Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach
Painted From Memory
Mercury

Even on his worst records, Costello has firmly executed his concepts. On Painted From Memory, he boldly convokes the kind of music his fans likely rejected when they bought This Years Model and My Aim Is True, and with characteristic dread, makes comfort feel like a deadly trap. With six marriages between them, Bacharach and Costello summon their memories of the heart's coma, the night that feels endless. The singer in "This House Is Empty" sits in a leather chair so plushly comfortable, he might never get up.
