Leaders of the Free World [2020 Repress]


Messrs Garvey & Co.'s magic 3rd album, hum-worthy hymns of elation and heartbreak.

'Leaders of the Free World', Elbow's third album, sees the band try to beat down their major league contemporaries with a more ambitious set of songs. The results are impressive.

Beginning with the beautiful, slow-building 'Station Approach', and ending with the short but touching 'Puncture Repair', 'Leaders of the Free World' takes in an a host of minor classics along the way including the captivating title track. The album is the result of a collaborative project between the band and group of film-makers called The Soup Collective.
