Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Stephen Averill , who designed sleeves for Elvis when Elvis was based here in Dublin, made an interesting point about the sleeve of Look Now. Chatting with me before a recent gig by his band Trouble Pilgrims, he said he likes the lettering and the painting but thinks they don't look good together. ...

Re: Elvis on new Rosanne Cash album

Only just caught up with this one but I think it's fabulous. Much as I love Look Now and respect its towering achievement, I still have a nostalgic thrill when he uses his 1978/1979 sneer, and I think he does it on the third verse/chorus of this. Lovely stuff, and I hope we hear more snippets from ...

I love Paul Kelly's music ... so sad that he's so unknown in America. His catalogue is uniformly incredible. Like Elvis, Paul Kelly is a true master of lyric and melody.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

The more I listen to Look Now, the more amazed I am. It is a staggeringly great album. If it were released by a new artist, that artist would be up for a dozen Grammy nominations and be on the cover of ever music website and magazine.

Re: 5 Favorite Elvis Albums

So interesting how many different albums are appearing on the lists. That being said, Get Happy! has appeared on just about everyone's top 5 list.

Re: Bachelor #2 or The Remains of the Dodo

Very cool! I'm a huge fan of Aimee Mann. In fact, we just saw Aimee live earlier this year and she was incredible. In regards to your comment that you had hoped she would become the "female Elvis Costello" ... well, funny you should say that because, to me, she is the female Elvis Costello...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I'm really enjoying the new album Look Now. Not sure I love the song order though ... has anyone else come up with their own playing order? I played around with the song order and came up with an order I really like. I excluded the song Adieu Paris from my playlist. My Look Now Deluxe Album playlist...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Just joined the group. Thanks for approving me. Big EC fan and loving the new album. Very impressed to see such an impressive album so deep into a career. For me, the new album is up there with his best albums (the first five albums, Imperial, Painted, etc.). Wondering if others see the new album as...
