Elbow on So Much Silence

Over the weekend, So Much Silence posted some great Elbow .mp3's from an Xfm radio session. I don't see them in the same light as Coldplay at all - "Mexican Standoff" sounds tons like Radiohead's "The National Anthem" though - but I do think Leaders of the Free World is step up for the band [website]. There was something about Cast of Thousands that I never really got into (maybe it was the old "11 songs, same tempo" debate), but Leaders is a much easier listen and has a little more kick in its step.

Interestingly, Leaders is released in North America tomorrow, Feb. 21, in three formats (CD only, CD + bonus DVD disc, DVD only) despite the fact that it has been out in Europe for quite awhile now.
