My Aim Is True

Elvis Costello

Steve Nussbaum

Extract:

Elvis Costello is the latest member of the unique new force in rock. Along with Graham Parker, Bruce Springstein and Blondie, his unusual style is a synthesis of fifties doo-wop and early sixties pop resulting in the sophisticated minimalist style of the seventies.

On his debut album My Aim Is True Costello shows his unique style clearly, over and over again. The album hits a high point in the sure to be a classic "Watching the Detectives." The flip side also deserves attention. Elegantly produced by Nick Lowe, it runs through a variety of musical, modes and motifs, contrasted with Costello's coarse voice.

The remarkable fushion he performs can be best heard on "No Dancing," "The Angels Want to Wear My Red Shoes," and "Alison."

It stands clear that Elvis Costello is bound to be one of the unique performers of our time.
