I really enjoyed the first album. I haven't bought one ever since.

I have a love-hate relationship with Coldplay... I actually love most of their music, but I still feel inclined to insult them all the time! I think it's a U2 fan guilt, their lyrics really are bad.
I agree wholeheartedly

I actually burnt my english teacher a coldplay cd, and as a surprise a U2 cd.

He only listens to the U2 cd.

Cubicle music = Sucking vortex of death

Run Kieran!

It's not cubicle music, it's lifestyle music!

I think X&Y is all about broken things and trying to fix them

With U2 for me, I tend to usually enjoy many of the non released tracks (the non-singles)

I'm no Coldplay fan, I did like a few of their "old" songs, and brought X&Y. (Now I just Put it in the CD player and skip to track 5)
(back on topic)

With Coldplay, I tend to only listen to the released songs (X&Y i'm talking about) So I find myself only using the CD for 3 compared with U2 (I dont know if its just because I am a U2 fan) but eventually, (Achtung Baby, Pop, JT all eventually grew on me) HTDAAB I feel over instantly, loved every track (and still do)

X&Y just wont grow on me.

I liked Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head is one of my favorite albums. But I just can't get into X&Y for some reason. I tried listening to it again recently, and I still thought it sucked.

To me X&Y is there best album. A Rush of Blood to the Head and Parachutes are good but not as good as X&Y. I agree with you CJ, there lyrics are starting to drive me crazy because they make absolutley no sense.

A rush of blood is their best album. X&Y was a huge disappointment

It doesn't bother me too much that some of the lyrics are pretty random. U2 has written some pretty shitty lyrics at times, so have The Beatles...ect.

As for X&Y, I loved it when I first got it. Then I had a real love/hate relationship with it. Now, I have a whole new respect for X&Y after seeing Coldplay live in Chicago last week. In fact, I really hated "White Shadows" before hearing it live. Now I love it.

The new songs sounded fantastic live--many of them sounding much much better than they sound on the album(White Shadows, What If, Fix You). Talk was awesome---don't let the shitty performance on the Grammy's taint your opinion of this song.

Square One was amazing. One of the best songs of the decade in my opinion.

Coldplay's grammys performance was flat out awful. They sounded like absolute crap. I still like the song Talk a lot, but that performance contributed to me not liking them as much as I used to.

Just for your amusement:

Chris Martin's band was giving a private concert for winners of a contest sponsored by radio station WPLJ, when he was asked about the competition between Coldplay's "X&Y" and Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" for biggest-selling album of 2005. When WPLJ reporter Brad Blanks asked Martin how he felt about having Mariah on his tail, he replied: "She's not, but one of her boobs is. They do most of her work. Last week I was chased down the street by an enormous boob. I think it was hers."

Martin even made up a song on the spot, sitting at his keyboard: "Man's been traveling through space and man's been to the moon and man's spent most of his intelligence desiring Mariah Carey boobs."

As the crowd laughed, he continued: "Mariah Carey's boobs are so nice, and she don't mess around. If she had been aboard the Titanic, there's no way that ship would have gone down."
