I love the late 90s Coldplay... not the current Coldplay. D and I had a conversation about this a couple of weeks ago. Somewhere circa 1998-2000 my musical taste stopped evolving. Don't get me wrong, I still like an artist here or there, but out of my all time favorite albums, at least 2 of them are from the late 90s. "Parachutes" is easily my favorite album EVER. "Rush of Blood to the Head" was excellent, but not as incredible as parachutes. "X&Y" was a big fat disappointment to me. I didn't even bother to buy it on itunes.
My questions are, first, Are any of you Coldplay fans? If so, What do you think of Viva La Vida? I can tell you I'm underwhelmed with the title track that is currently played on the radio. So, should I bother checking it out? What do you all think?
* if you are a Coldplay/Chris Martin fan, you should definitely check out a song called "Your love means everything pt. 2" by Faultline (feat. Chris Martin). Magical
