Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid (2008)

It has been several years and this is still the only album I have listened to that comes from this amazing English band. Why not more? Simple, because this record has achieved something that I have yet to find in any other musical offering - actual poetry put over music, and I’m afraid I might like the rest of their catalogue less. In fact, the only reason it doesn’t rank as Nr.1 on my favorite album list is my preference of extreme genres over everything else.

With that said, I can only recommend it to anyone (by like, 1000%) regardless of their musical taste. Just listen to this song (and after that, the rest of their concert) and tell me it isn’t one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written…
