Snow Patrol : Called Out In The Dark
Launching the first single from their sixth album, Snow Patrol throw off the earnest indie rock guitars of yore and get bed down with the very hip, very now sound of synth rock. What a waste, seriously. They were one of my guiltiest pleasures, with all that crybaby, heart-clutching sincerity, those big trembling choruses, and now they just sound like Friendly Fires, for whom I have less than friendly feelings. Bah.
