Customer Reviews

wow people

you guys dont get it. its truly rare for a band to sound good on a live recording. If you think this is what the vocals sound like live you're stupid. Gary Lightbody is truly an amazing vocalist. go see a concert and then decide if you think he is good. Also as an example of what im talking about listen to the red hot chili peppers on AOL sessions the vocals are horrible but actually in concert they are great. It has to do with the amplification of the vocals at a live show

Decent, but want more soul...

The sound is decent, but it's lacking that energy their live shows embrace so well. Maybe it's the song selection, or the uneven mixture of instruments to vocals... whatever it is, something's missing. But decent effort overall in my opinion.

Puh-Lease everyone

If you really weren't a fan of this recording, and someone else has already put your opinions into the reviews--give it a rest! just say that the review was useful. Otherwise, people will have to sift through a load of comments saying the same thing when your simple Yes/No agreement would suffice very well. As for SP covering Bright Eyes-- hats off to them. I can't tell you how many people don't know Bright Eyes, but know Snow Patrol (similar to Elbow) and although those loyal to the originals may be offended, the reality is that "top ten" folk like SP bring those people to try new things. So please do not put SP in the same category as Coldplay. The two bands have very different motivations. If you were to open your ears to any of the lyrics or interviews, you would understand where SP is coming from. I do agree however that this is not the best live recording I have ever heard, but please do not say that Gary can't sing--live recordings are not always the best when it comes to quality. I am also disappointed to see a bit of a lack of depth in the inclusions of this EP considering the breadth of the actual live show last week. And that is my extensive two cents.

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...
