Elvis Costello arrived at the tail end of punk with short, incendiary tunes about revenge and guilt, and a visual image to match, looking like a pissed-off Buddy Holly. But the pose belied his musical range and lyrical sophistication, and he came to be recognised as one of the finest songwriters of his generation. Though he--along with his backing band, the Attractions--helped spark the new wave of the late 1970s, subsequent decades found Costello venturing into everything from country to neo-classical, proving himself a true eclectic and consummate craftsman.

An excellent album full of great pop songs with witty lyrics. A great introduction to his music

Good collection for an intro to EC
20. Brilliant Mistak (was that a deliberate mistake )
"I want you" is one of my fav tracks and I am glad they added it and didn't just stick to the obvious tracks. Very dark track but brilliant.
