Elvis Costello: His aim is right on target


Joan Hennessy

Elvis Costello's new album, My Aim is True, is definitely the most electrifying new album out today.

Costello is classified not as a punk rock musician, but as a product of the new wave music. It is clear that Costello's music has an attitude, which is the quality that sets hint apart from punk musicians.

Two choice cuts of the album are "Miracle Man" and "Mystery Dance." Costello's energetic style manifests itself particularly in these cuts.

A good beat prevails in all of the cuts, especially "Sneaky Feelings," "Watching the Detectives," and "Less than Zero." Although the band is young, (the drummer and keyboard player are both under 18), they seem to play with a certain maturity, and a command of their instruments. Their playing has the snappy beat that makes people want to get up and dance.

The album's first cut, "Welcome to the Working Week," amplifies Costello's obvious dislike for routine work, the very thing that he got away from when he quit his job as a computer operator only six months ago.

Yes, it would seem that Costello has risen fast, and judging from his first album, he will continue to rise. It is my estimation that the American public will be hearing more from the talented Elvis Costello in the years to come.
