5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Majestic! 3 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Having heard Chasing Cars, (the first song to make me stop what i was doing for a long time by the way) I knew that this had to be listened to as an album.

On first listening i didn't get far beyond 'You're all i have' 'Chasing Cars' and 'Set the fire to the third bar'. These three songs alone had made this a worthwhile purchase, but delving further into the album i discovered something more...these songs are not going to fit everyone but then again what songs do?

The fact is that the feeling in the lyrics, and the emotion in the sound make this the most powerful collection i've ever had the fortune of listening to.

'You could be happy' says just that, and how!

There are too many songs of quality to comment individually but feel safe in knowing that this will speak to you, the only decision you have to make now is, are you ready to listen?

don't miss the opportunity!

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer class 30 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
i have to confess that on first listen, I wasn't blown away. However, I was also fortunate enough to see the band live a few months ago and it was one of the best gigs I have ever been to. it also made me go back and listen to the album again - and when you do, you realise the brilliance of the lyrics, the beautiful melodies, and the way it is all so skillfully linked together. Buy it, and listen to it. Then listen again, and another time after that to hear the true beauty of one of the best albums I have the pleasure of owning

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album......... but 15 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
Snow Patrol release their 4th studio album, and the first since the incredible success of 'Final Straw'.

The Album Begins with new release 'You Are All That I Have' followed by the 'Spitting Games' reminiscent 'Hands Open'. But it's Track 3, 'Chasing Cars' that comes closest to recapturing the success of 'Run'. It starts very quietly, and builds into an emotional climax which in itself is great, but it comes nowhere near eclipsing the awesome 'Run', and let's face it, nothing really could.

'You Could Be Happy' is a very gentle track that sounds a lot like a nursery rhyme, the lyrics ring out prominently, sounding particularly heartfelt, it leaves you wanting to play the song again, its that good. Along with that, 'Set the Fire to the Third Bar' is possibly the albums stand out track, it's a duet with Martha Wainwright, and is an absolutely beautiful song. Worth the price of the album alone.

The strings in another great song, 'Open Your Eyes' give it an almost 'orchestral' feel. My only qualm with it is that it seems to end too abruptly when you are just getting into it.

So, the album is fantastic. If you got into the band after songs like 'Run' and 'How to be Dead' then you wont be disappointed. Eyes Open is 11 tracks of that hugely enjoyable and crowd pleasing standard. But there lies my slight problem, and the reason I couldn't bring myself to give it 5 Stars. Gone are the obscure track names ('chocolate' anyone?) long soaring instrumentals and wild guitar riffs. This album is a massive step up for the band, the commercial success of Final Straw has paved the way for a much bigger budget, and a lot more obvious little studio flourishes. For example, the strings that were reserved for 'Run' on the last album are present in several of the tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the year's best albums! 12 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Snow Patrol have topped their gorgeous 'Final Straw' with their new album! They have developed and honed their individual style into a mature and beautiful sound, which has echoes of U2 at their finest, while still being utterly unique.

The lyrics are painfully, achingly beautiful, the melodies a range of delicious mellow numbers and stadium fillers. This, for me, is by far their best album to date, and one of the finest of the year.

Existing fans will not be disappointed and they are sure to add an army of new fans with this outstanding piece of work. There's not a bad track on this. WOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars It Creeps Up On You..... 30 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album I dismissed it as a bit slow and boring - all the songs seemed to blend into one another. I'm glad I persevered though because this album really grows on you. The first single 'You're All I have' that opens the album is a great, pacey rock song. The pace then slows down to include some beautiful songs, the highlights of which are 'Chasing Cars' and 'Set the Fire to the Third Bar' with Martha Wainwright (very powerful). Comparisons to Coldplay are very unfair as this is just so much better in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars No words 4 April 2007
By Mark
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've always liked Snow Patrol, but only liked, my passion was elsewhere but this album is divine. There are no words to expess how good this really is.

Some albums grow on you over time, but not this one. This had me singing along and dancing in the lounge with the sub full up after the first track.

The neighbours know this album as well as I do!

'Eyes Open' was the first Snow Patrol album I purchased, and turned me into a fan. The music ranges from fast and edgy tracks ('You're All I Have' and 'Hands Open') to gentle ballads ('Chasing Cars' and 'You Could Be Happy'), all beautifully sang by Gary Lightbury. The band have long since been compared to Coldplay, and you can certainly hear the similarities instantly, 'Chasing Cars' is their equivalent to 'Yellow'. However, Snow Patrol are an excellent band in their own right, although if you do enjoy Coldplay's music, along with Keane and The Fray, you are almost certainly going to like this album.

'Snow Patrol' is a beautiful and versatile record, there is something to please everyone and well-crafted songs to capture every mood. I regard it as one of the best indie rock albums of the past ten years, and if you're only just discovering Snow Patrol now - this is the one to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, not better than Fallen Empires.
Great album by Snow Patrol, would recommend Fallen Empires more, but this is great with the classic 'Chasing Cars', not a bad tune on the album. Go see them live too.
