  • ELVIS COSTELLO: OUT OF OUR IDIOT:  1987: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: A UK compilation of odds and sods from Elvis’ career up to 1987 of songs that didn’t make the regular albums- b-sides, rarities.. a must for the Elvis fanatic.

  • TAYLOR SWIFT: LOVER: 2019: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: APPLE: The album came out today- on first listen I like it a lot more than I did her last album-which is the only one I am not a fan of. The ranking could go up with more listens. 18 songs 1 hour and 2 minutes- you get your money’s worth. Her last album to be released in her 20’s.

  1. Ok. I’m now officially advocating for a ten point system.

    Taylor just can not in any world be as good as the Beatles.

    That having been said, her songs, “Back to December,” and the acoustic version of “Red,” with Vince Gill and Allison Krause, described two different events in my life so succinctly that she could have been spying on me!

    That was an awfully long sentence. My apologies. 🙂

  2. Lover was better than I was expecting but kind of wish she’d settle into making calm music for her core fanbase rather than trying to be an all things for everyone massive pop star.

    • I will have to give it more than a listen. She needs to just be an artist and forget the fan base. Just an idea. I think eventually she will.
