A Hundred Million Suns

Got a hold of a copy of Snow Patrol album - A Hundred Million Suns today. I've already got some of their earlier work such as Eyes Open and Final Straw and quite liked both of those so I'm hopeful that this one will prove to be worth the same investment in time listening to it.

At first play through it seems a bit raunchier than earlier albums at the beginning but it's still Snow Patrol and there are some more familiar sounding tracks through the course of the album to appease those that don't like change. The final track, The Lightning Strike, lasts for over 16 minutes and is definitely a bit of a change. It might take a few listens to grow on me but I think it will and it may prove even more popular than their previous offerings.

If you like songs with lyrics you can actually hear and some very nicely arranged acoustic guitar music backed by some amazing orchestrated themes, then you may very well find A Hundred Million Suns is your cup of tea.

Genre: Alternative
My Rating: 7/10
