bought The passengers today! plus Radiohead's The bends and Coldplay's Parachutes

i couldn't believe it when i saw the Passengers next to U2's albums in the store. the last time i checked, the store didn't have the album. so i grabbed it immediately, of course.

my opinion? hmmmmm....kind of Zooropa meets MDH sound meets a touch of Pop. i kinda have to chew on it, but so far:
- i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Your blue room (so tranquil and peaceful)
- i like Slug (especially after Bono starts to sing)
- Miss Sarajevo
- Elvis ate America (Bono's voice cracked me up lol)
- Theme from Let's go native (because it's so bouncy)

Bends from Radiohead? Gotta chew on it some more too. Stand out songs so far High&dry and Street spirit.

Coldplay: Parachutes. I like it a lot. Fresh, original sound-a mixture between pop and rock. I would dare to say most U2 fans would like the album. So far my favorite songs are: Yellow (the big hit), Don't panic, Shiver.

ps: I forgot to mention the guitar player from Coldplay. Very original, something about his style reminds me of Edge, yet he has his own touch. Check 'em out!

BTW, you really shouldn't chew on your cds. They might not work anymore if you keep doing that.

ummmm, yes, they're sort of crunchy, but they taste really sucky!

ps: Was considering buying DM's Exciter. I saw the video for Freelove recently and i do like the song, along with Dream on. oh well, maybe next time...

pps: wooo, Always forever now and Beach sequence aren't too bad either.

Go back and give another listen to Fake Plastic Trees. That song is so incredible--it literally makes you want to cry when you hear it sometimes.

Damn you bought all the cd's I've been meaning to get. No joke, I just haven't bought them yet cause I'm afraid of the kinda of damage I'll do to my bank account if I step into a record store.

I've been downloading a lot of Coldplay's songs OH MY GOSH, Shiver is unbelievable. I also have a lot of the mp3's to the bends another great album, yes go listen to fake plastic trees again, amazing.

Anyway I have Exciter from Depeche Mode and I love the record backwards and forwards. They singles you've probably heard of just scratch the surface. It's a great record. I love Breathe, When the Body Speaks, and Dead of Night to mention some of the more obscure ones.

Argh, I need to get someone to buy me these records, I can not go near a record store much less shop online. I have no self-control.

you beat me to it Foxxern. Fake Plastic Trees is so completely incredible. Power, passion, beauty, sadness, dispair and more all wrapped up in there. The Bends is a classic album that shows how great Radiohead could have become. their releases after that point are a dissapointment to me, but that's just my opinion and I don't want to get into a big radiohead debate with anyone.

The Bends is amazing. It is the only Radiohead album I have but I am pretty sure it is their best. I have listened to OK Computer and I think I liked it less. Street Spirit, what an incredible song...among others.

I think I know why. While seeing them in concert, I realised that the guitarist (still don't know his name, the rest of the band is so anonymous) doesn't have the rockstar mentality i.e he doesn't flash around his skills like other crap guitarists do. He makes effort to blend in his lead guitar with the music, so much so that you almost don't hear the lead. I think he shares Edge's self-effacement that way.

They are all wicked Cd's
And I love some of the new DM stuff, like freelove, dream on, and I feel loved.

And I just downloaded some passengers songs, and I keep listening to Your Blue room, its addictive!!! I love Edge's guitar near the end of the song. And the lyrics are cool.

YES! Shiver is my favorite.

In case anyone is interested in Coldplay, i can only say go for it! If you liked the singles (Don't panic, Yellow, Shiver, Trouble) you will like the whole album as well. It has a lot of acoustic guitars and piano. The singer has an interesting voice: sort of raw, bluesy yet he ain't too bad in falsetto (WOW! at what he does with the falsetto on the last song).
