For Elbow fans out there, this is a £1 cheaper than anywhere else plus Nectar points!

It took Elbow 18 years before they found commercial success, with 2008's Mercury Prize-winning album The Seldom Seen Kid. The Manchester band's evocative and emotional brand of alternative rock is one of the 21st Century powerhouses of British music. They now return with their latest release, the brand new fifth album 'Build A Rocket Boys'.
As on their highly-successful predecessor, the band chose to self produce the record in their hometown, while the lyrics are strongly influenced by singer Guy Garvey's childhood. Elbow's sound is as bold and grand as it has ever been on 'Build A Rocket Boys', which includes the single 'Neat Little Rows'.

Q. Are people voting cold because they don't like Elbow or because they can get it cheaper? If they can get it cheaper, please comment so I can save myself a few pence!

Just bought this for my Dad for his birthday - was a tenner in HMV but I had a voucher I had to use, haven't seen it cheaper than this. Maybe no-one likes Elbow? Not a fan myself, find his voice a bit depressing!

This is also part of the 2 for £12 offer instore at Tesco's if you want to pick up another CD for an extra fiver.

I don't like them either. Seem to be one of those bands that the music press love but the public don't really take to. Good deal for a new release though. Heck, I remember when a new cd was £15.

Hadn't heard of them till they won the Mercury prize a few years ago, then saw them on one of the BBC red button specials. We picked up some last minute tickets, but to be honest I wasn't expecting much as we didn't know many of the songs - but it was the best gig I have ever been to. We got tickets this year too and again it was an amazing gig. Their music is very different, and hard to classify, but buy yourself a cheap copy of Seldom Seen Kid and play it a couple of times listening to and maybe even reading the words and you'll be hooked. Elbow don't write memorable choruses, they write a narrative, so the songs take a while to become earworms! If you get chance to see them live, do it. They are even better live than on album and there are not many artists you can say that about these days. Build a Rocket is a nice album, but a slow grower like all their stuff and needs a few plays.
