5.0 out of 5 stars A dark yet blissful masterpiece., 9 April 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Asleep in the Back (Audio CD)
New to Elbow, I bought this album after reading the good reviews on Amazon. I was not disappointed.
Garvey's haunting voice & intelligent lyrics fusing with the dark baselines & haunting, yet blissful, melodies let the listener melt in melancholic bliss.
Like their comparatives: Radiohead - the production is outstanding. Elbow don't settle for a drum beat guitar & a vocal. Open your ears & let in the weird & wonderful sounds which brood away in the background.
Asleep in the back, like all good albums, takes a few listens to fully appreciate. The tone at first seems dark. However after a few listens it all starts to make sense. After more listening I found myself sitting back in ecstatic bliss.
I'm unwilling to name outstanding tracks, because to fully appreciate Asleep in the back, you need to listen from start to finish. All the tracks are beautiful.
If you like intelligent, edgy & thought provoking music - buy this.
