Agreed. With the U2 remasters, June may be one hell of a month musically.
Well, they're coming out in July, actually. No?

EDIT: No you are right. My mistake. It will be a nice summer at least.

Go away Lazarus. You clearly aren't a fan of the group so just leave. You hated it when people said they hated Radiohead. If you didn't like that why are you doing the same thing here. Just leave already.

The person who was trolling with that Radiohead thread was accusing the band of making music solely for critics and snobs, when those comments could easily have been dropped in the active thread about the band.

I didn't start this thread, I'm simply reacting to the chessiness of the song titles, and I'm not judging Coldplay just on that alone; I also think they are milquetoasts making boring wannabe art rock that is neither art nor rock.

Unlike respected artists normally accused of being pretentious, Coldplay fits the true meaning of the term, where the work "characterized by assumption of dignity or importance" its backed up by little substance.

Also, Chris Martin's laughable performance at the Grammys a couple years ago where he pathetically tried to emulate Bono's stage persona is just another reason to dislike him/them.

I just think it's funny when such a big deal is made about a safe, unchallenging band like this as if they're some kind of important or essential act. Working with Brian Eno does not automatically give you credibility.

But I'm more than happy to ignore the rest of this thread, as it will become increasingly disturbing over the next few weeks to watch people drool all over themselves with anticipation, especially those who normally seem to have such good taste.

Right now you are trolling. Leave so I can still have some respect left for you. You are coming off as a real jerk. You don't like the band. We understand that. Now just leave unless you have something constructive. I don't want to have to report you for trolling.

Safe and unchallenging? Absolutely.

Some good tunes though.

And I like the title Strawberry Swing because, well, I like strawberries. A LOT.

While I wholeheartedly disagree with lazarus on this matter, he is certainly entitled to express them in this thread. This is not a Coldplay appreciation thread. If it were, then accusations of trolling would be valid because it's a thread for Coldplay enthusiasts.

That being said, any opinions on Coldplay's upcoming album, in my opinion, are valid.

But he isn't here to give any kind of thought out opinion on the album. He is here to express his hatred for the band. That's trolling in my eyes. If he listens to the album and doesn't like it that's fine. To for no reason express hatred for the band serves no purpose in this thread. His intentions have nothing to do with the album.

Well, that's something that we all have to live with. I've stated this many, many times, but I firmly believe that music is subjective, so it shouldn't be a reflection on me personally if I like XYZ band.

But there will always be people who denigrate your taste in music, so you're just going to have to grow a thicker skin.

Please don't start hating me too much then, lazzy. We have a good thing going here. You're my little feral parrot.




Considering how much my taste in music has evolved since my Coldplay loving heyday, I'm a little surprised to find myself tremendously excited about this. Hopefully they've put together something great. This just jumped way up my anticipated albums list.

But I don't think it's quite to my anticipation level for Evil Urges.

What's even funnier is that comments like these, or that Radiohead-bashing thread, only serve to contribute to the fuss over the afore-mentioned bands,

As for Coldplay's newie, I do hope they pull it off. I'm not entirely convinced that they have more in them than being a good lil' band, but we'll just have to wait and see.

What? No one's even heard any of the new tracks yet! It could be the most revolutionary thing since Dark Side Of The Moon.

Laz can say what he wants, this is democratic thread. But at the end of the day, no one's in a position to judge anything about this album, 'cause no one's heard the bloody thing yet.

A Rush Of Blood To The Head was one of the most beautiful albums of all time, an incredible sound that deserved all of it's commercial success. X&Y indeed lacked cohesion, flow and a vision, and had a few stinkers, yet there is no reason why VLVODAAHF will not be as timeless and classic as AROBTTH.
