When Elvis Costello loves your album, well, what higher praise could you want?

Paul Simon doesn’t really need high praise from great songwriters anymore. And I’ve been hearing raves about his new album So Beautiful or So What for a while now.

But my eagerness to have a copy and hear it on a good sound system just doubled…

Elvis Costello’s celebratory liner notes, published at The Huffington Post, will probably whet your appetite as well.
