured by Jazz lovers, and Rock n Roll lovers, and Lyric lovers, all over the world. It's a great spin, without doubt. Anyone who has loved and admired Elvis Costello (for his brute honesty of lyric, and subtle use of the craft of songwriting), will LOVE---L-O-V-E----this album. This is superior work....I wish I were in the audience for this. A CLASSIC. Listen, my friends, and you will hear a true master at work. BEAUTUIFUL, with the jazz touch. As smooth as a Long Island Ice Tea, and all of the punch of a double-shot of top-shelf. Too good to be true....That's Costello...more honest than most, and as loving of Tin-Pan Alley as the Best of All Worlds. You gotta Love it!

Uh-Oh! Elvis Makes Polarizing Music!?!?

Hold the phone ... Elvis Costello making a record that elicits glaringly polarizing reviews from critics and fans alike? Jazz horns? Heavenly strings?! A Charles Mingus interpretation?!? Some don't know what to call it. Well, I call it a return to form. Admittedly, I dropped out of Costelloland during the 80s-90s "middle" period (after being a rabid late 70s-early 80s fanatic for every groove the man committed to wax). But, WOW!, this is the kind of uncompromising, singularly personal and inimitable presentation of original popular music that made me admire His Elvisness in the first place. The Sex Pistols and Stiff Records artists of the punk era polarized people with blaring guitars and propulsive rhythms. Costello's raised the bar by challenging his audience with sax and violins (er, sorry for the pun).

Good stuff

Worth it for the great versions of Watching the Detectives, Clubland, and Dust. The whole album is good but if you're not into Elvis's jazzy/classical side, just pick up those three tracks.

When Elvis Costello's first record was released in 1977, his bristling cynicism and anger linked him with the punk and new wave explosion. A cursory listen to My Aim Is True proves that the main connection that Costello had with the punks was his unbridled passion; he tore through rock's back pages taking whatever he wanted, as well as borrowing from country, Tin Pan Alley pop, reggae, and many other musical genres. Over his career, that musical eclecticism distinguished his records as much as his...
