neither are even close to being one of my favorite bands. they're both overrated, but i can listen to both bands and enjoy them.

I really liked Definitely Maybe, and a fair bit of What's the Story. I liked the spirit in their early stuff, and still do. Nonetheless, I don't see how Noel, at the height of fame, could write lyrics like:

She's got a sister
and God only knows how I missed her
and on the palm of her hand is a blister.

... and still claim to be part of the "best band in the world". Don't think so, Noelyboy. It was hilarious then and is still funny now.

Neither Liam, Noel nor Chris M have half the charisma that Bono has - I find them boring front men compared to B.


Well where are these soulful Coldplay songs?? Take Speed Of Sound for instance, it sounds polished, competent, yet utterly sterile..the songs have no "feel"...Just listen to the yearning of Live Forever, Don't Look Back in Anger, that is real emotion. As for the lyrics thing, every band has a dodgy lyric, are you saying U2 doesn't have theirs? Doesn't mean they're not great.

Amsterdam
Warning Sign
Shiver
to name my favourite three 'emotionally'.

It's a very different emotion and doesn't come across in the more commonplace songs, such as In My Place and Trouble but it's there all the same.

Where's the option for just "both"?


I don't prefer one over the other... I like them both... depends on the mood as to which album I pull out

I don't like Coldplay so defenitly Oasis. Plus they are more rock n' roll and more self aware of how pretentious and arrogant they are.

I like Coldplay, but I'd go with Oasis. That said, I find both of them slightly over-praised.

It's easy enough to hear the soulful songs... if you have ears, of course.

I have yet to see a lyric from Bono that is as utterly ridiculous as the one quoted above. Elebvation is daft in places, but it still piddles all over Noely's nonsensical jabbering (in that particular song, I mean - although generally speaking it applies too, IMO).

Quite.

It's all subjective anyway. So all this is as pointless as it ever was. To each her/his its own, and all that logical sensible stuff. Goodnight.

I don't mind listening to either but I agree they're both very overrated. (not as overrated as the Killers are though )

Congratulations on the most condescending post of the night.


I actually like Shiver, probably the only Coldplay song that has balls..


I don't think Coldplay have written anything that approaches the brilliance of these songs:


The Masterplan
Live Forever
Columbia
Wonderwall
Whatever
Don't Look Back in Anger
Some Might Say


and thats just a few of their best..seriously, those songs are flat-out classics, I can't really think of any Coldplay tunes that stand out, its like they aspire to mediocrity..

I have a feeling you haven't heard many Oasis songs.
