Imperial Bedroom is a 1982 album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. It was the second Costello album, after Almost Blue, not produced by Nick Lowe. Production duties were 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.

The singersongwriter had grown handsomely into his croon by then check out Little Savage and the heart-tugging Man Out of Time , and the songs, many composed on piano, show breathtaking range, both lyrically the melancholy Kid About It moves like good fiction and musically the bedroom-eyed jazz of Almost Blue the baroque pop of You Little Fool .

Imperial Bedroom doesnt make its point by hurling bolt after bolt of hard-rock epiphany rather, its intensity is cumulative, the depth of feeling evident in the hard-won wisdom of Costellos lyrics and his extraordinary attention to musical detail. He begins with an axiom - History repeats the old conceitsThe glib replies, the same defeats - sung from the inside. Having cast this deterministic nod to the unchanging order of human affairs, Elvis Costello ambitiously sets out to bring new wisdom to old rituals. Of course, the detail and the ornate arrangements immediately peg Imperial Bedroom as Costello's most ambitious album, but that doesn't mean it's his absolute masterpiece. Imperial Bedroom remains one of Costello's essential records because it is the culmination of his ambitions and desires - it's where he proves that he can play with the big boys, both as a songwriter and a record-maker. Elvis Costellos liner notes from the 1994 Imperial Bedroom reissue: As it was our first album to be recorded without the benefit of extensive live experience of the songs, work on the arrangements and even some of the writing continued through rehearsals and into the studio sessions. This was only possible because we were to allow ourselves an extravagant twelve weeks of recording time.
