I’ll never forget a friend bringing over Final Straw in 2003 and becoming immediately attached to it from beginning note to end. To this day it is still one of my favorites by Snow Patrol. Since then, they have released multiple albums and recently their sixth, Fallen Empires, pulled me back in with the rocky riffs found on their earlier work.
