Costello sounds downright frisky at times on this acoustic set, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane, which musically calls to mind 1986's sublime, countryish King of America. (The two albums share 
producer T Bone Burnett.) ''Sulphur 
 to Sugarcane'' in particular is a lusty delight, pinpointing the notable (alleged) qualities of ladies from different locales (''The women in Poughkeepsie/Take their clothes off when they're tipsy...''). Though Costello does indulge his Debbie Downer-like inclinations on ''My All Time Doll'' and the beautiful, Loretta Lynn co-penned ''I Felt the Chill.'' B+
