Almost Blue

Elvis Costello & the Attractions

Sid Fictitious

Don't you hate record reviews?

All they ever amount to is some nerd mumbling on about how, "this is the new album by Elvis Costello and it's called Almost Blue. All of the songs were written by real live — well, I'm sure that some of 'em have come over all dead like by this point — country and western artistes."

And next the wart-hog will offer his opinion: "Well, yes, Costello is a fine vocalist but this doesn't seem to be his forte. He should give up this George Jones fixation and stick to writing songs for Linda Ronstadt."

And if he needs to fill space, he'll list the band: "Steve Neive does a superb job on organ and piano; likewise, the rhythm section of Pete & Bruce Thomas do their best. Elvis plays his usual understated guitar parts." I mean, who cares? Give me a luke-warm water basin of tapioca pudding any day.

(Oh, shit. I just realized that this is a record review. Oh, well.)
