Rolling Stone said: “Elvis Costello’s Imperial Bedroom is really a mansion, each of whose rooms is decorated with painstaking care and detail by the artist. In every aspect of this masterfully wrought, conceptually audacious project, he’s managed to bulwark his emotional directness with vision and clarity — and to make an album that lingers and haunts long after the last note has died out. Like a long, episodic novel — or a long, episodic relationship, you
can look back when it’s over and measure how far you’ve traveled.”
Score: 4/5.

TUTV: 5-star singer-songwriter. 1st class album.

Singles/clips: You Little Fool / Man Out Of Time
