On the advice of the brilliant author Joe Queenan, I've decided to buy an Elvis Costello album. I normally don't take a chance on new music (it's usually a disaster - last time it was Bryan Ferry), so I want to make an educated, thoughtful first purchase. Someone please enlighten me as to the most appropriate album to buy. Please bear in mind that I HATE PUNK MUSIC. So if Costello sounds like a late '70s spike-haired idiot, disregard this entire message. Thank you.
