Album: Elliot Minor, Elliot Minor

They're regarded as the next big thing in pop ... But despite a rich musical background Elliot Minor fail to deliver the expected bag of goodies.
They cannot be blamed for effort — but maybe it's a case of trying too hard.
EM specialise in combining rock and classical music — guitar with piccolo. The York five-piece also do a mean three-way vocal harmony.
This results in an over-complicated strange brew and each track more a mini-opera than a pop tune. At its best this should sound like a mix of Muse,Queen and Jim Steinman's work with Meat Loaf.
What you get, though, is Busted crossed with The Darkness. Very strange indeed!
