Elbow Question: Should I Spend The Extra $$$ On The Import CD Of Asleep In The Back?

It cost $37, but it includes the title track, plus a bonus track ("Can't Stop"). There are 12 songs in total, instead of 10. The normal Canadian version (which doesn't include "Asleep In The Back") is way cheaper. Is it worth it to get the longer version? I haven't heard the title track yet. Thanks for your imput.

Sicy,

ELBOW. They are apparently really good. In the thread title, I couldn't fit in the entire word, but it's supposed to say "Elbow question:" All I had room for was "Elbow que:" Sorry for the confusion. Being a mod (you are a mod, right?), maybe you could change that for me? (You could take out the word "version" and replace it with "CD" to make it all fit.) Thanks.

I guess you don't have a cd burner? because you can d/l those bonus tracks from audiogalaxy or winmx, but anyway, "asleep in the back" is an excellent song, I have no clue why it wasn't on the North American versions

"Asleep In the Back" and "Can't Stop" should both be on the US version. "Asleep In the Back" wasn't on the UK version because they wanted to rework the song a bit. The US version is on Amazon for $10.99. Since I don't live in Canada, I don't know how much shipping would be, but "Asleep In the Back" is one of the best (if not the best) tracks on the album. If you can't order through Amazon or another site, I would keep looking for the US version.

It is a good cd. I'd just buy the cheap version and download the other 2.

Sula,

Thanks so much! I'll e-mail you. I listened to the original CD, and it's beautiful too. I'm sure the American version is even better from what I've read.

I listened to 'Scattered Black and Whites' on a pair of headphones at the store, and my oh my. It blew me away. So beautiful. The ending does sound like 'Streets'!

the show CSI used music from "Scattered Black and White" during their closing segment last night -- as they were showing scenery thru Miami -- really cool moment

I wish I watched that show now! Awww...Elbow....I wish it were June already! Except for the heat, humidity, and general summery-ness.
