    Hmm. It's okay, I guess but a pale shadow to The Bends and OK Computer for me. To be fair they've been soo overplayed here it's hard to have a nice objective view anymore. They're a good live band too but you just know they're never quite going to 'rawk' which takes a bit of the edge out of it. They do You Only Live Twice as an encore, however, and it's a really cool version.[​IMG]

    Very True...but comparing The bends and Ok Computer to Parachutes is like comparing the NFL to the CFL...Radioheads early stuff was just amazing...no comparison...Coldplay is more the type of band you would see live at a local bar...while your chillin with a few friends enjoying a Pint of ale...sort of like the Tragically Hip...but not as rockin

    Ryan, I love Coldplay. There isn't one song on Parachutes that I don't listen to. Love their sound!

    Theo, I would argue that Coldplay has been overplayed here as well. It's not a bad album, but I'd take the Doves' Lost Souls over Parachutes any day. You might want to check them out as well, Ryan.
    EDIT: I must take offense with you comparing Coldplay to The Hip. [​IMG]
