Not One of Their Seminal Works!
on 24 July 2011
Elbow are one of those bands who manage to get under your skin in a very subtle and sub-conscious manner. That was certainly the case with their previous album "The Seldom Seen Kid" which was like a fantastic novel - you could not put it down.
Sadly, this album is OK but lacks instant grab of previous albums. There is no one track that makes you want to click the replay button. Die hard Elbow fans will love it come what may but this is not one of their seminal works.
