I'm absolutely overjoyed right now. Snow Patrol were awesome! I was incredibly worried that I'd be a little down because Snow Patrol's a band you're meant to see with someone special, with someone you love... But I didn't feel any of that at all! They were brilliant. And I'm so glad I didn't waste this on someone I wasn't meant to be with.

All this feels strange and untrue
And I won't waste a minute with you...

SP- rather you than me, every time I hear Take Back the City I cringe and go ballistic.

I prefer their older stuff (Open Your Eyes and You Could Be Happy are among my favourite songs), but their new album isn't that bad. I agree that Take Back the City isn't great, and I much prefer Engines and Crack the Shutters off A Hundred Million Suns.

They really are very good live though. Gary Lightbody comes across as being incredibly sincere and genuine. It's rather refreshing to see a band who's made it so big and, well, isn't getting all preachy about it.
