Armed Forces

Elvis Costello

T.A. Irwin

This is Costello's third album, and like the others it is produced by the fabulous Nick Lowe. After giving the record a few listens, I have come to the conclusion that it is his finest to date. If you're one of those people who think he's just a novelty, forget it — this guy is for keeps. Power pop is the phrase being used to describe Costello's performances, and just about every song on this disc lives up to the name. Costello's "Accidents will Happen," "Goon Squad," and "Oliver's Army," along with Lowe's "Peace, Love, and Understanding" are high points on the lp. Along with the album there is an ep containing live versions of "Alison," "Watching the Detective," and "Accidents will Happen." These songs are a bit weak compared to the overall package, and seem to be thrown in as an incentive to buy the record. As a whole, Armed Forces stands out as the best overall album by Costello to date.
