Beautiful, Melodic and Heartfelt!
on 1 January 2006
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.
