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!

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!!!!!

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!!

...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.

"Dead In The Boot" is a collection of B-sides and songs that did not make the cut for one of the 5 superb Elbow studio albums. Surprisingly, this collection of songs as a whole works and could have easily passed as Elbow's sixth studio album. The songs blend very well together which pays tribute to how consistently good Elbow have been over the past 11 years.

"Whisper Grass" is a solid opener with a strong Rock influence and heavy layered arrangements. "Lucky With Disease" is much lighter and peaceful with atmospheric arrangements and softer vocals. "Lay Down Your Cross" is a very sleepy ballad and it is the only song that I find a bit bland and ordinary. "The Long War Shuffle" is a catchy Blues influenced song with a likeable and uplifting melody. "Every Bit The Little Girl" is a very soft yet beautiful creation with gentle vocal harmonies and mesmerising sounds making it the first highlight of the album. "Love Blown Down" has an interesting percussion patter and a chilling chorus with a mournful piano and a heavy bass. "None One" is yet again a mellow and hypnotic piano led creation whilst "Lullaby" is another sophisticated Rock influenced song with clever vocal harmonies. The powerful "McGreggor" has a very haunting bass and percussion combined with plaintive vocals from Guy Garvey - this song is very reminiscent of Peter Gabriel's extravagent arrangements. Strangely enough, this song is followed by the second highlight "Buffalo Ghosts", a tender ballad, with once again Peter Gabriel sounding melody and vocals. "Waving From Vocals" and "Snowball" are very atmospheric and very pleasant tracks to listen to with interesting arrangements. The final song "Gentle As" as the title suggests is a gentle ballad with a sweet melody.
