That eternal debate is too ilusive so it can't be settled but it's good for a band to have ambition.

i love bands like Pearl Jam who just keep kicking ass and don't feel the need to remind everyone all the time.

It's Guy Berryman.

Anyway, I like quite a bit of Coldplay's music. It's nice when you want to listen to something that will get you all good and relaxed. It's very mellowing. But I when I want to feel a range of emotions, I listen to U2. And that basically sums up my opinion of Coldplay.

I think it's good to have ambition, but I think when you say you want to be the best band in the world too many times, it becomes a bit of an overkill. It's a different with Bono - he can pull off the cocky attitude well because it just comes naturally to him. Plus, he had enough passionate music to back those claims up with when he made them in U2's early days. Chris Martin doesn't do "cocky" very well, in my opinion. I just hope he never decides to dye his hair black and put on a leather suit.

also, Coldplay doesn't have a giant lemon. and their music is wimpy compared to U2. if they were to pick a fruit to walk out of, it should be a 10 ft grape.

Want to feel a range of emotions? How much Coldplay have you listened to? Listen to A Rush of Blood to the Head all the way through and then tell me a 'range of emotions' isn't felt, you cold hearted bastard!

But seriously - everyone here, listen to 'Amsterdam', the last track on AROBTTH.

'Stood on the edge
Tied to the noose
But you came along
And you cut me loose...'

GREAT BLOODY SONG!

Trust me, I've listened to their first two albums quite a bit, as well as the live CD. It all really seems like the same type of emotion to me, unless their b-sides are different, which I doubt (I've never bothered with their singles). U2 have angry songs, sad songs, sexy songs, happy songs, mellow songs, laid-back songs, etc. etc. etc. Coldplay either makes me feel relaxed or sad. The only song of theirs that has made me feel somewhat different is Politik. But then again, other people probably experience emotions differently. So while you experience a range of emotions on AROBTTH, I just don't feel it. And to be fair, U2 have put out far more albums. I'll eat all my criticisms if Coldplay ever release a song as sexy as Do You Feel Loved or as angry as Bullet The Blue Sky. They've still got time to change their musical mood, but judging from what I've heard so far on X&Y, they're still stuck on mellow.

What I find scary is how much coldplay emulates U2.

-The new Coldplay video which uses the old popmart screen.

-The CP DVD which mentions Red Rocks and U2 in the tour diary section.

-Having similar value to u2 and having the same instrumentation as the group.

The 4 screens, one on each member" that were used on their 2003 tour.

I'm now wondering if coldplay have ever played at the same concert or have ever met.

Yeah, that is weird, because Chris and Bono both play piano.

Oh, wait. No.

Who cares. Bono's been pretty arrogant in his day.
Coldplay have written songs which U2 couldn't touch, U2 have written songs which Coldplay couldn't touch (more of them, obviously). I see distinct differences in the styles of the two bands, but then I seem to be in the minority.
I don't care to compare the two on such a critical level. I feel lucky to love the music of both bands so greatly - as if U2 wasn't enough, along came Coldplay.
Anyway, Chris Martin reminds me more of Sting than Bono.

Bono played piano in 2001 on Sweetest thing. Also, piano has been a frequent part of the u2 sound.

Aside from CM sitting at a piano, I have trouble seeing how CP tries to seperate itself from u2.

Such as...?

I don't want to come across as an arrogent U2 fanboy here, because I do like Coldplay. I'm acctually planning on seeing them live this summer. They are not however anywhere close to reaching U2's level of talent or songcraft.

It'd probably be an "Apple"
