I could in songs like Yellow and Shiver. Not so much in the last couple. The songs are too grand and sweeping for such things...except for Yes, perhaps. The rest of the time they're too busy gathering together the armies of Heaven to battle the demons of the past (X&Y) or whatever.

I was underwhelmed with R2R, and while Diamond HH is a bit derivative, at least they're rocking again. Of course, neither of them are as good as LOOP.

LOOP features just about everything I love about the band. I can understand the frustration with R2R, but damn, there are some spectacular melodies on that one. Tales Of Endurance? Get outta here. My favorite will always be I Should Coco, because my tastes aren't sophisticated enough to be immune to such a record's charms.

oh, alright then, you just mentioned two songs from Parachutes so I thought you were just refering to it...

As corny as some of the lyrics are, I hear a lot of soul on X&Y ucks:

And Viva La Vida will take a while to process.

AROBTTH sounds like Eye-Rack, like something is being pronounced horribly wrong!

All I hear on X&Y is the faint ka-ching of cash registers in the distance.

Viva sounds amazing, but I can't help but feel that the songs aren't about anything in particular. I enjoy listening to it, but it doesn't move me.

I just now caught the rerun of Coldplay's appearance on the Daily Show from last night.

I couldn't help but think that Jon Stewart was making some not-so-subtle jabs at the band's choice of clothing during their little interview.

Jon Stewart vs. Chris Martin...

Stewart FTW.

You seriously don't think they were trying to do something artistic? You may be confusing it with ATYCLB.
