Elvis Costello & The Attractions TRUST Vinyl Record - Limited Edition, 180 Gram Pressing
The album cover to Trust speaks volumes: Elvis Costello, bathed in shadows, his eyes nervously peering out from behind his sunglasses, conveying a combination of edgy noir purpose and guilt-ridden anxiety. Indeed, the tension-rich songs within largely convey the opposite meanings of the diverse record's title. The British icon muses on what lies beyond arrogant youth and immediate success with a jaundiced, scarred perspective informed by his country's political climate and his own experiences. As is often the case with great albums, Trust - which retains a five-star rating from Rolling Stone - didn't spawn a Top 40 hit at the time of it's release. Yet age has been more than kind to the effort Costello said aimed to cross the rhythms of Get Happy!! with the melodies on Armed Forces, and which more than achieves that exacting goal. Made in a haze of booze and pills, the 1981 set delves into issues of disillusionment, romance, and sin with barbed wit and unvarnished honesty. Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's transparent analog reissue let's music lovers in on the record's secrets via unsurpassed clarity and breathtaking immediacy. Whether the full, rounded tones of Bruce Thomas' bass or complete extension and decay of Steve Nieve's organ, every instrumental accent is delivered with lifelike detail and superb balance. Melodicas, drums, pianos, and guitars similarly come across faithfully and richly, the blend freed of constricting sonic veils and dynamic compression. Heard anew on this definitive pressing, Trust emerges as one of the most satisfyingly complex and expertly played albums of it's era.
