After two sporadically brilliant albums, 2001's When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up and 1998 debut Songs For Polarbears, Snow Patrol have polished their compelling power pop thanks to a new producer (dance/rock fusionist Jacknife Lee) and a new member (second guitarist Nathan Connolly). The result is the band's most coherent album to date. Opener "How To Be Dead" is an exquisite ballad on dysfunctional relationships and "Ways & Means" edgy Sebadoh-esque rock. The highlights, though, are "Run" and "Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking", which begin delicately and build into epic rock. A remarkable return.
