Elvis dove in to the mainstream and came up with a pearl of a pop record. Imperial Bedroom was a classic: brilliant, deeply intimate, intricate, and timeless. his next, Punch the Clock, was dead-on timely: accessible, clever, splashy, and a real pleasure. Punch is full of swing! (seriously.) don't be afraid to enjoy it. but in case your nerves just can't handle the light sound of a bubble pop, remember that the heaving burble of the masterfully boggy and wet-heavy Blood & Chocolate was only Goodbye Cruel World away.
