This Year's Model

Elvis Costello

Cash Box

Elvis Costello so far has produced the highest yield of any of England's new wave crop imported to our shores. His second album is every bit the equal of his superb debut LP, enabling Costello to transcend the early comparisons to Graham Parker and Bruce Springsteen and emerge with an identity all his own. Key to that image is his stance against the shallowness of human character which is happening too much in today's mechanized, passionless society. For AOR and Top 40.

Pure Pop For Now People

Nick Lowe

Cash Box

The title says a lot about the first domestic release by the man who has produced Elvis Costello and Dave Edmunds, among others. The songs are framed in classic pop melodies and arrangements, but as might be expected from someone with Lowe's track record, the lyrics offer offer stark contrast to the bright pop sound. "Marie Provost" is a perfect example with its bouncy melody and story about an actress who goes to Hollywood from New York, fails and winds up as dinner for a canine. Great sense of humor.
