Un des mes groupes préférés , la voix du chanteur ayant pas mal de similitudes avec celle de Peter Gabriel n'y étant certainement pas pour rien. Albums préférés The Seldom Seen Kid (mention pour The loneliness of a tower crane driver) et le récent The Take off and Landing of everything

Discovered them through their most accessible release: The Seldom Seen Kid and that is one of the most complex albums I have listened to. I may still be a casual listener of their music by only listening to that record and other tracks by them, they're a very under-rated band even for the British music industry. Let's hope these guys stay on top of their game for many years to come and may be remembered for making music wonderfully original.

One of my favourite bands. I like their 3 latest albums a lot, especially The Seldom Seen Kid, that was also the album, which shone the light on them for me. But I'm a hugh fan of their concerts, a concert of them is like sitting in a sofa in the jungle and enjoying all the thrills of nature without blinking an eye. Hail Elbow.

Great live experience. Love the band, other band you can get like a dime in a dozen, but not so for Elbow, this is something <>. ELbow is a rela experience, on album and live.

For years the great undiscovered band. Now a bit ubiquitous. Love the first 3 albums, especially Leaders of the Free World. The last 2 are good, but they have bowed a little towards a more commercial audience. Still, great lyrically and great all round songwriters. And Guy Garvey has a good line in audience banter - sadly rare these days.

Bid dumb name for a band, probably an inside thing. I put them off for a while because they were listed as folk music in something I looked at. The Seldom Seen Kid is what I listened to. I like it. Kind of has a Peter Gabriel thing going on at times (but better in my opnion). I cant quite place it but they sound like someone I've hear before. Anyway, they have intriguing vocals, all songs seem good.
