Elbowing in

WITH Christmas approaching new releases are a little thin on the ground, so playing end-of-year catch up I thought I'd pay tribute to Elbow's fantastic 2008 LP The Seldom Seen Kid.
The Mancunians' fourth studio album was the deserving winner of this year's Mercury Music Prize and will no doubt grace the majority of Best Of 2008 lists, so you probably don't need me to tell you it's a masterful work.
However I will anyway - it's a gorgeous, epic, beautiful, life-affirming album, with standout tracks including the driving Grounds For Divorce and the stirring One Day Like This, that should now be sitting in everyone's collections.
