The Manchester-born dream pop band Elbow released its third V2 album, Leaders of the Free World, to broad critical acclaim in September 2005. Something of a companion piece to that effort, the home video release of the same title offers music videos for nearly all of the tracks on the EP, among them "Station Approach," "The Everthere", "The Stops," and "Puncture Repair." A key distinction exists, however, to challenge this release's claim as a song-for-song replica of the original album: the array of videos eliminates "An Imagined Affair" and "My Very Best," and substitutes "McGregor," a track not included on any of the band's prior records.
