your right.. i feel the same way..
I have listened to the album and have yet to take it out of the car.
Then the other day a song was playing on the radio.
I thought to myself, self.. thats a pretty cool song, sure enough it was theirs
I saw Coldplay for the third time last night. We were seven rows from the right edge of the stage. Awesome show.
Lots of people say they are boring. My stepmother even told me that. I used to think they were pretty good after hearing Clocks and The Scientist on the radio. Then I saw them live and saw the energy they put into their music and I gained a whole new appreciation. I'm actually in a band that plays a few Coldplay songs now.
Everybody has different taste. It would be ridiculous if everybody liked the same music. Personally, I hate the Rolling Stones. I hate most indie stuff that so many people love. I love a lot of progressive rock/metal. Almost everything on the radio is trash. I hardly ever listen to the radio, and when I do I am surprised to find out that some music that I have on my iPod is actually popular. Who cares?
