I haven't hated a song so much for quite a while.

Every time Jorge gets excited for Elvis Costello, I picture Nelson Muntz crying at the Andy Williams concert

EC sounds so old on this track. The new songs haven't clicked for me like the ones on Look Now did.

This song came out last week, a collaboration with Michael Leonhart Orchestra. "Shut Him Down"

https://open.spotify.com/track/4Th7MnRG ... 4GPb6MvWqA

It's really great! It's like Wise Up Ghost with a bigger horn section! And actual rapping!

Hey Clockface is out and I want to cry it's so good

"No Flag" takes on a whole new power coming out of that weird jazzy instrumental intro thing that opens the album.

"They're Not Laughing at Me Now" is gorgeous.

I love the patched-together feel of this, it really works even though the sounds are very disparate.

Finally getting around to this! It's really good. The Helsinki songs sound way better in the album context, and -- in my opinion -- with the lyric sheet. I was kind of underwhelmed by "Hetty O'Hara Confidential" initially; I love it now. I'm still in the "early processing" phase (maybe a little more so than usual, some of the melodies feel a little obscure and labyrinth-like), and my initial instinct is that it's not quite the achievement that Look Now was, but it's a fascinating, sprawling record that benefits from its sharp aesthetic contrasts, and feels like an unflinching commentary on the times. Can't wait to unpack it some more. :thumbsup:

Yeah I guess that's a good start

Here's an hour-long intro playlist I made, trying to showcase a little bit of his different styles and eras: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3Ht9b ... pbg7vvrVFg

I don't know a ton about Elvis Costello. But I really dig this new album. And it reminds me a lot of Tom Waits. Which, of course, I mean as a compliment. This album is really exciting.

The album also reminds me of some latter day Bowie, too. In a weird way.

Come to think of it, the contrast between the more abrasive Helsinki stuff ("No Flag," "We Are All Cowards," "Hetty O'Hara" -- that last one even has beatboxing!) and the more Vaudevillian, Tin Pan Alley-sounding material is really Waitsian -- great observation! I am really loving this album too, listening to it pretty much every day, with new stuff jumping out every time. Right now I'm really obsessed with "Newspaper Pane."
