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.

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.

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.

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.

Damn EMI, this is the third recent EMI disc that I have purchased with Copy Controlled technology and will have to return (e.g. Doves-Some Cities, Gorillaz-Demon Days, Coldplay-X&Y). As a result of the copy protection, I cannot listen to it on my high-end CD/SACD player, without annoying clicking, crackling and pops (not unlike a dirty LP). My emmlabs CD transport has a Phillips CD/SACD transport mechanism, and the Calgary company assures me the problem is with these corrupted EMI discs. Unfortunately, amazon.ca does not disclose that these discs have CC protection and hence, do not meet the Phillips/Sony CD Redbook standards. (You will notice they do not have the CD logo on the packaging).
Thus, certain high-end CD players and low-end players (e.g. car stereos) are not able to play these discs without problems. Until EMI improves this, I hope you think twice about buying these corrupted discs. EMI SOME OF US DO LEGALLY USE YOUR DISCS AND WOULD LIKE TO ENJOY THEM WITH THE EXPECTED FLEXIBILITY OF USE !

I was hooked on Coldplay after I heard the song "Clocks" during the Brit Awards a couple of years ago. I then listened to the Rush Of Blood and Parachutes. In my opinion, Parachutes had more solid song structure, but the Rush of Blood had more better singles. X&Y on the other hand is something on entirely new level. The songs are catchy and very pleasant. "Square One" is a great opener and the album sounds really well-polished all the way to the last hidden track of "Til Kingdom Come".
When you get your copy keep in mind these songs:
Square One,
What If? (X&Y's version of Trouble),
White Shadows,
Talk,
A Message (X&Y's version of Parachuts and Yellow mixed together), and, surely,
Fix You (most touching lyrics in the whole album)
because then you will have to listen to the whole album again just to realize what a magical piece of work this is.
