The Elbow's connected to the...


...Armbone!

We all know the benefits of having an Elbow. It allows you to bring food to your mouth via a helpful little hinge. If it's especially pointy, it doubles as a weapon to ward off pickpockets and vampire nuns. A lucky few of us have excess skin hanging off of it, numb to the touch, thick and leathery. I'd bite it if I could. But I can't, so I won't.

This particular Elbow is very adept at writing long songs that don't seem long (there is only one below 4:00). Skilled at weaving a beautiful tapestry of rock and Peter Gabriel-esque vocals. This Elbow is from across the pond and probably enjoys toast, tea, and the Queen. Lyrically profound, this Elbow is more than just an arm-enabler. This Elbow is about to make your fist pump.

Good review man- I will always love Elbow thanks to "Grace Under Pressure". It is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Keep up the awesome work!
