So I took all my Elbow CDs up to my friend's house in CO for Thanksgiving and introduced him to them by saying "By the time I leave on Sunday, this will be your new favorite song" and put on "One Day Like This."

He bought the CD yesterday.

It's quite amazing that a song such as One Day Like This isn't a huge hit.

The song is 3 minutes over the MTV generation's attention span limit and Guy isn't hot enough for Tiger Beat magazine.

Rock really doesn't hit mainstream anymore, particularly well written and artistic rock.

My friend just texted that he's disturbed by the horns in Starlings. It's the only song he doesn't like.

I love Starlings! But in comparison to their other opening tracks, it's not as good.

Yeah, Starlings doesn't really do it for me, especially compared to, say, Station Approach. I actually thought it was even worse live....the horns were just out of place and almost acoustically offensive compared to the rest of the show.

I don't dislike The Fix, but it's probably my least favorite.

there's something about the tune and the other guy's voice...

not Guy, but the other guy...



you know what I mean...
