  • Geoff Emerick engineered, creating a unique sound - a sound which only works if you have the right pressing
  • This dense, darkly serious album contains some of the best songs EC ever wrote - the last of his True Classics
  • Allmusic 5 Stars: "Essentially, the songs on Imperial Bedroom are an extension of Costello's jazz and pop infatuations on Trust. Costello's music is complex and intricate, yet it flows so smoothly, it's easy to miss the bitter, brutal lyrics."
