Album Review:
Elbow-Build a Rocket Boys

It's astonishing that Elbow's band members have been playing together for 20 years.    The songs on their latest album Build a Rocket Boys lack any real flash, though that's entirely the appeal of this UK bar band's unhurried structures.    The sound is a little Coldplay heaped with the showmanship and grownupedness found in those fellas from The Duckworth Lewis Method or even Iron & Wine.    The track With Love is a confidently delivered jawdropper.    Build a Rocket Boys is a beautiful and mature antidote to a world that's still a bit bonkers.
