Rank Your Favorite Costello Albums.

Postby Extreme Honey » Mon Jun 06, 2005 11:16 pm

:idea: That's right, you heard me, rank your favorite Costello albums. All of his solo, Imposters and Attractions albums are valid (no co-compositions like For the Stars [Painted from memory is valid as well])
I'll post the reults whenever I have enough posts from you guys.
You can choose only five. Number 1 gets 5 points, number 2 gets 4, etc.
Here are mine:
1.Mighty like a rose
2.King of America
3.All this useless beauty
4.When I Was Cruel
5.Brutal Youth
(As you can see I prefer the Warner years, when Costello cared more about music that money :D )

Well, c'mon now post your stuff!

1. Get Happy!!
2. Imperial Bedroom
3. The Juliet Letters
4. Brutal Youth

5. Blood & Chocolate
(Trust, King Of America, Spike, Mighty Like A Rose, All This Useless Beauty, Painted From Memory and When I Was Cruel are very close behind. I wish I could give them all one point.)

I was considering naming ATUB as number five on my list, but B&C just barely edged it.

I actually like most of his Universal Music recordings (including Il Sogno). The Warner years don't do it for me.
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

Here's an update:
At number one....Get Happy!! (4_8)
2.Imperial Bedroom (45)
3.King Of America (32)
4.Blood and Chocolate (22)
5.This year's model (20)
(number 6 is Trust)

Colombis/Stiff: 189
Warners: 48
can't remeber the bloody name after 3 bloody bio books: 23

Elvis's young years ('77 to '81): 109
Elvis's Intermediate years ('82- ''86): 100
Elvis's older years ('86-99'): 48
Elvis's recent years ('99-): 23


It's truly interesting what we can come up with and what we have to sacrifice when choosing our top 5's. Punch the clock, Spike, Kojak Variety, Armed Forces and Painted from memory all got weak scores. I'm a controversial person so I'll give 'em most of the credit. Keep your posts coming (AND GIMME SUM WARNER SCORES WHOEVER IS OUT THERE!)
