That's the point, neither of these guitarist would want to try playing like the other. Weller is a traditionalist, greenwood is an experimentalist

I'm not saying he's bad...but I don't see where you get the brialliant guitarist thing from.

Absolutely fantastic songwriting in that group.
Oh dear, with a username like that I expected better taste. the Smiths are/were shite and no smart arse Gay Morrissey lyrics will ever change the fact that they were indeed shite. Radiohead and Coldplay are 2 great bands, one clearly inspired by the other. Just that Radiohead haven't released a truly great album since 1997's Ok Computer, Kid A was good but patchy as were Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief. Coldplay's latest album, after a week of listening, is very good indeed!

U just about said it all their, cos apart from U2, and Simple Minds maybe, the 80's were really shite for music unless you think Spandau ballet and Duran Duran were ground breaking artists.

smiths and the police are some of my favorite bands..who both happen to be from the 80s and both split up and both singers went off to make their own albums ... and though i do still like both morrissey's and sting's lyrics their actual music nowadays itself will never compare to the original band's...
especially without marr's guitarplaying....
or stewart copeland's drumming

honestly, all the talent that coldplay ammasses collectively doesn't even amount to a fraction that 7onny greenwood possesses.

in fact, coldplay's guitarist is really quite poor. he's adds "fills", he serves no purpose. coldplay is only marginally better than keane, and that my friends, is about as bad as gets when it comes to brit pop.

Whinge whinge whinge, get over it mate!

You hate coldplay, not the music, you hate the concept of coldplay. You're biased. I Can't take what you're saying seriously anymore.

By the way, here's my major problem with the anti-Coldplay sentiment that exists on this board.

It seems that this fact applies to when considering how good a band is:

"If a band isn't daring, then they are shit."

That's the bullshit theory that exists on this forum.

Once a band manages to generate some kind of mainstream appeal, they are thought of with negativity. That's a disgraceful way of forming opinions about bands.

The fact that Coldplay, an unfashionable band with an unfashionable lead singer unfashionable music for the 21st century, CAN generate some kind of mainstream appeal is quite admirable in this day and age.

I'm a big radiohead fan by the way. It's just I get the feeling there are some people who are letting their prejudices against Coldplay get in the way of deciphering whether a song sounds good or not.

Just because it's mainstream, doesn't make it bad. Anyone who has that opinion is a supercillious snobby tosspot

Ahhh man don't mention The Police they were crap as was most of Stin'g solo efforts. He is the biggest pretensious arsehole out there. I remember him saying about Larry and Adams Mission Impossible theme version....."My 10yr old could have done better than that" or something like that....Sting was/is a nobhead!

you're right - it's not daring. but they said this album was going to be about them stretching their musical ability.

do you honestly think they have?

do you think if van gogh had painted sunflowers over and over...and over and over again, people would start to lose interest and call him a one trick pony?

exactly.

Coldplay have been trying to re-create U2's fourth studio album for their entire career to date, and thus far they haven't succeeded.

I think they should move on and choose a new direction.
