The Juliet Letters

Elvis Costello And The Brodsky Quartet

Billboard

The most focused pieces in this song cycle — inspired by the story of a Verona professor who answers letters addressed to Juliet — are ones written in true partnership between Costello and members of the eclectic ensemble — "I Almost Had A Weakness," "This Offer Is Unrepeatable," "Jacksons, Monk & Rowe," "This Sad Burlesque," and "Romeo's Seance" stand out among them. Others float in a musical limbo that exposes the pretentious side of the collaboration and paints a portrait of the artist as a middle-aged man whose fires may have begun to dim.
