Review: Budapest One

Budapest One
“This Town Just Gave You a Dreamer”
(Beatville Records)

Fans of Elvis Costello will take to Budapest One right away. There is a highly sophisticated sensibility to this music that delivers vivid story-songs and imaginative narratives as easy to enjoy, as they are grist to ruminate on. There is a post-Americana style to this pop rock that transcends roots rock to offer a mature and developed song-oriented album nicely dressed up with grand piano, organ and Farfisa from Chad Stockslager.
