Album Review

Snow Patrol's pop anthems don't lend themselves well to late-night clubbing, but the band's installment of LateNightTales is surprisingly moody, stylish, and fairly danceable. Produced by frontman Gary Lightbody and keyboardist Tom Simpson, the disc weaves a narrative out of 19 tracks, finding the links that exist between Captain Beefheart, A Tribe Called Quest, and Allen Toussaint. The songs slyly bleed into one another — a result of the band's DJ capabilities (who knew?) — and the liner notes help shed some light on the band's selections. This being a LateNightTales release, there's an overarching emphasis on nocturnal ambience, and the album's biggest strength is its ability to sustain that mood over the course of 60 minutes. A close second, however, is Snow Patrol's own contribution, an electro-acoustic cover of INXS' "New Sensation," that tones down the band's epic tendencies for something intimate.

What an Album

This albumn is simply BRILLIANT!!!!! It shows why Snowpatrol became one of the UK's top bands!

Awfulness

First of all, I know this is an AOL session and I don't need to be told it at the start of every track. It's insulting, feels like an advert each time and incredibly annoying after the first time, let alone the sixth. Secondly, this is utter tripe. I love Snow Patrol but this sounds as if it was recorded by a drunk karaoke singer in a pub toilet at 4am. In the dark. On a dictaphone. I honestly think they found the tape lying around and thought they could make a few easy pounds from it and they should be ashamed of themselves. I didn't like it.

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 the way for the success of 2006's...
