5.0 out of 5 stars snow patrol rock the show
snow patrol will again blow you away with classics , alot of songs are the ones everyone will know , but there are a few surprises with cover songs, as well as older ones before they were big and to finish with theres a great dvd with great songs from one of the uks greatest bands, an if you stuggle to find a reason to pay extra for dvd special set think again .All in all...

3.0 out of 5 stars Up to Now Review
Sound album but not brilliant. The new songs are not as good as the old ones like Chasing Cars and Run, which are on here and are very good. It's still listenable and can play it with out having to turn it off because it's rubbish. Some amazing songs and a lot of ok songs. They should have waited to later on before a best of album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album now!,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)If you have not already got any of Snow Patrol's music then this album should be top of your Christmas list.
At only £4 for 2 CD's of great music there can be only one reason you don't get it right now...you only have £3.50 in your pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)Being a fan of Snow Patrol they can do no wrong in my eyes, but this album ticks all the boxes. It can be listenes to in the car, at a dinner party or having a quiet moment. Very good value for money.
5.0 out of 5 stars great but ...,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)...where was "How To Be Dead"? Was it not as good as I thought? Or not as big a hit? Or do the chaps dislike it for some reason?
5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd copy,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)not the first copy I have bought but had to replace 1st one after losing some on holiday, great album
5.0 out of 5 stars a history of snow patrol,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)So ostensibly this CD is, as Gary Lightbody himself has said, a history of Snow Patrol over the last 16/17 years. There are songs on here to suit people who've only just discovered snow patrol and for those who have been with the band since the early days, and the songs cover all the albums from songs for polar bears to a hundred million suns, plus songs from Gary's side project The Reindeer section, so there really is something for everyone. Its also interesting because it shows the progression of style SP have gone through, and its interesting if nothing else to see how the band have matured, and how Gary's songwriting has evolved too.
This is album does have some of the newer songs- like just say yes and signal fire- and there are some reworked versions of a couple of the older songs (an olive grove facing the sea being a notable example). This album therefore is probably a good investment for people who haven't yet discovered the back catalogue, and for those who have the other albums its really a judgment call whether you want the whole cd for just a couple of new songs- I personally like it and I think the song list has been well thought out; it really is the bands choices rather than just their most successful songs (though to be fair, Gary has said that he has resisted referring to this as a greatest hits because that implies they've had more than one hit! Gotta love that boy! :p).
It is a good, well thought out album, though it may be more beneficial to newcomers to SP rather than longtime fans, unless you want to have the full collection of SP albums :) xxxxxx
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)I love this group so of couse my view is biased. Great album, good service from Amazon all in all very satisfied.
4.0 out of 5 stars Snow that bad,
This review is from: Up to Now - The Best Of Snow Patrol (Audio CD)I like the earlier stuff. In fact, until I bought this album that is what I was familiar with. This compilation is a good all round perspective of the story so far. For me, however, I realised that I am not a fan of all of their material. I find both discs a bit patchy. Some great songs, some boring.
I guess I would have preferred a singles album.
