so searched and found this.
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=301945&highlight=new+coldplay+album

but its old.

I got it for fathers day for my dad and i ripped it to my mac and i like it. Its nice to change from metal all the time for some gentle melodies. but anyway. My fav tracks are, violet hill, viva la vida and strawberry swing.

Its gone multi platinum in 3 days and sold over 3million lol.

Anyone else like it ?

Chuck Klosterman said in one of his books (Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs) that Coldplay was a rip off of a band (can't remember the name) that is a rip off of Radiohead.

You have two degrees of separation right there.

i agree to a certain extent. But radiohead used loads of pink floyds techniques and moody blues.

But every story and idea is an altered version found in the bible.

The only other book in the world to have been published more than the bible is the IKEA catalogue.

I really hope you were being ironic. "Brutal" should never be used to describe Radiohead.

And this should go in the Coldplay thread (look in Modern Rock I'd guess).

From what I've listened to so far, its quite decent.
Violet Hill is a great tune.

coldplay is superior to radiohead in every way.
...because the last thing the world needs is another metal guitarist.

Me.

My band.

I like Fall Out Boy. I don't like you.

He said they were a mediocre photocopy of Travis who were themselves a mediocre photocopy of Radiohead. But he also admitted later in the book that his entire dislike of Coldplay was because a girl chose them over him, so I'm not sure this criticism is valid.

Coldplay is nothing like Radiohead..


edit: Travis is a great band too. Neither of them are ground breaking, but who cares?

Not syllable-wise. Ra-di-o-head totally kicks Cold-play's sorry two syllable ass.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

maybe read the first post.

I think radiohead are very good...and also coldplay.

Coldplay have a very powerful orchestral sound.

Radiohead is more distinctive and unique. radiohead are more experimental with equipment i think.

The most recent post in that thread was three hours ago.

Coldplay and Radiohead are really two completely different bands.

i agree with the guy above me...coldplay and radiohead aren't even similar in my mind. they're both great though and the new coldplay album from what i've heard so far is amazing.
nothing to see here
#23

Because you listen to Coldplay.

Yeah I remember reading that. He's a real intelligent guy and it's cool that he's really into sports too but he's so damn disorganized. Like he trails off the point too much and if someone who doesn't read on a regular basis read it they'd get lost on like every page.

Lets face it, every band is a rip-off of another band. If it weren't for Radiohead, then maybe there wouldn't be Coldplay - but this world is a lot better with them.

Also, I wouldn't say rip-off, I'd say inspired by.

Personally, I enjoy Coldplay more than Radiohead. They're one of the very few bands that I enjoyed 7 years ago that I still enjoy today.

I might buy the album simply because they used a Delacroix painting for the cover.

Nice. A thread meant to discuss the album turned into a NO THIS BAND IS BETTER thread.
Your opinions are rightfully yours. Don't force it on others by declaring who's the best.

Violet Hill is my favorite track in the album. All in all, it's good music. Slightly different from Parachutes. Nevertheless, good tunes.

I still prefer Parachutes though. What an album.
HI GUYS!
