...it's really rather bloody lovely, isn't it?
Think this is five straight great albums from them
Really great stuff, this new album!
I mean, I'm only one listen in, but I reckon I'm gonna fall hopelessly in love with it. I've always liked the last few albums well enough, although they've never quite snared me as much as they did with Asleep in the Back, but I've a feeling this might be the one that does it...
So far so good. As with all Elbow albums though it's going to take a while.
can't wait to listen to it.
also, might I point out that its been one fucking great month or two for british acts? pj harvey, radiohead, mogwai and now elbow? thank fuck for the old guard.
First track is bang-on but after that it's horrible, Lippy Kids is so dull. Some of the backing singers on a few tracks sound like middle-class parents on a night out of the house.
Easily the worst Elbow album to date. Suck on that.
I think it is stunning. Jesus is Rochdale Girl is amazing.
Also consider: 'worst Elbow album' isn't really an insult.
Dear Friends is really, really great. The rest is all pleasant and stuff but I'm sure it'll grow on me in the next few weeks. I think it does miss a bit of the abrasive edge that they usually throw in every now and then though.
