    Default Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid

    Artist: Elbow
    Title: The Seldom Seen Kid
    Year of Release: 2008
    Record Label: Geffen
    Genre: Alternative Rock

    From Wikipedia:
    Elbow are an alternative rock band based in England. The band formed in the English town of Bury in 1990, and currently comprises lead vocalist, guitarist and lyricist Guy Garvey, guitarist and back up vocalist Mark Potter, keyboardist and back up vocalist Craig Potter, bassist Pete Turner and drummer Richard Jupp. Over the band's 18 year career they have released four studio albums, four EPs and ten top fifty singles in the UK.

    Acclaimed for their innovative sound and front-man Guy Garvey's candid, evocative lyrics, Elbow have received vast critical acclaim and been endorsed by major artists Blur, R.E.M. and U2.

    Anyone else besides me never hear of this band? You guys over in the UK need to start turning us onto artists like these guys because this CD is PHENOMENAL. This is another recommendation from the COO at my work.

    First track "Starlings" starts out with some very delicate drum beats and then at 58 seconds comes a huge crescendo that just took my breath away. WOW. Lead vocals started at 1:44 into the track and the singer has a very pronounced english accent. OK.. I'm hooked already.

    2nd Track "The Bones of You" starts out sounding like it could be a Coldplay song until the vocals kick in. 52 seconds in a huge bass note from a synthesizer can be heard. WOW. I love my Summits!

    Track 10 - "One Day Like This" is another standout.. Lush violins throughout the track.

    I could go on and on about this CD... Also the quality of the recording is very high.

    I'm gonna have to check out their previously released CDs!! Check this one out - it's a winner!
