Trollin4Colon: LewDux: Trollin4Colon: Its does has its uses but people take it too far and too seriously. It was something I was tired of putting up with when I got burnt out on electronic music only to realize metal fans are just as bad about it.Thou It in no way influences my like of the music

oontil I stop by a site like and reading their forums sends me in to a state of pissed off I was unaware existed and sometimes wonder

Did you call Portishead techno?

Never listened to em. I think Ive heard 1 or 2 songs by them and I dont know what the hell you would classify them as. I just remember it was a bit too out there for me.

You're missing out my friend. "Glory Box" is aural sex. Listen to it where you can get some respectable bass.

Paradise is an awesome song.

A bunch of their other stiff is great too

Coldplay isn't bad. Like Nickelback, it's benign, although it's far more listenable. If I am in the mood for music like that Coldplay, I'll just pop in some U2.

My mom will be disappointed by this announcement, though. She's definitely a fan.

Not a single fark was given....

chewy milk: Paradise is an awesome song.

Paradise is phenomenal, yes. So is Up In Flames, off the same album. If I had to make a list of my Top 10 Coldplay tracks, it would look like this:

1. In My Place
2. Violet Hill
3. Paradise
4. Up In Flames
5. The Scientist
6. Clocks
7. Fix You
8. Speed of Sound
9. Yes
10. Hurts Like Heaven

Like I said before, they're not for everyone, but on the grand scale of musicians, they're not down on the shiatty end with Justin Bieber and Britney Spears.

Like a couple of Coldplay songs (Violet Hill, Paradise, and to a lesser extent Cemeteries of London come to mind) though their ballads just sound really dreary. Can't drum up any real frothing hatred towards them any more than other run-of-the-mill top 40 radio band.

I can. For Talk. Direct lift of Kraftwerk's Computer Love. Don't care if they got permission or not - come up with your own f'ing songs you talentless hacks. That act alone has turned me off of Coldplay - permanently. It's just as reprehensible as Kenny G. defecating over old Louis Armstrong recordings with his meandering noodling.

It'll give them some time to come up with a new song to add to the three they've already released.

Not a fan of Coldplay but I wouldn't wish them death or anything. I just find their music really... vanilla and bland. Sort of the Mantovanni of British pop.

A lead singer who can't sing can be forgiven if he's playing incredibly complex riffs and solos like say, Dave Mustaine. I see no excuse for Chris Martin, or the spectacularly unimpressive band members.
2012-11-25 12:28:46 AM  
please tell them to take maroon5, justin biever, keisha, and damn near every other top 100 pop crap band thats been on the scene for the last 40-50 years while they're going. and don't come back.
2012-11-25 02:20:51 AM  
I don't mind Coldplay. I just wish Pandora would stop trying to shove them down my throat.
2012-11-25 07:57:57 AM  
I thought they were on three year hiatus.
2012-11-25 10:34:44 AM  
terrible no. Overrated, definitely
2012-11-25 05:26:55 PM  

CarnySaur: Excellent! Now Travis can finally make their comeback!!!

Always liked Travis better anyway
2012-11-25 07:35:08 PM  
Coldplay is no esta bueno. Plys theyre easy to misspell cokplay on mobile. Losers.
2012-11-25 10:01:22 PM  
I like Coldplay songs, but when I put in a CD I'm usually done with it halfway through. Took a couple on a trip to Vegas a few years back. Was really glad I took 28 other CDs to listen to before I even got to San Bernadino (I'm in San Diego).

I'm terribly disappointed in you people. Coldplay genuinely sucks, and three years is not long enough.
Granted, there are worse things out there, but they are quite awful.
