Snow Patrol's latest is by far their longest effort, and the one with the most depth, making it a rewarding outing for old and new fans-- if they're willing (or aware they should) put in the time to explore it. It's been a long time since "Run." The band has been unfortunately dormant since the success of their Jacknife Lee produced 2005 breakout album Eyes Open
, whose single "Chasing Cars" was pigeonholed as Lite FM rock and left the band on Grey's Anatomy Soundtrack levels of perception. And upon first mention, with no other information, there is no reason to believe otherwise of their latest, Fallen Empires
, which clocks in at 57 minutes and begins with the band's signature drone-y riff style.
