HTDAAB is a much better album than X&Y in my opinion, but X&Y's main flaw is its inconsistent track order and it's length.

I reckon A Message should be left off X&Y, and that pointless Til Kingdom Come Song.

Square One is beautiful IMO, and a perfect opener.

They're both not great albums, but a great collection of songs (HTDAAB), and a good collection of songs (X&Y)

X&Y does have an issue with the track order and overall quality and lyrics of the tracks.

All of the songs bleed into one big song, and not in the good 'Dark Side of the Moon' way, more like an Insititute set

I think you summarized my thoughts exactly. I still have a cursury listen to their albums though.

That was a good one, I'll have to remember it.

1. X & Y (About a 7/10, still haven't become sick of songs like "Speed Of Sound" and "Talk" even though my sister plays the CD a lot)
2. A Rush Of Blood To The Head (An 8/10 before you heard the songs to death on the radio, a 6/10 after)
3. Parachutes ("Don't Panic" and "Yellow" are great. Rest is complete rubbish)

Overrated band to say the least. But then again, X&Y wasn't really earning critical acclaim to begin with.......so overrated amongst mainstream music lovers seems like the more accurate definition.

1) Parachutes - think it's great and overall the purest & strongest. before they even were conscious that they might be big, they were good.

2) AROBTTH and X&Y - tied for me. My favorite song is "Warning Sign" from the 2nd album (love it, love it, love it) and "Talk" is my favorite from the latest one.
