This is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds take on the Tornado of Tupelo in 1936 and the birth of Elvis Presley - it is quite evangelical and certainly atmospheric - Elvis is seen as a savior sent to save the town and lead the people out of the disaster, racism and into a different perspective. It also alludes to Elvis being a twin - the survivor - being raised in a black community- giving him a grounding in the blues and the rich diversity of that community. All these diverse elements help to create a different and special entertainer. THE KING WILL WALK ON TUPELO!!!! What do you think of it?   50
