This is an unfortunate fate for what, in retrospect, is one of Costello's finest albums.
John Stodder
It was never a high-charting single but it should have done better because it's a great piece of work in the classic Costello vein.
Lunar Boulevard
The minor chords,jazzy caberet piano and the exotic words and singing really make this a song that comes to life all on it's own.
Andre S. Grindle

well let me just start by sayin i love elvis so this review is one sided. this is his trust album it's not his best in my opinion but i still think its good. i got a copy of this album on vinyl before i got the CD and i enjoyed it enough to buy the CD. with tracks like "Clubland", "New Lace Sleeves", "From A Whisper To A Scream" and my favorite off the album "Shot With His Own Gun" this album is worth the 10 bucks. the rest of the tracks are good to the range from a country sound on "Different Finger" to a rockabilly sound on "Luxembourg" and all the classic elvis sound that i love. over all its a good album. if you like elvis add this one to your collection.

"Trust" broke form with earlier Elvis Costello albums in a major way. For the first time, Elvis shifted focus from the brute force of his music to presenting himself more as a vocalist. Where he would often just bellow the songs out (think "Goon Squad" or most of "Get Happy!!"), on "Trust" he began to explore his range. A fair amount of this might have to do with the liner notes continual references to EC's increased drinking problems, but probably more to his budding relationship with Chris Difford of Squeeze. That friendship led to one of the album's highlights when Difford's bandmate Glenn Tillbrook joined EC on "From A Whisper To A Scream." (Squeeze got the favor returned when Elvis co-produced "East Side Story" and added his voice to the classic "Tempted.")

Elvis was also in the middle of something of a writer's draught, which meant that he polished up a few older tunes from his pre-Aim days, and left a couple of songs sounding less than stellar. "You'll Never Be A Man," "Luxembourg" and "Big Sister's Clothes" were the first times I'd ever felt that the songs on an Elvis album were filler (hence the 4 star rating). Not like it mattered, because along with "New Lace Sleeves" and "From A Whisper to a Scream," there was the magnificent "Shot With His Own Gun," a stunning piano ballad. That particular song upped the ante for Elvis the writer, as well as being perfectly realized as a vocalist. (It could also be viewed as a precursor to "Imperial Bedroom's" "The Long Honeymoon" and "Almost Blue.")

Like many of Elvis' albums, "Trust" has aged delightfully. While many may have dismissed it upon release as EC mellowing out, it was actually the maturation point where Elvis the "Angry Young Man" became the classic tunesmith that would carry into the soon to come "Imperial Bedroom."

For his fifth album Elvis Costello said he wanted to mix the melodies of Armed Forces with the rhythms of Get Happy!!. 1981's Trust is a brilliant hybrid of his previous works, taking everything that made his first four albums successful and merging them together into one coherent work. Despite the fact that Elvis was drinking heavily at the time and the strain of touring seemed to be taking its toll on the group, he and The Attractions managed to churn out another brilliant record that still remains one of my utmost favorite EC albums.

The jangle and chimes of "Clubland" open the record in traditional Attractions style with a catchy chorus and energetic playing. It was never a high-charting single but it should have done better because it's a great piece of work in the classic Costello vein. "Lovers Walk" and "Strict Time" both give drummer Pete Thomas a chance to hammer way and his island-style drumming on these tracks gives them an extra kick that's both refreshing and interesting. "New Lace Sleeves", "Watch Your Step", and "Pretty Words" are all perfect examples of the sound that Costello had envisioned for the record, taking pop sensibilities and melding them together with RnB beats and soul rhythms. The Attractions are great as always and take Costello's songs to new heights with their subtle instrumental touches.

"Different Finger" is a sinister little country gem about infidelity. Despite being only two minutes long it's incredibly smart and disturbing with lines like, "But if I can be alone completely with you tonight/Please put your ring on a different finger before I turn out the lights".
