Our Review

Coldplay first attained worldwide success on the strength of their memorable romantic-dream pop - the classic "Yellow," from its Parachute debut being just one gleaming example. By the time of its third album, X&Y, the band had grown to such ridiculous commercial heights that it could easily have stuck to earlier formulas without risking or adding anything new. Yet Coldplay explores a lot of new territory here, referencing everyone from Kraftwerk to Radiohead. The opener "Square One" launches things with sweeping notes before the drums skitter into a simmering beat and the melody builds to majestic heights. The cinematic scope of "Low" incorporates layers of ringing guitars, lush arrangements, and intricate, mesmerizing melodies, while "Talk" pays homage to '70s Kraut-rock. And then, of course, there's "Speed of Sound," simply the latest in a string of massive hits that have made Coldplay one of this decade's few new arena-worthy bands.

Customer Reviews

Good album (5 stars)
Overall this is probably Coldplay's best album. A Rush of Blood to the Head has their best songs, but X&Y is better start to finish. It has better instrumentation and melodies, and is less dependent on Martin's vocals alone. Overall, a must have.

Love it! (5 stars)
One of the best albums I downloaded this year. Couldn't be better! The music is just great to listen to while getting work done. I highly reccomend it! :-)

X&Y (5 stars)
X&Y is different. Coldplay took a very different route on this album. To be completely honest I hated this album the first time I heard it. It wasn't the Coldplay I knew. After some deep thinking and listening, I ended up changing my mind about the album. It is now my second favorite Coldplay album, having Parachutes be number 1. Everyone says this is an overproduced album. I think not! It is just a new style. Everyone likes to mix it up

Biography

Formed: 1998 in London, England
Genre: Alternative
Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

After surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest bands of the new millennium, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that landed the British quartet a near-permanent residence on record charts worldwide. The group's emergence was perfectly timed; Radiohead had just released the overly cerebral Kid A, while Oasis had ditched two founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants....
