ONE OF THE BEST RECORDS OF 2006
Congratulations to Elvis Costello and the Attractions, 2003 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees!
He burst onto the music scene in 1977 with the vitriol and determined rage of the current punk rock movement, but he was contrary to that movement in his encyclopedic knowledge of modern pop music, no doubt a garden shed full of old records. Plus, his band could actually play their instruments.
He was also extremely articulate, and had a melodic gift far beyond anyone else associated with punk, or new wave, or whatever label you wish to apply to that rock and roll Protestant reformation movement.
From his own emotional turmoil and self-doubt, nay, self-loathing, he continues to create a body of work amazing both in it's diversity of styles (rock, r&b, country, Broadway) and in the way it all ultimately fits together as an organic whole. He has given comfort, catharsis, and artistic inspiration now to several generations of musical connoisseurs and troubled souls the world over.

"Elvis Costello has been a God to me since seeing him at the age of 15 (my age, unlikely his) on Saturday Night Live. I was blown away that evening. His Get Happy project is one of the greatest group of songs ever committed to vinyl. It contains one of my all-time favorite Elvis lines from the song "opportunity": "the chairman of the party was a compliment collector, I'd like to be his funeral director." Check out his works if you are even remotely serious about song craft!" --Sananda Matreiya, aka Terence Trent D'Arby June 1, 2006
