This literally hasn't left my player since it arrived at the start of the week! Chris Martin once said in an interview that he started Coldplay with the intention of them becoming the greatest ever band. Pretty arrogant and highly ambitious, but they seem well on the way to reaching their ambition with their two releases so far... This album is quite simply another great release from Coldplay. Not as good as Parachutes, but close! "In My Place" remains my favourite track from the album, but all the other tracks are strong too. From the twangy guitars of "God put a smile upon your face" and "Green Eyes" to the piano-leaden "The Scientist" and the string-heavy "Warniing Sign", this album just wreaks of sheer quality and musical craftsmanship. "Amsterdam" is a particularly beautiful and mellow finish to the album. The boys' Pink Floyd and Radiohead influences are strong throughout all of the tracks on the album and much of the percussion reminds me of Beck, while the pianos would not feel out of place on an Embrace CD. Can't wait for Coldplay's next one! Highly recommended!
