Top Customer Reviews
"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!
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.
