Product Description

It's a disservice to Snow Patrol to compare them to their more successful labelmates, but to say that Songs For Polar Bears sounds like Belle and Sebastian gone grunge should go some way to defining the skewed brilliance of this Northern Irish trio. Snow Patrol do some wonderful things to the conventions of fuzzy new-wave guitar-pop; pare it down into a melancholic hymn on "The Last Shot Ringing In My Ears", hyper-tense it into the caffeine buzz of "Starfighter Pilot", or let it dissipate altogether on the ethereal "Velocity Girl2. Songs For Polar Bears works because it's the polar opposite to club-footed cock rock; an album that sounds warmly empathetic, while others are all too eager to shoot their dull load of guitar machismo. That it's a little overlong is a shame--an earlier EP, "One Hundred Things You Should Have Done In Bed" was concise perfection--but Songs For Polar Bears feels like a tender bandage, while the rest of the world's rockers dully figure that if it hurts, it works. --Louis Pattison

3.0 out of 5 stars debut album for alternative group June 1 2010
Format:Audio CD
Snow Patrol's "songs for polar bears" was first released in 1998. It was the first release for this group which hails originally from Northern Ireland. The album sounds very much like a first effort. Most songs such as "nyc" have a rough sonic texture and lead singer Gary Lightbody sounds somewhat hesitant and unsure of himself. On the whole the release is moderately melodic and should appeal to most fans of this groups more recent and more polished releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snow Patrol - shows promise May 13 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have had this album for a bit over a year now and I still listen to it a lot. Snow Patrol are a indie/grunge/pop band. This first album is very good and although a bit on the basic side funny lyrics and catchy tunes should keep you listening to this for a while. If you like Idlewild you should check out Snow Patrol.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow Patrol: Songs For Polarbears (Extra Tracks) Jan. 1 2000
By Kyle Finley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is amazing. One of the best I've heard in a long time. These guys definatly need some recognition. Favorite Tracks are "StarFighter Pilot", "Velocity Girl" and "100 Things You Should Do Before You Go To Bed". All are great tracks, but these stand-out.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was just a matter of time Oct. 20 2006
By Scott Toothman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Soon this album will be reviewed by all their new fans because, well, it's never too late. The reason why it took Snow Patrol to get popular was because they started off on a small label (Jeepster) and didn't have the exposure they do now. They signed with a huge label and have finally taken off the way it should have been from the start.

They use keyboards, guitars, bass and drums like a garage band with a million great ideas in their head. The only reason it sounds like garage is because that's probably the only money they could afford. Still, the songs are catchy with a great backbeat. You can hear the fun, dreamlike desire they have. Starfighter Pilot comes at you quick with an easy melody and is fun to sing along with.
One Hundred Things You Should Have Done in Bed shows a bit of bitterness and serious tone wrapped up in another poppy gem.
The list goes on and the number of songs is definitely an added bonus.

I remember when I reviewed this album while in college (cheers to you two who reviewed it here) - nobody got it then but it could have been because it was too poppy. This album, while much choppier, is a lot like their new stuff (i.e. Chasing Cars) with a formulated radio-ready feel. The difference is that with the old stuff, you'll find your head bobbing from start to finish. The new has matured and is better suited to get your prom date out on the floor and slow dance to. Still great, and never too late to be introduced to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discover early SNOW PATROL.... Sept. 9 2006
By Hermione Rae - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First I bought FINAL STRAW a year and half ago and I was constantly playing it in the car and in my dorm room (great chilling/driving music). Then I bought EYES OPEN for my birthday, and was thrilled with yet another amazing album from what I consider one of my favorite bands ever (right up there with GOO GOO DOLLS and COLDPLAY). So naturally, when I listened to these two back-to-back, I went on a sort of SNOW PATROL binge and JUST HAD to buy anything else they had put out. I found out about POLAR BEARS and another early release and bought them for a great combo price.

While POLAR BEARS doesn't quite carry the same impact as their latest releases, it's a nice album to get if you enjoy going back to a band's roots and discovering their progression. It's really great just to play like four albums in a row, which I did on the way up to college recently.

I would definitely recommend this album along with WHEN IT'S ALL OVER WE STILL HAVE TO CLEAR UP, two of their early releases, which are great to play back to back and right before you go into another jam session with FINAL STRAW and EYES OPEN. Seriously, one of the greatest bands of this next generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool and Quirky Aug. 30 2009
By Louis J. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a pretty avid snow patrol fan for a while, and i am especially fond of their older, weirder stuff, like this album. it's a shame nobody has heard these songs because they really stray from what you'd expect listening to the band's radio-ready sound nowadays. These songs are really rhythmic and gentle, and are made in some very unusual arrangements. If you're a fan of quirky, catchy music or are just looking for something different you should definitely give this album a try. Plus, there are lots of bonus tracks.
