Costello unfolds again with 'Rose'

It may be his best work yet

Joel Selvin

Elvis Costello / Mighty Like a Rose

With each passing album, Elvis Costello refines and renews his highly personal style — intricate, occasionally whimsical, more often cynical and brooding wordplay, knitted together with a dense carpet of sound, dexterous and imaginative. His personal approach to pop has earned him a large body of followers, who will find his latest perhaps his most accomplished work.

With musical associates as diverse as guitarist James Burton of the Elvis Presley band to the Dirty Dozen Brass Band of New Orleans, Costello and producer Mitchell Froom paint from a broad palette to provide the backdrops to the songs, which range from doleful laments to bitter denunciations.
