Best song they've ever done, far and away. Unfortunately I've only seen them play it love once. It was on the setlist for the second time I saw them but they played Everything's Not Lost in its place.

Anygay, I hear some rumblings of Wilco in here. I wuv Wilco......but most of you know that already.

I'm no Coldplay hater, just very very very disappointed with the lightweight shite that is X&Y being what came after the very excellent Parachutes and Rush of Blood. I sincerely hope they find that momentum again. Very talented group. I'd like to see them have their Joshua Tree mega-album time in the sun, and I think if their third album had trumped Parachutes & Rush of Blood they would have been anointed the undisputed heavyweight champs. Unfortunately, X&Y was more Atomic than Achtung, and sounded like a band trying to replicate themselves via a formula. That plan always produces something poor.

Very insightful. And I agree with everything you just said 100%. Hopefully Eno can draw something fresh from the band, and reignite that creative spark evident in their first two albums. I wouldn't mind Coldplay being the biggest band in the world...as long as their music warrants it. X&Y warranted no such claim.

Both are strong, but Parachutes also has more variety, is warmer, and more inviting.
see, I disagree. to me, Parachutes is too downtempo and depressing. Sure, you have songs like Shiver and Yellow, but overall I think Rush has a lot more variety. A Rush beautifully creates this atmosphere that sucks you in... I don't get that as much from Parachutes.

but Parachutes also has Don't Panic, the best Coldplay song ever

We'll have to see what direction Eno steers them in. Will it be more subtle, to contrast the attempted bombast of X&Y? or will it be more "rock" to try to push Coldplay into territory they haven't really explored? (let's face it, Coldplay makes Elevation sound like heavy metal)

I agree with this, that's why I prefer AROBTH.
