5.0 out of 5 stars Late Arrival, 17 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Build A Rocket Boys! (Audio CD)
Whoops, namechecked ABBA there! Like the Swedish eurohits, Elbow's music is destined to become the sound of a generation, a comfortable pair of loafers you take out when you are feeling downtrodden and in need of an injection of ..something vital! They remind me of the first time I got into Roxy, every track is a statement, exhilarating the first time and only gets better with each listen. In a time of "r n b", a la Jay-z, etc., Elbow restore faith in true musical genius - Songwriting! Musicianship! Pathos! Angst! Truisms! Every track is like a movie - EPIC!

yeah especially when a Hip-hop lyricist has to work twice as hard as a lyricist of every other genre to keep things interesting is an irony don't you think. I think Jay-Z Reasonable Doubt should be on your top 50 albums list. This is genre that spark from poverty I would be patting Jay-Z on the back for that.

sorry, just don't get the r n b vibe and I don't associate genres with 'class', per se. It's a taste thing and rap/hip-hop not mine..but in the interest of fairness, I will borrow my son's copy and review it..!
