Ranked #482 on Rolling Stone's The 500 Greatest Albums of All-Time

Largely written on tour, Elvis Costello's Armed Forces takes the concept of personal politics to a new level. A supremely melodic and hook-laden record, the 1979 set is a showcase of scintillating keyboard lines, sharp guitar work, and the most cohesive arrangements of Costello and the Attractions' career. In every way, this is a pop masterpiece, defined by hits such as "Accidents Will Happen," "Oliver's Army," and the anthemic "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace Love and Understanding?"

Mastered from the original tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180-gram LP presents the vibrant dynamics of the timeless pop songs in the highest possible fidelity. This album has never sounded so full, rich, airy, spacious, detailed, or necessary. The textures and voicings of Nieve's keyboards are alone worth the investment. This will have you dancing in the aisles!
