Elbow: Build A Rocket Boys!
Buy! - (Fiction/Downtown)
This British band’s fifth full-length follows up their most popular album (2008’s The Seldom Seen Kid) with a slow-burning set of atmospheric prog-pop. Frontman Guy Garvey poignantly reflects upon youth, old age and the passage of time on warm, heartfelt songs featuring solemn piano lines, gentle rhythms and gauzy vocals, subtly fleshed out with buzzing guitar and celestial synth textures. 3/9/2011 - Don Yates
