4.0 out of 5 stars Great album, frustrating reissue, 25 Feb. 2002
This review is from: This Years Model (Audio CD)
The new Costello reissues are proving to be a mixed blessing for me. Of the twelve tracks on the bonus disc here, five were on the earlier Demon reissue and the other seven are interesting but nothing special.
None of the alternate versions of album tracks are particularly successful and only really show how great the final versions are. The live versions of Neat, Neat, Neat and Roadette Song are poorly recorded and hardly essential performances, despite the historical interest.
Added to this, the bonus disc is only 36 minutes long, so the whole thing could have put on one CD!
This is particularly irritating as the album sounds great and the booklet is immaculate, with excellent liner notes and all the lyrics.
If you've never heard this album, I'd strongly recommend it, especially if you're feeling particuarly irritable today. If you're looking to replace your Demon reissue, proceed with caution... but you know you're going to buy it anyway.
