In addition to this version of the "Clocks" single, I also purchased "The Scientist" (Canadian) and "In My Place" (Canadian). Hands down, this is the best single of the three. In addition to the stellar first track "Clocks" (in a radio edited version here), the b-sides and live tracks make this one a worthwhile purchase.
"Crest Of Waves" and "Animals" sound very similar to the rest of the tracks on "A Rush Of Blood," and could have easily been included on the album. "Crest" is a mid-tempo track that sounds similar to "Green Eyes" (from the album). "Animals" is a bit slower, but I wouldn't quite call it a ballad--possibly more comparible to the title track "A Rush Of Blood To The Head."
The "live" version of "Yellow" is a very different rendition, almost unrecognizable if not for the lyrics. This track is Chris Martin solo at the piano on the famous Morning Becomes Eclectic show on KCRW. It is much slower and more melancholy than the familiar album version from "Parachutes," but still very pleasing.
The last track captures the energy of the band during their tour for the "Rush Of Blood" album. This "live" version of "In My Place" is from the MTV UK Coldplay special, which finds the crowd singing along and the band sounding as good as ever. This single was also released in the UK with the b-sides, but without the live tracks. Pick up this version, as you will be happy to have the live versions of "Yellow" and "In My Place," too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Clocks - the longer single May 7 2004

I will not discuss the song Clocks, supposing that you have already heard it by now.
Crests of Waves and Animals capture Coldplay wearing their Echo & The Bunnymen influence on their sleeves. And their inclusion onto A Rush of Blood To The Head would have added some much-needed diversity since they are both far more bouyant than most of the album's songs.
The live recording of Yellow, strangely enough, doesn't seem to have an audience. It's just Chris Martin singing along with his piano, nothing else. I myself prefer the full band version.
The live recording of In My Place is a little on the messy side when it comes to mixing. Martin's voice gets a little off-key at times and the crowd, at one point in the beginning, becomes louder than the band. Aside from those details, it sounds just like the album version.

crests of waves is the perfect example of why i like coldplay. it's an interesting song and still a nice pop song (not too different but different enough while not taking anything away from the great flow of the song but adding to it (for me)). it's not amazing but it's really good and very rare these days. i'd have to say it's my favorite of all coldplay b-sides and probably in my top 10 of all of their songs. another note is that the new coldplay album has some songs with more of an electronic song style. like clocks with the simple piano line over and over with the simple loop-like drum beat. and i think those songs usually aren't as good as the more standardish rock songs (ex. in my place). but crests of waves isn't like those electronic-type ones and that's a plus for me.
