It was his second album with the Attractionsand the first to officially credit the Attractions on the cover. The album had the working title Emotional Fascism. Armed Forces has appeared on various "greatest albums" lists in both Q magazine and Rolling Stone magazine.

Moods For Moderns - Elvis Costello - Armed Forces 's punk-inspired This Year's ModelCostello moved in a direction more influenced by new wave music.

Costello described this change, "At the time, it seemed as if we were making an impossibly sophisticated leap from the sound of This Year's Modelbut listening now there are very few production devices that sit between the listener and the songs. The confidence and cohesion of The Attractions' playing is the product of 12 Democrates D - Le Crime / Onze 44 of intense touring.

The sessions were not without dissent and tension, but we probably never had quite this level of consistent musical agreement again". Any patterns that have emerged did so as the record was completed or with the benefit of hindsight.

Personal and global matters are spoken about with the same Moods For Moderns - Elvis Costello - Armed Forces maybe this was a mistake. Betrayal and murder are not the same thing. The first of them only deadens the soul. I was not quite 24 and thought I knew it all". Janet Maslinin a review in Rolling Stonefelt the album was a "killer in several senses of the word," remarking on the brief, energetic songs with dense and sometimes overly-clever but snappy lyrics.

Maslin felt that Costello "wants to be daring, but he also wants to dance. In a retrospective commentary for AllMusicStephen Thomas Erlewine felt that Armed Forces was a more "detailed and textured pop production" than Costello's first two albums, making the music more accessible, though the lyrics were "more insular and paranoid.

While the album's artwork was largely designed by Barney Bubbles and Bazooka, the original UK LP cover, featuring a herd of stampeding elephants, was designed by Tom Pogson. Initial pressings of the LP featured a die-cut fold-out sleeve, which also included four postcards of the band. The American version opted for a standard LP jacket and featured a piece of paint splattered artwork by Bubbles and Bazooka for the cover, which had also been featured inside the fold-out UK version.

The album was released in a variety of different configurations in different territories, alternating between the two different cover designs and inclusion or exclusion of the bonus EP.
