Dead in the Boot by Elbow is a stunning collection of beautiful, emotive tracks, good enough to have been included on any of their previous albums. This one is an essential buy to enrich your enjoyment of Elbow's outstanding song-writing skills and, if you don't already have them, buy their back catalogue. You won't be disappointed!

most B side's album offerings tend to be substandard versions of their LPs containing tracks that didn't make the cut and for good reason!! there are a few exceptions..listen to 'Pisces Iscariot" by the smashing pumpkins or 'lost sides' by doves' to name a couple of my favourites...elbows brilliantly named b-sides and rarities album 'Dead in the Boot" which must be a joke on there debut album 'Asleep in the back" is further evidence that this band don't take themselves too seriously that is until it comes to writing music..

The album has a very comforting feel to it and is more much more low -fi in its production compared to the bands other releases but this is no bad thing at all.. there are lazy groves throughout and beautiful moments of space and dynamics where the band seemed to be allowing the songs to move along at there own pace with occasional instrumental nudges and of course Guy Garveys voice glides beautifully in and around the music adding emotional depth and colour with his lyrics, this something he's become well know for and its great to see that same quality of song writing here.

For me this album is a bit of an insight into how the band create there sound and despite it being a collection of songs taken from releases over the ten years they've been releasing records it hangs together perfectly as an album in its own right and in my opinion can stand proudly stand side by side all of there other brilliant LPs..

so buy it, sit down late at night with a nice glass of wine and get lost in this beautiful music!!

I never ever write reviews as I tend to keep my opinions to myself, however I could not believe that so called fans of such an amazing band could give this album a one star rating. If you have followed Elbow from their early days then you can't fail to see the similarity to songs from Asleep in the back and Cast of Thousands. This album is very much in the `early years' vein and no doubt helped lead the band along their path to the house hold name we know today.

If you only know Elbow as the band that did that catchy `One Day Like This' and wrote the Olympic anthem, then maybe you need to go back to the beginning and discover where it all began... and what a journey you will take. To sum it up Elbow are without doubt one of the best bands Britain has ever produced and this collection of songs adds to Elbow's already rich tapestry and should not be missed..... Plus the fact that an album of B-sides is far better than the majority of new music forced on our ears these days speaks volumes!

Keep building those rockets boys!!!!!

...buy this. Previously unheard Elbow tracks always welcome but just wanted to say, this is like finding an old, flea-bitten but much loved soft toy in the back of a cupboard. A little bit sad, regretful for having forgotten, nostalgic and full of love. What a lyricist, what a band, and what a nice bunch of blokes. I always loved the more atmospheric, more oblique songs on their albums and i thank them for bringing these to the surface, to be heard and appreciated. Thank you.

...but this record is fantastic in it's own way.

Much of this album is from back when their sound was very different to what it is today - far more melancholic, often very delicate, shatteringly bleak at times... but still beautiful. It's from a time before the boys were married, settled, had kids - things that change a person's outlook and, inevitably, their song writing. In Elbow's case, these things brought about a brighter, warmer sound - a far cry from the early days.

I love this stuff of theirs, it's the band I fell in love with years ago. I'm still a huge fan of their current stuff but if you're coming into this expecting 13 different versions of One Day Like This, you're only ever going to be disappointed.

Buy it, sit yourself down in a comfortable chair with a cheeky glass of something, and listen to it through headphones. If it doesn't move you, I'll eat my proverbial hat.

A compilation it maybe, but if you liked Asleep at the back and A cast of thousands, buy this album.

Looks like reviewers have either loved or hated this album. When I first heard it I wasn't aware that it was a collection of B sides.I just thought it strange that all the tracks were so laid back and mellow.I liked it straight away though. If you listen to Guy Garvey on Six Music then you will know that he has an eceletic taste in music. Anything from George Formby to Genesis. That eclecticism comes through in the album. There are some dreamy ambient tracks that sound like prog rock!
Five stars would be a bit wide of the mark but not as wide as those who have given it a ridiculous one!
It's good...really good. I'm playing it all the time.
