Up To Now
by Snow Patrol
Released: Nov 2009
Label: Polydor / Fiction / Geffen
Snow Patrol compile mega-hits, B-sides and rarities, plus three new tracks: electro-heavy "Just Say Yes" and ballads "Give Me Strength" and "Dark Roman Wine." They load the top of the first disc with their biggest singles, tracks that have guided along many a dramatic TV scene and still pack a punch of poignancy. But what makes this better than your average greatest hits package is its intriguing range; they add in favorites from their first two albums, tracks with the Reindeer Section (a side project with other Scottish musicians) and a Beyonce/Jay-Z cover (even pasty U.K. boys can rap!).
