30 Songs, 1 Hour 59 Minutes

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.

Clearly a greatest hits album but...

Why are there no songs from their most recent album ‘wildness’ that’s clearly their best album since ‘Final Straw’
Just for all the haters, note I said album not songs, I agree ‘Eyes Open’ has a couple of monsters on there but as for actual full-album-listenability, Wildness is clearly placed just below Final Straw.
Anybody who doubts me I challenge them to instantly clear an hour from your schedule, turn the lights down and throw on Wildness, if you’re a true fan you will reminisce back to what made you fall in love with Snow Patrol all them years ago and just enjoy their long-overdue return to form.
Anyway, slightly off topic, a collection of greatest Snow Patrol songs is never going to be a bad thing, however, I feel this is clearly a money-making album purely for the fact that wildness is absent from this album, why pay for this with wildness songs when wildness has only been out 6 months or so.
Disappointed but I understand they have to make money, just if this album was made for ‘the fans’ then I feel more effort would have been made rather than trying to gain a quick buck as they say over there.
