Chris High reviews the album 'Final Straw' by Snow Patrol on this page

SNOW PATROL - FINAL STRAW 2004

Snow Patrol - Final Straw
There are certain things in life that are essential; air, water, food, love … and the Snow Patrol album, Final Straw. This is what stereo systems were made for from first mighty track to indomitable last. It is sound perfection, lyrically poetic and musically solid in all aspects.  

From the argumentative first song of How To Be Dead, describing a two-way tiff with just one voice, the song is a masterpiece in song writing that most artists would struggle to better within another five albums. Snow Patrol do so within a single track; take a listen to Wow, track two, and tell me I'm wrong.


The album ranges from the deep and meaningful - such as Run - to the plain silly fun stuff - like Spitting Games or Chocolate, and calls at all stations in between.

This album has won award after award in the past 12 months and deservedly so. But perhaps the greatest honour they have been given, is to appear on the same bill as the mighty U2 during their summer Vertigo tour.

A statement in itself, I should say!
