This was my first Elbow show and to tell the true, I'd only listened to them a few times before the show. I didn't know what to expect. My friends are fanatical Elbow devotees, so I discounted their praise of the band. I intended to let the performance determine the merit of the act and it was my good fortune Elbow actually deserved the accolades.
First, The Watson Twins opened the show with comforting Americana. It was a solid set, though I'll have to see them as headlines to really get their groove.
Guy Garvey, Elbow's unlikely frontman, didn't demand attention when he got to the mike, even though he was holding a trumpet. The trumpet is a braggarts, but it was modesty that I sensed most in Garvey.
They launched into Starling with an impressive light show to complement their wall of sound. Garvey's rich voice showered the audience and we all swooned. The sound was big, yet the modesty was never lost. It was a double sided attach and I dug every moment.

There are different ways a song can be unforgettable, different ways a song can effect someone's soul. Sometimes the lyric touches you, and sometimes the melody get's you. And in some cases a song creates pictures in your mind you will remember every time you hear it.
I thought about this a long time and I think its not the music that creates these feelings or pictures in our minds. Its our mind that crafts those emotions, those pictures, those hopes and those fears into the music.
Music just opens a door and leads us a way. It's some kind of anchor for our emotions, it strengthens our feelings in some way.
Music is able to break a heart. Or even heal one.
Anyway... Whats absolutly essential for a heartbreaking moment is the right girl ;-)
The lists contains many barely unknown songs and some real classics. …
