I've heard bits of "X&Y", because it's the current inescapable shove-down-your-throat album on all the corporate outlets in the states 'round these parts.

It was a nice album.

When it was called "The Bends".

And when it was done by Radiohead.

In the mid 1990s.

Yes, that's a bit of hyperbole. But the fact is that for all the hype of "X&Y" being this groundshaking release that would reshape pop music and whatever else Coldplay and their handlers said about it, it's just another bland, inoffensive, safe piece of work that follows in long-cold footsteps already trod by others with more creativity and imagination years before. So I'm sure it'll sell MILLIONS of copies to people with no real taste who don't know better.
