Elvis Costello And The Attractions – Trust – Cassette

Trust is the fifth studio album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions, released in 1981. It marked a departure from the more aggressive and punk-inspired sound of Costello’s previous albums, showcasing a more diverse and sophisticated musical approach.

Trust features a mix of rock, pop, new wave, and even some elements of country and soul. The album displays Costello’s lyrical prowess, with introspective and often biting lyrics that delve into themes of love, trust, betrayal, and social commentary. The songs on the album range from energetic and catchy tracks like “Clubland” and “Watch Your Step” to more introspective and melodic tunes such as “New Lace Sleeves” and “Different Finger.”

One of the standout tracks on the album is “From A Whisper To A Scream,” which became one of Costello’s biggest hits. It combines a memorable melody with sharp social commentary, addressing the issue of British military involvement abroad. Other notable tracks include the contemplative “Shot with His Own Gun” and the infectious pop-rock of “You’ll Never Be a Man.”

Trust showcases the tight musicianship of Elvis Costello and the Attractions, with the band providing a solid foundation for Costello’s distinctive vocals and intelligent songwriting. The album was produced by Nick Lowe, who also worked on several of Costello’s previous releases, and it features a polished yet still edgy sound.

While Trust didn’t achieve the same commercial success as some of Costello’s earlier albums, it received critical acclaim and has since become recognized as a strong and influential entry in his discography. The album further solidified Costello’s reputation as a talented songwriter and cemented his place as one of the leading figures in the new wave and alternative rock movements of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Trust remains a fan favorite and stands as a testament to Elvis Costello’s versatility as an artist. Its diverse musical styles, thought-provoking lyrics, and memorable melodies continue to captivate listeners, making it a noteworthy addition to his impressive body of work.
