ELBOW Released Second LP ‘CAST OF THOUSANDS’ 15 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

17 Augustus 2018


Album: CAST OF THOUSANDS – their 2nd longplayer

Released: 18 August 2003 – 15 years ago

NME review: “Like all great albums, even though it takes a few listens to truly appreciate what’s going on here, your journey of discovery is immediately dotted with signs that this is something special. ‘Cast’ sounds wreathed in a kind of celestial soulfulness, awash with atmospheric sonic trickery and jazz/ psychedelic influences – That it does all this whilst sounding human, ordinary almost, is Elbow’s genius. ‘Cast’ may be serious, but it’s never self-important. Rock ‘n’ roll is very nearly at the end of its creative evolution. But, on ‘Cast’ Elbow transcend their influences to produce a virgin sound. A rare pleasure indeed.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: The band that turned bombast into pure passion…
