🏆 VOTE COLDPLAY AT THE MTV EMA'S 🏆

Recommended Posts

The Take Off and Landing of Everything has leaked, and I recommend listening to it. I loved it, reminds me of Asleep in the Back to say the least....

It's already been out in some countries i.e. Germany, Australia. That's why it's all over the internet, not leaked.

I like the album, but it might be my least favorite since Cast of Thousands just cause it feels like Elbow on auto-pilot at points. Still, the opening track and the title track both clock in over 7 minutes and do it extremely well. I've noticed the penultimate track on every Elbow album goes really grand, and this is the best in a while.

 

I hope they pursue the style of "Fly Boy Blue" more in the future, though.

 

Oh, releasing your album a week early to prevent a leak? Genius.

Really enjoying the new album. Tried getting tickets for their show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam this morning, but no luck - it sold out in 10 seconds! :O

If it was already released, I do not understand why can't I find a 320 kpbs version to download...

I thought it wasn't going to be released until tomorrow (the 10th), so I was surprised when a Rough Trade employee offered to sell it to me on Friday. Was it released or did she make a mistake? Either way I way I was over the moon.

 

I'm liking the sound of the album. I don't know how I would rank against their other work, but for now I'm just enjoying it. This Blue World especially is a stand out, and Fly Boy Blue is sheer force.

 

Overall a happy Elbow fan here :bliss:

the jazz elements of Fly Boy Blue are wicked, the vocals and lyrics are the big stand-outs in my opinion though...

 

the strings in Charge are great and I love the sound of Honey Sun.

 

In regards to the long songs, I was happy when I initially saw the track-lengths because when BARB was out, The Birds was and still is, one of my favorite songs on the album. Also, I have never really compared Elbow's albums and ranked them, which I guess is something I should do and then share why :)

 

But I am glad other fans are enjoying this album, I'll be curious what the reviews will say, haha

My ticket for the O2 show arrived this morning, rather unexpectedly posted though the letter box between 7am and 8am

Ticket says doors open at 6:30, however I'm guessing the support (bloke from Doves) won't be on until around 7:45 (ish)?

 

O2 show on Wednesday, I can't wait (although I will be zombie-like on Thursday)

I just saw Elbow last night in Cork, Ireland and I was just completely mesmerised. It was such a brilliant show from start to finish, I was left speechless by the end of it and in total awe. I also got Guy's setlist as well, which made it all the more sweeter!

Anyone listened to the new album yet?

 

Elbow albums always need some time to grow on me but I already love Magnificent, All Disco and K2

Magnificent (She Says) is the easy standout for me. Epic strings as usual.
