And after taking a breather from this album, I listened to it in its entirety yesterday for the first time in a while.

Guess what? It's still damn good.

And except for the Eno atmospherics (which are really more Eno than U2 obviously), I don't really hear as much U2 influence as others are hearing. This album is brilliant and stands well on it's own!

Yes, but that's the problem when you only show up every 6 months, 2 years, or 3 years.

You must have missed the memo then, comparing U2 to Colplay is so July 2008, we're bitching about the delay for the new album now...

Me neither. I hear a lot of other influences though. There's nothing wrong with that in particular, but I wouldn't call the album innovative either. It is what it is...another Coldplay album; I could live without it, but it sounds good while it's playing.

hmm... a front-man who makes weird movements and hand gestures live and in videos... where have I heard that before?

I just don't like how bright his eyes and teeth have been made - creepy...

Oh yeah, that too! He did look a bit creepy.

And the worst thing is, he seems to be copying present day Bono, not even the way cooler Bono of the 80s and 90s! :cry:

That video is CREEPY! I change the channel whenever it's on, and it's on a lot these days.

Come on, Bono is DECENT compared to Chris Martin's stage and video antiques.

Still love their album, though.

I'm going to two Coldplay concerts this week!

I REALLY hate how Buckland taps his foot exactly like Edge. It's just so-oooo blatant, you know?

You're just as derivative as everyone else. So-ooooo unoriginal.
