Secret, Profane & Sugarcane

Elvis Costello

Andrew Perry

Elvis Costello's Secret, Profane & Sugarcane is a return to the singer's roots.

★★★

From classical to Burt Bacharach, Costello has his fingers in so many pies these days, that this dalliance in fiddly, old-time country music almost feels like a return to base camp.

Recorded in Nashville with T Bone Burnett and a superb string band, it’s more rootsy than 1981’s Almost Blue, and includes some excellent narrative songs about, of all people, Hans Christian Andersen, plus versions of Johnny Cash's "Hidden Shame" and Bing Crosby’s "Changing Partners."
