Biography

While some people have imaginary friends, Gary Lightbody has imaginary bands. He gives them names and song titles. Just occasionally, they become real.
Already the singer and guitarist in Snow Patrol, one night at a Lou Barlow show in Glasgow, Gary imagined The Reindeer Section. The next day he refused to let any of the 20-odd people he’d drunkenly approached forget that they’d ... Read more in Amazon's Tired Pony Store

I hesitate to call Tired Pony a "super group" as all too often such collaborations fail miserably, but with Snow Patrol's lead singer Gary Lightbody fronting for others from the likes of REM and Belle and Sebastian, this certainly is not the case.

When the idea was conceived to put together Tired Pony, it was Lightbody's ambition to bring the listener a more Americana/Folk style recording, but whilst "The Ghost of the Mountain" may not resemble those genres totally, it is largely a much more stripped down affair compared to his own band's offerings.

The Snow Patrol front man's expressively plaintive vocals are made for such songs as the evocative "all things all at once" "I don't want you as a ghost" and the gentler acoustic guitar lead "carve our names" and "your way is the right way home".

I think Snow Patrol fans and those who aren't will be equally pleasantly surprised by what they hear on both this album and the debut "Places We Run From".

Musical appreciation is subjective of course but I love this album - and think Snow Patrol fans would too probably. Most songs are instant classics and I seem to play little else at the moment. The backing singers are excellent too and I love little touches like the tremulous Mandolin of Peter Buck shining through on occasion to give little notes of REM

I love this latest CD from Tired Pony - it makes easy listening and Gary LIghtbodys vocals are always exquisite ( apart from him effing a bit on track 3 - no need Gary)
Catchy little numbers with a slight country vibe. Lots of lovely guitars. Ive really enjoyed playing it over and over.
(i am a big snow patrol fan)

Its a very recognisable experience and the country style suits. A good alternative to Snow Patrol. Well worth a listen

This album will appeal to fans of Snow Patrol more than those of the other members' bands. Gary Lightbody just can't seem to escape from the chunka chunka rhythms leading to anthemic chorus template for long and the annoying thing is, when he does, it is very good indeed. The lush acoustics on Ravens and Wolves and the electro bops and beats on Punishment are mould-breaking and all the better for it. To be fair though, even the anthemic stuff is often very well done and the title track is as good an example of this as any. The by now traditional ethereal female backing vocal is also present and correct, exemplified by Minnie Driver giving it laldy on the closing track. All in all I have to say that I do like this album, it just takes a while to get going.

This a bit of a grower and now I have listened to it several times I am beginning to find there are quite a few good tracks on this album. There are potentially some classics particularly the last track "your way is the way home"

I am a fan of both Snow Patrol and Tired Pony and the distinct voice of Gary Lightbody shines through. I would think ardent Snow Patrol fans would like this album as I do. There's even a track which to me, has shades of Brian Ferry or possibly David Bowie and another that sounds a bit like Benny & the Jets.. However, if you are looking for a Chasing Cars selection then this is not it, although it does have a Jackknife Lee prodction . If you are looking for a similar album to the last Tired Pony one, then probably it is to a certain extent, but with less of the "country" feel. Also has some good music from the rest of the band, and, although I have only played the album a couple of times, there's, to me, nothing to dislike about it.
