Great. Now I have to leave Interference forever. I can't face this kind of rejection!

Come on, McFly. You're better than this.

It really is a good album, I think you'd like it, at least some parts of it.

Leaving Interference forever? But then you'll just be copying Mr. Brau and Canadiens. What are you, Coldplay?

Do something original with your life.

Brau would have had a field day with this thread.

Perhaps we shouldn't mention him, though. I'd like to see what Rob has to say for himself before this thread gets closed.

As do I. I mean your post literally shows he said the exact opposite of the case.

Yeah. It's going to be interesting to see if he'll try to talk himself out of it, or if he'll actually admit he was wrong. I predict a couple "you're misunderstanding me"s and something along the lines of "I guarantee you I know exactly what Chris Martin is thinking."

I got a ticket for Hartford a couple of weeks back (there were still loads, including excellent singles) for what I thought would be a show this coming Thursday, but the day after I bought it they reshuffled the schedule so now it's August 2nd. Still works though since it's a Saturday - I'm hopping a 12:30AM bus back after the show, won't be back home until about 3:30AM-ish. First time seeing a show in Hartford (surprisingly, since I have been to just about every other Northeast city for U2 ), anybody know how the XL Center is?

ok, it's been awhile since I've seen that original post...I don't know how to search for stuff like that...

having said that, I completely understand how my original statements were vague and an inaccurate reflection of what I was trying to convey and what I was actually thinking. I was sort of shocked to see my original post because I would never word it the way I did if I posted that now...I don't know why I wrote what I wrote.... maybe I was tired or something...I don't know, sorry GG...it was my mistake


anyway, Chris Martin's still a piece of shit, and Coldplay still drives me insane on a daily basis. The only cure for this will be a new U2 album that dominates the shit out of Viva la Vida...we can only hope

Now you wouldn't post it because you've been thoroughly informed that you're wrong.

Did he kill your puppy or something? Why so much anger for a simple rock singer?

I still love this, especially because your original statements weren't vague at all: you blatantly said it was a rip-off and that "the chord progressions are what they are."

If I didn't know better, I'd say you're trying to cover your ass.

no no you have it all wrong...I stand by everything I have said up until the post before last...the only thing that was proved was that "Life..." and Streets do not have similar chord progressions...and that's not even what I was trying to say in my original post, but yes, it sure looks like that's what I was saying. In my original post, I was simply commenting on the fact that certain chord progressions like the one heard in "Lovers In Japan/Reign of Love" and certain song structures, etc. aren't really debatable. Those are definitive aspects of music that "are what they are." I didn't mean to connect that statement to the question of whether or not Streets and "Life..." had the same chord progression or not, but the way I constructed that original post made it seem like that was in fact what I was doing. I am knowledgeable enough musically to know that Streets and Life In Technicolor do not have the same chord progression...even someone without much musical training could see that. Pfan, nothing was proved wrong except the idea that Streets doesn't have the same chord progression as "Life...," and that wasn't even what I was trying to prove...I just misspoke...if you think I'm trying to cover my ass I really don't know what to tell you, except to just not get too worked up over it, and don't let it keep you up at night...and...besides...what do you mean, "trying to cover your ass" - why would I even try to do that? You aren't making sense

Coldplay is still nothing more than a U2 ripoff band...a dumbed down, pathetic, sugary version of a rock and roll band...you can deny it all you want, but it's really not a far-fetched idea. So Pfan, "He copies U2 ... wait, that was disproved ..." - NO, you're wrong, that wasn't disproved...GG proved that "Streets" doesn't have the same chord progression as "Life..." - that's it...you get that? Or do you need this spoon fed to you?
