Fantastic, thanks again Misspelt!

Hmmm, wonder if track 8 is the Joni Mitchell song covered?

Yep. I like the artwork. Certainly looks like Oliver's style to me.

Good to see we're getting recognised. Has anyone else noticed that the forum is listed as one of the 'things we like' on the official Elbow website?

Probably not, as Elbow have a 'the' just as they have a 'the' for Birds song which could also be a cover Question


http://www.amazon.co.uk/Birds/dp/B002C7TW44


link to original album 'birds' came from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Grim/dp/B001QU2APQ/ref=sr_shvl_album_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1293025720&sr=301-2



Where has the tracklisting come from? Promos or leak?

No your not, when Elbow had the website for 'Cast..' or' Leaders...' and Powderblue was the elbow fan forum,
that had a link in the Official Elbow website too.

Honest opinion...I think the sleeve is so minimilistic it is verging on banal, and that same light background as before gets so grubby and dogeared so quickly.
Maybe the inside illustrations will be interesting?
Will it be the same as TSSK so that people who buy the album are paying 3 more for just a couple more of Oliver's cartoons, but the same CD? or is there a DVD or extra tracks for digipack?
Elbow digipacks of new albums used to have a DVD with them.

I do like the final choice of title....lots of scope for interpretation with music and art there.

Guy Garvey said of the album: "I didn't know whether it was good or not for a couple of weeks, but I'm very happy with it now."

Garvey said that the band's new material had been written with the tour's venues firmly in mind. "It's impossible not to consider where you're going to play your music live when you write it," he said. "We very arrogantly assumed we were going to be playing arenas very early on."
