WHO: Elvis Costello

WHAT: The Boy Named If

WHY: How on earth does a man still manage to make compelling and interesting music more than 40 years into his career? Well, if anyone was going to do it, it would be Elvis Costello. Though he is a musical chameleon, The Boy Named If focuses on what he does best: straight up rock and roll. And rock he does, as some of these tracks are downright blistering. Add to that some great production, and The Boy Named If sounds like an album he could easily have released in his 20s. This one is in the running for album of the year.
