Wise Up: Thoughts (Remixes & Reworks)
Elvis Costello and The Roots
This album, definitely takes you on a journey of musical exploration. The title track, “Cinco Minutos Con Von” is a fusion of Latin jazz and and rap. The journey continues into a 50s inspired ballad, represented in the song, “The Puppet has cut his strings.” This 7 song album, definitely is a great listen for those who are fans of Elvis and The Roots, but also for new fans of the music. Wise up: Thoughts, is a great diverge from the general pop music scene out there. For those looking for a refreshing, innovative music, definitely give this album a listen!
