The Everthere



It sounds like a Japanese instrument, I have no clue though...

I like The Stops too, it's just not one I'd tell people to "listen for". Of the slow songs, Imagined Affair is probably my favorite.

I was waiting for that signature startling moment, like the screaming guitars on Tailfly and the blaring horns on Starlings...the mystery plucking on The Everthere sort of qualifies.

I was just going over the songs on Leaders and other than Puncture Repair - which isn't a bad song -there really isn't anything on that album I would skip regularly...

I think it may have replaced Kid as my favourite Elbow album

your sweet reassurances don’t change the fact,
that he's better looking than me...

Joyful, did you get Cast Of Thousands yet, I'm listening to it now and it's still a decent album on it's own

Not yet but I almost ran out and bought it when it first came out the minute I heard Ribcage but there was always something I wanted more and then I sort of forgot about them for awhile. But it has become clear that I love Elbow and will have it shortly.

Again, its not a weak album, its just that Elbow albums have set such a high standard now.

I definitely like how we have an active discussion of them, they aren't known enough even now. Particularly in the United States.

When I listen to them I feel like they should be huge but I'm secretly glad they aren't.

they're much bigger in the UK, they're playing Wembly on their current tour.

I know they performed at one of the bigger festivals this year, as I randomly flipped by and caught the end of their performance on one of the HD music channels a few month ago.

I wonder if they played near me this year and I missed them because they had not yet returned to my radar.

My secret desires of keeping people I like less known have only to do with me getting a good seat at the show. It's all about me.
