5.0 out of 5 stars Not immediately appealing but grows on you 19 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is not the kind of CD where you listen to it first time and are blown away. This is the kind of CD that you listen to again and again, and gradually more and more of the tracks appeal to you, until you just think, "Hey, this is actually a really good album." Almost all of the tracks have at least one part which you remember even after it has stopped playing, and that is where Coldplay display their subtle mastery. In fact, if I had to pick one word to describe X&Y, it would be the world subtle. The tracks have so many threads that you can concentrate on one part of the song each time you listen (if that floats your boat) or you can just familiarize yourself with the feel of the song.
I didn't like this album when I first listened to it, all except for one track - White Shadows. This one did grab me, possibly because it is upbeat right from the beginning. It's a really nice composition, despite the fact that the words make no sense.
I then heard Talk in a Gap store and was humming the tune all day. When I got back I listened to it more often, and also gave Fix You a go too. Fix You is a very soulful song, with a simple tune that is nevertheless sweet.
I think more thoughtful people will enjoy this album, although those other oh-so-shallow Coldplay fans can come too. I really hope you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alright, so it's not quite OK Computer..... 7 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Those of you who haven't listened to this album just yet are in for a real treat!
As others have hinted, on first hearing perhaps only 2 or 3 songs will catch your ear - For me it was "Square One" and "Fix you". At first I grew concerned that this might be an album just to cherry-pick tracks off - but then the thought that a Coldplay album wouldn't have any longevity began to plague me and I went back and did what the Chris and the lads wanted us to do - Listen to the WHOLE album. So I did.... and did again.....and again. What started out as a labour of love on my part soon blossomed into a love affair and then an infatuation that is not likely to dissolve easily.
So, don't pay too much attention to the serial knockers who have plainly been saving up their unwarranted bile for the last 2 or 3 years to serve up cold and not very convincingly. This is an easy album to turn ones nose up at if you've got a very dull or rusty axe to grind. But you don't have to buy into that "Fair Trade" thing or start sponsoring animal welfare charities, or whatever to enjoy this music. My ears don't tell me lies - they convince me time and time again that Coldplay are one of the few current active song-writing groups who make music that I could live with 24/7. It may be glib to say so but their music is truly becoming the soundtrack to many of our lives....
So go on, take that step of faith and invest in what was thought to be their "difficult 3rd album". You may have tired of "Yellow" by now - I have a feeling that you won't be tiring of this slow burning beauty for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars My hands-down favourite Coldplay album! 15 May 2013
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'X&Y' is one of those few albums that I'm able to play it is entirety from start to finish, I still regard it as Coldplay's best album. If ever I require music to relax me - I always turn to this one.

It only took me one listen to become absorbed in this album, with brilliant songs, beautiful lyrics and excellent electric guitar work which became more prominent in this, their third album.

With so many positive (and surprisingly quite a few one star) reviews already for this album, I can probably only mirror what others have said, but I would strongly encourage anyone to buy 'X&Y'. My personal favourite tracks though are 'White Shadows', 'The Hardest Part', 'Talk', the latter was rightly released as a single as was the middle, strangely enough though, it failed to chart. After almost ten years, this is still a stunning album from a great band.

4.0 out of 5 stars hauntingly beautiful, surprisingly uplifting 1 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Now I'm a full-time Mum and "don't get out much", I find myself in an '80's void, tending to buy only the albums I missed out on buying in my late teens and twenties. Sad, but true.
However, this all changed when I saw the Coldplay set on Live8 a few weeks back. I had of course heard of the band (and sadly knew more about the fact that the lead singer had a baby with Gwyneth Paltrow, and they had named the baby 'Apple'...). I found I was moved by the lyrics, and felt I must buy the album. I am so glad that I did.
I'm not very good at all the jargon that goes with album reviews I read in newspapers. This is a beautiful album, and surprisingly uplifting. I play it when relaxing, when the kids are screaming and driving me mad, when I need a lift as well as when I'm slowing down. It's great, buy it. I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Coldplay pull it off again 2 Feb 2006
By Hawky
Format:Audio CD
Coldplay had a great challenge presented to them when they began working on this, their third album. They had great expectations after their stunning debut 'Parachutes' and their subsequent smash hit 'A Rush of Blood to the Head'. The moment the first notes of 'Square One' sound in the air you begin to realise that Coldplay have once again created a great album, along with a unique new 'sci-fi' sound. Although all of this album is marvelous the high points include 'White Shadows', 'Talk', 'The Hardest Part' and the hidden track 'Till Kingdom Come'. This album is a must have for any coldplay fan and anybody else with any degree of musical appreciation should also give it a listen.
