ONE WAY Recommends [Issue #7]
elbow
By Dean Truitt

Cast Of Thousands (CD V2)

Upon hearing the cascading introduction of “Ribcage,” anyone instantly knows he is in for a smooth, relaxing ride through the looking glass with elbow’s latest creation, Cast of Thousands. The ethereal atmosphere glides along as vocalist Guy Garvey offers melodic musings with calm assuredness. Each song sounds like a majestic postcard from the astral plane and rolls comfortably into the next. The Manchester quintet expertly guides the record to shift as unnoticeably as stars crawl across the midnight skyline. Without exaggeration, Cast of Thousand’s pace and mood are reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Ben Hillier’s co-production with the band deserves generous praise for its inventive expression and unique texture. In an age of grotesque overproduction, one cannot help but adore an album with an intimate feel while maintaining cavernous soundscapes. To compare elbow with Radiohead or Coldplay is a disservice because their artistry clearly stands on its own remarkable merit. Within a few years, elbow will undoubtedly attain the iconic status of other bands that are far less creative or deserving of high praise.
