Yeah they did, but it's a recyclable image though. I even do it myself, recycle a lyric and adapt it to suit my own circumstance.

I'm sure it's countless other songs besides U2, though.

Yeah, it was one of the first things I noticed about the song.

I don't have a problem with it. As Phanan said, it's an image that's been used before and Bono didn't invent it, obviously.

But I knew people would jump all over it because of the U2/Coldplay comparisons that have shown up in the past.

U2 did not invent it BUT...

When the banks became cathedrals

is not very far from

The banks they're like cathedrals

Did Chris Martin think that nobody would remember Playboy Mansion?

Surely the key thing here is that, after the Banks were merely LIKE cathedrals in Playboy Mansion; in "Violet Hill", the banks have actually evolved into cathedrals.....a sign o' the times perhaps?

Maybe it's like Coldplay's salute to U2.

LMP, he wants to know if you love him.

Just heard the new coldplay song and after listening a few times I got to say its pretty ordinary. With the nice intro build up I was expecting something a bit different and a bit good and they serve up that pile of dross. Yeah I liked x and y and a rush of blood had its moments but if this is one of the standout tracks from their new album I don't think I'll bother buying. At least Speed of Sound was a good song. I think Coldplays grasp far out reaches their talent and they have peaked in a musical sense on their last album. Yeah Violet Hill 5/10 and nothing more. With this and Radioheads dismal offerings of late, good music nowadays really is hard to find. Roll on U2's new album. Oh yeah didn't mention REM's pretty bland last effort as well. Another band that has far out lasted its welcome!

Holy hell rjhbonovox came out of hiding!!! I agree with you on Violet Hill I think but you're so far off on In Rainbows and Accelerate, it's not even funny!
