For his ninth album, Elvis Costello opted for a sleek contemporary sound highlighted by heavy synths and drum machines. While the album might sound like an artifact of its time (1984), Costello pushes his tunes beyond any worn-out genre reenactments or era trappings. And most songs soar-there’s hearty soul on Home Truth, shiny adult-contemporary pop and self-loathing on I Wanna Be Loved, slick white-boy R&B on Sour Milk-Cow Blues. Wartime irony is juxtaposed achingly on the tender finale Peace in Our Time. Goodbye Cruel World Elvis Costello & The Attractions.
