How about the Pitchfork review gang...

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record.../x-and-y.shtml

"In their seven years together, Coldplay have risen to monumental levels of popularity on a potent mixture of nice-guy charm, serviceable songwriting, and general inoffensiveness. Unfortunately, these aren't the kind of traits that often lead to interesting music. Not that the band hasn't taken the occasional stabs at creativity and innovation; it's just that those attempts have always been carefully measured, or even nervously self-conscious."

that Pitchfork review is spot on...

i guess i have to get used to hearing X&Y everywhere - Gap, Banana Republic, Elevators, Supermarkets, car commercials,etc...

but being constantly bombarded with it will only reinforce my belief that the songs are cheesy, trite, banal, cliche, and utterly boring. If this is what passes as a "masterpiece" these days, i am a bit worried.

and for the dude who said that there is U2, Coldplay, and everyone else, you obviously have very limited musical tastes. Is your third favorite band Keane by chance?

Reminders of why Coldplay shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as U2

...Unless you're saying that they are U2 wannabes:

Rolling Stone

"Coldplay didn't seem destined for bigness. Their 2000 debut, Parachutes, was full of drizzly but pretty rock ballads that were almost memorable enough to prevent American listeners from confusing the band with Travis...In 2002, Coldplay released A Rush of Blood to the Head, which perfectly captured the heady feeling of a small band acting big...Whereas Rush of Blood was a nervy bid for bigness, X&Y is something less exciting. It's the serious sound of Martin trying to sing songs that match his stature. It's the sound of a blown-up band trying not to deflate."

New York Magazine
"Your level of interest in their music probably correlates with your willingness to be bored. "

Pitchfork
"Like Coldplay's two previous albums, only more so, X&Y is bland but never offensive, listenable but not memorable. "

The New York Times
"When he moans his verses, Mr. Martin can sound so sorry for himself that there's hardly room to sympathize for him, and when he's not mixing metaphors, he fearlessly slings clichés."

My sentiment exactly. There's a reason why X&Y is the U2 album U2 could never have made...'cause U2 doesn't make albums that suck.

Why do all of you feel the need to compare. Different bands, different ideas, different goals.

Personally I think these critics are getting abit ahead of their selves and offering a baised review of an album that really is not what you are making it out to be.

I think some of these people need to check their baggage at the door and listen to it for what it is. A peice of music. Whether you like it or not, thats a different story, but I dont think the foum needs to here over and over again that it "sucks".

Personally I think merely the fact that they are inspiring reactions like this is something to be noted.

Coldplay has a new album out? I wonder why no one started a thread about it earlier?

They're a band. A pretty good one, too, actually, although it seems like it's impossible to say so without offending half of the U2 universe.
