Snow Patrol, comeback
The Northern Irish/Scottish rock group are back after a four year absence...
It’s a great comeback for Snow Patrol. The Brits have simply let some time pass since The Greatest Hits (four years to be exact), which already sounded like a career review. Seven years since Fallen Empires . Time, for the friends of Irish singer Gary Lightbody to bring him back to writing and help him out of his deep depression, and then onto the editing of Wildness in Los Angeles.
The man who writes as much for Taylor Swift as Harry Styles, and whose songs end up being the main themes of the most watched TV shows in the world, with Grey’s Anatomy, in this seventh opus he has put the essential ingredients required for every mainstream pop album: a quavering voice, melodramatic guitar, expiatory existentialist lyrics (Life And Death, Life On Earth, Don't Give In). Even if you won’t find any tracks with a lot of potential, fans of the hugely successful Chasing Cars will be overjoyed.
