3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 Stars actually, due to great B-sides April 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
(A side: 3 stars; B sides: 4 stars)
This is the second single from "Rush of Blood to the Head". "The Scientist" is the A side, a mid-tempo piano-driven ballad. As a song, it doesn't do all that much for me, I thought it to be one of the lesser tracks on the album. (Check out the incredible video, though...)
The B sides are far more interesting. "1:36" (which actually lasts 2:02) is one of the hardest rocking tracks ever from Coldplay, and Coldplay has performed it regularly at gigs. It starts off with a heavy guitar riff which continues throughout the song. I found it instantly recognizable, but it took me a while to place it: it is the EXACT same riff as the title track of AC/DC's "Ballbreaker", check it out!
"I ran away" is also a mid-tempo song (guitar-driven, though), and in my opinion a much better song than "The Scientist". In all, Coldplay has released better singles, but "1:36" is the curiosity that will make Coldplay fans seek out this single.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark yet sweet; Romantic yet mysterious... Nov. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Scientist was an excellent choice as a single release from Coldplay's 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head'. Who hasn't had a relationship where logic and reason fought with sentiment and heart?
Lead singer Chris Martin declares a singular truth in "Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said it would be this hard..."
The Single/EP version is the edit -- a radio cut that loses the piano intro (and sadly is the poorer for it.) Still, it's a fabulous song and worth owning the CD for all by itself.
However, you won't want to miss out on hearing the two added (heretofore unreleased) B-Sides, 1.36 and I Ran Away. The former is a hotter, more rocking piece than you'd usually hear from Coldplay, owing its roots to Ash frontman Tim Wheeler who provides additional guitar for this piece. But the final number (I Ran Away) is the stand-out song on this CD. According to Chris Martin, this one nearly made it on "Rush of Blood". It's recognizably Coldplay while taking their sound in a slightly different direction that's appealing enough you have to follow. It's one of those songs that gets in your head. Lamenting how fear drove him from a love open to him, he declares, "Everyone I know says I'm a fool to let you be. Everyone I know says it's a stupid thing to do." We can't help but relate. Great guitar too. Jon Buckland is definitely the next David Gilmour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stil Melodic And Counting June 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is no doubt about the music of Coldplay. Since they came out of the music industry in the late 90's, they've taken on America by storm. Their songs are also setting that pace fully. Their latest single, The Scientist, is a much more laid back and a mature single than their first single from Parachutes. The video for this song is absolutely dynamic, reflecting a incident in reverse, which shouldn't be what people think of Coldplay. The song is beautiful, but it is just a shame that people aren't playing the video for this song. If you're a fan of Coldplay, I suggest you get this single or A Rush Of Blood To The Head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow June 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who thinks "The Scientist" is not one of the greatest songs Coldplay has ever produced is a few cans short of a 6 pack. The song is beautifully crafted and the raw emotion in Martin's voice is almost heartbreaking. Furthermore, considering Martin himself stated that he could die happy after creating this song, if you do not like this song, maybe you don't know what Coldplay is all about it and should go listen to some TRL music kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing !! March 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Scientist (besides In My Place), is one of the standout tracks of A Rush Of Blood. So it is only fitting that it recieves it's own single. The best song on this album however, is I Ran Away. The track is gorgeous. It was not released worldwide, though it should have been. It is easily one of the best Coldplay songs so far, and I am a huge fan of all Coldplay songs. If you love Coldplay you must get this song as soon as possible!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Chore to Sit Through! June 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This song, "The Scientist", is terrible! Coldplay are the kind of band that everyone can just go on and on about how great and brilliant they are, but I just don't agree. Coldplay are boring, dull, conventional, and their music doesn't go anywhere. It doesn't really capture you and make you want to continue listening. I found this to be the most boring of their songs on Rush of Blood to the Head. Very very overrated band!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Ran Away Oct. 8 2003
By Zack
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD in August because I wanted to hear the unreleased songs that weren't on "A Rush of Blood to the Head." I was pleasantly surprised. 1.36 is definately a departure from Coldpaly's norm, much more rock-like than their other stuff, but the greatness here lies in "I Ran Away," which in my opinion, would have been great as a 12th song on "A Rush..." A must for any and all Coldplay fans.

1.36 is a strange little song, but not bad. Chris' vocals sound pretty weird on it. But the real gem here is "I Ran Away," which is a really great song. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch song.
Now, I don't normally like British people. Their accent annoys me, but Coldplay are very cool British people. This song rules. The video kind of makes me think, how did he do that? Read more
