With this album, Coldplay asserted them as the gods of Indie (or, at least, of melodic, keyboard-y, depressing music). There are so many fantastic songs crammed into one CD here, that when I first got it I could hardly believe it. There are sad, slow songs such as the beautiful 'The Scientist' and the soft 'Amsterdam' and faster, brighter, uplifting songs such as 'Clocks' and 'In My Place'. With such a mix here, there's something for almost every mood, and I had extreme trouble picking my favourite (I'd say a toss up between Warning Sign and Green Eyes).
This is the best album Coldplay created, and also is definitely the best album I've ever bought. Go. Buy. Love.
