I would put them in my top ten band list. They're songs are pretty nice. Clocks is the only one that gives me the feeling a U2 song does. It's amazing what they've done in two albums though. We'll see if they can stay together for 25 years and see how good they are. Songs like In My Place bore me, but Clocks, Moses, One I Love, and Don't Panic are pretty good.

i love them. i was pretty ambivalent about them until i saw them live at a pretty small club, right as AROBTTH was released. Definitely converted me....

I don't love them but don't hate them, I simply like Coldplay, very good band live, 2 good albums, my best friend is crazy about them... etc.

I still don't own a Coldplay album.

I almost bought one...but I got a Cure album instead...since I own no Cure...and that seems very shameful.

Coldplay are a young band, yet they sound middle-aged, lacking in energy and spirit.

I really think they are talented, great lyrics. But I got "A Rush Of Blood To the Head," and I was a little bored. Music I really get into to, has goos meldoies, lyrics, but it has to keep my interest. U2 is great for me because they rock and they are passionate. And Coldplay is passionate. But when it comes down to it I only really like 3 Coldplay songs "Yellow," "Clocks" and "Politik." But they are great to music, I am happy people are infulenced by them!

Congrats on your first Cure album!!! I suggest The Walk from them or Head on the Door! Hell, get them all Great band. Oh yeh, Coldplay...if it's the band I think it is... is that the band with the singer that sounds alittle like Bono? If it is then I don't care for them otherwise I don't know no Coldplay. Carry on

A Rush of Blood to the Head is easily the best album of the new decade, miles above Parachutes. People keep saying they are the new U2. Not sure about that yet, but if they can keep it up, who knows?

High hopes here too! God-forbid U2 won't last forever so I think Coldplay are worthy contendors to carry on the torch for the upcoming generations. Hopefully they will continue to embrace the mainstream while pushing it into new directions at the same time.

My advice to them through the years (as if I would know!):
1. Maintain a strong friendship above all
2. Always be respectful towards other bands
3. Avoid abusing alcohol and using drugs
4. Seek to blow their own minds

BTW, I highly recommend the concert DVD!

Like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog said:

"I used to like Coldplay when they were better known as U2."

*ahem* Anyways, I like Coldplay, but their next album better not have all kinds of brooding, sad songs. I think we've had enough.
