The album includes the standout ballad 'Alison,' '(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes,' 'Watching The Detectives,' and 'Less Than Zero' among others. I've been a fan of Elvis Costello since first hearing this album, in Twickenham as it happens. Anyway, I think Costello is brilliant.
On My Aim Is True, Elvis' raw energy comes through in a way that's never completely recaptured on later records. While the songs range from mellow country twang to full-on, spitting assault, there's a strange cohesiveness to the album simply by virtue of its rough, rushed feel. Although it's a studio album, there's a latent energy to Nick Lowe's production that grants My Aim Is True all the immediacy of a live show. While these versions don't sound as smooth or as distinctively Costello-ish as the later ones, they pack an energy and punch that, in some ways, encapsulates Elvis' intensity better than later renditions. But rather than being gratuitously hateful or aggressive, Elvis treats his bitterness like a fine wine, letting a complex bouquet of anger, doubt, and pity shine through.

Elvis Presley died on August 16, Led Zeppelin gave their farewell concert, members of Lynyrd Skynyrd died in a plane crash, and Alice Cooper went into rehab. It is in this transition period we find the nerdy-looking Elvis Costello, grinning in an almost sarcastic manner and showing off his guitar on the cover of My Aim Is True. Aside from being a pop masterpiece, My Aim Is True successfully bridges the gap between old and new, tired and fresh. He possesses the anger of a punk but the musicianship, sensibility, and lyrical brilliance of intimate singer-songwriters.
