CD Review: Elbow - "The Seldom Seen Kid"
We Americans don't always make the right decisions.
VHS or Betamax? George W. Bush or Gore/Kerry? Coldplay or Elbow?
Undoubtedly, some of you are reading this and thinking to yourselves, "What is Elbow? Are they a band?" ...and that is, well, depressing. You should know who Elbow is.
Both Coldplay and Elbow were Radiohead-esque English bands that surfaced the wake of The Bends and OK Computer in the 90s. For whatever reason, Coldplay was the band the masses glommed onto, propelling them to the top of the charts and making them bazillionaires, while Elbow remained in relative obscurity, despite their abundance of critical accolades.
