Yeah, if I give it more listens I could definitely change my mind and think "No, this deserves a 6 minute running time" but I guess, just on first listen, I didn't feel it needed to be that long.

I'm not as familiar with this band as the rest of you guys, I only really know Seldom Seen Kid, which I love. But the only track on that album that exceeded 6 minutes was One Day Like This, and it earns those 6 minutes because it builds and then explodes into that gorgeous and life affirming refrain.

Lippy Kids didn't really seem to build to anything, just kinda clogged along. Nice melody, though. And both of the words "booze" and "cigarettes" feature prominently in the lyric, which I always like.

This is the kind of thing I love from Elbow, beautiful simplicity. I like their extended songs like this, Mirrorball, Any Day Now, Newborn, Scattered Black and Whites, Grace Under Pressure, Ribcage, etc. None of them feel overlong, this included.

Dammit. I've gone and made a Bono reference.

I like it. Guy's vocals sound to me slightly processed and they're laid over a driving, propulsive groove. Sounds like there are some trip hop influences in there. Love the melody and really liked the bridge. It's kind of a darker tune, but there are joyous moments.

Chorus sounds like "lay my bones and cobblestones/lay my bones in neat little rows"

And, since this is Elbow, the song builds and builds until it explodes towards the end with intensity.

Similar to your hatred of Elfa.
