ConsI'm waiting too long for the next album.

Forgive me for sounding like a new disciple of the Coldplay Clan, but I really can't help it! I had been waiting for someone, anyone, to bring out some music that really meant something to me. I'm not one of those people who memorise the names of band members or can tell you the intrinsic musical...

ProGreat vocals and melodys

ConsBit short

Winner of Best Album at the Brits and various other awards, this album caused a fair stir in the year 2000 and 2001. But is it that good? Yes, it bloody well is, don't be so damn negative! Now sit back and relax while I take you through the album. Don't Panic is a sublime opening track, with a...

ProGreat album, fantastic group

ConsNone

Being a fan of Coldplay (mainly thanks to "Green Eyes") I just had to snap this bargain up when I saw it for £2.98 in the Amazon.co.uk January 2009 sale. The album is fairly short with only 10 songs but below I will rate each song individually and rate it out of 10. Don't Panic: This is a great...

ConsOverplayed on the Radio at the time

It's tough to review an album that you have listened to for over a decade, as the songs are so ingrained in your soul that it is tricky to see them for what they are instead of the feelings they evoke inside of you. This is the case with Parachutes, the debut album from Coldplay, which I remember...

ProFantastic debut

ConsCan be dull and boring at times

"We live in a beautiful world." With these words, the debut no.1 album from Coldplay opens. The line is very typical of the band's genre; Travis influenced acoustic-guitar player with whiney voices and almost pessimistic lyrics. This is, however, in no way a bad thing, and from an overload of...

It was back in 2000 when Coldplay started to make a name for themselves. The debut single “Yellow” was being overplayed to death on the radio and TV and I found it was really starting to grate. It got so bad in fact that I put off buying the album deciding that Coldplay weren’t really worth...

Prosubtle, intelligent, flowing

Consdon't be silly!

Coldplay, the best British band of the new outburst of talent in this country met at University. They based the band on friendship and their album 'Parachutes' reflects a mature and musically able group that aren't afraid to write songs that they enjoy playing. Coldplay aren't up their own rear...

Let's be honest. Many a time we've always thought about what could have been accomplished, what could have been gained...just if we had only gone through with what was lurking in the back of our mind instead of listening to the authorities and naysayers who told us it couldn't be done or it...

“WOEFULLY GOOD”

published 08/11/2001

Proquality not quantity(at last)

Constoo short for some

I was tempted to buy this album as I had heard the single "trouble" sounded different I thought so gave in to my temptation.And im happy to say i have been rewarded.For at least the last ten years, to do well in this musical field, you had to be a goodlooking celeb, not a musician. You had to be...

“Coldplay Parachutes,”

published 14/03/2013

ProSoothing, emotional, very good lyrics

Conscan get repetitive

You are bound to have heard a Coldplay song these past few years at least once and why not, the band is quite amazing and their songs suit all! The debut album, Parachutes, is very Brit pop and once you listen o it you directly get the feel of their influences mainly U2 and some soulful Dave...

On first hearing, I wasn't so sure about whether or not Coldplay were the brilliant band that the music press had led me to believe, although when I listen to the album now I am not sure why I felt this way. I think it may be that I was less than astounded by their breakthrough single, Yellow...

ProSome really good lyrics

ConsSome really plodding music

As you can see from the title of this exorcism of the myth that surrounds the band that call themselves Coldplay, I really do not understand WHAT THE FUSS IS ABOUT!!! Coldplay are most certainly NOT the saviours of rock music - they are quiet indie-lite tunesmiths who, occasionally, can produce...

Music with space and time to breathe, at last a new band who don`t jump on the mass produced band wagon. Nice guitar work contrasting and combining acoustic and electric guitar ,effective keyboard work, sensitive and diverse drumming and what a distinctive voice..wow Complex time signatures too...

“Coldplay Music of Excellence”

published 11/08/2001

ProOriginal and creative

Consnot Hearsay

This album was a bored lunchtime purchase, I’d heard a couple of tracks on the radio over a period of months, heard a bit about the band, but knew (and still know) little about them. Well since that lunchtime me and the lads from Coldplay have become pretty well acquainted on the old HiFi...
