Not sure how you can even have an opinion of you're not a fan.
Well that's dumb. I can only have an opinion on stuff I like? If that's the case I'm guess I should be indifferent toward our president, jock itch, and the New York Mets? Anyway I have never tried to get into Elvis Costello. My limited knowledge of his music comes from what I've inadvertantly heard over my 34 years on this planet. Obviously I've not heard near as much of his music as one of his fans has. But still, I think I've heard a big enough sampling to form an opinion. They play a pretty fair amount of EC on Sirus/XM Outlaw country. I've heard many of his songs over the last few years. I have yet to hear one I like. Matter of fact, his God-awful cover of "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down" is what prompted this thread. I realize many people like his music. Fine by me. I don't like it. Matter of fact I think it sucks.
