Archetypal Snow Patrol sound& lyrics. If your a fan of these you won't be disappointed only glad you bought it!

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 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".

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"

Very decent album! Not quite what I expected but certainly better than I expected in many ways. Will need to order the first album now!

The one sad thing about this CD? Most of the music buying public will never get to hear it because the record companies are more interested in profits than musicianship!
