Why people like this band is utterly beyond me, reputable people with otherwise good taste in music tend to be taken in by this 8th generation Urban Outfitters sounding turd.

So blandly offensive in it's inoffensiveness it's like a stream of urine in my drink.

CRAP, resoundingly CRAP.

there is nothing impressive about copping radiohead's sound at its most boring and rehashing it in every song. at best, they're a dumber version of 'the bends,' without anything that made that record bearable.

crap crap crap.

Edit: typos seven years later!

I'll be the first non-crap vote....

I had them pegged as another giver of radio head, but when I actually listened to A Rush of Blood...in it's entirety I was duly impressed...beautiful melodies and one of the more tolerable singles of last year, 'Clocks'

But this isn't the safest place for lovers of certain kinds of pop music so I'll just exit with that

i understand the argument that they're somewhat derivative of other
bands across the pond and that they, at times, can be boring, but
i disagree with the crap statements. a couple of their singles get me
every time. 'yellow' is one of the better singles in the last few years.

coldplay?

not crap

They're not great but they're on the high end of tolerable. I would say not crap.

well, this supposed "art-school" rock just sounds kind of shitty to me. there is a beauty to simplicity, but coldplay just kind of annoys me. I did get to see an a cappella group at pomona college do a version of one of their songs, which i did enjoy. otherwise though, i can't really stand them.

Oh my, I am really about to defend Coldplay! I never thought it would come to this but here I go...

They are not the Beatles. They are not Neil Young, nor are they the Velvet Underground or Slint. That said, I really do enjoy hearing their songs. It is a total guilty pleasure. Ear candy? Yes. Balls? No. But still, something about the songs makes me enjoy them.

No, I am not a thirteen year old girl, I swear.

I can already think of one band that is more worthy of a crap rating: Travis...whatever happened to those lads?

while i have enjoyed a few of their singles, i have a sister and girlfriend who own their cds and most of the non singles are extremely unspectacular...

its also very annoying that they have become the band to reference as evidence of your diverse musical taste...

I can't think of a bad song off "A Rush..." actually

They're not one of those filler bands

'Daylight' is just ok, but everything else is really good

Ok, enough Coldplay proselytizing, back to work

Coldplay is totally crap. They sound like Radiohead meeting Dave Mathews.

CRAP-O-RAMA.

this band are sooooooo crap it's unbeleviable.... oh my god - are you all serious when you say not crap? surely, surely you must be kidding? for the love of humanity!!!!!

Chris Martin the singer is a complete cock because he writes a trendy political message on his hand at every photo opportunity (such as 'stop the war') - it's such a transparent attempt to consolodate his retarded student fanbase, thus selling more of his horrible records. If he was serious about any of his throwaway soundbites he could do a fuck lot more than write stoopid meesages on his hand. ASSHOLE!

I saw this mtv footage of the little cunt doing a 'comedy' (and i use the word in its loosest possible sense) dance to 'vogue' - made me puke there & then.

Their songs are the most putrid attempt to sell as many records to the middle aged, middle classes who think they are 'serious about music' as they can. There is nothing to like about this band - they are fucking horrible.
