Ummm, I thot "Asleep In The Back" was a decent album. However there's this band out of Sweden called "Leaves" that does a much better job at emulating Coldplay and Echo & The Bunnymen. I'd def be curious to hear Elbow's new album. What would you rate it?

Yeah, the whole album is good. If you can get past the fact that it sounds like Chris Martin fronting the Bunnymen. But yeah, very 80's with some songs that were def written for radio play.

loveth Elbow. and imho they're hardly a Coldplay imitation. I prefer them to Coldplay hands down. Much more interesting.

anyone know when the album comes out? anyone want to burn a poor peace corps gal a copy? *shameless self-promotion*

Last of the men in hats hops off the coil
And a final scene unfolds inside
Deep in the rain of sparks behind his brow
Is a part replayed from a perfect day
Teaching her how to whistle like a boy
Loveís first blush

Chorus
Is this making sense?
What am I trying to say?
Early evening June
This room and a radio play
This I need to save
I choose my final thoughts today
Switching off with you

All the clocks give in
And the traffic fades
And the insects like a neon choir
The instant fizz
Connection made
And the curtains sigh
In time
With you

Chorus 2
You, the only sense the world has ever made
Early evening June
This room and radio play
This I need to save
I choose my final scene today
Switching off

Ran to ground for a while there
But I came off pretty well
