Elbow have done it again…
A few years back I was on here extolling the virtues of the band they call Elbow.
The Seldom Seen Kid was my album of the year and lo and behold, it went on to win the Mercury Prize and you still can’t watch a whole evening of TV without hearing a tune from that album in a trailer or as ‘mood’ music in the background.
This new album has a lot to live up to and I was elated to hear/see that it does.
From the lush opener ‘Birds’ to the ‘I wish I wrote that’ ‘High Ideals’, this album is a masterpiece. Period!
Build A Rocket Boys has already become the soundtrack to my Spring 2011.
