What? TJT had three highly successful singles with a fourth that saw some success, as did MX. That's the only comparison I drew.

It doesn't have anything close to the pop-cultural reach, but that's the danger of comparing a new entity to anything that's been around long enough to draw "classic" status.

The song that really sticks with me from Mylo is Princess of China. Love that synth line.

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall is a well crafted and memorable song that still sees a lot of play on my CD Player and iPod. I was hooked on it from day one and for me is one of the bands best songs.

Fuck, I hadn't even heard of those first two, now I'm downloading their early EPs.

Parachutes remains my favourite album of theirs, and by a pretty wide margin. I always love listening to Don't Panic, it sounds so effortless and it's short and quiet... very different from Teardrop, much as I came to like that song.

Their early EPs are great, No More Keeping My Feet On The Ground which was the b-side to Yellow is also very much worth a look.

That is a solid B-Side. I enjoy their E.P.'s too but view them as a warm up exercise for the impressive "Parachutes" album. I remember buying it early on and seeing Coldplay at a small venue in Vancouver, Canada for that tour. I became a fan right there and have always felt Chris Martin & Co carry some of the U2 mantle but not the trophies on it !

Top Ten Coldplay Songs:

#1. Violet Hill
#2. Death And All His Friends
#3. Don't Panic
#4. Politik
#5. Talk
#6. Lost
#7. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
#8. Warning Sign
#9. Sparks
#10. The Scientist

Viva La Vida was a high point for me through Eno production but so was A Rush Of Blood To The Head too for sheer song writing skill shown by the then young band.

The comparison between U2 and Coldplay are obvious but Coldplay are U2/Radiohead lite.

There have been many, many albums with the same kind of chart success. And TJT actually had 4 songs crack the top 50 in the US, whereas MX only had 3 that charted.

Don't Panic is the best. Closely followed by A Rush of Blood to the Head.

My favorite on MX is Hurts Like Heaven. Always makes me feel good.

Interesting that "Don't Panic" is track 1 of their first LP, and for some of you it is their best song. I can't think of any other band where that would be the case.
