Costello's Trust uneven

Elvis Costello / Trust

David Wilson

With his new album Trust, Elvis Costello finds himself at an artistic crossroad. The result is a somewhat uneven mixture of earlier styles and shaky experiments.

Costello seems determined to distance himself from the New Wave bandwagon. He pulls out all the stops in trying to establish his credentials as a serious songwriter. These tracks resemble Cole Porter on speed. The rest of the album is the kind of material Costello can write with his eyes closed, which leaves one with a somewhat stale taste in the mouth. Trust lacks the significance of Costello's early works and leaves little hope for the future.
