The Take Off And Landing Of Everything
The Take Off And Landing Of Everything
Price: 4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius!, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't too sure about this new record when I heard This Blue World, but I was not to be disappointed! This is a brilliant album, right up with their best work.
Guys writing is at its peak, wonderful symbolic lyrics that perhaps reflect his personal situation at the time of its birth.
Seldom seen kid was an instant love at first listen for me, this record was good but has grown as I've become more familiar, like a lover who isn't just pretty but has depth of character and inner strength you admire and fall in love with.
As an aside if you can see Elbow live do so! I booked tickets before I'd heard any of this new material and boy I wasn't disappointed!

Nearly as good as Coles Corner, which is high praise indeed.
More meoldic crooning fromthe Sheffield maestro. Beautiful lyrics and sentiments and wonderful arrangements.

Ill have to admit I was slow to get into Richard Hawley, but its been worth the wait! This record is heart felt and meaningful, it takes you out of the humdrum and wraps you in a blanket of his voice and and melodic playing and you dont want to come back! After listening to this you simply cannot put the radio on as everything else will sound like a stack of saucepans falling down the stairs.

Several belters on this record and not a duff note to be found. Fully expect Foals to be the big deal at this summers festivals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anthemic!, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Deeper and heavier than Coles Corner and Lady's bridge, this record shows Hawleys musicianship off more, some would say at the expense of the romance and sensitivity of the afore mentioned records, but for me it's a worthwhile trade off! Brilliant.
