Default Coldplay

What does everyone here think of Coldplay.My opinion is that although they have some good songs (esp. Clocks which is great) they are a little overated.Its nothing new we are hearing and a lot of their stuff just does'nt do anything for me.

I don't know them realy, I've only heard their live version of A-ha's Hunting High and Low. I think they did a good job with it,nothing wrong with the original tho.

I really like them. I've been meaning to pick up Parachute and their new one. I like their hard rock sound...and I'm an old lady. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I'm with you Rocky, dont see what all the fuss is about really, i prefer Supergrass myself, quite different but I think they have a better sound. Dont like Coldplays lead singer either, dull is not the word for that man..(sorry to any coldplay fans!!)

Has there ever been a more overrated band than Coldplay? I think not. Their songs are limp and dreary but all the hipsters love them, especially the arts commentators in the Sunday broadsheets over here and mags like the NME. I can't stand Coldplay and the sooner they go away the better.

Actually Travis did a really nice tribute to George at the TOTP Awards with their version of 'Here Comes The Sun'. So thanks to Travis for that. [img]graemlins/sun.gif[/img]

I like Coldplay...no my friends LOVE them! I think "yellow" is a great song but I'm not that crazy over them. I would go see them in concert tho, I'm not usually impressed with a band these days unless they can rock it out live!!!

Oh, and I agree with whoever said that thing about U2, now I think THEY are overrated!

(no offense, to the U2 fans!)

Coldplay is alright. I like a lot of their songs, but I'm not "OMG they're so amazing" about them. I MUCH prefer Radiohead, who I'm sure many people think are overrated. Only thing is: they're not. I've seen them live, heard practically everything, and they are just fantastic. Thom Yorke has one of the most beautiful, affective voices for me. His voice does the same thing to me that John Lennon's does: its just chilling.

I could go on and on about Radiohead...actually I'm very "OMG they're amazing" for them. But Coldplay is cool (to divert back to the subject of the thread...)Just not my bag all the way. (But Yellow is just gorgeous...)

I love Coldplay a lot. I don't really find that they're overated here in The States at all. I have yet to see them in concert, but I'd love to! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
