5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Costello at the peak of his powers, 30 Aug 2009
This review is from: Armed Forces (Audio CD)
Despite his previous album This Years Model as being seen as the his finest album, 1979's Armed isn't far off from being labelled as his finest album, it's probably more pop than it's predecessor but it still ranks up they're with his finest albums in terms with the consistency of his lyrics and melodys. While This Years Model had hits like Radio,Radio and Pump it up, Armed Forces can boast Accidents will happen and even Costello's biggest hit in Oliver's Army. But that's not all there are plenty more classics to talk about, like the Baroque-esque Green Shirt a song that easily could've featured on Imperial bedroom because of its harpischord intro, other great songs include Party Girl, and the ABBA esque intro of Goon Squad, this album ranks up their with Costello's best and it will forever be seen as one of the most important albums in the Costello album catalogue.

Key tracks:Accident's will happen,Olivers Army,Goon squad,Two Little hitlers

Also Buy:XTC 'Drums and Wires'
