I'm definitely a fan. Let's face it, they've only done 2 albums, and both have been pretty dang good. You cant say that about many bands.

Good band, you need to experience/hear them live to really appreciate them IMO.

they're boring, but tolerable.

but not boring as in matchbox twenty. only matchbox twenty sucks as bad as matchbox twenty. they're the creed and nickelback of slow adult contemporary.

They're a good band; not out-of-this-world fantastic but pretty damn good. A Rush of Blood... was definitely an improvement on their debut, so it's interesting to see if they can lift their game again. So far the only real spine-tingling moment from for me has been "Clocks" - what a drop-dead gorgeous song.

Theyre bland, uninteresting, boring, no energy for young lads (im 16 but hey when im in my twenties i won't slow down) plus aint never chris martin going to run about wearing shades, talk to presidents, steal boats, smoke cigars and say rude things about french presidents................... save Africa maybe, but the music dont make me feeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllll.

i think coldplay are o.k
i've got AROBTTH
clocks was overplayed too much, therefore the effect of the song has worn off me.
in terms of songwriting i think chris martin seems to be a one trick pony. i hope that he can progress beyond this.
I don't think coldplay "RAWK!!!!!" (leave that for other heavier bands) but i like to think of them as middle of the road and pleasant allthesame

I don't see how you could hate them - they're too vanilla bland to inspire that sort of passion, I would imagine.

I think they're alright. They create some really pretty and lovely melodies, sort of candy for the ears if you will. The DVD is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully shot, especially if you like black and white photography. Live, they're good, nice singalongs, etc. I enjoy both their albums, but also haven't listened to them in a long time.

I really liked them for a few months, right about the time A Rush of Blood to the Head came out, but I got sick of them awfully fast. No way in hell are they the next U2.

They are a far cry from being the next U2, but I still think they're an awesome band.
