Album Info


Armed Forces is the third studio album by British musician Elvis Costello, released in the UK by Radar Records and in the US by Columbia in 1979. The album had the working title Emotional Fascism. The North American version omitted the track Sunday's Best and replaced it with Costello's version of Nick Lowe's What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding, which had been released.

It was released in the UK by Radar Records and in the USA by Columbia in 1979. Release Date. 5 January 1979. Some of the songs, like the light reggae of Two Little Hitlers and the impassioned Party Girl, build on his strengths, while others like the layered Oliver's Army take Costello into new territories.

You wouldnt be 100 wrong to say that Elvis Costellos third LP, Armed Forces is some odd, unholy child of ABBA and The Clash. But you wouldnt be quite right, either. Forces would probably be the zenith of Costellos career at least in regards to commercial success equaling critical praise. From now on, he would struggle on getting the two sides of the business to match. Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack Album. The Best of Elvis Costello: The First 10 Years. Show all albums by Elvis Costello. Though Armed Forces is in many ways the most conceptually aggressive and confrontational of Costello's first three records, it doesn't carry with it the same immediacy of his first two releases, 1977's My Aim Is True and 1978's This Year's Model, on which he came as a man with something to prove. There's something intensely subversive about My Aim Is True with its undercurrents of anger and frustration providing a foundation for his synthesis of pop melody, country twang, and punk energy. This Year's Model, meanwhile, saw Costello expanding his sound signific. Elvis Costello - Armed Forces 1979. To favorites 4 Download album. Listen album. Punk-Rock New Wave.

At the time this was unfairly the subject of a bit of a critical backlash after Costello’s first two albums and initial singles had been lauded in the music press. However it holds its own in a Costello’s stunning run of albums with the Attractions. The production of the vinyl original, from the songwriting, the musicianship and Lowe’s production to Barney Bubbles’ sleeve art and George Peckham’s mastering are exemplary. The musical arrangements and particularly Naive’s keyboards are remarkable. Everyone should have a copy in their collection. Canon.

Flamekiller
I'd still like to own MFSL's Elvis Costello And The Attractions* - Armed Forces but I refuse to pay $70 for it. This is a nice sounding copy and I was lucky enough to find it in good condition. Great record!

Vetalol
I have this Terre Haute pressing with the promo EP. Is this a different release? Also, runout on Side 1 matches, but on Side 2, the stamped"P AL" has been crossed-out and "PBL" etched, and it looks the original attempt was to only scratch out the "A" but then the entire "P AL" was scratched out.

Dagdardana
Actually, dynamic range is not bad, but the sound is just sort of muddy - not balanced like my earlier LPs from Elvis Costello (Columbia/CBS).

Deorro
My first copy of this pressing arrived with the inner sleeve already tearing from contact with the actual LP. The LP itself was covered in small, white dust and paper particles. The LP was scratched and was marred with many cosmetic and sound-impacting imperfections. The worst of the scratches caused skips. The LP was loud - lots of hiss, cracks, pops. I didn't bother listening critically. I immediately asked to exchange it.The vendor quickly put a return mail label and new copy of the album in the mail. Sadly, this 2nd copy also had a torn inner sleeve and the same grit and grime on the LP. I'm listening now, and the scuffs led to clicks on one song, and the other blemishes appear to be cosmetic. Listening critically, the sound is congested - I suspect a lack of dynamic range and will confirm after completing the needle drop. Hiss removal and click removal are going to be important here...I'm very disappointed, but I'm not going to return this copy. It is workable, and stands out as an example of how vinyl can sound worse than a CD. I'll have my youngest son listen to this version and compare it to my early release CD. It should be interesting. I advise Costello fans to avoid these UMe pressings.

Ungall
Almost identical results for me. Debris all over, scuffs, rough edges, etc. Avoid if pressed in Czech Republic.

Sorryyy
Classic Album, Some really great new wave pop songs here. Costello clearly demonstrates his mastery of the 3 minute radio ready song. Songs from this album always sound great on the radio. We must not forget the Attractions, quality musicians all,

sounds markedly inferior to the original "JC" US pressing -- just played them back to back and the difference is astounding!

allegro
the word "accidents" on the front is misspelled as "adcicents"

A nearly identical US version of this release exists with the same track listing and 7" but without the Back to Black sticker or the MP3 voucher.

I have been a big Elvis C fan since my time at college. His early output was vast, varied and interesting. My preference was for his earlier work and for me This Year's Model is still his standout work. In fact I was a little sniffy about Armed Forces as I loathed Oliver's Army [ his biggest hit]. However this album does have some outstanding tracks. Accidents Will Happen is widely know. My preference is for other tracks: Chemistry Class, Two Little Hitlers and Senior Services sum up what a clever composer the man was. Check this out.

This is my favorite Elvis Costello record; and there are a LOT of Elvis Costello records. It is very nostalgic for me—this record really takes me back to a specific place and time in my life. New wave music was a big part of my musical tastes at that time and even still now. I bought my first copy in the early 80’s and it was one of the first records I ever purchased. My favorite tracks are “Accidents Will Happen”, “Oliver’s Army”, “Green Shirt” and “Two Little Hitlers”; but all the tracks on this album are very strong.This MFSL limited edition, numbered, half-speed pressing is flawless. It has a moderately weak signal (-6 dB on my scale) but this is made up for by the pressing being whisper quiet. This recording has very little dynamic range compression (-0.2 as measured by DRC-Meter).

Look here:https://www.discogs.com/Elvis-Costello-The-Attractions-Armed-Forces/release/2006528This was not issued separately in Germany. Also, it's not a maxi single.Unless this is materially different to the free 7" with the LP, then it should be deleted.

If anyone has a scanned image of the cover, I'd much appreciate if they could post it somewhere.

The cover art has been posted on this cassette tape sub.

This was not issued on its own - came for free with "Armed Forces" album.

Hey depassage,I got my copy stand-alone from the Stiff Records shop in London, so there was definitely a number that were sold separately from the Armed Forces album.

Excellent album!

The music is dope of course but the sleeve is even better. On the recto : the crazy picture of the elephants parade. And on the verso : a brillant art-work made by the french collective Bazooka.

One of Costello's best albums, as Elvis shows here his is incredible talent at rewriting sixties' pop songs and making them his own. "Goon Squad", "Accidents Will Happen", "Oliver's Army", "Chemistry Class" and "Busy Bodies" are wonderful pop songs. Elvis shows true knowledge of sixties' pop, and reinvents his own greatest hits. The only time I could 'catch' him was his song "You Belong to Me" (not on this album), which bears too much similarity to the Rolling Stones' "The Last Time". Otherwise, Elvis throws his own mentality onto pop music and becomes a certified original.

Mine has the 7' that came with all the imports. Bought at used record store, so not sure why it's not listed w/ 7" on here?This is the Canadian version JC 35709.
