Description

Goodbye Cruel World was Elvis Costello’s ninth album overall and the eighth with his backing band The Attractions. It was released in 1984 by F-Beat Records in the UK and Columbia in the US.

The album’s production (by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, who also produced the previous Punch the Clock), was not in line with Costello’s other works, relying heavily on electronics and an overall slick, trendy feel. Thus, the record is not regarded among his better works; Costello’s liner notes to the 1995 reissue on Rykodisc open with the statement, “Congratulations! You just bought the worst album of my career.”

The album is represented on Elvis Costello compilation The Very Best of Elvis Costello, by the cover song ‘I Wanna Be Loved’
