Goodbye Cruel World
1984, not rated
I’ve never bothered with Goodbye Cruel World, because firstly it sounds like a weaker version of Punch The Clock, without the handful of outstanding songs; it’s another Langer-Winstanley production. And secondly Costello included a note on the reissue, stating “Congratulations! You’ve just purchased our worst album,” and has stated that he was distracted by personal issues, including a divorce.
