#474: Armed Forces by Elvis Costello and the Attractions

1.21.2011


Armed Forces by Elvis Costello and the Attractions (1979)

Favorite Track(s): "Accidents Will Happen" and "Green Shirt" and "Goon Squad"

Thoughts: (I listened to the original LP track listing)

I really enjoyed this album. Most of the political references were way over my head (the original album name was Emotional Fascism) but really great Brit-rock pop songs.

Sometimes I was reminded of Bruce Springsteen, and "Party Girl" totally reminded me of the end of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" by The Beatles.

I think is an album I'll need to re-visit. I'm not sure I was fully in the mood to engage it today. But onward in the list!
