"Costello's side project with Nick Lowe" ......bah, humbug. Why do people who don't really know or care write about these things!!! I'm addicted so I'll just buy whatever is available. Betrayal, Having it all, End of the Rainbow are all worth having as official releases. Wish there wasn't so much re...

I guess we're either going to get a very brief set in Norwich or a cancellation (like tonight - coincidence???). Congrats to Chelsea on the Premiership - well deserved - but didn't look like beating Liverpool tonight. The fact that Drogba and Kezman have been so under par just reflects the quality o...

I've subscribed for 16 years. Tried my patience recently but the reviews are useful as I can't stand listening to music on the radio. You're bowing out at the wrong time as this is the first issue in three years that hasn't had a top 50 or 100 things in it (except for a half-hearted top ten couples ...

The balanced ravings of a manure fan... All that is JEALOUSY that your "new Vieiras" turned out to be Kleberson and Djemba Djemba! 2nd place is all but decided and we just need to get revenge in the cup final. I'm still not sure if the EC Norwich gig will go ahead if Liverpool reach the Champions Le...

The weight of opinion, including myself, is that Brutal Youth is the complete dog's bollocks. The sound is great. You'd be a fool to miss out.

Sour grapes or what????

Meg has such a wonderful turn of phrase "the best way to Costello". Sounds like an idiosyncratic Spanish dance. I prefer to Costello in a humorous fashion, which does't happen enough in my humble opinion. When he sings "Marshmallow" in My Mood Swings, it's great because it's so silly. He should allo...

Exactly. It's been my favourite for more years than I care to remember. Got it from Play 4 days early like Otis. More of a chump, this is the third CD version I've had, plus orignal vinyl, plus King of Americana boot. Great to hear official releases of End of the Rainbow and Having it all. Betrayal ...

The vinyl version of Get Happy was always ambiguous about which was side 1 and which side 2. Track 1 for me has always been "I can't stand up for falling down."

Re: References

1. King of America

3. This year's model
4. Blood and chocolate
5. Get happy!
After that it depends on mood.
Nothing there since 1986. Sorry TDM doesn't come close, though Brutal Youth and When I was Cruel are certainly in the top ten.

You like what you like! Who can really explain why? To my ears WIWC is his best album in the last 10 years, North is execrable (except Still) and TDM is somewhere in between. Doesn't mean I'm any more right than the rest of the fellows posting here. Spike is the only album that doesn't sound as one ...
