5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must!, 20 Sept. 2003
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
As the title of this review suggests, this really is a must. It's worth buying even if you have all the tracks on the original albums. This double CD includes all Costello's singles and other stuff. The highlights of this album are the tracks 'Shipbuilding' and 'Tramp the dirt down'. You wont get bored with this CD, the music sounds as fresh as it did when it was first released.

Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful album, 17 Sept. 2003
This review is from: North (Audio CD)
Well, there's not much to say about this CD except that it's quite brilliant. I have been a fan of Elvis Costello for many years and have been waiting for an album similar to the Juliet Letters (which was superb). This album displays Costello's beautiful songwriting ability once again. The songs 'When it sings' and 'Let me tell you about her' are, in my opinion, the highlights. The CD is made up of ballads which get better each time you listen to them. Some tracks feature simply Elvis and the fantastic Steve Nieve on piano while others feature large and complex string arrangements. Overall, this is a must for listeners who want to hear clever melody, beautiful orchestration and lyrics from a truly gifted songwriter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much to it!, 14 Sept. 2001
Well, I bought this hoping it would be the 'classic' Doctor Who people have made it out to be. It wasn't. I liked the idea of the lighthouse in the middle of nowhere and the strange mist, but it just didn't get going. It never seemed to start properly! Quite Simply - no guts. My favourite Tom Baker so far? The City of Death. Buy it.
