When I first started reading the review, it sounded like he hated the album. And then he ends it like that.

What a fucked up review that was. He liked it, I guess...

Definitely.

The Radiohead point was way off-base, too. They've never come off even half as forced as any Coldplay album. Why the comparison was made, I don't know.

Anyone else notice the rose petal that got stuck to Chris Martin's forehead during tonight's performance? I would up laughing every time they showed a close up of his face.

It was an ok performance....just average.

Hopefully Martin's voice will improve as the tour progresses. And remember, U2 has had some clunkers during awards shows in the past as well.

I kept waiting for him to wipe that confetti off his forehead! The performance was just okay (the endless confetti was quite the overkill; note to the band - if it obscures band members, it's too much), but I really, really like the song.

The review posted earlier is strange. First they bitch about Coldplay turning into U2 and then turn around and praise the album in the end. Obviously, U2 must be really THE band, because their mentioned up and down in reviews.

What I got from it is: they are what they are, derivative of other bands (esp. U2), more mainstream than they'd like to believe, but within that context, it's a good album.

I scored tickets for two of their European shows in September. Usually, I'm not fond of their live appearances at TV or award shows and such, but still I'm excited about the concerts.

We'll have this thing within a week.
