Default coldplay - parachutes

with all the chatter about their new album i was talking about it with a friend and talking about how they've been pretty mediocre since parachutes. so i was listening to it again on the way back to my apartment and for the sound it was going for, it's reaally good. i know coldplay has slowly hit the crapper ever since, but whats the board's opinion on their first record? do you like it or not?

sorry this isnt about a noise rock

if we're just judging it on what it is, which is bland modern radio rock for pussies, then yeah it's pretty good at achieving that (trouble and don't panic are both pretty good songs)

I love Parachutes, but if anything, "A Rush of Blood to the Head" is a fantastic album, even better than Parachutes as a whole. "X&Y" definitely was a misstep, but the few tracks I've heard so far on "Vida La Vida" have been pretty damn good.

Yeah, I like Parachutes a lot. I think it's a bit more mature than Rush of Blood although I go for that as their best also. X & Y had three or four REALLY good songs and the rest were pretty bland... I like Violet Hill a lot, so maybe Viva La Vida will be good. Who knows.

But yeah. Parachutes. Yeah.

I like it, but I can only get through six or seven of the songs before I have to put on something else. Coming up on shuffle or something, all the songs by themselves are fine. I like the Blue Room EP too but not much after that.
