Elvis Costello seems to have an aversion to presenting his work in a logical, comprehensive fashion, if the double-disc The Very Best of Elvis Costello is any indication. Like its predecessor, Girls Girls Girls, it sprawls over two discs, with very little regard to chronology or style, baffling and enticing listeners in equal measure

This large collection of Elvis Costello hits (42 in all) is very inviting in that it digs a little deeper than the 22-song predecessor 'Best Of' compilation from 1994. In this set, there are a number of tracks that aren't truly radio-friendly, but are still worthwhile selections, such as BIG TEARS, RIOT ACT, SULKY GIRL, and arguably LIPSTICK VOGUE. I like this approach that ultimately expands the boundaries a little, and gives the listener a broad array of his music. Of course, there are stellar tracks like VERONICA that can't be found on the 1994 release

Declan "Elvis Costello" MacManus was by far the most literate and diverse of the "angry young man" songwriters emerging from England in the late 1970s, no small. The Lowe-produced five album run that began Costello’s career – from 1977’s My Aim Is True through 1981’s Trust – is a spirited, comedic, raging demonstration of talent and songcraft nearly the equal of any in rock history – perhaps only Dylan from ’64 -’68 or the Stones from ’68 -’72 ever put together more manic and brilliant music over such a.
