One could be forgiven for believing that Elway’s Delusions was the product of a Chicago band. The album was recorded there with Matt Allison, famed for his work with Chicago bands like Alkaline Trio and the Lawrence Arms, and those two bands are obvious influences on the band’s sound. Lyrically, however, Delusions is unmistakably Coloradan. The group’s hometown of Fort Collins, as well as Denver and even the Western Slope, all receive shoutouts in one song or another. As a resident of the state for the last 17 years, this gives me a personal connection to the album that I don’t get from my favorite Chicago, Florida or Jersey-based bands.
