"Short stories, fragments and an exquisite duet with hyperintellectual Green Gartside. B."
- Entertainment Weekly

"... (another solid) effort from this thoughtful, hard-hitting, surprisingly tender singer-songwriter. Highlights include the lilting country cover I Wanna Be Loved, the straight-to-the-point Inch By Inch ... B+."
- Robert Christgau

"... evinces no critical lapse in quality ... it sounds like the most approachable Costello LP since Trust ... isn't just a great album, it's a great Elvis Costello album. And that, as you should know, is something else altogether."
- Melody Maker

"... (contains) some of his most pungent, touching compositions ... also marked producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley's refinement of the Attractions' bar-band potpourri into a seamless, richly textured groove ..."
- Rolling Stone

Elvis Costello's 1984 release Goodbye Cruel World was produced by pop hitmakers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley; propelled by the single The Only Flame In Town featuring guest vocalist Daryl Hall, Goodbye Cruel World became a top 10 British chart success and broke into the top 40 in the US. Costello is also joined by Green Gartside of the band Scritti Politti on the track I Wanna Be Loved.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
