I wasn’t sure if I liked the new Snow Patrol album, “Eyes Open,” when it first came out. I loved “Final Straw” a lot, so in comparison, “Eyes Open” just didn’t have that edgy power that “Final Straw” did. If Final Straw were a group of snow campers lost in the wilderness commiserating around a bright bonfire, then “Eyes Open” would be those same campers after they were rescued and cleaned up and dressed in clean, ironed and starched shirts, giving an interview under hot stage lights about their experiences. I’ve finally decided that I do like the album. A lot. If another random band came out with this album, I wouldn’t even have this internal struggle in the first place. So, shut your eyes. And listen.
