No offense taken. I'm quite happy I know how to turn off the tv or the radio when something I don't care to watch or hear comes on (or flip past an article I don't want to read). If that makes me pretentions, that's just fine. Far better than whining about how much you hate hearing or seeing something when you can turn the fucking machine off.


(by the way, I'm an indie snob too. )

I'm sick of the hype. Sick of everything to do with this shitawful fucking average band.


Have I told you lately that I love you?

Van Morrison, actually.

I think I'm going to get inspired to start a Van thread.

Yes well Rod Stewart is the Coldplay of his genre, so I thought it was fitting

Not sick of Coldplay themselves, no. I watch VH1 Classic on a regular basis, don't watch the regular VH1 channel often anymore, so I don't really see or hear a lot about them. And I don't know a lot about them as a band. I just know the few songs I occasionally hear on the radio or some of the Music Choice channels I listen to, all of which I've never really minded all that much. Nice relaxing stuff.

No, I'm just a bit tired of the constant arguing regarding them and whether or not they sound like U2. Everybody should just like whatever is appealing to them right now and just remember that any thoughts on who's better than who out of the two or who has better songs/lyrics/whatever are subjective, not objective.

All that said, however, perhaps I shall take indra's advice .

It's a brilliant album...tracks 1.2.3.5.6.10.11 are very classy.....close to a 5 star effort...at least 4....just brilliant craftsmanship to make the sound they are making.

Coldplay are deserving of many accolades, X&Y isn't progressive but it IS different for Coldplay. The main reason people think Coldplay are sounding the same is probably because Martin's vocal is kind of limited in it's scope to sound different. Not his fault just the way his voice is.

Like to hear him growl or something on the next album.

But I do think there is too much hype, both negative and positive. I mean where's the hype about the new Oasis album? Arguably a better band.

Even so, I'm sick of having to defend a band that is making the music they want to make and are actually having some appeal to a world that is seemingly obsessed with modern punk, rap, rnb and idol winners and runners up and 6th placers. Just down to earth musicians they are, they haven't done anything bad so let them do what they want to...

At least the publicity has kept the white stripes out of the spotlight though...

So all this doesn't add up, but...I'M REALLY SICK OF COLDPLAY!!!

They're on the cover of every blasted magazine, MTV and VH1 play the Speed of Sound video approximatley 23868.49 times a day, and it seems like everyone ever is like "OMG COLDPLAY!!!!!?!?!?!?1?213LOLZ?"

You must hate U2 when they release a new record. They manage to get themselves 'all over the place' as well.

Ah... Motown song! What a great video too! mmmm... 1992...


edit: Oh and I don't see the need to argue over either band, U2 or Coldplay. As Angela (Moonlit Angel) said...

IT'S ALL SUBJECTIVE, PEOPLE!!!

"IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO POST IN AN EXISTING THREAD THAN TO START A NEW ONE."

I'm so sick of seeing Coldplay threads, even if they're the good anti-Coldplay kind! Those four little naffs are everywhere I go! I turn on Much Music, the video for Speed of Sound is on. I scream in anguish, and flip over to Much More Music and the video for Speed of Sound is on. I wail, and turn the TV off. I pick up the latest magazine, and guess who's in the bloody thing? Coldplay. So I fling it away and come to Interference. What's one of the first threads I see? ANOTHER BLOODY COLDPLAY THREAD!

Again, I ask - why won't someone make it stop?

I don't know Gibby. That's just what happens when a huge album is released. It will pass soon enough I'm sure.
