Elvis Costello – Brutal Youth

Categories: ,


Brutal Youth is an album by Elvis Costello, released in 1994. This album contains the first recordings Costello made with his band the Attractions since Blood and Chocolate (1986). About half the album features a band consisting of Costello (guitar), Steve Nieve (keyboards) and Pete Thomas (drums) with Nick Lowe (not a member of the Attractions) on bass. The complete Attractions line-up (Nieve, Pete Thomas and Bruce Thomas on bass) appears with Costello on tracks 3, 4, 6, 9 and 10. Brutal Youth was the third, and most recent of Costello’s albums, to peak at number two in the UK Albums Chart, following on from Armed Forces (1979) and Get Happy!! (1980).

Trouser Press wrote: “Throughout, deft instrumental touches, superb singing and the easy confidence of a still-competitive athlete returning to the scene of his greatest triumph make this another effortless win.” In The Village Voices annual Pazz & Jop critics poll for the year’s best albums, Brutal Youth finished at #31. It was among the six Costello albums featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
