Editorial Reviews

Spin (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Nicer than Pulp, less sappy than Coldplay, Elbow excel at meticulous orchestral pop that doesn't take itself too seriously."

Spin (p.51) - Ranked #11 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "Always dramatic and occasionally sweet, it's music designed for dark whiskey and wool suits."

Q (Magazine) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese songs refuse to trade in emotional certainties....They're still burning brightly: slowly, maybe, but stronger than ever."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.69) - Ranked #23 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "SELDOM SEEN brought a romantic optimism to Elbow's poignancy.."

Clash (magazine) (p.69) - Ranked #6 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008" -- "[G]randiose yet grounded, soaringly beautiful yet subtly beguiling -- a sky-scraping tour de force of an album."

The Word (magazine) (p.98) - "THE SELDOM SEEN KID is a quiet triumph, poised between joy and heartbreak, revelling in the everyday and full of a sense of being made far, far away..."
