Lara I thought he did. He is on my tv right now telling me so!

Somewhere Chris thought that to be introspective it required synth or sequencing in a song.

You can be introspective with just an acoustic guitar. I like the album, it's solid, but too much damn sequencing.

Not that my reactions will be any more meaningful than the next guys's, but as a premier Coldplay fan, I'll post my reactions on Tuesday. I'm not participating in the leak. I listened to the leaked HTDAAB and I think if I waited, the experience would have been more special.

One thing for everyone to listen for, the chorus in the song 'The Hardest Part' sounds identical to the chorus in 'Wild Honey'. I guess if Coldplay want to be the best band in the world, why not copy the current best band in the world!
My biggest problem with X&Y is that, for a lot of the songs, they've cherry picked from music history (Radiohead, The Beatles U2, the list goes on...) Nearly every song has an obvious influence and those that don't sound like typical Coldplay. Boring.

Let me add Kraftwerk to that list, soooooo many I forgot.

Coldplay should be sued.......

As far as I'm concerned there is room enough for several good bands.
They didn't ask for the U2 comparison.
We know how journalist are sometimes unfair to our boys and so they will be to Coldplay.
U2 could be criticized just as much as Coldplay.
I'm not shocked by the snobbery on this board, just tired of it.
Good point. Rock could use more ambition.

I really wonder how much of the anti-Coldplay sentiment here would be if it wasn't for the U2 influence (in the music) and the "next U2" label (in the media). It's even more surprising since both bands like each other.

Why should someone like/ dislike a band because people think they are like U2/ random band? I don't get it. Seriously.

If the spice Girls and U2 loved each others music I'm not going to start liking or hating the Spice Girls anymore.

I don't know but I have seen this argument come up again and again: "I dislike Coldplay because they sound like U2".

All I can say is that U2 must be either laughing or dissapointed when they watch the video for "Speed of Sound"

I have been through the album twice and, so far, it is incredible. Probably like it better than HTDAAB. That's right, and I am not ashamed about it either.
