Incredibly underrated atmospheric indie magnificence.
i'm going to put asleep in the back on.
'newborn' is a bit dull, so I haven't been inspired to listen to anything more
Where do I start?
What do they sound like?
the sound of a fartless arse
That's what Elbow do to you.
i had them pegged as acoustic tedium for so long but this album is magnificent. "bitten by the tailfly" is raw in a way that all the garage rock fakers of a few years could only dream of..
but pleased to hear they are. Their last album was quite excellent. The title track is the best thing they've ever done.
fact there is an 'Elbow - Underrated genius' thread every couple of months. It just reminds me to go and listen to it again. Which is always good.
It's every couple of weeks! But it's good, 'cos Elbow are underrated genius...
Elbow are the 3/4 greatest band of all time, if they were less interesting they'd be massive, but then, they wouldn't be as good.
Maybe if they had the hair cuts?
I manlove Guy Garvey.
All 3 elbow albums are sublime. Grace Under Pressure in my top 5 songs of all time. Always come over as nice blokes too.
listened to the 3rd album much, it didn't seem that good the last time i did. The second album is beautiful though, especially Grace Under Pressure. I should probably check out Asleep In The Back as well, I've only heard Newborn off that album.
their albums do tend to dip and get a bit boring in places. Maybe they shouldn't be listened to all in one go, because the boring songs aren't particularly bad. Listening to Leaders Of The Free World, the end of the album is nowhere near as good as the start. I do agree that they are underrated though, it baffles me how bands like Embrace are more popular than them.
...rock. And my name's on the Cast of Thousands sleeve. OK, that's me and 15000 others, but still.
even though technically speaking they're not...it's hard to put my finger on
ah well, Asleep In The Back is ace
