Reviews:

''Imperial Bedroom'' is a 1982 album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. It was the second Costello album, along with ''Almost Blue'', not produced by Nick Lowe, the production duties handled by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick. "I wanted to try a few things in the studio that I suspected would quickly exhaust Nick's patience," as Costello put it in the liner notes to the 1994 Rykodisc reissue.

It was voted as the best album of the year in ''The Village Voice'' Pazz & Jop critics poll. In 1998 readers of ''Q'' magazine named it the 96th greatest album ever. In 1989, it was ranked #38 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of The 100 Greatest Albums of the 80's. In 2003, the album was ranked number 166 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album reached number 6 in the U.K. charts and number 30 in the U.S., but the singles were less successful. "You Little Fool" and "Man Out of Time" each briefly appeared in the British top 60, but neither charted in America. - Wikipedia
