COLDPLAY - Best Band in the world?

I am a huge fan of Coldplay and U2, and I have followed Coldplay since their first album, seen them live twice, and I literally cannot stop listening to their album A Rush of Blood to The Head. I see all the accolades they are receiving, they are humble, have great attitudes, and make beautiful music. Not to mention their lives shows are great as well. I haven't seen a band live like them since U2. Their album shot up back into the top ten and has been on the charts for over a year. In a music world of cheese, fluff, rap, and hip hop, they are a British Rock n' roll band storming the US Charts and Award shows.

So do you think, as I am starting to think, that they have become the Best Band in the World?? And they haven't gone off the deep end like Radiohead yet. I think the key with Coldplay is to come out with a new album in 2 years. An Album that is different, breaks some boundries, and I think as they already are starting to, if they can follow a similar path that U2 took then they should be around for a long time to come.

I just wanted to express how I am "more" into Coldplay than U2 at this point, and that's the first time that has really happened to me.

I dunno about the best band in the world. I do agree with you on the thing about bringing out a new album that has a different sound. They definitely need to experiment with their sound a bit on the next album. If they bring out one virtually the same as the last two then I think they'll be in deep doodoo. But I reckon they know what they've gotta do anyhow, so it's gonna be interesting to just wait and see I guess

i wouldn't give them the best band in the world title yet. they need to be around about 20 something years and produce countless hits before i give them that title. i do enjoy their music. i am curious to see what their next ep will sound like. if it is all about Chris being in love with Gwen well i will have a problem with it.

even though i don't consider what Radiohead did "going off the deep end," i wouldn't mind it if Coldplay would do that.

don't get me wrong, i like Coldplay, but i get bored of them real fast.

but it's hard to listen to Coldplay after listening to a Radiohead album. it's like switching from Mountain Dew to Sprite(bad analogy, sorry).

I think Coldplay make beautiful music. But best band in the world? No... not by a long shot. They are still young yet, are getting a bit full of themselves from what I see of recent interviews, Chris is becoming press-shy bc of Gwyneth (yawn) and has said very recently again that Coldplay are going to take a break after this tour concludes to "think it all up again"... how very U2 of them.

I'm interested to see where Coldplay lands next, but it's too soon to give them any grandiose title.

I've seen them live twice and they are amazing but only having produced two albums they have a long way to go yet to be best band in the world! Maybe in the future

They have a ways to go. But they are doing a great job along the way.

I really like coldplay, I have seen them 5 times. I have countless bootlegs. I think their first two albums are amazing and I believe their third will be as well.

With that said, calling them the best band in the world is a bit crazy. In my opinion their shows are nothing close to a U2 show, after seeing Radiohead, welll....

Great Band, but not best in the world yet.
