Parachutes

by Coldplay

(2000) Capitol

Description A very mellow CD. People hate it when they hear a song and yet expect the entire album to sound like that, and yet it doesn't. Isn't the case here.

Great, great cd... a little bid sorry the balance between fast/slow is a little off (better on the 2nd album though), but this just has class... From the flowing opening of Don't Panic to the lonesome ending of Life is for Living, it is emotion... and this emotion has made one hell of a cd... BTW, if you ever get the chance to see this live, don't pass it up... The piano technique of Chris Martin may be a little more "explicit" than Alicia Keys (surprised he didn't fell off his stool at the concert), this guy makes a great frontman... Don't miss this! *Don't Panic *Shiver *Spies *Sparks *Yellow *Trouble *Parachutes *High Speed *We Never Change *Everything's Not Lost *Life Is For Living

A very great CD with a great sound. I don't think it could be better. The best guitar playing would have to be on the song Yellow. I just love the way it sounds in the beginning.

Beautifully written songs, sung with passion. They are an amzing band, on record and live they put on a GREAT show.

Like I just said, people hate it when they hear a hit from some new band and go, "hey, that sounds really cool", and they go out and buy their album, play it, and hear that all the songs suck except for that one song they heard on the radio. Well, with Coldplay, their great song Yellow (which I think is not making a lot of commercial success because it ain't some pop crap or all that adreniline pumping, rap/rocking rage hitting s---), has the sound that the entire album follows. Every song is melodic and majestic, the way a lot of people like it. I like to play their CD when it's either raining, I'm bored, taking a shower or a nap, or reading. It's also great during conversations with friends in the background, I don't know how, but it is. I like them, they aren't trying to thrill anyone, or get a lot of money or girls or attention, no, they're just making great music that they enjoy, and want other people to listen to it. I like bands that have some kind of focus on their music one way or another, but also like to experiment a little and try new things. Coldplay's CD is a great CD, and should earn more commercial respect, it's so sad that people are shying away from it, they're such a good band. Their sound has an echo behind it that makes you feel echoy, like in a cave or some kind of other world, I enjoy that, also. I would recomend this CD to anyone who really enjoys music, and likes to have many different styles of music in their collection. Which is a shame because Coldplay deserves so much more.
