I think it sounds too much like U2 (not coldplay) - that's my issue wit it. It doesn't take me anywhere I haven't already been with them. Not the worst song, it's actually grown on me considerably, but I think it has more to do with the fact that Bono sings it extremely well and DM's production is solid. Still, nothing groundbreaking. Just yer average 2000 era U2 song for me.

I wasn't aware that saying that I think Invisible sounds too like Coldplay was an argument, let alone a lazy one. It's what's called a personal observation, which I think is obvious.

Do you have any evidence for your assertion that you don't think I'll find one person with discernible ears that will agree?

Welcome to this crazy place ... you will find that making Coldplay references in relation to U2 will bring about many rolled eyes and scoffing.

Is it because folks have heard it so many times over the past decade?

More or less.

Also, those here who actually like Coldplay (yes, there are hundreds dozens of us!) get annoyed at the Coldplay-bashing that also pops up from time to time.

Oh please don't think I'm having a pop at Coldplay; they're very good at what they do.

No, no - that part wasn't directed at you. Just a general comment about what happens when someone brings up Coldplay.

Coldplay, Hitler, failed misogyny jokes. All rather dangerous ground to be honest.

Less than 100 posts, and you've already figured this place out. Well done!

Yeah: logic

Look CP has certain attributes that make that obvious CP sound; piano, falsetto, obvious chorus. Invisible doesn't have any of these things.

Why don't you inform us of the obvious similarities since no one else sees it?

Logic? That's illogical.

Distinctive guitar sound that I've heard on numerous CP songs.

Do you have any evidence that no one else sees that or do you just make it up as you go along?

btw, it also sounds too much like the Killers to me, too.

No but seriously though Fuck Coldplay

I'm so sick of hearing about them. I think Id probably even like them somewhat if people didn't keep coming in the U2 section saying idiotic moronic things like U2 sounds like Coldplay, the guitar is the same, omg there's keyboards must be trying to be Coldplay etc etc ad naseum

Fact: No matter how much people want to compare the two bands, U2 was there first for two decades before Coldplay. There is no Coldplay without U2, period.

So take your Coldplay fan boy shit on over to a Coldplay forum...or at least over to the appropriate thread in the Bang & Clatter music section of this one.

That was very convincing council, I forgot about that distinctive guitar tone that CP are known for

Even the normal sounds like CP offenders aren't saying that with this song, that's a pretty big indicator to me.
