Great! It's still 'critical acclaim' though... Not multi-selling acclaim

Not complaining, just saying like.

No can't complain, must be the best year they've ever had, fantastic to see them getting so much recognition after so many years of no or little recognition.

Multi-selling schmulti-schmelling. As has been demonstrated by the 800 thousand people who actually paid money for that X-Factor abomination, the "great" British public wouldn't know a good song if it came up and bit them on the bum. Fuck 'em. We know Elbow are great Very Happy

Agreed about the "GREAT" British public, but I'm all for artists like Elbow getting the kudos and indeed the financial rewards that they deserve.

Oh and Happy New Year to all cheers

Lee, I too don't care about what the 'great' british public buys or wants, i just think that elbow deserve more sales for their 18 years of excellence and hard graft - using nothing but 'elbow grease', eh? haha Laughing

Well, they did say that this was their best year ever, so I don't think they're complaining...
I've been saying for years that they are going to be absolutely massive, 'Big Time'!!!
So, as far as I'm concerned this is just another step on that journey.
They will be HUGE... and we were there from the start! Very Happy
Total, total respect to the boys and their craft and thank God they are finally getting the recognition they so fully deserve!
Okay, lecture over... Wink

As I was ranting to my dear old ma today... Any acclaim Elbow gets is highly deserved and reason for celebration. I bet the band are happy! Smile
