Elvis Costello delivers hard-hitting rock


Miami Herald

Is Elvis Costello getting happy? The once-angry young man who wrote and sang of such bitter subjects as rejection, frustration and a disloyal world is now giving interviews. He has also enclosed lyric sheets in his albums and sounds positively pleasant in his newest and most commercially appealing album, Goodbye Cruel World. In a two-night engagement at the Sunrise Musical Theatre, Elvis Costello and The Attractions seemed to have little to protest against. They presented a nonstop succession of his classic favorites from his first few albums and highlights from his more recent recordings. Behind him, the four Attractions, though a little looser and less intense than they were a few years back, are still an aggressive, hard-hitting unit.

Costello's former producer, guitarist Nick Lowe, opened the show (on time, of all things) with a one-hour set of countrified '50s rock 'n' roll. Lowe and band were fine, if a bit subdued, in their performance of Lowe's biggest solo hit, "Cruel to Be Kind," and other foot-tapping numbers. And starting the evening off right was the presence of Paul Carrack (of the bands Ace and Squeeze), who led Lowe's band through his solo hit "I Need You" and the Ace classic "How Long Has This Been Going On?"
