“Armed Forces” by Elvis Costello and The Attractions - album review

TJR says

Costello and his band continue to shine brightly on “Armed Forces”, his one-and-only U.S. Top 10 album. “Emotional fascism” was the lyrical theme on this long-player, whilst musically the record added ever-more complex pop arrangements to his cannon. Throughout the set, there are hints of the classicism in his song-writing that would pepper his work for the decades to come. High quality action, and no mistake.
