For me, it's their lyrics. They are kinda cheesy.

Coldplay is great. Saw them at Irving Plaza in NYC. JJ72 opened for them and they were good as well.

If you like Coldplay, check out Starsailor. Their new album is debuting in the US today [Jan. 8] and you really need to buy it. Saw them live last year as well and they were amazing and I'm seeing them again tonight. So yeah, pick up the album. Its amazing!

Wanderer, do you listen to Sparklehorse? He's not exactly rockish, not in the same category as Coldplay or Travis..... but his lyrics are good. I thought if you liked Go Monkey (or whatever that band is) you'd like Sparklehorse too. I have "It's A Wonderful Life", his latest offering, and it's one of my faves.

Yeah Northern Soul is indeed excellent eh bud? Especially History....wowsers!

Anyhoo, I agree with the person above who wrote that "The Man Who" by Travis was great - it really, really is!

And Fran is such a cutie! (and I know how important that is for you Craig! )

The first time I ever heard the Verve, it was 'Bittersweet Symphony' on the radio in 1997.

My thoughts: "Hmmm, sounds like Oasis. Naah, can't be. Too good..."

Another band perhaps nobody has mentioned yet just came to mind - Mercury Rev.

They had an album out a few years ago called 'Deserters Songs', which from what I heard of it, shared a bit of the Coldplay/Travis musical temperament. Actually, I think they're American; could be mistaken however.

Mercury Rev are great! (love the Delta Sun Bottle Neck Stomp) I haven't heard all of All Is A Dream yet, but I really enjoy Jonathan Donahue. I love them.

If you like them, check out Trembling Blue Stars. Broken By Whispers is a really good record, and so is their latest Alive to Every Smile.

Oh, and Mercury Rev are from the States, New York I believe, but have gained a lot more appeal across the pond.
