Imperial Bedroom

Elvis Costello & The Attractions

Billboard

His first straightforward rock set since Trust recalls Costello's angrier origins in its song titles, LP art and arrangements, yet the choice of a new producer and the front man's comparatively gentle vocal delivery point up a virtual mellowing for this seminal new rock figure. Emerick's careful sonics and keyboard player Steve Nieve's siring arrangements sound rather polite in the wake of the more urgent, often rough-edged rock Nick Lowe drew from the band, suggesting some older Costello loyalists will be divided as to whether the new songs signal new subtlety or merely a holding action.
