Oh I totally forgot this was coming out

Amazon sent me an e-mail last night that they shipped the album which I ordered some weeks ago. Can't wait to have it and hear it in its full glory.

Is Elbow touring Europe this year? I have only seen UK dates so far and some festival appearances.

Elbow on The Take Off And Landing Of Everything | News, Tours & Music Videos - XFM

I'm really glad I listened to this. Hearing them talk about the songs made me like some of them more, particularly Real Life (Angel), and knowing what This Blue World is about makes me love it more.

That's great Listening now.

The tour seems to be mostly festival dates outside of UK. A bit of bad timing for me, sadly. But maybe there will be some more dates announced later.

Well I feel like a dumbass, I thought the Elbow album being available early was an iTunes only deal. I just looked through the email my Amazon account is linked to, and I could have downloaded the Autorip from Amazon since Tuesday as well...

Curses.

You are the reason U2 hate their fans.

After first listen I reckon it can grow to be my second favourite album of theirs.

I'm appreciating the whole album a lot more after reading through the lyrics. Really love Garvey's ability to find beauty in the ordinary.

I have had the title track stuck in my head for 24 hours or so now.

This. I was too quick to judge in my first impressions. After a closer reading of the lyrics, and listening to a couple interviews, this album has grown on me immensely. There's an attention to beauty in the details, both musically and lyrically, that's seems to get better with each listen.

It may have just bumped Asleep in the Back out of 3rd on my list of favorite elbow albums.

After one listen, it is an extremely consistent affair. There were a few tracks on it that really soared, though I was doing something else at the time and so don't know the names. "Slow-burner" seems an apt description.
