BEST IN AGES,
This review is from: National Ransom (Audio CD)
I've been following and listening to Elvis since I was a kid, and started buying his music as soon as I could afford it. This has meant some ups and downs commercially, and-- in my humble opinion-- creatively.
On the first hearing, this sounded like yet another very good Costello album, the likes of which he regularly released in the 2000s, where each one as a step up from the one previous.
But what stood out with this LP was the way in which the journey changed as I was listening. About four songs in, it became evident that this disc had greater variety, and more subtle sonic adventure than immediate previous releases. I'm looking forward to discovering more in this album.
You know what? 'Ransom' may be the perfect cap to what has been his most CONSISTENTLY REWARDING decade of music-- the 2000s!
