Elbow – Leaders Of The Free World (CD Review)

Elbow release the title track from their latest album. ‘Leaders Of The Free World’ may lay it on a bit thick but the track builds to it’s crescendo in the inimitable Elbow style with the rich guitars making their determined way solidly beneath the gently snarling vocal. While not my favourite track from the album it has charm and certainly sounds a lot better than many tracks that try to deliver a political message.
