 デビュー以来、ひたすら休まずアルバム発表してきたコステロだが、ワーナー移籍と前後して活動のペースをスローダウンさせたようだ。内容は前作の延長線上に位置しているように感じる。『The Other Side Of Summer』はビーチ・ボーイズを彷彿とさせる雰囲気の曲。ビーチ・ボーイズとの関連は、今後も見え隠れする。

10. This Offer Is Unrepeatable 20. Birds Will Still Be Singing

 弦楽四重奏団ブロードスキー・カルテットと共演したもろクラシックがかったアルバム。これが異種格闘技戦のような緊張感を孕んでいて、聴く側にも緊張感が走る。このアルバムのツアーで来日を果たし、アンコールではビーチ・ボーイズの『God Only Knows』が飛び出したのだというから、観に行った人は超ラッキーだったろう。ブロードスキー・カルテットとのいいパートナーシップは、現在も続いているらしい。
