DEATH WEARS A BIG HAT,

This review is from: Blood And Chocolate (Audio CD)
Elvis is pissed off. He's rounded up The Attractions & bullied them back into the studio. And Nick Lowe is back behind the desk. FANTASTIC. Blood & Chocolate was Costello's 11th LP &, in retrospect, one of his finest. It's certainly one of MY personal favourites - after the quadruple whammy of his first 4, absolutely crucial albums anyway. Seriously, if you can make it through the raucous "Tokyo Storm Warning" or the borderline psychotic "I Want You" without leaping off the sofa to turn the hi-fi just one... more... notch then you've already got one foot in the grave, I suspect? Blood & Chocolate is a ragged, raging, REMARKABLE record, & a minor masterpiece to boot. Treat yourself to Edsel's 2xCD version if you can still find it at a reasonable price, there's a whole disc of extras & they're all terrific. Phew!
