Met Final Straw brak het Schotse Snow Patrol twee jaar geleden terecht definitief door naar een groot publiek De opvallende mix van gruizige lofi en gepolijste pop bleek volstrekt onweerstaanbaar De druk op opvolger Eyes Open is daarom torenhoog maar de Schotten kunnen de druk gelukkig aan Eyes Open is de meest overtuigende lp van Snow Patrol tot dusver en laat horen dat de band in muzikaal en compositorisch opzicht enorm is gegroeid Het is goed te horen dat de Schotten met U2 getourd hebben maar gelukkig heeft Snow Patrol haar eigenzinnige geluid behouden Iedereen die na Final Straw nog niet overtuigd was gaat nu alsnog voor de buil Absoluut hoogtepunt is wat ons betreft het met Martha Wainwright opgenomen Set The Fire To The Third Bar maar eigenlijk bevat Eyes Open alleen maar hoogtepunten.

One of the most popular British alternative groups of the 2000s, known for sweeping pop songs and sentimental, cinematic ballads.

The anthemic indie rock sound of Snow Patrol provides a bit of hope and promise among the many acts attempting to fit into a certain genre or scene. Snow Patrol belongs to their own scene, and their third album, 2004's Final Straw, proved that with several global hit singles such as "Run," "Chocolate," "How to Be Dead," and the reissue of "Spitting Games." British fans once more proclaimed their beloved Snow Patrol as a true rock & roll band while American audiences finally took notice of the Scottish collective. The band's fourth album, Eyes Open, doesn't fall short from where they left off; in fact, Snow Patrol's hungry rock sound only gets bigger and better this time around. All guitar hooks and singalong choruses are firmly in place, and Gary Lightbody is an underrated frontman. On Eyes Open, he once again writes songs that are from the heart and true to self-reflection without getting too sappy and too overjoyed. From the playful name-dropping of Sufjan Stevens on "Hands Open" to their passionate delivery on "It's Beginning to Get to Me" and "Shut Your Eyes," Snow Patrol's approach is epic. They are the kind of band that embraces simplicity as beautiful and human flaws as art. The lullaby-like "You Could Be Happy" and the passionate buildup of "Make This Go on Forever" are evident of that. This 11-song set is a masterpiece, so keep your ears and eyes open for Snow Patrol. They're onto something big.
