Given that there wont be a "Not listening to" thread....the new Elbow album, been busy today, match and party tomorrow, christening on Sunday, looking like Monday afternoon.

They are on the decline I feel. Still better than a lot of tripe doing the rounds these days but this album and the last are fairly week compared to their stellar first five albums.
You see i came in to them late, proper dad rock time, I can imagaine if you were an in there at the start fan, I didn't jump in till "Build a rocket boys" after nudging by friends and been happy to take the ride ever sinse.

I got into them unsurprisingly when they started getting more airtime for Grounds For Divorce. I've barely listened to anything after that though. Build  a Rocket Boys just seemed like they were desperate for some more arena anthems. Always go back to the earlier albums. Gave the new album a listen yesterday though and really like it.

Loved Guy Garvey's solo effort last year, too.

Guessing you have them already but album 3 and 4 are essential. 1 is different in sound but great. 2 possibly their most poorly reviewed but as an album it's great in a low key sort of way. Album 5 is very good but hints at repeating the commercial success of 4. 6 & 7 have moments but ultimately diminishing returns IMO.

Agree with all of this Elfster, the b sides LP "Dead in the Boot "is worth a listen too, certainly better than the last couple of albums . I've seen Elbow many times and their live gigs are going downhill as well,  far too much of the arm waving anthems,  not enough of the great older tunes .

I remember how the meaning of words began to change. I remember how different became dangerous.

Never heard of him or that before but it has now been spotify'd.

Anyhoo came in to post this, got to be in the right place emotionally for it but heard it on the radio a while back and I've had it on every time I've been out over the fields with the mut.



Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Blast from the past and listening to it several times a times a day, my current earworm and girl 2 has taken it on as cooking music.

I first heard them at a show when they opened for Elliott Smith. Had to be 15 or 16 years ago. I went out and picked up The Sophtware Slump the next day-ish.
