The only Coldplay album I need in my life, I can happily listen to this one whenever fantastic album with a lot of depth, favourite track has to be 'Trouble' but l also love 'Everything's Not Lost' great track to finish a great album
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 . So true, I adore this album, the rest of their stuff is very hit and miss for me.
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 . This isn't just the case with Coldplay unfortunately...
