Editors’ Notes

The band doesn’t consider it a “greatest hits” album, but rather a collection of their most beloved songs from its 15 years and running career. Considering Glasgow, Scotland’s Snow Patrol are every bit an album band, despite its many UK hit singles (“Run” and “Chasing Cars” presented here in both studio and live versions), Up to Now flows like a long, deeply atmospheric piece far more intimate than most bands who sell 10 million records. Three new tracks, including the single “Just Say Yes” add to the special enticement for fans. But mostly this compilation cherry picks the highlights from the band’s five studio albums and various EPs. “Chocolate” retains its My Bloody Valentine haze.  “You’re All I Have” bleeds the stereo speakers with anthemic grandeur. “Set the Fire to the Third Bar” settles at the piano. “Take Back the City” strips the band to its pop-rock roots. Unlikely heroes at the start, Snow Patrol have blossomed into an arena rock band that enhances the arena.

Snow Patrol is an amazing band! Thus album is for sure worth the money. Great for new fans as well as old ones!

Great Band

This CD is a repeat of the majority of the music I have of them with a mix of new songs. I still don't hesitate to purchase anything they release as they music is beautiful and I have yet to find a song I don't like.

Though I must say it bothers me that the iTunes biography with this CD is wrong as the band is from Ireland (as is mentioned throughout their music).

After failing to secure an international audience for nearly ten years, Snow Patrol broke into the mainstream with 2003's Final Straw, a mega-selling album that showcased the band's fondness for epic, melancholic rock. The group had originally stuck closer to the pop realm, releasing quirky albums that took more cues from Belle & Sebastian than Coldplay (to whom the band would later draw many comparisons). Final Straw proved to be a turning point, however, paving...
