EDITORS’ NOTES

Elbow have never shied away from sentimentality but—inspired by the break-up of a longterm relationship—lyricist Guy Garvey leans into all that arena-sized soppiness on this majestic sixth album. And from the booze-soaked crunch of “Charge” to the showstopping twin-pack that is “Fly Boy Blue + Lunette,” the earworming melodies keep coming. Fittingly, given the presence of the soaring “New York Morning”, this is a record of sky scraping ambition and supercharged emotion.
