Mad for sadness? Then Northern Irish four-piece Snow Patrol could be the band for you. Ignore lead singer Gary Lightbody when he hisses that he's "never gonna fall in love again" on the opening track of the same name; When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up is an album about giving your heart away, feeling it break, and desperately trying to reassemble it before the next emotional crackup. Some of this record's greatest moments find amps turned down and emotions laid desperately bare, such as the acoustic "Make Love to Me Forever" and the love-laid-to-rest lament of "If I'd Ever Found the Right Words to Say." But that's not to say that the ballsy pop songs--see "Ask Me How I Am," the sound of a harmony-laden Sebadoh playing hip-hop through a detuned radio--don't make the grade. And when it's all over? They may have been casualties in the wars of love, but as Lightbody whispers "we won't get much sleep" on the closing "Firelight," you know that--like you--Snow Patrol are ready to flip the record and live it all again. --Louis Pattison

I have all of their albums including "Songs For Polar Bears" and "Final Straw," and while each is filled with great, memorable songs, Snow Patrol's sophomore release, "When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up" sounds more connected and uses has a bigger variety of musical styles than the other two.

You begin the CD with a series of palm mutes, followed by a spacey riff and the soft, almost whispered voice of frontman Gary Lightbody. "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" and "Ask Me How I Am" are only around 2:15 each; The album doesn't seem to begin until "Making Enemies," beginning with a distorted, reversed introduction.

I like this album more because it mixes a lot of rock songs and ballads. For a harder, rough, almost grunge sound, look towards "Black And Blue," "Last Ever Lone Gunman," and "Chased By... I Don't Know What." While no song sticks out like "Run" on Final Straw, "If I'd Ever Found The Right Words To Say," and "An Olive Grove Facing The Sea" (a hauntingly beautiful song with a brass ensemble playing towards the end) certainly make up for it.

For me "One Night Is Not Enough" is the stand out track for me. This is the track with the best guitars and the best lyrics. Lightbody sings about the hardship of lying to a lover (which he seems to be best at doing): "Have I held out for something, That is never going to happen?, It's not me that you love."

It won't happen on the first listen, but these songs will catch on to you quickly. When "Final Straw" begins to sound boring (and it will eventually), pick up "When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up." It may be expensive but it was a great choice for me.

This is great. I have to say that right away, I thought "songs for polar bears" was a masterpiece, snow patrol's second full length is equally good, if not better. Still keeping with that sebadoh, crunchy indie sound, this album moves along very nice allowing for all the songs to shine very bright, My favorite song is, "if I'd found the right words to say" such a beautiful song, gorgeous melodies and thoughtful lyrics. Snow patrol know when to rock and know when to keep it simple and pretty. Think of it as Belle and Sabastian meets Sebadoh, somewhere in the misty green hills of Ireland.

I bought Music for Polar Bears some time ago, and recently bought Final Straw, and this album is just as good as them all. It does have a different sound/feel to it, but thats what makes it all the better. It has short, sharp lyrics, with a variety of sounds that come together perfectly.Some songs come together quickly, and some you have to wait for the "good part", but its all good. Worth the money and the wait, and if you ever know of the boys coming near your area, make sure you do whatever it takes to see them live, by far the best group of this genre i ve seen.

As a major fan of Snow Patrol, (even before this year, yes) I was very interested in this album because it is the one no one talks about. After purchasing it, I kind of figured out why. It isn't bad... that's certainly not the word for it. Its dreamy soundscape and ethereal vocals are anything but bad. It's just... nothing truly special. To me, a lot of these songs sound the same and if I play the cd in my car (on auto repeat) I never realize when it finishes and starts again. There are a few small gems, "Olive Grove Facing the Sea" and the title track, but when compared to other Snow Patrol greats, they're something I keep in reserve for a rainy day. For anyone well-versed in Snow Patrol, if you're going to compare albums (and you really shouldn't) it would be most like Songs for Polar Bears. Anyway, I wouldn't put it on the top of your wishlist, but if you're looking for some new music and haven't figured out what to get yet... this wouldn't be a bad choice.

I'm relatively new to the whole alternative music scene, being an R'n'B chick and only got into snow patrol due to hearing their songs on the radio. Bought final straw and I was blown away by the quality. Then decided to buy the 2nd album the one I'm recommending, and I love it too. Go out and support this band, it took a while 4 them 2 blow up in the UK but they are finally getting the acknowledgement they deserve. Furthermore they are spectacular live. What more can I say, I can't wait for the next album!!!!!

This is a 2006 re-release of Snow Patrol's 2nd album, 2001's "When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up." This was back when the band were a trio instead of a quintet: singer/guitarist Gary Lightbody, bassist Mark McClelland, and drummer Jonny Quinn (with Lightbody & McClelland playing various keyboards). This is definitely a more raw-sounding Snow Patrol, both musically and lyrically, as the band would become fully powered-up on their next two releases, "Final Straw" and "Eyes Open." But "When It's All Over..." is still a great album in it's own right, with lots of powerful songs. Memorable tracks include the rockers "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again," "Ask Me How I Am" and "Making Enemies," the beautiful "An Olive Grove Facing The Sea," and the simple but hypnotic "Firelight." And for extra value, this re-issue comes with four excellent bonus tracks (my favorite being "In Command Of Cars,") and a rare music video of "Ask Me How I Am" that you can play on your computer. Although there was still room for Snow Patrol to grow as a musical unit at this point in time, "When It's All Over We Still Have To Clear Up" is an amazing collection of songs by this very talented group.
