judging by the single from their new album they will have a hard time to progress their sound
so I don't know whether they'll be around for a long time

but hey, things can change

Somewhere, way way back, deep in Interference archive land is a thread i wrote about my first encounter with Coldplay. But I'll tell u the story again Angel.
Saturday morning early, some time ago.I had set the VCR in readiness to collect , sorry I can't recal exactly which one, one of the new U2 songs from ATCLYB.RAGGGEEE!! so excited It was going to be my first viewing of it.
You guys had me informed too early for Oz.The u2 song, I think maybe "BD" didn't appear that weekend here. But I did write a thread about another song I heard that morning, with a beautiful film clip. I was very moved. it was so simple, a walk on the beach at dawn, the lovely young man reminded me of my nephew who lives in London and doesn't want to come home, and the singer had the most beautiful voice. I loved the song. I came on line and asked if any of you guys knew who it was, as I 'd missed the name of the band and song title. I said, I guess it's called yellow, because he kept singing that....

so yes I agree
and his duet with bono on "What's Going On" so sweet.
heck I'm going to listen to that now

I don't own coldplay's album, but I wish them well on their musical journey.
September 4th, not long now. Have a wonderful time.

just giving my opinion, as someone who has listened to the new album a few times, it sounds like more of the same, so you guys should be pleased I guess, I'm just bored with them at this point, I listen to them occasionally, but I'd much rather listen to some of their peers like the Doves, Elbow and Electric Soft Parade, who I feel are far superior bands

I think that all these bands are a little derivative, but Coldplay's 'sound' isn't really distinctive beyond what Chris Martin's vocals bring to each song. The arrangements all lend themselves to being played live (electric/acoustic guitar, bass drums, not much more), which is good, but also means that the originality is not quite there. Still I'm looking forward to hearing the new album, plus the cover art is cool as!

every band has their strong influences

Coldplay has a distinct sound from Radiohead even though they are derived from that genre.

Are we gonna not listen to radiohead just because they have obvious pink floyd influences?

yeah, and it's a very big influence...

as for Pink Floyd and Radiohead, I've been hearing that mentioned over the years, but I just don't see it, if you mean in attitude and the atmosphere of their music, I'd agree, but their music sounds nothing alike

I know why people make that connection:

listen to "comfortably numb" and then "exit music" back to back.

sing exit music over the verse to comf. numb. nearly the same.
anyway b minor is an unusual key.
I don't know why the hell else people say it. just my guess.
but:
they both have that trippy, depressing, minor key, "let's smoke up" kind of thing.
whatever dude.
