So looking like an asshole blowing smoke at the camera and licking Bono's being a badass?

Okay, I guess we have different definitions of the word.

Kissing Bono is badass, ya wouldn't wanna mess with Ali.

Oasis are badass, if a little stupid, in getting kicked off a ferry in Amsterdam.

Badassism isn't necessarily a reason to like Oasis though.

Mind you those chicks in that pic posted by GirlsAloudFan is a reason for excitement.

Heard a story, Liam and Hutchence were at some pub in Dublin and they were almost about to kill each other until the ever-diplomatic Bono stepped in to sort out their differences. Hutch went back to his hotel and wrote Elegantly Wasted with the original lyrics "We're Better Than Oasis" instead the more commercially acceptable "I'm Elegantly Wasted."


Anyway, listened to VLV or DAAHF for the first time and it's a grower. Immediate stand-outs:

42
Lost
Chinese Sleep Chant

Strawberry Swing (Travis-esque)

Did the album come out in Australia or are you listening to a leak you bitched about everyone for listening to?

I still think you're confusing retarded hooligan-ism with badassery, but that's just me.

David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, the guys from Pearl Jam, and Jonny Greenwood all qualify as B.A. in my book. Not only do them pwn with their music, but they don't fucking cater to anyone or go out and make fools out of themselves in public (well, that's up to debate). Bowie never sat down and aped another artist for success - no, he did his own freaky Bowie thing and pwned the entire decade of the '70s. That's just one example, but the guys from Oasis... come on. The dudes from Coldplay aren't close - they would be if they kicked Chrissy Martin out of the band though.

We can both agree though that the guys from Gin Blossoms pretty much define the term "badass" though.

Gin Blossoms should've been locked up and they should've thrown away the key, that's how badass those legends were

Martin ain't badass, but badassery ain't necessarily commendable. I'll love me Coldplay as they are.

How is Greenwood badass? I thought he was just some reclusive nerd.

Bowie I agree, twisted badassery.

Wouldn't hooliganism be a British form of American Badassery?


Yeah I purchased the album from me local on Saturday. Didn't appreciate or understand the flow at first, but then it finally clicked today. Cracking, and it's constantly growing.

Anyone know the extent of Timbaland's input, Lost! sounds like he's had his gifted hands on some of the production duties there.

And I hardly bitched. I just wondered how hard it was for folk to wait for a week.

Pitchfork have had their say.

6.5



For the record:
X&Y - 4.9
AROBTTH - 5.1
Parachutes - 5.3


Not really a proper review, just another (742 and counting....) predictable, tiresome anti-Chris Martin tirade that is driven more by tall poppy syndrome than proper analysis of the music, but the chap does have some nice things to say about Lost! and Strawberry Swing.

Fyi, for those of us with Sirius radio, on the Alt channel Coldplay is taking over the airwaves all this week. The only reason I know this is I tuned in last night and wondered why in the hell the Alt channel was playing Britney Spears' "Toxic".

For it being Pitchfork and the band being Coldplay, that review was actually quite good!

Wow Pitchfork gave Coldplay a half way decent review, I was expecting a 4.7 this time, they seemed to be moving in that direction
