My super review
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/07/2011 11:31:39
They are not from Essex, they are from Bury. This is not a teenage angst album - there is no resemblence to Linkin Park whatsoever. The album is laidback, technically stunning and heart wrenching at times and I would suggest that you only attempt giving it a listen if you have more than two brain cells, otherwise you just won't get it.

Nothing to do with being an 'ANGST TEENAGER' whatsoever!

These fellas have more musical talent than most so called musicians can shake a stick at! I defy anyone not to feel their skin break into goosebumps when they listen to 'Newborn', especially Garvey's ethereal latter lyrics to this particular song. 'Scattered Black and Whites' will bring tears to a glass eye and serves as an insight into this band's immense capacity to deeply move. At a recent Elbow gig, Garvey said that he was suffering from a bad case of LSD - Lancashire Self Doubt! It's served him and the boys well and long may it continue.

I might like this CD if I was an angst teenager but I am not.

They're from Bury

Indeed, but they touted themselves around Mancs to get famous, and a few of them live(d) there. Excellent album nonetheless.

Not from Essex!

Contrary to the previous review Elbow are not from Essex but from the environs of sunny Manchester, continuing the long line of innovative and unforgettable music to come out of the region. Aside from that it's a great and original album that's well worth buying and cherishing if you fancy something more gripping than the usual Radio 1 playlist types.

My girlfriend told me to listen to these Essex based band a few years ago, and I was really impressed. A slow album full of long songs that don't bore. Some very lovely sounds, cool melodies and beautifully crafted tunes.
There are a few songs that get slightly boring but I would give this 8/10 in all. Very original music that's great for chill out evenings by yourself or with friends.
