For those who demand nothing less than perfection....,
This review is from: A Rush of Blood to the Head (Audio CD)
... Coldplay is your band! I became a fan rather late, I purchased Coldplay's debute album "Parachutes" only about four months ago, since that time the CD has gotten play at least twice daily at the office. It's brilliant, it's genius.. I didn't think they could do it again. I was wrong.
I tried to write up a proper review of this album for you, I think the RollingStone review does it justice, and I encourage you to check that review out if you want a critic's perspective. and honestly I can't say much, other than, once again we have melow-melodic-genius at work. The sound and production quality remain consistant with the first album, but more influences shine through this go round, the opening track starts out with a heavy piano riff letting you know you're own a new page. From then on, if you're an old fan or a new fan, the rest of the CD will dazzle you, never dull.
I see this album as a major milestone for Coldplay, although their catalog doesn't show it yet, you can listen and know they have surpased Radiohead, and other bands they were once compared to.
