I like their music a lot, mainly because I can laugh at the people who hate U2 but love Coldplay, but the fact they're tryin to basically BECOME U2 takes away from my experience listening to the new album

I do think the 1st 5 tracks on X&Y are brilliant though, and not even Chris Martin's worst Bono impressions (Speed of Sound vid), or his baby Apple (I just can't stand the name) can stop that

no offense, but bragging about how insulated you are from the evils of mainstream popular culture makes you come off as an unbearably pretentious twat. sorry dude.

Shut the F*CK Up About Coldplay

Good god. The comments made by some on this site sound as if they were coming from that neighbor everyone has had - an old, pissed off man who has so many regrets in his life, a man who decides to deflate any ball that so much crosses an inch into his yard just so he can see children cry.
It sounds like so many here are bitter and worried that Coldplay might get bigger than U2. While that still remains to be seen, may i just ask, who the fuck really cares? And, why does it matter?
Will U2's music be any less good? Will the impact U2's music has had on your life change at all? Will your life be tragically ended?
(The answer is 'no' by the way)
I bet a lot of people who write such horrible things about Coldplay here haven't even heard the new album.

You do realize that you just posted another Coldplay thread.

Their name is even in the title.

It's special moments like these that make a thread memorable.

No offense taken. I'm quite happy I know how to turn off the tv or the radio when something I don't care to watch or hear comes on (or flip past an article I don't want to read). If that makes me pretentions, that's just fine. Far better than whining about how much you hate hearing or seeing something when you can turn the fucking machine off.


(by the way, I'm an indie snob too. )

I'm sick of the hype. Sick of everything to do with this shitawful fucking average band.


Have I told you lately that I love you?

Van Morrison, actually.

I think I'm going to get inspired to start a Van thread.

Yes well Rod Stewart is the Coldplay of his genre, so I thought it was fitting

Not sick of Coldplay themselves, no. I watch VH1 Classic on a regular basis, don't watch the regular VH1 channel often anymore, so I don't really see or hear a lot about them. And I don't know a lot about them as a band. I just know the few songs I occasionally hear on the radio or some of the Music Choice channels I listen to, all of which I've never really minded all that much. Nice relaxing stuff.

No, I'm just a bit tired of the constant arguing regarding them and whether or not they sound like U2. Everybody should just like whatever is appealing to them right now and just remember that any thoughts on who's better than who out of the two or who has better songs/lyrics/whatever are subjective, not objective.

All that said, however, perhaps I shall take indra's advice .

Angela

It's a brilliant album...tracks 1.2.3.5.6.10.11 are very classy.....close to a 5 star effort...at least 4....just brilliant craftsmanship to make the sound they are making.

Coldplay are deserving of many accolades, X&Y isn't progressive but it IS different for Coldplay. The main reason people think Coldplay are sounding the same is probably because Martin's vocal is kind of limited in it's scope to sound different. Not his fault just the way his voice is.

Like to hear him growl or something on the next album.

But I do think there is too much hype, both negative and positive. I mean where's the hype about the new Oasis album? Arguably a better band.

Even so, I'm sick of having to defend a band that is making the music they want to make and are actually having some appeal to a world that is seemingly obsessed with modern punk, rap, rnb and idol winners and runners up and 6th placers. Just down to earth musicians they are, they haven't done anything bad so let them do what they want to...

At least the publicity has kept the white stripes out of the spotlight though...
