X&Y Vs. HTDAAB

Square One Vs. Vertigo
Like both songs, but Vertigo has a bit more edge to it.
0-1

What If Vs. Miracle Drug
Neither are the greatest songs on their albums, prefer Miracle Drug ever so slightly
0-2

White Shadows Vs. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
SYCMIOYO, no contest
0-3

Fix You Vs. Love And Peace Or Else
LAPOE is the best song on HTDAAB in my opinion.
Again, no contest.
0-4

Talk Vs. City Of Blinding Lights
Love Talk, COBL is good but not great, I'll give this one to Coldplay.
1-4

X&Y Vs. All Because Of You
Neither.
Tie: 1-4

Speed Of Sound Vs. A Man And A Woman
AMAAW is very underrated, in my opinion
1-5

A Message Vs. Crumbs From Your Table
Can't decide, another tie.
Tie: 1-5

Low Vs. One Step Closer
2-5

The Hardest Part Vs. Original Of The Species
2-6

Swallowed In The Sea Vs. Yahweh
2-7

Twisted Logic Vs. Fast Cars
2-8


X&Y 2
HTDAAB 8



I like Coldplay and all three of their albums, but I think that HTDAAB is a far better album than X&Y.
Also agree with bsp77 about the need for Coldplay to change their style for the next album.
this may not make sense but i think X&Y vs HTDAAB is a far closer competition when you dont comapre them song to song and just compare whole album to album.
i know that doesn't necesssarily make sense cause an album is made up of the songs (duh) but i remember in the recent rolling stone interview Bono ends off his own review of HTDAAB with something along the lines of HTDAAB as a whole isn't equal to the sum of it's parts "and that fucking annoys me".
this is where i kind of agree: if i look at each song on HTDAAB individually they're great - i struggle to find a favourite or one i don't like - but as an album it just doesn't do that much for me

X&Y is the opposite for me - i like it as an album and think its great as a whole, but pick the songs apart individually and i could list a few i dont think are great and probably wouldn't rate it too much.

so song to song, HTDAAB kicks X&Y's butt (as proven above) but album to album... i dunno, if i'm honest i'm more likely to listen to X&Y on any given day.

1 AROBTTH
2 Parachutes
3 X & Y

That said, I listen to X & Y the most out of all three, but as has already been said, they need to start exploring other directions.

This is a far better method to compare albums:
The 5 star rating

How to dismantle an atomic bomb:

Vertigo 4,5
Miracle drug 3,5
Sometimes... 3,5
Love and peace or else 5
City of blinding lights 4
All because of you 3
A man and a woman 2,5
Crumbs from your table 3,5
One step closer 2,5
Original of the species 5
Yahweh 2,5

39,5/11=3,6

X&Y:

Square one 3,5
What if 3,5
White shadows 3,5
Fix you 4
Talk 4
X&Y 4,5
Speed of sound 3,5
A message 3
Low 2,5
The hardest part 2,5
Swallowed in the sea 3,5
Twisted logic 3
Till kingdom come 2

43/13=3,3

As soon as I saw Chris Martin with a megaphone yelling at a giant fake robot, I almost died in my chair of laughter

sure enough, this video will hit number 1 on VH1/MTV in 5 seconds

followed by My Lumps and some dumb Rap video

Okay. I do believe that is the stupidest video I've ever seen since The Killers' video for All These Thing's I've Done.
