Already heard this one, still bangs. Love the balance of bangers and groovers. Faves: Mambo Sun, Jeepster, Bang a Gong, Girl, Life's a Gas
Relisten. Hard to tell when listening to something like this if I'm responding to the material at hand or just the blueprint-ness of it all, but I enjoyed it. A bit long though. 4.5/5
Only heard Murmur by them before this, which I love. Good stuff, vulnerable. Faves: Drive, The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite, Monty Got a Raw Deal, Ignoreland, Man On The Moon, Nightswimming, Find The River; 4.5/5
An eternal banger
My first Costello and real delight. Faves: Tears Before Bedtime, The Long Honeymoon, Man Out of Time, ...And in Every Home, Pidgin English, Town Cryer
Good energy, if a little rough around the edges. Faves: God! Show Me Magic, Something 4 The Weekend, Frisbee, Bad Behavior, Hangin' With Howard Marks, For Now and Ever. 3.5/5
Thought I'd never heard of these guys but I recognized Too Hot from the SLC Punk soundtrack which has been stuck in my head since high school. Any time it's hot outside, or when you order pizza and its... too hot. Anyways, really liked the album. Faves: A Message to You Rude, Nite Klub, Concrete Jungle, Too Hot, Monkey Man, Stupid Marriage, Too Hot Too Young. 4/5
This record has some undeniable swagger. Killer vocals too. Faves: Miss Judy's Farm, Stay With me, Debris, Memphis, Too Bad, That's All You Need. 4/5.
