Elbow!!!

Aren't they just great???

They've released their latest album The seldom seen kid.
Go to www.theseldomseenkid.com and listen to samples of the album.

I think it's such a shame that they aren't as big as Coldplay or Keane or something else out there (hmmm, U2! ).
And I am in LOVE with Guys voice!!! It always gets me goosebumps.

Nothing against Coldplay. I got all their cds, too. And altought the album of Coldplay and Elbow always sound similar I think that Elbow are better. At least I am not getting bored so fast.
As I said, no offending of Coldplay fans!!!

This should be an Elbow thread!
What do you think of them.
Should they be the leaders of the free world????

Love them Fantastic band, consistently great albums. I agree, they (and their musical cousins Doves) should be bigger than they are.

And Guy's voice is a thing of beauty, So wonderful and warm. He seemed like a lovely friendly bloke when I saw them live last year.

Looking forward to their new one!

Most under rated band besides Doves.

For those of us in N. America, Elbow are actually on tour here in the next month or so. You can see the dates here:

I LOVE Elbow & agree that they really should be bigger than they are. "Station Approach" is one of my favorite intro tracks ever.

I'm seeing them on April 27th when they come to DC---can't wait!

I only ever heard their first album, but I liked it a lot. Certainly a shame that they've never exactly made it into the mainstream.

yeah, that's what even Coldplay'd said!
Don't know why. The new album is amacing. their music isn't comparable and though they didn't make it to mainstream.
It's strange...

I have "Leaders Of The Free World", but it just never caught on with me for some reason.

I've always wanted to check out "Cast of Thousands", but have never gotten 'round to it.

I do like the lead singer's voice, though. It reminds me A LOT of Peter Gabriel's voice and I Peter Gabriel's voice!!!!
