Coldplay--Love or Hate?

I usually get totally mixed answers when asking this question to U2 fans. So the question is: Do you love or hate Coldplay and why?

They're pretty good. I wouldn't say I love them, but AROBTTH was a feckin' brilliant album, and there were some really stong songs on Parachutes. Moses off of the live album is really good too. I'd love to see a cover of "A Sort of Homecoming" dedicated to Apple on their next album.

Eh, I used to love them... But that was when I was experiencing U2 and Radiohead withdrawal. They were a good substitute, and I'm sure anyone could see why.

I don't mind them. Still have to say that Parachutes is bounds above A Rush of Blood to the Head.

Oh, definitely. I thought AROBTTH was damn boring, to be honest. Parachutes was of much better quality.

I loved AROBTTH.. Parachutes was great too. But songs like In my Place And clocks are amazing... I could see them doing what U2's doing now in another 10 or 15 years.

I love em. They have a great melancholic sound, in my opinion. Great contrasts on a single album as well, between songs like Clocks and Green Eyes, or Shiver and Spies.

They don't seem to be big on changing their style though, but I'm happy with their style the way it is.

I'll agree that they're great live, although I only know this from seeing the DVD - full of energy, and a nice light show too.

At first i hated them. Then i bought AROBTTH and fell in love with them, then i bought Parachutes and loved them even more. It's good music if you need to relax. I often play them to help me fall asleep because the music is so ambient, smooth and relaxing.

I really like them, but to be honest, it's been well over a year since I've listened to them.

I really like Coldplay a lot. Saw them live last year and it was a great show. I'm definitely looking forward to their next album.

i neither love nor hate coldplay. their music just never drew me in, with one exception: i have grown to love 'don't panic' because of the 'garden state' soundtrack (which i love as much as the movie).

I love them. I didn't care for Parachutes much at first, but after AROBTTH came out, Parachutes grew on me. I'd rank AROBTTH in the top 5 albums of all time, and I've been a huge music fan since the mid 70's.

They're the only band I'd consider in the same class as U2. It remains to be seen where they take it next, but I have high hopes for them.

"My feeling is that it is cool for people to share our music -- as long as no one is making money from the process. We tell people who come to our concerts that they can tape the shows if they want. I think it is cool that people are so passionate about our music" -- Bono
The continuous search for purpose...
