Top 5 Elvis Costello Albums

Postby SuNomi » Sat Jan 13, 2007 1:14 am

Considering this guy's yearly output makes him a good candidate for the "hardest working man in New Wave", which 5 albums do you find to be his tentpoles?

My Choices are:

This Years Model
Armed Forces
Punch The Clock
Personal Jesus
