Album · 1996 · 12 Songs. All This Useless Beauty is a collection of spare parts, songs written for others, songs co-written with others (Aimee Mann, Paul McCartney), and songs that never made it on to proper albums - except by using the Attractions as his back-up band, the spare parts become a cohesive whole. From the first drum whacks behind The Other End of the Telescope, a tune co-written with Aimee Mann, it’s clear this will be a tight collection of performances. There really is no such thing as a toss-off from Costello. Complicated Shadows, written with Johnny Cash in mind, is an eerie warning

Elvis Costello's final album with the Attractions, 'All This Useless Beauty,' was released on May 13, 1996. Unfortunately, it was Bruce who would exit the band for good after All This Useless Beauty, leading Costello to bring in former Cracker bassist Davey Faragher and rechristen the ensemble as the Imposters. But for their last go-round, the Attractions dug into one of their leader’s most underrated batches of songs. What separated these tunes from Costello’s previous albums was that many of them were written for other artists. Costello had originally envisioned Useless Beauty as the opposite of his approach for his 1995 covers album, Kojak Variety

All this useless beauty. She won't practice the looks from the great tragic books That were later disgraced to face celluloid It won't even make sense but you can bet If she isn't a sweetheart or plaything or pet The film turns her into an unveiled threat
