Coldplay --> In my humble opinion...

... will be around for a very long time.

I know that a lot of you out there fail to see what all the 'hype' is with this relatively new band from England. After the success of "Parachtues" many believed this band had had it's time... a follow up album could not match nor even dream of surpassing the brilliance of "Parachutes"... well, I disagree. There are very few bands in the world who's music really gets to me like U2's music does, but I have to say that Coldplay has achieved this... they touch my soul in a way I thought only U2 could. I get the same tingles when I hear them on the radio, the same excitement when they announce upcoming tour dates, the same giddiness when I see them on TV.
There is something about their music that is really unique. I know they have been accused of ripping other British artists' styles with the likes of Radiohead and Travis... I personally fail to see any resemblence between the three bands.

Coldplay will be around for a very long time. Yes, I am saying it again. With the release of their upcoming album "A Rush Of Blood To The Head", they will prove to the world that "Parachutes" was not a fluke. I have heard quite a few tracks already from the new album and I am simply blown away. I admit I had some skepticisms of my own regarding whether or not it would live up to the hype... but I have all the confidence in the world that it will. "In My Place", released as their first single, was a brilliant move. It's one of those songs that get better with each listen.

I lost a co-workers friendship over this band... but in the end, it made me see that the friendship in question was not all that real in the first place. No matter, I will be seeing Coldplay in Seattle at The Paramount on the 4th of September & I will be celebrating!

Anyway... I just wanted to share my opinions regarding this great band, and open up a discussion for those who agree... There is a lot of Coldplay love out there, so let's share people.

*Sweet justice... "In My Place" just came on the radio.....

I have the entire album, I don't know, I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but it's not by any means a "great" record, it's a solid 2nd album for them, but I'm not even sure it's as good as Parachutes, I like Coldplay but I think they are woefully over-rated

I Coldplay. Shiver and Everything's Not Lost destroy me.

I really do hope they are around for a long time. But by Chris Martin's recent interviews, their future seems to be a bit of a question mark lately.

I would love to see the live - but unfortunately, they aren't coming to Florida this time around.

You used the crackball!! ( the Doodle)

Lately, Chris has alluded to this last album quite possibly being their last bc it was a very hard album to make, and very difficult on the band. The band evidently is having alot of problems getting along with each other, etc.. This might be the reason for the short tour.
I dunno..

I love Coldplay though.. and I truly hope they can work it out.

Normal

That sucks Carrie. Hopefully they'll last though. I have seen them twice already and they are soooo good. I don't care if others think they aren't 'unique' enough, but their music moves me and that's not easy to do.

btw--> the crack smilie is my favourite. hee hee

I thought yellow was a good song, and I had not heard anything else.
then last week I saw them in concert on tv. I thought it was good.
my one problem:
whether it's on purpose or not, I cannot get past the radiohead similarities. he looks like thom, sounds a little like him, and the piano......
I mean, their tunes are good, but I kept sitting there thinking "they're writing tunes and giving them some twists and turns just like radiohead would".
I don't need another radiohead, I like the one I got.:lemon:

I prefer Doves. I've just not been able to get into Coldplay.

nobody can listen to Parachutes and say that it is not a great album.

I was listening to it the other day and I was just drawn into the music again. I'd forgotten how amazing it really was.

they are, if anything, under-rated

I don't think it's a great album. I really only liked the first song, too bad it was only 2:13mins long.

I think they have something, whether they find it or not...is up to them.
