But there's a massive difference between Achtung Baby and X&Y that makes that comparison null and void. Achtung Baby is brilliant.

In my opinion.

I haven't heard the whole album, but I really like "Speed of Sound". Tomorrow is the sale for the tour and I'm planning to try to score one. Perhaps this is rather stupid before I've heard the album, but the damn thing hasn't been released. Decisions, decisions..............

speed of sound , sounds like the same old rehashed crap from this band, they have no originality or ability to challenge themselves artistically.... just like Dmb. he is even more over and overated

If you like Speed of Sound, you will LOVE X&Y. Speed of Sound is far from being the best track of the album.
I'll aslo try to get tickets today for the Montréal show.

That's what I'm thinking. I anticipating liking X&Y. I loved AROBTTH, and if it's like that, I'll like this album. It might not be the greatest album in the history of rock 'n roll, but hey, an album doesn't have to be AB for me to like it.

AROBTTH is awesome, definitely better than X&Y, imo

AROBTTH will be hard to top, but I remember when I first got it I HATED it and was bored out of my mind. I rediscovered it months later when Clocks started getting play (though now i hate the song for that very reason), and it became a staple of my early 2003 life. So, perhaps I will have some deja vu with this one too.

i agree with the review, to me it's also nothing new, nothing special, just regular coldplay--which isn't all bad, but i think Martin's boasting to compare his band with and exceed u2,is a bit too much!!

Yeah, it's definitely excessive. I'm glad I landed a ticket for the show in Birmingham. I still haven't gotten X&Y, but I think I'll like it. AROBTTH knocked me out, especially "Clocks".

This album IS brilliant. It took a while for it to grow on me, but I am now addicted. Coldplay is the only band today that even approaches U2's class.

One reason Coldplay may never reach U2's status is because there is only one Bono (nothing against Chris Martin).

I am enjoying the album. It is not a master-piece, nor will it reinvent the music world, but I am having a good time with it.

As for U2-Coldplay comparisions, just let each do their own thing.

I'm just sad that it's not as good as I expected it to be. And I even payed it more then I should...

It will grow on me soon, but not enough... (not to a great album).

sorry...
