Friday Thing: Elvis Costello - Armed Forces

Normally I shy away from featuring 'popular' albums such as this, but seeing as I'm going to see Elvis Costello in the flesh this evening (eek) it felt right that this week's Thing should correspond to that.

Despite my being born about a decade after Armed Forces was released, it continues to evoke a weird sense of nostalgia in me that no other album has come close to. Besides this, the beautifully textured arrangements, vivid lyrics, strong melodies, and Mr MacManus' unique voice all add up to making it my favourite Elvis Costello album.
