What's X&Y? Is that from that wannabe-U2 band?

Mmmm... french fries with vomit while watching "Dallas" and then hockey. It's like heaven.

I do enjoy Coldplay, good band.

But it seems their popular as ever, when their latest is their weakest effort.

Parachutes
Rush of Blood to the Head

I'll admit, Coldplay does have a HUGE U2 influence in them, no one can deny it. But what better band to take after than them? U2 most likely was criticized for sounding like other bands (I'm not familiar with the music of the time, but everyone sounds like someone). I think that sooner or later they will branch out. As long as they aren't going for it note for note, its fine. Chris Martin's voice is different than Bonos, chord structures arent alike, guitar player does take a lot of Edge qualities, but not you can tell the difference. Just give them time to branch, they have a great start. Music is music. They had enough to get out there and start something of their own, its easy to say they completely copied a band, but the people like it. And Coldplay fans aren't too main stream, as U2 fans. All of their albums are worth listening, a different sound in each. Although I would agree that X&Y is their weakest, but they only have 3 out. U2 was only at War on their 3rd. Their debut and Rush of Blood was great in my opinion. And thier live shows... The energy and passion is there. You can have your opinion of not liking the music, it not being your taste. But saying they are a bad band isn't right. It takes a lot to do what they do.

And you have to admit, this is an awesome way to open a concert.

That sometime should be now. Get on with it, laddy! Could you somehow include Chris Martin catching his head on fire? And flying out the window with the little smileys?

coldplay is a really good band. the people that hate them so much are just afraid that they'll become bigger than U2.
