I love Snow Patrol and despite the dire review from the BBC critic I really enjoyed it. Just as well I don't base my purchases on someone else's review : if you like Snow Patrol you will enjoy this. The Place We Ran From

I bought this album after being a long time fan of Snow Patrol and The Reindeer Section, the whole album tells a story end to end, it's beautiful. Haunting lyrics, some lovely vocals from Zooey Deschanel (i'm off to find her album next - and some really amazing songs. If you're a fan of Snow patrol, and of folk music, then buy it. It is rapidly kicking other albums out of my top ten.

There are obvious problems caused by the choice of band name here and you can see the headlines already, "Tired album", or "Load of pony" for example. Would there be any justification in this? To a certain extent yes but overall no.

Firstly I don't consider this to be a "country" album. It is too like Snow Patrol for that. You know the nagging chord sequences, the straightforward and repetitive vocal style, the gradual crescendo by the end of the song as extra instruments join in, you know the score if you know Snow Patrol. So why bother listening?

Well simply put it is rather good. For all the well worn criticism's of Lightbody's style, and he sticks to this template pretty much all the way through as I say above, it has to be said that he has a way with a melody, catchy singalong choruses and the aforementioned crescendos. They may all be a bit formulaic but they work so why change a winning formula? Of course this is all grist to a critic's mill so is there anything here that breaks the mould?

And the answer is yes. A couple of "proper" country (more alt-country really) tracks are included, and very welcome they are as well. "Point me at lost islands" is a chugalong effort with a hint of mandolin, whilst "Dead American Writers" introduces a slice of slide guitar. "I am the landslide" is a bit Neil Youngy and "The good book"s subject matter is definitely "country" Otherwise this is an album that will appeal more to Snow Patrol fans than REM's but isn't as bad as some media critics have made out.

Not a band I'd buy again.....I am an old codger still stuck on 60's music maybe so I may not be the best judge of contemporary music

Love this albumn, bought it when it first came out but never got it back from a friend.
I only bought it because i kind of love everything Gary Lightbody does, and there's a beautiful ballad he sings about a silver necklace on here that its worth buying the disc just for that alone. I also like the Editors and Tom the lead singer has a good song. All in all a great CD - snow patrol with a wee country twist i would say! The second album 'the ghost of the mountain' is fab too - mostly all songs sung by GL. Great to drive to.

There are a host of well known writers/artists on this album and they do not disappoint. Fantastic songs with brilliant lyrics. A nice chilled out album. If you are a Snow Patrol or Editors fan you wiill enjoy this.
