Even when he was still around though, it was tired and boring because most people couldn't be arsed, and those who could just ran in repetitive circles with him.

There's no stimulating, interesting, intelligent debate. The place is a waste of time. I don't even see a reason to try to get involved to improve things, given who's still hanging around there ...

See, threads like this are why FYM has gone down the tubes. It's not so much the topic that's the trouble, but the heavy-handed comments. In any other section, we could at least make a few cracks about things like this, but there you would be attacked for it.

ElMel, I listened to Parachutes last night and again this morning. It's OK, but Martin's falsetto is God awful and ruins a lot of it for me.

I'm saying.


Actually, I really like Parachutes a lot, but those particular issues have destroyed Coldplay in many ways. They lost the plot completely after the second album.

I just think it's music really designed to have a strong vocalist, and he can't do that. I feel like if they had a good singer, the album would be very good.

I'm still going to give the second album a shot, though, the music was good enough to earn that.

I really like his vocals on Shiver. That's about it. The rest of the time he's just "there". I can't really name a song I dislike on Parachutes though.

Certain people like their high horses.

And how about the latest abortion thread? Got to love how the well is poisoned by its very subject line. You can tell straight away that it's not going to host an intelligent, informed debate.

Why does Wikipedia have the title track listed at 0:46? The one I downloaded has an over 5 minute song called Parachutes.

Hmm...it's definitely 0:46 on my copy.

The guy who assembled the collection put a song called "Parachute" by Guster on there instead of the actual track.

Funny, I liked that song because it had better vocals. I thought the vocalist was the guitarist or somebody.

Melon is one of the few that actually know their stuff in that section. Irvine is pretty sharp too, but he's so condescending that it's difficult to have a debate with the guy purely for fun.

Yolland, Melon, and Irvine are the only sane ones there. I'm shocked at their patience with the place.

I'm waiting a couple more months and then using the NSW strategy of dropping by once a month or so with a great post and leaving again.

Yes sir, thank ya. I'll get on that tomorrow, since I'll be out of here for the rest of the day in a few hours.


A running diary with fresh Baileys is guaranteed.
