5.0 out of 5 stars Think of it as just a Live CD
That is, if you already have the album, as many of us do. You get 17 live songs from a artist arguably at his peak - I was lucky enough to attend one of these shows in 1978 and it was fantastic. The show from Washington doesn't quite match up to my recollection but it's still great stuff and a joy to hear.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Year's Reissue
Much as I love This Year's Model - Nick Lowe's pin-sharp but punchy production hasn't dated at all - I won't be shelling out on this repackage. This must be the fourth version on CD now at least! What are we supposed to do with previous versions now supposedly rendered obsolete by this latest 'definitive' issue (until the next one comes along in 2010)? And experience has...

2.0 out of 5 stars The Return Of Corrupt CD?, 3 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Year's Model (Audio CD)
This is a classic album. Elvis Costello And The Attractions at their peak. However I have issues with this CD release. Or at least the 2010 pressing batch.

Quite simply it doesn't play on alot of my CD players. Not sure what the problem is. Perhaps there's enhanced content or MP3 file versions for the PC. I really wouldn't know though. I just want to place it in a household hi-fi and press play.

So far all I've gotten is a dull click. Have had a second copy from Amazon but absolutely the same. Gone for a refund and now looking for an older release because I love this music.

3.0 out of 5 stars another pointless re-issue, 24 Feb 2008
sometimes i find re-issue's of popular albums by bands and solo stars welcoming but wasn't this album re-issued somthing like six years ago!
nothing against one of Elvis Costello's best ever album since il buy it and see if the re-issue is worth the price alone especially the 2nd disc but if anybody takes a look at the Beatles back catalogue and see why it hasn't undergone somthing of a facelift is the reason why they (or the two suviving beatles in question) are loaded and don't see why they want to con the fans out of their hard earned money for the sake of putting their albums under the knife!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great music but not as expected, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Year's Model (Audio CD)
The reviews for this spoke of a live cd with the main album. When it arrived, there was just the main album which I already had. Big disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Milking it, 27 Feb 2008
By 
Jeff Cotton "fictionalcities.com" (London United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
A great album as has been said. But as someone who's bought the vinyl, the CD, the CD with extra tracks and the CD with an extra CD, I've just about reached my limit. And each year sees a new compilation. We know that the old albums are much much better than anything he'd done these past couple of decades, but enough already!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Action, 14 Jan 2011
By 
Another shed-load of cash for Elvis with yet another reissue of the same old stuff. Great in its day, surely the time has come to call "enough". A sad end.
