While writing up this round of reviews, I had the genius idea to look to see if the new Snow Patrol album is on Grooveshark and it is. They are a group from Ireland probably best known for "Chasing Cars" here in the U.S. I discovered them via Pandora about 3 or 4 years ago and amazingly enough, I had never heard any of their music until then, even the ubiquitous "Chasing Cars." I got hooked on "Run" and "Chocolate" with the result being that starting with the album Final Straw -- my favorite of all -- I ended up buying all of the albums and becoming a firm fan. That's how I roll. I find a band and if I love them, I buy the albums and support the live shows.
So anyway, listening to the Snow Patrol album straight through for the first time (Not out in the U.S. yet.) and enjoying what I'm hearing so far. Gary Lightbody is hilarious, witty, has a way with words, and is a bit adorable. Well, actually all the band members are. That's a huge reason why I like them so much. Here we are hanging out. ha, ha. (That's right, I get around.) Nathan Connolly is on the other side but I had to crop him out to preserve my anonymity. Could I look any happier or dorkier? I told them I am a blinker in photos and Gary said, "Oh, should we blink as well?" I said, "No!" emphatically and that's why we are all cracking up. Bonus: I didn't blink.
