2002 sophomore album from the British Pop/Rockers led by singer, songwriter and pianist Chris Martin. Includes the massive hit singles 'Clocks' and 'The Scientist'.
Coldplay required a lifetime to make their wonderfully assured debut, Parachutes. But it took less than two years for the moody British quartet to deliver a masterful follow-up. As a band, Coldplay have advanced to a stage where they outshine nearly every one of their rivals in terms of imagination and emotional pull. A Rush of Blood to the Head is a soulful, exhilarating journey, moving from the cathartic rock of "Politik" to the hushed tones of "Green Eyes" without once breaking its mesmerizing spell. Singer Chris Martin takes his voice on soaring flights, reaching places only Jeff Buckley previously dared to go. And the music is nearly flawless, a persuasive cross between Pink Floyd and the Verve. Even if they haven't come up with another "Yellow," you would be hard-pressed to care. This is exquisite stuff. --Aidin VaziriSee all Editorial Reviews

everything except, perhaps, "A Whisper"
Whoa, what a mistake, or, perhaps, a blessing for my many other CD's since this album has infected me. Two listenings a day. How did this pleasant band produce this amazing album? Were they kidnapped? Did they encounter a higher creative power? I am floored. 'Clocks', 'Daylight', 'A Whisper'... who is this band?
Only one clinker in the batch, the country-inspired "Greeneyes." But one caress of the up button and we're happy to gently brush that small, and I mean small, green worm away from this plump glistening luscious apple.
Oh,I am in lust. I filed Coldplay somewhere below Doves, Goldfrappe, Grandaddy, yeah, I filed them under pleasant and spun "Parachutes" once in a while. Now they do this to my aching brain. Sneaky lads!
Come join the addiction. Just don't tell me the heartbreakingly beautful break in 'Amsterdam' doesn't send a tingle up into your soul. I won't listen, cause my ears are weeping.
Pure alchemy. How wonderful in these times of musical lead.
If you appreciate a band that takes it's music very seriously (Turned down $85Mil from The Gap to commercialize their music, Bravo!) and does exactly what great music is supposed to do- get every emotion in your body going- then buy this CD immediately.
In these "lowest" days of souless music where everything is over-marketed, over-promoted, and pushed to the masses by MTV it is great to have some new music that matters.
Take a listen Boy Bands, Brintney Spears, Creed, and all Hip-Hop players- this is a band that cares about what it is doing and understands it's importnace. You'll be listening to them long-after you've burned out and are sitting around on your millions wondering why no one wants to hear from you anymore.
