Elbow: Cast of Thousands
I am currently making my way through the bands catalog, and this is their second. In my view, it’s a brilliant record, and was my favorite until The Seldom Seen Kid came along.
Not going to regurgitate all the details here. Plenty of that done already.
If you dig a kind of British art-rock minus the riffing, laden with emotion and damp with whiskey, then it’s worth a spin.
Favorite tracks: Ribcage, I’ve Got Your Number, Grace Under Pressure, Not a Job.
