Saw them support U2 in Sheffield. They were terrific

That whole album is frickin' perfection.

Need to spend some more time with the other three. Let's see if Cast of Thousands grows on me at all.

Speaking of that album, I heard 'Grace Under Pressure' being played on a local high school radio station around when that album came out, and died laughing. Apparently they hadn't paid attention to the lyrics.

Yeahhhhh, not their strongest track musically, either.

Their cover of Teardrop is rather aces, as is their cover of Running To Stand Still. Really looking forward to their cover of Peter Gabriel's Mercy Street, which is their answer to his cover of Mirrorball.

Yeah, I can't remember what Mirrorball sounds like... I'm going to listen to it now.

It sounds like the prettiest song you've ever heard.

I might just have to obsess about Leaders Of The Free World next.

One of the really enjoyable albums of recent years:

YouTube - Elbow - Weather To Fly

Cori, I've been loving your facebook posts, as I've been on a bit of an Elbow kick, too. A few weeks ago I had Leaders in the car for a while, and your posts have had me listening to Seldom Seen Kid this week. Maybe it's time to go back to the beginning.

Awesome, then my work here is done. I told my coworkers it was my mission this week to push that album on anyone I could, and they were all "Oh, is THAT what's going on with your Facebook?"

When you get the DVD, the audio commentary is worth a listen, too. Some funny stuff, some interesting musical stuff.

You know what's a bummer? Finding out the album isn't available as sheet music. There's a guitar tab book that I could use for such purposes, but it's $28 frickin' dollars. I prefer piano sheet music. Guess I'll be printing out those tabs you can easily find online and just going with chords to see if I can play around with them.

I have an urge to try and plunk out a version of Mirrorball that I can play and sing ... I've never done any sort of arrangement myself for anything, but what the hell. Even if I can just do the chords, it might be fun to try. We'll see if I can sing it in that key - it might be too low, and simply taking it up an octave will make it too high. Bah.

Forget Myself and Leaders of the Free World. Both are arguably in their top 5 of all time for me.

Asleep In the Back is quite a moody album. In a gorgeous way.
