I have just watched coldplay doing Square One on Later with Jools Holland and it was superb. They have certainly shook the music world up. Their album is superb and the best thing I have heard in years.

aah, I have to go back into diplomatic mode now...expecting Coldplay to do a 'KID A' before we can call them original is a bit much!

I'm not expecting Martin suddenly to say "Right, YOU! Buckland! Stop playing that guitar and help me out with this MiniMoog...then we can get going on that VCS3 over there...!" and just make something TOTALLY unlike anything they've done...it's not really what they do! Given what I've said before it's a U-turn yes, I know...but still...when Radiohead made Kid A, it still had Radiohead all over it. When U2 made Achtung Baby it was still PASTED with U2. I think if Coldplay just change the way they play they could be better! They do seem to stick to the same formula and more importantly SOUNDS since Parachutes!!

Square One [just seen on 'Later'] sounds fine though!

Coldplay has truly surpassed Radiohead with the phenomenal first week success of X&Y (and without the benefit of an IPOD commercial to boot). Hail, hail to the new biggest band in the world!

To the naysayers... I know sales don't mean much but the new album got decent reviews and I'm sure with the continued world-wide success of X&Y, there will be critic revisionism on the level of Led Zeppelin or U2's POP causing X&Y to become labeled a classic. The when you add the huges sales to the critics' revisonishm, voila! Classic! All bow down to real rock n' roll Coldplay style! New Radiohead album! pfahfff!

In commemoration of Coldplay's huge success! Here is a copy and paste of Thom Yorke's greatest lyrical masterpiece and favorite song of the classic Kid A!

Quote:
Who's in bunker, who's in bunker?
Women and children first
Women and children first
Women and children
I'll laugh until my head comes off
I swallow till I burst
Until I burst
Until I..

Who's in bunker, who's in bunker
I've seen too much
I haven't seen enough
You haven't seen enough
I'll laugh until my head comes off
Women and children first
And children first
And children..

Here I'm alive, everything all of the time
Here I'm alive, everything all of the time

Ice age coming, ice age coming
Let me hear both sides
Let me hear both sides
Let me hear both..

Ice age coming, ice age coming
Throw me in the fire
Throw me in the fire
Throw me in the..

We're not scaremongering
This is really happening, happening
We're not scaremongering
This is really happening, happening

Mobiles working
Mobiles chirping
Take the money and run
Take the money and run
Take the money..

Here I'm alive, everything all of the time
Background:
The first of the children

I'm surprised at some people's love of Coldplay on this thread to boot!

If Coldplay made their 'Bends' album, tried to change their style, 'experimented', etc... the naysayers on this board would be quick to say they are trying to be like Radiohead and pan them anyways. I could almost guarantee it! It's the nature of RH fans...

No, Mercury and Pluto exist in the same galaxy.

Radiohead and Coldplay do not.

Coldplay is from this galaxy. While Radiohead is way out there.

True. Radiohead are visionaries and innovators.

Coldplay have their feet firmly on the ground.

And their lips closely aligned to the record company bosses' anuses.

Pink Floyd were visionaries.
Radiohead is just riding that similar wave.

Coldplays lastest album is better than U2's last 2 and also Radiohead's last 2 albums.
