Performance

Coldplay is an out of college band from Britain, which is comparable to Radiohead. Chris Martin at the age of twenty three leads the band with his shaky voice and ambitious guitar playing. The band's music is enjoyable and powerfully moody. Their music has the acoustic sound of Radiohead, yet has their own fashion of music. The powerful mood of the music varies from somewhat gloomy to blissful and to a calm, relaxed state. When Parachutes was released it climbed higher than Eminem's album, "Marshall Mathers LP" on the UK music charts. Their album remained in the top ten for 33 more weeks. They climbed the charts mainly because of the songs "Yellow", "Trouble", and "Shiver". Coldplay has not had just those hits but others including others like "Sparks" and "High Speed" which are songs that have been oustanding hits internationally. "Parachutes" is an album you would enjoy if you are a fan of Radiohead, Travis, Sparklehorse, or Supergrass. ---

Artist Overview
In 2000, Coldplay emerged seemingly out of nowhere to become a worldwide smash with their debut album PARACHUTES and hit single "Yellow." While oft lumped in with the Britpop crowd, they favor a more thoughtful, melodic, Travis-esque piano-centric pop approach than arena-rock chest-beaters like Oasis. Led by charismatic frontman Chris Martin, the band expanded its horizons (and its fanbase) throughout the aughts, while remaining true to its basic form. One of the only British rock bands of their era to make a major impact on the US charts, Coldplay prove that simple, memorable, straightforward pop-rock can still be striking even in the post-everything 21st century.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/26/00, p.111) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Straight-ahead, melodic Brit pop that strives for 'significance' with a capial 's'....[The album] rises above its influences to become a work of real transcendence..."
Spin (1/01, p.73) - Ranked #19 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]" - "...[They] hoist their blue guitars and tug on Radiohead's cape....evoking the forgotten shoegazers like Ride....Chris Martin makes early-'90s nostalgia seem like the next frontier."
Q (10/01, p.73) - Ranked #21 in Q's "Best 50 Albums of Q's Lifetime"
Q (1/01, p.91) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000" - "...[The] soundtrack to cheap vino-and-fag sessions..."
Alternative Press (12/00, p.94) - 4 out of 5 - "...Shimmering guitars haunt tormented tunes, dark gravel growls vie with Thom Yorke-y high notes....songs dawdle out of either a gentle whisper of sound or an awesome blurge of noise..."
NME (Magazine) (12/30/00, p.77) - Ranked #6 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year" - "...Effortlessly moving and hugely popular at the same time..."
