Christ, this thread is pathetic.

"Coldplay are shit.", "Well they're not all bad", "You're a fucking loser, then."

Fucking grow up!

Anyway, to get back to one of the few interesting comments before this degenerated into an adolescent cooler-than-thou dirty protest, for what it's worth I think they sound a lot like Echo & The Bunnymen too (shiny-production Porcupine era). I think a lot of that's got to do with Chris Martin's voice. Hearing the first single off the album on the radio at work about four times a day made me yawn at first, then I actually got into it, then I just got fed up with it: Much as I've felt about all their output really. I really don't like their appropriation of Kraftwerk's 'Computer Love' either. It sounds like a hamfisted joke rather than a homage. But there are some interesting little twists on the rest of the album, but not enough to keep me interested in more than a mildy curious way really.

Anyway, I can't wait to hear the Crazy Frog album. It's bound to be much better.
