5.0 out of 5 stars The Torment of A Broken Man, 23 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Blood & Chocolate (Audio CD)
Blood & Chocolate is simply a stunning Costello CD, brimming with anger, hurt & pain, most of it inflicted by the supposed fairer sex. The opening 'Uncomplicated' prepares the ground for 'I hope you're happy now' & the intense lyrics 'I know that this will hurt you more than it hurts me' & 'I never loved you anyhow'. Six minutes worth of the epic 'Tokyo Storm Warning' where 'The sky fell over cheap Korean monster movie scenery' follows...
The haunting 'Home is anywhere you hang your head' features the classic line 'But you know she doesn't want you, but you can't seem to get it through your head' sums up the true feeling of rejection, as your loved one wanders into the sunset, clutching a large chuck of your heart in her hand.
However, none of this prepares you for the sheer beauty of 'I want you', a song that once reduced Janice Long to tears live on air, and did the same to me on 1st listening. Even the hardest of hard hearts would do well to hang onto the tears in maybe the most beautiful song ever penned.
The CD maintains it's quality, despite peaking on track 5, but the likes of 'Battered old bird', 'Crimes of Paris' & 'Next time round' are in no way poor quality & still manage to toy with the emotions in a way no other musician can.
The 2nd disc adds more tracks to the £ & is well worthy of a listen, if you can prize the 1st disc from the player!
Costello is a living treasure, a man who understands & conveys the thing that most men fear & even more refuse to express....emotion!
If you're heartbroken & have sphed too many tears over the one who stole your heart, then buy this cd & shed a few more....& let the healing begin...
