About this album

Parachutes is the Grammy award-winning debut album by English rock band Coldplay, released on July 10, 2000 in the UK and on November 7 in the U.S… Parachutes quickly shot to number one in the United Kingdom, staying in the top ten for thirty-three weeks.

The album produced four hit singles: “Shiver”, “Yellow”, “Trouble”, and “Don’t Panic”. In the United States, the album peaked at only fifty-one on the Billboard 200 yet, it still managed to sell over two million copies within a year.

Parachutes won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2002. It was placed at #14 in Channel 4’s 100 greatest albums of all time and in 2006 at #33 in NME’s 100 greatest British albums. Despite the album’s critical and commercial success, lead singer Chris Martin said that Coldplay looks beyond Parachutes. “We know that’s terrible music,” he said, “and we always try to think about what we can do next.”

    Back when Coldplay was good and the songs intimate... Now they just make music fit for stadium shows with a lot of 'aaa's and ooo's' to sing along [6]

    The feeling I get is that some people hated this when it came out for being too mainstream/overplayed, now they love it because the new albums seem that way in comparison or this album now has nostalgic status. Give the new stuff 10 years and see if the cycle continues. I like and appreciate everything they've done (3). This isn't just the case with Coldplay unfortunately...
