Elvis is Back! by Elvis Presley
Published August 28, 2022
After watching the Elvis biopic and being very moved by that, it seemed only fitting to dive back into my journey through Elvis’ work. This was his first studio album back after being in the army (I skipped the album of Christmas songs) and there’s a feeling of sort of wistfulness, gratefulness maybe, a bit unsure of where he is in his life. Good songs though, still quite early in his career, finding what his voice is. I really don’t like Fever, as a song, it’s so boring! That’s not Elvis’ fault though, only that he chose it to be second ont he list. Otherwise it’s that good sixties rock and roll sound, what’s not to like?
