I personally don't really like that one. But there are others who say it's his best album. So the opinions vary a lot. As probably with any album by any artist.

BTW, if you like Mighty Like A Rose, then you might also like Spike. That's the album he did before Mighty... and is also a very eclectic collection of songs. I like Spike a lot. Imperial Bedroom is then maybe also a good next choice, as that one is also quite eclectic (but has a slightly more cohesive sound as he still plays with his backing band The Attractions on that one).

I'd like to make a recommendation of 2002's When I Was Cruel, which I think is his best album since at least Blood & Chocolate, even if not as rocking as 1994's Brutal Youth. Very fresh sounding, with EC trying a lot of new things musically. It also has 2 of the Attractions playing on it.

I played that record earlier today and yes, it's a very strong record. His new backing band The Imposters, that he first used on When I Was Cruel, is also great. Not surprisingly since it's The Attractions, but with a different bass player (Davey Farragher replacing Bruce Thomas).

Just a note to U2/Elvis Costello fans...Elvis does a cover of "Please" from Pop!!! Seriously, it's pretty damn good too!!!

Oooh, really?

I'll definitely have to hunt that down, I'd love to hear his version of that song. I remember hearing his cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", and he does a great job on that, so I imagine this should be just as good.

Here's one - there's a few others up there on You Tube I believe. I have a version on my other computer somewhere.

Thanks for the link . Wow. That was pretty darn good. I like how he didn't just imitate U2's version, he made it sound like it could've been one of his own songs. And that ending was pretty emotional, too. The guitar work throughout from both guys was fantastic as well.

Cute introduction-I loved the "Celtic tiger" comment .

Good stuff, thanks again for that. Go, Elvis!
