4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but can get better June 16 2005
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard the album (after running out to get it as soon as it hit the shelves) I was really disappointed. They all sounded the same. Too much Chris Martin, not enough high intensity music. The lyrics seemed weak too.
BUT, I kept listening and my opinion has changed quite a bit. Some of the songs are very well written and interesting. Martin sounds good on it, and there is a lot of high paced urgency in it like in previous releases.
"The Hardest Part" is a beautiful song and has really grown on me.
"Swallowed in the Sea" is great, and a different sound.
"White Shadows" has great lyrics and music - I think its my favourite on the cd.
"What If" is destined to be a classic - maybe Coldplay's best ever.
Square One, X&Y and the rest are good - they are all good, and there is enough difference in each one to each to make them each specifically interesting.
I highly recommend this CD. I loved the first 2 from Coldplay, and if you did too, you will love this CD.
Fo r their next CD, I'd like to hear them mix it up more - try some things really new. This CD is a little too much for radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Coldplay album to date. June 2 2005
Format:Audio CD
This much anticipated album does not disapoint. Coldplay delivers another album with 13 awesome tracks. With rap music taking over the airwaves, Coldplay reminds us just what real music is with X&Y. If you liked their first single, Speed of Sound, you'll love evey other song. White Shadows has a much more upbeat tune, much like Clocks off their second album, A Rush Of Blood To The Head. Fix You and A Message are very mellow with the use of the accoustic guitar, while Speed Of Sound and The Hardest Part rely on the use of the piano. With Chris Martin's smooth voice bringing everything together, Coldplay can do no wrong. Although the piano is not present as much as in previous Coldplay albums, the sound is still overall better than Parachutes or A Rush Of Blood To The Head. No cd collection or iPod will be complete without this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing June 3 2005
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely amazing. Coldplay has made an amazing cd which mixes it's beautiful acoustic sound of Parachutes, and there paino smashing hits off a Rush of Blood to the Head to make one amazing cd. It's some what more "rockish" then the previous two albums, but still stays true to Coldplay's amazing song writing formula. Even if you aren't a Coldplay fan, you need to check this cd out. It will definatly be one of this years best.
Some of the highlights of this album are: What If, Fix You, Talk, X & Y, Swallowed by the Sea, and Twisted Logic.

3.0 out of 5 stars The first mild disapointment from coldplay Sept. 5 2005
Format:Audio CD
If Coldplay is generation Y's U2, that would mean "Rush of Blood to the Head" is its Joshua Tree. In turn that would mean that the next list of albums will turn out to be minor disapointments. It may also mean that due to Gen Y's short attention span, Coldplay will not last nearly as long, and have fewer good albums. It really is too bad, as they have taken over the artsy british rock crown from Radiohead.
Now, there are two kinds of fans who will buy this album. Those who want to listen to Coldplay, and Chris Martin lovers. I myself am a coldplay lover. Don't get me wrong, Chris Martin is the perfect vocalist for this band and without his piano work Coldplay wouldn't be what it is today. But the problem with this album is the focus is drifting too much on Chris Martin and not the music. Sure, its good for business to have a sex symbol being the main focus of a band, but the art will struggle because of it. Before, in Parachutes and Rush of Blood to the Head, there was a perfect balance between Coldplay and Chris Martin, between the Music and the Man. Now that balance has completely gone askew. It shows in the slower songs that a certain pretentiousness is arising, and a naivity that is far more blatant than before. I guess the thing that really bothers me is Chris Martin singing without any music, which to me seems silly, and very self-important in contrast to a good supporting cast.
3 stars, however, is not enough. I wanted to give it 3 1/2, but 4 would have been pushing it. Some of the music has amazing flows. The drumming is solid, and the guitar distortions are exceptionally effective. The lyrics, are very hit and miss. Some of them, are simply stunning. Others are extremely naive, or even pompous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coldplay : Mediocrity at its Best June 10 2005
By Ravnos
Format:Audio CD
For an admitted period of time, Coldplay have been one of the most influential and interesting bands of the time, their debut record 'Parachutes' was a breath of fresh air from the endly Radiohead, and Oasis impersonators that seemed to be permeating the genre. Listeners couldn't help but be swept up in the hype, were they the 'next big thing?' would they soon be challenging for position as 'biggest band in the world' ?
The answer in the last few albums has become rather resounding, while the music in itself is not poor, in fact it is quiet listenable, with nice tracks such as "Square One" and "What if?". With equally grand songs as "Square One" and "White Shadows" being played. The album has nice tempo changes, moving from a nice slow pace, to a more uptempo beat. However in all the machinations of the album, one cannot help but see how terrible formulaic the reality of composition is.
Coldplay has found a middle of the road that seems to work well for them, and is travelling it perfectly, the album while good in itself lacks any sort of experimentation, innovation, or change that generally sets apart a brilliant cd, from a merely mediocre album. The album is like the diet coke of albums, neither is it so horrible that one would pick it up and immedietly wish to throw it in the closest rubbish bin, yet it is startingly lacking in terms of actual artistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best work for me...
Their best album, every song except X&Y are amazing in both sound and lyrics. X&Y has great sound like the rest of them, but not as good lyrically for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Album, Vinyl Skipped, Returned
The one thing I thought was done well was the packaging and presentation of the vinyl. Not a huge fan of the band, found it boring. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Safe
This album plays it safe. It's good, but not great. It's major flaw is the fact that it follows the same idea as Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Coldplay Classic
These are some of the best songwriting I've heard from Coldplay. If you enjoy Keane, the Fray, this album is for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for copy controlled CDs
The album is great.
I just wish it had been made clear that this was a copy-controlled CD. That is, I can do nothing with it now (put it on my mp3 player etc). Read more

I have to say first that I found this CD no where in the league of their first 2 CD's which I would give 10 stars to Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head. Read more
