    Very disappointed, way too slow and boring for my taste. Does not come close to living up to the great reviews IMO. It basically sounds like a bad Catherine Wheel CD.

  1. Elbow understand how to make an album flow without sacrificing the unexpected turns any good record should have.
  2. You'll struggle to find any filler on a record that works magnificently as a whole.

    One listen to Asleep in the Back's "Newborn" invokes a feeling of unmistakable contemplation and a sense of beauty entirely absent from the repertoires of the Oasis and Verves of Brit rock's last generation.
