Let’s just say I’m more than excited for the album to be released, an early Christmas present to myself lol..
Now that’s it’s out, it’s hasn’t disappointed my favourite so far is set the fire to the third bar... I find to slightly hauntingly beautiful!
The perfect winter evening playlist
Ironic given the name, Snow Patrol albums always listen best when it’s cold outside and you really don’t want to leave the house. This acoustic/ambient reworking of some of their biggest hits is a lovely accompaniment to cold autumn and winter evenings. The only dud is the reworking of one of their biggest songs, ‘Run’ which sounds like it is being sang by the Transformers.
Run: not a runner for the best version of Run
The reworked version of Chasing Cars has been given an alternative 'Daughter(esque)' treatment which works and will grow on me. However, the new version of Run just won't. Much as I like Snow Patrol, this has to be the worst version ever recorded...or maybe they've done it as a joke.
Classic Snow Patrol

A great listen. All the best rolled into one Album but done a little different!
Dull bland unimaginative
Snow Patrol were a good band, but they have hit a brick wall with this rework of songs. puts me to sleep
