I picked up A Hundred Million Suns this week along with a few other goodies and I have to mention how surprised I am by this album. Thankfully the single isn’t the lead track – I always worry about how good an album is when the lead single is Track #1 on the album!
Snow Patrol doesn’t really break any new ground as far as style goes, but the writing is rock solid. Wish I would have written a couple of these. Like “Please Just Take These Photos From My Hands” which is think is amazing.
I like the way the band paints a picture. It’s a gift few artists possess. That ‘gift’ is sprinkled all over Suns. As of this afternoon it’s still on repeat on my player. I generally lean toward the faster-paced songs but when I actually slow down a little I love the contemplation of the slower tracks.
