Not only have Elbow released four consistently awe-inspiring records that only serve to match their respective predecessors but they are also possibly one of the best British bands to currently grace this generations musical scene.

Our video of the week this week is the group playing their beautifully haunting track Great Expectations from their third album Leaders Of The Free World. This version is an even more stripped down and acoustic take on the track which manages to increase it's fragility ten fold. Lead singer Guy Garvey treats every word with such care and tenderness that the listener/watcher is left devoid of speech or expression, its that kind of video.

The performance was shot as part of an Acoustic Session that took place in the groups home town of Manchester sometime last year. Check it out and let us know what you thought in the comments section below.
