The clip I heard on the Program sounded OK.

I really like the album, but now they have been given the kiss of death that is the Mercury Prize, watch them vanish! The only criticism about Elbow is that they do not seem to evolve, they are stuck in this familiar sound. Rather like they have found a formula that works and they are sticking with it. I think they are intelligent and musically talented enough to grow and move on to form other sounds, then again what do i know?
