“Something For Everybody” by Elvis Presley - album review

TJR says

Far too tame, far too often is the story on the latest Elvis album, only occasionally saved by some decent R n B offerings. There’s no doubting his ability to caress and serenade – if that’s your bag then you’ll love it. “Gently” sums up all that’s wrong with much of Elvis 60s catalogue – pathetic lyrics, timid playing, general all round squaredom. The rocking rhythms of “I’m Coming Home”, sequenced immediately afterwards, almost seems to serve as an apology. The brilliance of “Elvis Is Back!” is a long-distant memory just 14 months later.
