I left this thread open because I know this is a hot discussion and right now it is the place to discuss Coldplay, but some of these posts are a little bit out of hand. Can we please refrain from name calling and personal attacks.

Lazarus please see your pm's/email.

um, i backtracked and really looked at this thread, and if i had to make sense of things (and not to get too personal), it reads like a certain someone (or two or three) had been molested by chris martin or something.

...is there anything anyone needs to say? look, this is a safe place; no one is going to judge you.

The Man Who is a remarkable album. Spawned a huge single called Why Does It Always Rain On Me, as well as three other amazing hits....check it out.....Kind of folk-rock-ish

Or rather, like Coldplay but without a piano.

That's a great song BTW (Why Does It Always Rain On Me).

wow, you guys really went on a bender...

I hope you had the decency to pay for breakfast in the morning.

Btw Zoots, what exactly is so special about Keane again? I have Hopes And Fears and I can't say it does much for me... I think Fran from Travis has a nicer voice.

Haven't really listened to Travis so I'll have to give them a try but... what's so special about Keane??? They create such lush pop rock melodies, something that is very unique in the musical climate of this decade. It stands out to me as something old fashioned... everyone has that indie/post rock/experimental sound but these guys just belt it out and sing loud and proud... I don't know if I'm describing this well but they just click for me... songs like Bedshaped, Everybody's Changing, Untitled 1, Hamburg Song, Nothing In My Way etc. have the most gorgeous melodies I have ever heard.. not just this decade but ever! Hopes And Fears is easily in my Top 5 if not Top 3 for this decade. I don't give a shit if people think they're plain vanilla or that Tom's face looks like melted butter or whatever... I can't argue with my ears!

I'll listen to it again then... I can't seem to conect with them though. Maybe I'm Keane's Laz

If you're all about the indie, I guess you won't like them. They're unashamedly mainstream pop-rock and yet I find them refreshing.

I like U2 don't I? It amazes me how many people on here go on about all these indie bands and still like U2. At this point they're like the anti-indie.

Tell me about it!!! I've wondered this a lot lately! Case in point: BigMacphisto's list of top albums for the decade. lol.
