Snow Patrol’s third album Final Straw is their first on new label Polydor. The most telling sign that the band is now with a bigger label is the clear way they are being marketed. Their recent single Run, an angst-ridden guitar ballad, has received a massive amount of airplay. Its accompanying video, which is not unlike the one that helped Coldplay‘s Yellow reach dizzy heights, demonstrates which way Snow Patrol are being pushed. The music of Snow Patrol is not going to change the world but, as Final Straw demonstrates, it’s a sound that is more than capable of flying the flag for the institution that is the British Guitar Band. Although there are plenty of Coldplay momentson Final Straw, in general there are stronger echoes of bands like Teenage Fanclub (also Scottish) and Pavement. Second track Wow displaysa more alternative edge with its short sharp rhythm and monotone vocal.

With Final Straw, Snow Patrol mainman Gary Lightbody seems to take all the inspiration he's gathered from the superstar collaborators in his Reindeer Section project and bundle it into a series of earnest bombastic rock ballads.
