Elvis Costello: This Year's Model

Ira Robbins, Trouser Press, May 1978

I WAS SOMEWHAT HESITANT about falling in love with My Aim Is True. It didn't make my 1977 Top Ten LP list because the songs run together and the performances don't all quite cut it. For sure, there are some great tracks on the album, but not enough for a wholehearted endorsement.

Total word count of piece: 719
