ALBUM OF THE WEEK – ELBOW – BUILD A ROCKET BOYS!

91 DAYS TO GO 

Without doubt I have listened more to this elbow album than a lot of other albums during  a weekly period, this is due to the almost majestic nature of this record as it grows and builds every time you listen to it.
It does not on first listen appear to have the crowd pleasers of Seldom Seen Kid,  but overall it feels a stronger more mature better paced record.
This is a band who after 20 years have really found their skin and are happy to live in it.
It’s hard to really single out any individual tunes as it is the record as a whole that makes this such a triumph. However opener The Birds is a triumph, Neat little rows shows another side to these boys and Jesus is a Rochdale Girl is sublime.

 
I saw Elbow a couple of years ago and they were fantastic, with these new songs they will be a truly unmissable live act.
I’m hoping they head out here for Splendour so I get to see them in a standalone venue.

Glastonbury have booked one of the modern day heroes of British music – Go Elbow.
