Final Straw (2004)

Details Release Date: Mar 30, 2004; Lead Performance: Snow Patrol

Snow Patrol's third full-length proves the Irish quartet keeps getting better. Much of the credit for this catchy set of Britpop goes to the intelligent use of samples: The band has added pulsing strings and staticky textures to its luscious mix. And ''Run,'' with its haunting lyrics of romantic distress and walls of guitars, should put Coldplay on notice.
