Snow Patrol I've come to think of as very like Coldplay: cold, corporate, efficient, technically proficient, content-free lyrics. Suit music. The Spandau Ballet of the noughties. This song started off an 8, but has fallen to 3 and keeps falling.

Meh.
sounds like biffy clyro in this song - pretty dull. 

bottom line - it's 'indy music' by numbers - formula. zero originality.

{#Whisper}  I have a theory:  Bill added the PSD option because he knew Snow Patrol was going to stay in the playlist.  One of his relatives is in the band.  {#Group-hug}   {#Nyah}

I cannot say enough good things about this band!  One of the best to see live if you get the chance. 

I love a band that takes simplicity to the level they do.  Keeping it simply but still entertaining is an art.

Not again! 'Primal Music' I don't think so chaps.

Bill, you've played it once too often! Snow Patrol are overrated - not total crap, but not very good.

Feelings of boredom are never far away when this band are playing... To the 'Patrol: If I did tie you to a rocket and send you off, would you take your sound equipment with you and stay out of earshot? Or just patrol distant snows quietly? {#Doh}

I have really tried to like these guys, but they seem so repetitive and ultimately bore me to tears or annoy me to distraction. There. I said it.

 Thanks for turning me on to this group Bill, they just keep coming through with good music. I think the first time
I heard them was 3-4 years ago along with PorcupineTree (for the first time) and they have become a permanent and enjoyable part of my days and nights... Old dogs can learn new licks.

I interpret your remark to mean that anyone who has a critical comment about a sappy, mediocre soft-rock band has an unwarranted high opinion of their own opinions, or, something like that.  Not really.  I was just stating my reaction to this oozing sap factory that goes by the name Snow Patrol.  In all truth, I am stating a fact.  It's what they do for me.  They are a radio-safe soft-rock band with mediocre talent.  True, I could surely not produce music like this.  I don't think it matters though, becuase they produce music for people to buy and consume.  I have very good reason to judge it.  My judgement:  it is sappy, mediocre, pleasant music, sometimes it's pretty good.  Nice soft-rock fare that I will never pay money for.  Not quite good enough.  I bought one CD and I sold it as soon as I could.   It's not exactly high art.  Hey, it's my opinion, what do I know.  You know what, I am not even going to charge you for my opinion.  You get these little golden nuggets gratis.

I was alive... but I don't remember it.  I do distinctly remember a few years later when we lost the Challenger.  I was watching live at school.  Sorry to be such a bummer, but it is such a strong memory still.  Much like 9/11 in that way.  Absolutely tragic.
