Held for Ransom by Elvis Costello's R&B

Held for Ransom by Elvis Costello's R&B


ALBUM REVIEW: Huge change in what I’ll call introverted Elvis Costello for right now on National Ransom. This music is free in form with the subtle blues and that driving rhythmic bass pounding found on earlier Costello. And that is just on the title track! It’s a glorious intro and mix of style with a tip of the hat to New Orleans instrumentation. Great Americana without the “K”. Let him be your DJ for that hip holiday party. The voice is gritty and sounds like thunder in the evening neon lit clubs that are filled with sadness sometimes, broken bottles and those once smoke filled rooms. The haze is lifted. I believe this is progress in awesome string of records. The bar is set high for any solo singer songwriters. He does great with all these players with no fear. T-Bone Burnett and he have put together something amazing and classic.
