Product Description


Mad for sadness? Then Northern Irish four-piece Snow Patrol could be the band for you. Fully paid-up members of the generation of youthful Brit-rockers--see also JJ72 and Muse--Snow Patrol twin their histrionic-heavy guitar-fuzz to the vulnerable, reed-thin vocals of a teen-angstified frontman. But ignore lead singer Gary Lightbody when he hisses that he's "never gonna fall in love again" on the opening track of the same name; When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up is an album about giving your heart away, feeling it break and desperately trying to reassemble it before the next emotional meltdown. Perversely, some of this record's greatest moments find amps turned down and emotions laid desperately bare: the acoustic "Make Love To Me Forever" and the love-laid-to-rest lament of "If I'd Ever Found The Right Words To Say". But that's not to say that the ballsy pop songs--see "Ask Me How I Am", the sound of a harmony-laden Sebadoh playing hip-hop through a detuned radio--don't make the grade. And when it's all over? They may have been casualties in the Wars Of Love, but as Lightbody whispers "we won't get much sleep" on the closing "Firelight", you know that--like you--Snow Patrol are ready to flip the record and live it all again. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Melodic and Heartfelt! 1 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This could be the soundtrack for anyone who has fallen in love, had their heart stomped, declared celabacy but still has the capacity to fall madly in love again! This is the beauty of the album as we start with 'Never Gonna Fall in Love Again', go through a rollercoaster of emotions with haunting melodies on tracks like 'If I found the Right Words To Say', 'An Olive Grove Facing the Sea' and 'Make Love To Me Forever'. We get some more commercial sounds with the likes of 'Ask Me How I Am' and 'Chased By... I don't Know What' and even a hint that some of this heartache may be down to him on the heartfelt 'On/Off'. Snow Patrol take you there an back in one of the most simply written (check out the title track, I think everyone has been there) yet beautifully heartfelt albums that my ears have had the privelidge to listen to. If you like Final Straw, step back in time and get this. Admitedly, you may not appreciate it's brilliance at first, but before you know it, you'll be lost in loves gone past with a lump in yout throught.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow Patrol Raw 26 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is brilliant if u want to hear where the sound of modern day snow patrol came from. The album as a whole is a very slow affair with very few really big anthemic pieces such as chasing cars and run but the foundations are there. All the songs are beautiful and have real meaning and this is shown by the emotion given by lightbody in every single track. Highlitghts for me have to be "last ever lone gunman", "one night is not enough", "on/off" and "when it's all over we still have to clear up". My final word on this album is try and find it for as cheap as possible cos it has been around for a bit now. [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - a must have 2 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great album.
I only heard of snow patrol this year and whn i found out that they had released another 2 albums beside Final Straw i decided t check them out and i was surprised at the quality of this understated band that had been formed in 1994 and i hadn't heard about them. I highly recommend this album to any Snow Patrol fans and their most recent album Final Straw.
The songs are sung with such emotion that you will be totally fixated on the band.
Some of he songs are very quiet and may have to read the sleeve to read what the vocals are but i think that the quietness of the vocals adds emotion to the songs and makes you fill up with emotion after hearing the pain and anger that the lyrics include.
Once you know what the lyrics are you will understand the emotion behind the songs and really get into the meaning.
Gary Lighbody voice takes you into the emotions that he is feeling on some of the songs (An olive grove facing the sea and If i'd found the right words to say)
Great songs include:
An olive grove facing the sea -a beautifully sung song has so much emotion too it.
One night is not enough,If i'd found the right words to say and
Last Ever Gunman.
This really is a great album after you have played it a few times you will totally fall in love with this album.
A must for Snow Patrol Fans

This is a beautiful album, full of songs that take your emotions, twist them up and ring them out.
'When It's All Over' is a much quieter, more laid back album that Final straw, but still unmistakably Snow Patrol. Gary Lightbody's lyrics are full of emotion, and Olive Grove is now one of my all-time favourite songs.
This would be a great addition to any album collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing 21 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
Snow patrol were the first band I saw live this year and quite frankly the blew me away. I had heard of the band before, but I had never heard their actual music. Gary Lightbody (their singer) really motivated the crowd to really get into the music and after the gig I could`nt help but buy this album..
The first couple of listens to this album will seem slightly dissapointing, but dont fret this album will definitely grow on you and even the more inaccessible tracks such as "firelight" and "batten down the hatch" will eventually be adored.
This album is made one hundred percent better by the inclusion of the lyrics on inside sleeve. It is often hard to make out what Lightbody says and once you can truly fathom the lyrics then the songs take on a whole new dimension.
Lighbody sings predominantly about his lost/forbidden loves, this is obvious is in the stupendously good "olive grove" and "one night is not enough". As far as song themes go, the nihilistic "lone gunmen" is also very interesting (lets just hope it isnt true).
The bass riffs in Snow Patrol`s music are very original for this style of music, but the CD version of these riffs do not do them justice as live the bass playing is one of the things that really grabs your attention.
Mr Quinn their drummer is quite good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class ! 13 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of Snow Patrol before this album. When I heard 'One night is not enough' on the radio, I simply fell in love with their unique sound- possibly the finest single of the year so far. But the album certainly doesn't rely on this one track. It is full of contrasts and highly emotionally charged, particularly the title track. Other highlights include 'An olive grove...' and the more upbeat 'Last ever lone gunman.' Tracks like 'Ask me how I am' also show the charm which sets this apart from similar artists. If you like your music emotional, you'll like this. If you don't, you soon will.
