In 1998, Coldplay was toiling away in London pubs when they got noticed by someone from Fierce Panda Records, which offered the band a one single release contract. In March 1999 the label released this 3 track single, which immediately attracked great buzz, leading to a bidding war among bigger labels and some months later the band signed a "major label" deal with Capitol.
"Brothers & Sisters" (3 tracks; 11 min.) is a fascinating look into early-Coldplay. The title track is quite good, and the band later re-recorded the track as a B side for the "Trouble" single in 2000. "Easy to Please" is a dreamy track, with Chris Martin crooning away over sparse instruments. "Only Superstition" finds the band rocking harder, a nice track.
In all, a very welcome re-release of Coldplay's earliest recording. Definitely highly recommended for those of you who (like me) are charmed by the "Parachutes" sound.

.....who are waiting for their 3rd album. I stumbled across this last night at the store, and it has Coldplay's early work. The first track, 'Brothers and Sisters,' is wonderful, and so is 'Only Superstition,' but I loved 'Easy to Please.' It's a dreamy Parachutes-like song. The piano is such a beautiful addition to the song. It makes you leave whatever troubles you and go into Coldplay's world, led by Chris' soft trance-like voice. The song, and the other two songs, are gems. A must for any true Coldplay fan.

This is great! A great 3rd album to buy as a Coldplay fan. Nov. 7 2004
By S. Enos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Parachutes and A Rush of Blood TO THe Head. I picked this up off Amazon.com used for a few bucks, and it was well worth the money for 3 short songs.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS: 8.7/10

A wonderful song...but sadly, with a very irritating beginning. WHY, Coldplay? It seriously wasn't necessary? All in all, though, it has awesome lyrics and Chris Martin's voice is as great as ever.

EASY TO PLEASE: 9.5/10

Now THIS is the highlight of the compilation! It has dreamy guitar and piano accompanied by eerie inaudible voices in the background. This should've been a bonus track on a Parachutes collector's edition. My only complaint(s)? Make it longer, and include it on PARACHUTES! C'mon, it deserves it! This is FANTASTIC!

ONLY SUPERSTITION: 8.8/10

Some part of a rocker and a good finale, even though Easy To Please would be better as one. I love the guitar and drums. The lyrics aren't THAT special, but still good. This doesn't sound that much like Coldplay. This is GREAT.

AVERAGE-9/10 *****

THis is an awesome look into Coldplay's early years (1999). And ya know, it's worth the money. Pick it up used...or if you're a die-hard fan, get it new...anyway, you'll be happy you did. As I said, this is a good 3rd album to get.

New to Coldplay? Get their CDs in this order:

1-Parachutes

2-A Rush of Blood to the Head

3-Brothers and Sisters

4-Live 2003

5-God Put A Smile Upon Your Face (IMPORT)

7-Sparks, Don't Panic, Shiver, Clocks, or any of their other lesser singles and imports. (Get em' all at Amazon)

Just thought I'd stick that in there. Anyway, enjoy!

Fantastic find at a great price Oct. 1 2000
By dru_p@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My oh my, what a find. This fantastic single heralds a new band into the wonderful world of british music. A great find. The price I paid is way too much when I look at how much this one costs. Regrets. In any case, that's in that past, what can you look forward to with this cd? Great music is a start. The lead singer has a fantastic voice; he sounds a bit like Jeff Buckley, but he has a Nick Drake feel to him, at least I think so. The band perform marvelously, the music, it just grabs you and sticks in your mind for days on end. Listen to it and tell me you don't hum track 3 over and over at night. What else? Well, when Coldplay does hit it big here in North America, which will be soon, trust me, won't it be nice to show all your friends this massively rare CD? Listen, enjoy, it is worth your time and money.

The "Brothers & Sisters EP" is Coldplay's hidden treasure th Feb. 13 2005
By Summer J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Brothers & Sisters + Good Television"

Only now, has the U.S. received the sweet taste of a younger Coldplay circa 1999. You are probably wondering, "How does this relate to the TV heading mentioned above?" Well, in 2002, I bought the Roswell (Original Soundtrack)and Coldplay's "Brothers & Sisters" song was featured. After constantly replaying the song, I bought the EP. To my suprise, it was one of the best Ep's I have ever listened to.

Here is how I rate the three songs:

Brothers & Sisters: 9.8/10

Easy to Please: 9.0/10

Only Superstition: 8.0/10

If you are interested in other great music, listen to the Roswell (Original Soundtrack, Garden State Soundtrack, and Travis.
