2009 reissue of the enhanced and expanded edition of the Scottish band's sophomore album including four bonus tracks plus the enhanced video for 'Ask Me How I Am'. When It's All Over... was originally released in 2001 and was the follow-up to their 1998 debut full length, Songs for Polarbears. Led by guitarist/vocalist and songwriter Gary Light body, Snow Patrol had all the right pieces in place by the time they released their debut album but it took a few years for the rest of the world to catch on. The band continues to go from strength to strength with every release. Includes the singles 'Ask Me How I Am' and 'One Night Is Not Enough'. Jeepster.

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.
