Used to be far more Elbow fans around here, most either aren't around any more or just don't post nearly as much in this section of the forum. Here are a couple threads for the last album:

I've only managed to hear stuff via youtube but I've liked everything so far, I am currently obsessed with Switching Off:

You're right. That is a really good song. And so is the "Switching Off" song mentioned by elevated.

I knew I should've got "Cast of Thousands" instead of "Leaders of the Free World"!

Going to get the new album today,

I've never thought of comparing Guy's voice to Peter Gabriel, but now of course the similarity is striking,

I finally got to listen to the new album yesterday and it's another winner, I love the duet with Richard Hawley and "An Audience with the Pope" is a nice surprise, I don't think Elbow sounded this sexy and groovetastic before,

I was actually just going to reply to this thread yesterday and ask you what you thought, because I was listening to it for the first time as well. It's early to say with just one time through but this may be their most consistent album from start to finish yet. My local store was selling it for $7.99, so I'm assuming you can probably find it for quite cheap in other places in the US. Definitely worth checking out for that price.

Elevated, I really don't think it would be a bad move if you were to break down and just get the rest of their catalog. If you're liking Cast of Thousands, I think you'd like everything else as well.

thanks! I think I'll try and pick up TSSK this weekend while it's so cheap...

That's the very first thought that ran through my head the first time I heard Elbow, Wow, this guy really sounds like Peter Gabriel!

I just listened to "Leaders of the Free World" again -- gave it another chance-- and I liked it much better on this re-listen. Especially the first song! Very mellow, but still really good. I guess that album's just a grower. I still need to give it a few more spins.

Yeah, 'Station Approach' is one of my faves.

The concert last night was INCREDIBLE. The band were spot-on, and their down-to-earth humor made the show very personable, especially given the tiny location----the 6th & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC. We sat in friggin' pews! My brother-in-law and I got there early and got the very first pew...pretty cool. Kinda lucky to have seen them here in the US where they aren't as big...I know they play much bigger places in Europe. The sound was amazing. Easily one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Here's the place:

I picked up the new album the other day, and really like it. I just love his voice.

Of all their albums, I think my favorite (so far) is Leaders Of the Free World.
