Similar in style to Elvis' last two albums, Costello fans will love this album while others yawn. Luckily, I'm a Costello fan. With help from Paul McCartney and Chrissie Hyndc, Elvis pulls off his usual collage of extended word-play and striking chord changes with obnoxious flair. His arrangements have grown increasingly strange and at times you would think you were hearing the new Tom Waits if it weren't for Costello's distinctive throaty voice and lyrics. Piano jazz, Beatles pop, Irish folk, psychedelic nursery rhymes, horn instrumentals and straight rock all make their appearances.
