Although it appears we are back on topic for now, I'd just like to say that I think there's been enough Oasis discussion in this thread...especially since it sounds like all that is going to come from it are fights. Let's just keep sticking with the Coldplay, please.

Hahaha, didn't El-Mel predict a 6.5 from Pitchfork?

Yes, intedomine, you did bitch. Numerous times. But that's okay, since it's all cracking.

death and all his friends (the track) is really growing on me. it's just kind of progresses awesomely. still Lost! and Cemeteries of London are holding the top spots with DAAHS and Strawberry Swing moving up quickly. The acoustic lovers in Japan is better than the album track in my opinion.

They're also proper working-class, like Bono, and not Privately Educated poor little rich boys like Thom Yorke and Chris Martin.
Bono isn't working class, that's a myth put about by Bono himself All of U2, except for Larry possibly, are solidly middle class.

No shame there. So were The Clash. It's how you come off, and who you play to.

Coldplay could have been orphaned and crawled out of the gutter, but they scream complacent privilege.

I think I was being sarcastic at the time, but yes, I believe I did.

Not that I'm terribly wise. Pfork is just predictable.

The new record has inspired me to put together a 'Best Of Coldplay' playlist. In doing so, I realized that I had forgotten how good AROBTTH is. I mean...I used 4 songs from Parachutes, 3 songs from X&Y, and 4 songs from Viva La Vida, and 8 songs from AROBTTH. The record is that good. Anyway, here it is - I tried to give it a good flow:

1.Politik
2.Violet Hill
3.Talk
4.A Whisper
5.Cemeteries Of London
6.Trouble
7.Warning Sign
8.Shiver
9.God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
10.Yellow
11.In My Place
12.Clocks
13.Speed Of Sound
14.Viva La Vida
15.The Scientist
16.Don't Panic
17.A Rush Of Blood To The Head
18.X&Y
19.Death And All His Friends

Looked like more of a Stone Roses ripoff to me. I Wanna Be Adored, anyone?

Uhm, you're not allowed to compare any other bands to Coldplay other than U2, ass.

I had one I was pretty proud of before I switched over to my Mac. Can't comment on the flow, but our song choices would be about 1/2 of the same - you automatically fail for no "Amsterdam," however.

I'm going to pick this little bastard (not YLB) up on vinyl in about 50 minutes.

Huzzah!
