Well, there's the good type of ambiguous lyrics, like a song that could refer to many things, and there's Coldplay's lyrics, which border on preschool (not in the good, innocent, David Bowie Kooks or Five Years way).

You cut me down a tree
And brought it back to me
And that's what made me see
Where I was going wrong


And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what your worth




Dribble. Lyrical equivilant of baby food.

Then either don't listen to the band at all or tune out the lyrics and listen to the music only. It's not that hard.

Lyrics are definitely Coldplay's weakest point. They do have some good lyrics, but some are simply awful, and I'd say in general they're less than average. but hey, maybe they'll improve

I have a love-hate relationship with Coldplay... I actually love most of their music, but I still feel inclined to insult them all the time! I think it's a U2 fan guilt thing...plus, their lyrics really are bad.

Wow, what a coincidence that this thread happened to me! Coldplay are also driving me crazy... CRAZY WITH LOVE FOR THIS MIGHTY BAND!!! Their inspirational music truly comes close (not too close, but fairly close) to trumping U2's World Shattering HTDAAB for me. Which is to say, that on an average day, it's a hard decision as to which of these two CDS will form my 'soundtrack for living' for the remainder of that day, in my corporate cubible office... I just love to tell my fellow associate employee contemporaries about the awesomeness of these two bands, or one band... wait, which is which? I forget. I mean, they're just bleeding (the colours) into one big thing, big hope world thing guys.... its all one thing... we're all the same guys... all the same... all the same...

I really enjoyed the first album. I haven't bought one ever since.

I agree wholeheartedly

I actually burnt my english teacher a coldplay cd, and as a surprise a U2 cd.

He only listens to the U2 cd.

I think X&Y is all about broken things and trying to fix them

With U2 for me, I tend to usually enjoy many of the non released tracks (the non-singles)

I'm no Coldplay fan, I did like a few of their "old" songs, and brought X&Y. (Now I just Put it in the CD player and skip to track 5)
(back on topic)

With Coldplay, I tend to only listen to the released songs (X&Y i'm talking about) So I find myself only using the CD for 3 songs...as compared with U2 (I dont know if its just because I am a U2 fan) but eventually, (Achtung Baby, Pop, JT all eventually grew on me) HTDAAB I feel over instantly, loved every track (and still do)

X&Y just wont grow on me.

I liked Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head is one of my favorite albums. But I just can't get into X&Y for some reason. I tried listening to it again recently, and I still thought it sucked.

To me X&Y is there best album. A Rush of Blood to the Head and Parachutes are good but not as good as X&Y. I agree with you CJ, there lyrics are starting to drive me crazy because they make absolutley no sense.
