EDITORS’ NOTES

Ireland’s Snow Patrol’s second major label release goes lush without going limp, arena-bound without sacrificing intimacy. The opening cut, “You’re All I Have,” roars out of the speakers, but Gary Lightbody never abandons the melody, delicately dropping the notes in sublime resignation. Elsewhere, the band builds ethereal mystique (“You Could Be Happy”) and kaleidoscopic textures (“It’s Beginning to Get to Me”) for maximum effect.
