Morrissey's position as 2004's comeback king could be under threat if Embrace's recent good fortune continues. Three years ago they were without a record deal and, it seemed, a career. In the past month they've played several triumphant live shows and landed their first top 10 hit for six years, Gravity. In a revisionist twist they are being spoken of not as post-Oasis stragglers but as big-hearted forbears of Keane and Coldplay, whose Chris Martin charitably donated Gravity.
