Blood And Chocolate by Elvis Costello
Released: Sep 1986
Label: Hip-O Records
Elvis Costello brought back his old producer Nick Lowe, rehired the Attractions and cut the frantic, raw Blood & Chocolate. This is a solid set, though it tries a bit too hard to sound like the avenging Angry Young Man of old instead of just Elvis Costello. Good songs: "Tokyo Storm Warning," "I Hope Your Happy Now," "Blue Chair," and "Battered Old Bird." Great song: "I Want You," which starts off as a love song and then goes off the rails and turns into an increasingly unsettling tale of desire, anger, dread and infidelity.
