It's not my favorite kind of music by a loooong shot, but you're mad if you don't appreciate how sweet that shit sounded next to Third Eye Blind and Korn on the radio.
Still not an album I ever had any interest in owning... not an album I'll likely ever listen to in full, but still... "Yellow" was the tits.



If Radiohead wrote "Trouble" from Parachutes and put it on In Rainbows with a glitchy beat people would have lost their minds. I had to learn it the other day for work and it's deceptively complex harmonically

I agree. The piano hook could easily pass as a timmy Yorke plonk. I enjoyed the tune way Beck when...

But people did lose their minds over this song, didn't they? It was a pretty huge hit everywhere. I think it sounds more like the sort of maudlin ballad Adele builds her financial empire of dread and tears on.

Adele wouldn't know how to sing over those chords. "It's got wrong notes innit?"

Side note... it's a fun game to get people who rate themselves as musicians to try and play "Happy Birthday" by ear.

For me, the musical content (mostly harmony, melody and rhythm) is more important than the aesthetic experience of the music (the artists background, context, image, attitude, possibly lyrics).

For this reason, while I wouldn't rate Coldplay as a favourite band (hence this thread), I can identify nice moments within their songs.

Those Coldplay chords are pretty interesting. They wrote an interesting melody that makes them sound like a folk song, when actually it's quite complex. You can't just strum some open chords on an acoustic guitar and write that. That's going to make me go "oh, interesting". The fact Coldplay did it isn't really going to concern me.

Radiohead isn't a favourite band either, but pretty much all their songs except "No Suprises" are pretty clever in a similar way.

Just explaining my position in a bland way because it seems to have provoked such bemusement

Actually it would probably be more like, "Fuckin'ell, it's got bloody notes, does it? Fuck my face! I'm crude so I must be real and interesting! Lookit me knickers! Fuckin'ell!"

I think I view and listen to music in a similar way. It allows me to appreciate the nice moments regardless of context.

Yeah, but someone feels that way about Sleater-Kinney, and Low, and all the other bands we like. If those bands were more popular, more people would hate them.

Also, I don't think any of these memes are based on actual instances of Coldplay-dissing. There's some Shakespeare, some Thunder-dissing, a dumb meme by who knows who, and... well, maybe that top one.

Also also, his thread is (again) about bands we don't like. I don't like Coldplay, and I don't listen to Coldplay. But they've had some moments. I certainly hate plenty of other artists more. Like Drake.

Coldplay > Drake. Coldplay > blink 182. Coldplay > NickoRnback et. al

anyway I'll echo what others have said. I'm not a cold fan. But I like some of their songs. This is a thread about bands that you're not a fan of... but you like some of their songs.

Then everything is nothing and this is the equivalent of ending an argument with the most anodyne bullshit ever: "Well, you're entitled to your opinion". I KNOW MOTHERFUCKERS ARE ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINION. FUCK 'EM ANYWAY! TAKE A FUCKING STAND, PEOPLE!!

I think the Velvet Underground is one of the best bands of all time and the first album is an utter masterpiece. While being musically brilliant it is also aesthetically cool as all hell.

Coldplay's Parachutes is a more interesting album than Lou Reed's Mistrial. Lou Reed's artistic aesthetic isn't enough to save it.

I can comfortably hold both of these positions, regardless of the punchability of Chris Martin's face.
