Costello, R.E.M. stand prominent
among best music of '86


Eric Stragar

Extract:

Best Album of the Year — Skinny guys with glasses of the world unite! Elvis Costello's Blood and Chocolate is the year's finest in a year where albums by R.E.M. and Lou Reed not only were artistic successes but monetarily successful as well. How Costello has been able to churn out so many records in so few years absolutely befuddles the mind. In only nine years of recording he has issued thirteen albums. From the beginning of "Uncomplicated's" riot stomp to the finale of "Next Time Around" there is not a single dull note. If Elvis wasn't so surly, perhaps even "Blue Chair" or "Crimes of Paris" could have been a successful single. But who cares? Despite his minimalist approach, Costello still manages to make every album sound fresh.
