Armed Forces

Elvis Costello & the Attractions

Delaware Valley College Collegian

Elvis Costello and The Attractions continue to exhibit a second album Armed Forces. Costello's swooning monotone voice prevails throughout both sides of the album, rarely interrupted by strictly Instrumental sections. The instrumentation is very strong throughout, but it still seems to remain in the background of Costello's vocalist The album consists of twelve short, fast-paced cuts. It's a good album if you really sit back and absorb the whole package without occupying your mind with anything else.

Elvis Costello is still one of the best new songwriters. The strange ideas and lyrics expressed in much of his material is a change of pace from most of the ordinary rock music now played — this is what makes Costello so unique. The music itself is very disoriented, often sounding like each member of the band is just playing what he feels like playing, but this, again is part of their style. if you buy their new album soon, you will receive a live single of Elvis and the band recorded from a concert at Hollywood High. It includes the hits "Alison" and a great version of "Watching the Detectives" from their first album and their new hit "Accidents Will Happen" from their new album Armed Forces. This live version of Elvis and The Attractions is worth the price of the album.
