More than a month after x&y is released, and I am underwhelmed.

really.
I gave it alot of chances.
but it's just so obvious, and ultimately boring.
speed of sound is just too much like clocks for me.
fix you is too much like the scientist for me.
white shadows is on unforgettable fire, right?
etc. etc.

maybe without all the hype surrounding it it would be tolerable, but man....just so underwhelming.


it's like a song like fix you could've been huge, but those lyrics.....see, you walk a fine line with a song like that; u2 could've pulled it off because the lyrics probably would've been better (although in the last 5 years their lyrics have sometimes been crap also).

"when you lose something you can't replace"

it's one step away from a bon jovi power ballad.


anyways, dissappointed.

Such a shame, I held them in the highest regard. They got lazy.

As per the guidelines of the forum, if you don't like a thread's topic don't come into it and sledge it, rather go and make an appreciation topic.

I dont, at all.

Why did we need yet another thread on this?

I think so, although, in my book that doesn't make it bad, it's one of my favourites on the album.

I feel like my thread is different.

here's why:

when the album came out, there was instant backlash, and there was instant praise. fights broke out, discussions turned ugly, and cats began sleeping with dogs.

so I took a step back.

I listened to the album. listened again. again. (you get the idea).


so now after a month of giving it a chance, I've decided to give my opinion on a hottly debated topic.
if you don't like the topic, don't respond and this thread will quickly be forgotten.

I'm not saying the platinumness gives it any merit. I'm saying it's a nice piece of trivia.

I couldn't care less how many records they sell.

I think the infinitely better Rush Of Blood already has that covered.

I wish they were still just like one of my little bands from the Parachutes days, but what are you gonna do? I'd prefer them to not sell many records at all, but they do, so I live with it.

Anyways, back on topic time. I was just throwing the double platinum thing out there because I just read it.

Jeez, what has Coldplay done to you for you to have such an adament dislike for them? Has Chris come by and kicked your dog?

JOFO, you may want to check out this thread:

http://forum.interference.com/t130086.html


So it's been a while since it was released and you want to talk about it. Find one of the bazillion Coldplay threads already in existence and get to it. Those of us talking about the latest Tori Amos album and tour have been using the same thread for months. You can do it too.

Please stop bashing a person just because he makes a perfectly legitimate thread about how he feels after having listened to a certain album....
