AllMusic

The songs on This Year's Model are typically catchy and help the vicious sentiments sink into your skin, but the most remarkable thing about the album is the sound -- Costello and the Attractions never rocked this hard, or this vengefully, ever again.

Groovy ass bops that might be short but get right to the point. This album will send you way back in time to a place that is just all smiles

Some of the most catchiest music ever created,it gets repetitive but its just as catchy and danceable as the first song

This was OK. I’m not really a fan of Elvis’ vocals, but these songs are very catchy and the progressive groove kept me rocking with it. Standouts for me: The Beat, Pump It Up, I Don’t Want To Go To (Chelsea), Living In Paradise, and Lipstick Vogue,
