Their best song is "Wake Up."

I enjoy them quite a bit, from time to time.

Of course Coldplay isn't the next U2. There isn't a "next U2." The Walkmen sound kinda interesting though so I'll have to check them out.

good point about there not being a "next u2". i've heard about half the "everyone who..." album. i played "we';ve been had" on my radio show last night. i didn't like anything else on the cd...

Desire4Bono, Coldplay is the band that RS dubbed "our new U2."

Coldplay remind me of the Verve more than anyone else.

Isn't that the truth. I get tired of comparisons. It's not fair. I love Coldplay, but they're not the next U2. They're Coldplay. The Walkmen are the Walkmen. And so on and so on.

People think I'm crazy for this but I honestly think Coldplay sounds a little like "Dark Side of the Moon" era Pink Floyd.

Actually, some bits from "A Whisper" on "The Rush of Blood..." -do- remind me of Pink Floyd for some reason.

"A Whisper" sounds like Pink Floyd? That's an interesting observation. I think the title track sounds like Pink Floyd too. "Dark Side" was made before Chris Martin was even born, but I wonder if he's ever listened to that album before anyway. It's entirely possible.

The only thing about Coldplay that reminds me of U2 at all is the guitar riff from "In My Place," which sounds exactly like something the Edge might play. To me Coldplay has a completely different vibe than U2. They are much more mellow - almost mopey at times. Don't get me wrong, I like them, but calling them the next U2 is laughable. And why exactly do we need a younger U2 sound-a-like band anyway? Shouldn't younger bands be developing their own unique sound and identity, just as U2 did all those years ago?

Stereo is my fav song. Must get more of them, I forgot about them for a bit.

Coldplay's clocks sounds slightly U2ey. Dunno about the rest though.

I love Coldplay, and am even a member of their official message board. They're mellow on record, but kick some serious live. Still God knows no one can replace U2. I don't think even they like the label "next U2".
