Elvis Costello
King of America
1986

After several disappointing albums in the early 80's, Costello came back with what may be his strongest record. The trademark tragicomic lyrics are here, along with the vocal strength that made his earliest records classics. Costello's reflections on American culture are dead on, as evidenced in songs like "Brilliant Mistake," "Our Little Angel," and "American Without Tears." The cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" is not to be missed.
