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!

...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.

I was a fan of elbow recent since Seldom seen Kid, Build a Rocket Boy was also a great hit with me, this album I can admittedly play all the way through, the lyrics can be terse at times but always with depth and warmth, I thoroughly enjoyed the album, what's all this non-sense about being a fan from the start, anyway I bought cast of thousands, alseep in the back, and leaders of the free world after SSK, this album carrys on the tradition of quality music, for any fan of their music, give it time and you will be rewarded, I hope they do another b-side album, where's 'ticker tape' and 'the lonely engineer' both were class b-side singles. I hope they do release another as good as this, keep up the good work elbow, another hot purchase!!!

If you're an Elbow fan, this is a must for your back catalogue. You can really see the band's development throughout this recording. It's also a wonderful read to see what Guy Garvey's written in the inlay regarding their journey through this, their reason for the cover picture and of course the very poetic way he writes the lyrics. I love this band.

This album is a collection of rather beautifully downbeat B-sides that doesn’t contain any big numbers. They’re mostly steady, lo-fi grooves, propelled by blue- collar bluesy riffs, detached electronic bleeps and mournful pianos. Would recommend to those who are and those who are not Elbow fans.

Took some getting used to because personally I found it a lot less up beat than there previous albums and much more like there less popular early stuff. In fact I found the music a bit heay going at first, however, after about 5 plays I warmed to it, went to see Elbow live at MEN in November and now I absolutely love it. Elbow rule.

...it still deserves a place in your record collection. And, like their northern peers, Doves, they manage to produce a B-sides/rarities compilation that would surpass many a band's studio album. For me, there are no dud's, in fact each song merits its place in the annals of Elbow's musically brilliant history. It's just that it lacks the exquisite highs they have so often produced. So don't write it off just yet and don't take our word for it. It is Elbow after all!
