X and Y


Even though Coldplay have a lot to live up to after their last album I dont think i can jump on the bandwagon and say that X and Y is the best thing ever and every time i hear Speed of Sound I stop what Im doing to sit and contemplate the musical goldust thats ringing in my ears, or something similar. The songs sound a little repetitive, a little depressing and at times like Im listening to the muffled wailings of a suicidal choirboy. To be honest, Fix You became successful because everyone heard it first at Live 8 and has been getting continuous radio coverage. But, having said that, it is a clever song which shows Chris Martin's musical genius in its four key harmony as well as being the only song to feature all four members singing; other than that XandY is on my playlist, but only because, and solely because, its Coldplay and you just have to.

  2. Coldplay have very clever and well constructed songs and I can appreciate Chris Martin's genius, but they are all a bit depressing and similar. Why does everyone jump on the Coldplay bandwagon? And how could some people at Live8 compare them to the likes of the Floyd, who are as far as I'm concerned in a leage ouf their own altogether.
