5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent release Dec 24 2003
By J
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1999 before they even had released a proper debut LP, "The Blue Room EP" shows a young band with truly great potential (which they would later capitalize on with Parachutes and Rush of Blood). The first of the five tracks, 'Bigger Stronger' burns with some guitar fire and some uplifting vocals. Track 2 'Don't Panic' is the same song that would later be on Parachutes but in a slightly different form. Still, it's a great song. The first of the two real highlights is the next song, which is entitled 'See You Soon'. Simply put, this is one of the most beautiful songs that Coldplay have ever written. It can compete with any album track they have and when you stumble across it here on this little-owned EP you really feel like you have found a rare gem. It features little more than vocals, an acoustic guitar and some organ. It also has some interesting lyrics. This is one one of those types of songs that makes it worth it to buy an entire album. Next is 'High Speed'which is in the exact same form as it is on Parachutes. The closer 'Such A Rush' is the other highlight of this too-short EP. It wanders on slowly and dirge-like for it's first two minutes and it seems to be made of not much. But then it begins to build and build and then it explodes in a wonderful haze of emotion.
A great purchase, you can't go wrong with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Companion Piece to "Parachutes" Feb. 2 2001
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled onto "The Blue Room EP" after diving into Coldplay's mind-blowing debut album "Parachutes". This EP was recorded in summer of 99 and released a few months later. This EP contains 5 songs and runs 20 min. I suspect that most of you, as did I, will listen to this after having fallen for "Parachutes".
The EP starts off with its strongest song, "Bigger Stronger", which has all the elements of why "Parachutes" would be the best "new" album of 2001 (it was released in Nov. 2000): great melody, smart lyrics, and that hard to resist lead vocal.
Track 2 is "Don't Panic", which is also featured on "Parachutes", but here on the EP in a different, cleary earlier version: the intro is a fascinating mumble of guitars, which is not found on the album (where it is the lead off track); it also comes in a different guitar orchestration. Track 4 is "High Speed", which is featured "as is" on the album, the only track from the EP to make it onto the album without any changes.
Track 3, "See You Soon", is a charmingly, soft-ridden track. Track 5, "Such a Rush" starts off very gently but eventually builds up to an outburst of the band's instuments. It is the best song after "Bigger Stronger"
If you like "Parachutes", by all means BUY THIS

"The Blue Room" EP can also be called Coldplay's third, not second EP, as some people might think (Brothers & Sisters and Safety were the first). Secondly, this is probably one of the best CD's that Coldplay have made so far. Don't get me wrong, Parachutes was just as good. But I had just one disappointment. See, I just got into Coldplay about a year ago, and then I discovered this EP, heard some sample songs, and thought "WOW! I want to get this one!". But, there was a problem. This is an extremely limited edition EP that came out in 1999 and it is hard to find now. Even if you do find it, it costs a lot of money (Anywhere from $70 to $90). I think that that is the only real disappiontment about this EP. They should re-realase it here in the US. They need to make more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars short, but VERY sweet Aug. 19 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Why are you reading reviews? You should have already ordered this passionate and creative EP by Coldplay, a prequel to it's longer sibling, Parachutes. I reccomend buying Parachutes first, however, but once you have, and aquired a taste for their natural, comforting style, the blue room EP is a must get. Parachutes is more polished, high-fidelity recording, with more emphasis on the making of a solid, popular album, whereas the blue room EP is lo-fi, spontaneous, somewhat deeper, though I don't mean to diminish the beauty and depth of Parachutes in any way. Track 2 on the EP, which appears as track one on parachutes is sheer poetry. Simple, inspired by the beauty and mortality of Earth, it is the one song which I come back to every day and listen to out of a CD collection in the 500s.
