5.0 out of 5 stars Coming First, 18 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Asleep in the Back (Audio CD)
Its about time. Amongst the new wave and supposedly brilliant art rock bands of tomorrow, elbow arent afraid to make a really inaccessible and darkly simple indie record. Yes, if you're thinking Radiohead a la 'Exit music (to a film)', 'Nice dream' or 'How to disappear...' then you're on the right path. Garvey's vocals, as im sure its already been said, are of arcangel magnificence but there is no backing away from eerie droning and mantra within songs.
I saw elbow live last year and they were better than Muse whom they were supporting, though not quite built for the MEN, they still crammed in alot of Asleep in the back and it was mesmerisng.
Better than 'Cast of Thousands' (which is still good by the way), Asleep in the back doesnt let up. 'Newborn' and 'Red' are probably the best tracks but each song has its individual charm making it hard to pick these favourites. The version of the album is essential as the title song is a highlight.
