Elvis Costello

David Greenberger reviews When I Was Cruel by Elvis Costello. He says the album bristles with sonic energy that harkens back to the early days of Costello's career, when he was branded an angry young rocker. But these songs are informed by middle age, mature self-awareness and bitter experience. (4:30) The CD is from Island Records. See http://www.islandrecords.com/elviscostello/home.las.
