5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing, 21 Jun. 2001
This review is from: When It's all Over We Still Have To Clear Up (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.
