5.0 out of 5 stars PARTY LIKE ITS 1985!, 13 Aug. 2005
Buy this album now. Dance. Be happy.
A mind bendingly brillant mix of nursery rhyme raps and 80s tv theme tunes. This makes me want to eat pickled onion Monster Munch while watching the A Team, before leaping around the house causing havoc - good days, good times, great music.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn..., 6 Jun. 2005
This review is from: X&Y (Audio CD)
Once again a Coldplay album gets rave reviews from the drearily pedestrian critics at Q and the like, Once again if you have a musical taste beyond the Top 40 and Radio 1 you will likely be as bored with this album as i was.
This is not to say to is a particularly bad album, White Shadows and Fix You are good songs, it is just that it is yet more of the same, and no, burying insipid synth lines and 'atmospheric' organ so low in the mix that they are bearly audiable does not make this tired selection of songs the bold new step for Coldplay that some have claimed. And please, for the love of the god above and my own sanity, will someone please stop the guitarist from repeatedly using those same two chords over, and over, and over again.
i have no doubt that this will sell by the truck full, and Coldplay Fans will surely love it, but in a year that has already given us fantastic albums from, The Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes, Common, M.I.A, LCD Soundsystem, Beck, Bloc Party, Gorillaz, The White Stripes, Out Hud, Roots Manuva and British Sea Power to name but a few, it will be criminal if 2005 is remembered as the year of Coldplay.
