New Release (Fiction/Interscope)
If ever a band was born to be U2’s opening act, it’s Snow Patrol, the Northern Irish/Scottish band that did indeed open many dates on U2’s 360º tour. Six albums into their career, they’re still aping U2’s grandiosity (and Coldplay’s more genteel version of same) without throwing much of anything distinctive into the mix.
