Thank you.

agreed.

I love Coldplay also. I've just been listening to Speed Of Sound in the last few days, and even though the chord progression is extremely similar to Clocks, I think it is a better song than In My Place, the first single off AROBTTH.

They will never be U2, but who cares? Nobody will ever be U2, so we might as well just enjoy Coldplay, cause they do make good music, and they are pretty darn good live.

No, U2 didn't invent rock & roll...but in many ways, I don't think they're rock & roll at all in the conventional sense. I think that's the operative word: conventional. They didn't blantantly lift another band's sound and call it their own.

What makes u2 great, and so appealing, is that they've defied convention. They've created a brand all their own, for better or worse. Coldplay cannot say that....and that's what bothers me when I hear people say they are "the next great band".

But, hey, even I sing along to their songs...

good point! plus, i don't even think they're all *that* similar to U2, so the comparisons are unnecessary in my opinion. i really love coldplay's songs, the lyrics are gorgeous...

I thought Coldplay were officially a Radiohead-lite?

How did I miss this thread? I must be the most infamous Coldplay hater here! I really dislike them and find Chris Martin's voice (as well as his looks) sickening and intolerable and whiney. This makes everything they do completely unbearable to me. They are extremely overrated, especially on this forum, and the comparisons to U2 make me want to hurl (though Clocks is a lame ripoff of UF)

Explain to me how Clocks rips off UF, U2Kitten. I'm not being an asshole, I just want to know how you figure.

He may have a heart of gold, but his voice bears an uncanny resemblace to Robin, Kermit the Frog's little nephew on Sesame Street. Robin is a cute little reproduction of his uncle, but lacks the wisdom, originality, and integrity of the elder frog.

He wouldn't bother me so much if he wasn't on magazine covers saying he wants to be bigger than Kermit...the biggest frog in the swamp.
