My Aim Is True

Elvis Costello

Dave Schulps

Elvis Costello's My Aim Is True heralds the arrival of a truly superb artist by any standards. Elvis (and don't get the wrong idea, he was being called that long before the death of The King) is a sparser yet even harder rocking version of Graham Parker — but less cryptic and more human and therefore vulnerable where Parker tends to be impenetrable. His songs are simple and extremely memorable — a lower-volume, but still high-energy link between the directness of the New Wave bands and the kind of commercial pop-rock which your local radio station's Program Director says it's okay to air. Given a little time, he could be huge.
