Elvis Costello and the Attractions: Punch The Clock
God I love this record. Yes, he swerved from New Wave to Pop, but boy what a collision. EC fans like to dismiss Punch as too pop, but really it isn’t. The songs, the words, the horns, and just some fantastic tunes create something much more that just ‘pop’. “Everyday I Write The Book” does not even come close to the best song on the album. This LP is just plain fun from start to finish.
