The Boy Named If is a an album of urgent, immediate songs with bright melodies, guitar solos that sting and a quick step to the rhythm.
Costello says, “The full title of this record is ‘The Boy Named If (And Other Children’s Stories).’ ‘If’ is a nickname for your imaginary friend; your secret self, the one who knows everything you deny, the one you blame for the shattered crockery and the hearts you break, even your own.”
Produced by Sebastian Krys and Elvis Costello, the album is a collection of 13 snapshots “that take us from the last days of a bewildered boyhood to that mortifying moment when you are told to stop acting like a child – which for most men (and perhaps a few gals, too) can be any time in the next 50 years,” as Costello put it.
