Fixed that for you.

Still looking forward to the Eno collaboration. Look at it this way - it certainly can't be any worse than the last album.
A rush of blood is epic

Yes, the two of you ARE peas in a pod. That makes a lot of sense.

I'm disappointed I missed all the banter between GG, Axver, and Brau.

I agree with this.

Yeah, Jack only kind of sounds like that guy Robert Plant at times.

What a hack.

But LMP, Chris Martin sounds like Dave Matthews, John Mayer, and all those other breathy singers.

You mean that's not better?

Martin sounds nothing like Matthews or Mayer....

And I'd rather a breathy vocal, than a whiny, half-arsed squeal....

One is rock and roll. The other is wispy wimp-rock.

Enjoy.

[swoon]But he's so tender and emotional when he sings in falsetto. [/swoon]

Are you talking about Chris Martin's falsetto? In my opinion his falsetto is what brings Parachutes down from a 5 star album to a 4 star album. I generally cannot stand the guy's falsetto! There are a few exceptions though... like the ending of The Scientist.

you sarcasm detector is faulty.

Though it has its moments, I think Martin uses his falsetto as a (wobbly) crutch because his natural singing voice is so limited. Falsetto should be a spice, not the main course. And if the main course is rather unsubstantial then perhaps it's time to get some cooking lessons.

His falsetto is absolutely awful when he uses it for any length of time other than 'sparingly' (again, see Fix You for the singular lowest of low points in their relatively short career). I don't think his regular voice is anything above mediocre, and it is the singular crutch that I think they have creatively stopping them from perhaps branching too far, or being able to stretch themselves to anything truly great, but I don't think it's all that bad either. It's not awful, just not 'great' enough to carry them through too much.

Jack Whites voice does and can do everything it needs and everything he probably wants. Chris Martins is too limited to do everything he probably wants, and Coldplay maybe will need.

Agreed!


Oh and Diemen, I didn't fail to recognize your sarcasm. I just made my own point about his falsetto, that's all.

Jack White on par with Robert Plant? Did I misunderstand something there? Because mostly that thought makes me go
