The Other Side of Summer is pretty classic-sounding Elvis Costello. Complete with 1960s sensibilities, catchy hooks, and a multi-layer production. I’m almost surprised I hadn’t heard it before, but it also isn’t quite as memorable as the songs of his with which you are more familiar.

The rest of the album ranges a little further than what you’d identify as classic Elvis Costello with some distinctly weird and experimental moments, but all very listenable-to. It’s an enjoyable and interesting album, and not one I can claim to have really heard anything off of before.
