"You've been playing too rough lately"
A stunning debut from Elbow, and I'll say it now, an album they've never bettered.
Actually, now I've written that aloud, I'm not 100% certain I believe it. Guess we'll see, if any more Elbow albums come up in this thread (they will).
Most of the tracks are fantastic, Any Day Now
, Powder Blue
, the beginning of Newborn
(!), and I love Don't Mix Your Drinks
and Coming Second
. The version I got was the 2001 release, which was sans the also excellent title track, though for iPodular purposes, I now have that song shoehorned in artificially, as per the 2002 re-release.
The winner is Red
, cos it's (still) sublime.
