Elvis Costello's second album, his first with longtime collaborators The Attractions, pop chameleons who could mix-and-match Maximum R und B, Beatles, bubblegum, and garage - a change from the Yank bar-band ringers Clover (later to morph into Huey Lewis and the News), who backed Elvis on My Aim is True. It was, perhaps, the apotheosis of his singular Manhattan Project of becoming the poet laureate of venom. And you could dance to it, too.
