Okay, its only me. The phrasing of the few words got me to to that spot in my mindset...What can i say? NOT a bad thing. Like that group of people that hear BOWIE on the single word "confessed" on this same track.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Unluckily I'm not liking the album at all, except for Under Lime, Unwanted Number, Suspect My Tears and not much else. Lots of boring piano ballads that feel like whining, pale, uninspired leftovers from Painted From Memory (which I liked). Im thinking you will feel different after a few more liste...

Very much agree about this bit cwr.... and it's harder and harder to even find a dividing line between what counts as a "normal" Costello album and an experimental one. I think this is the crux of all things important to he and us both. Surely we and he can all write a thesis juxtaposing t...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Very enjoyable...listened three times completely, flipping the vinyl 5 times. Just like the way i like best. Side one is preferred for now...that might change. Songs reminded me of everything from Little Triggers to PFM to throwaway bsides to MLAR and NORTH too. NICE TO BEHOLD LOOK NOW AT LAST. A+++

I remember only bringing one 90 minute cassette, not imagining he would play longer...HE DID! anyway, i rec...

Re: EC at Barnes & Noble Union Square, NYC, Oct. 12, 2018- cancelled

True sulky. We were stunned when we lost our Mom at 56 back in 1980. Then, quite more horribly, my Irish twin sister Ida, born eleven months after me, at a very tender 38 years!!! And with a 4 and 6 year old left without her. Yet, it brought an even greater appreciation of all those who suffer loses...

Always hard as one's parents age and decline, thinking of Lilian and Elvis and prayers offered up for her return to good health.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Fun laughing about it with you Neil. Inversely, i saw SUSPECT a couple times that way in 1999. But, throughout the years, i wanna estimate i have seen at least FIFTY songs IF NOT MORE, for my first hearing, LIVE AND NEW in concert. I then adapt to the way they turn out in the studio pretty well, i g...

Crikey! First listen, 'Burnt Sugar' is a far cry from the haunting, tormented torch ballad feel of the live recording I know. Oh well, will give it some more listens! Sounds like we have flipped sentiments now on this track Neil. :lol: :lol: This one i do like quite a bit upon first listen. Oddly, ...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Guys, I think you're going to have to prepare yourself for a non-rocker - most of the reviews seem to imply it's the love child of Imperial Bedroom and Painted from Memory. I love the arrangement for 'Suspect My Tears' - it's definitely not a schmaltzy song if you listen to the lyrics. It's all abo...

Me too rope. Unimpressed with the schmaltz of SUSPECT though i love the tune for 18/19 years now. UNWANTED a bit more pleasing to me as it is like it was all those years ago. YET, i remain quite unfazed by LIME after 3 hearings. THOUGH I DO ALWAYS SAY THOSE ARE THE GREAT ALBUMS...THE ONES THAT NEED ...
