Taking Liberties

Elvis Costello

David Gomien

Made up of 20 singles, B sides an unreleased original masters, Elvis Costello's newest release, Taking Liberties, is for die hard Costello fans only.

Most of the songs on this album were previously available on the b-side of British import singles. The tunes date from the very beginning of Costello's career to some songs recorded since his last album, Get Happy!!

The best cuts here are Costello's two country ballads "Stranger in the House" and "Radio Sweetheart." Both tracks are well-performed with some help from Doobie Brothers guitarist, John McFee.

The rest of the album is mostly second-rate Costello. Tidbits like "Hoover Factory" and "Clean Money" are interesting reflections of the ever-growing Costello.

But the Elvis Costello album to buy is his next one. Due in January, Costello's next disc is slated to reflect Costello's growing interest in country music and the blues. Skip Taking Liberties and wait on Costello's next all-original album... it'll be worth the wait.
