5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and perfect, 10 July 2014
This is a great album. I'm not usually a massive fan of Coldplay but hearing A Sky full of stars one morning before I ventured off to work really struck a chord with me. I started to listen to other tracks on youtube and quickly reached the conclusion I wanted to purchase. Its the kind of album that is quite subtle - the more you listen to it, the more you understand the lyrics and bang! when you reach A Sky full of stars you realise you are listening to a great group of musicians. I strongly recommend this one to anyone who likes Coldplay.

The Best Of 1990-2000 (2CD+DVD) ~ U2

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of U2, 17 Sep 2003
If you like U2 in the slightest, you need to buy this compilation CD. All the tracks are superbly written and executed. Bono taking the lead with 'The Edge's' rhythmic genius driving the songs to conclusion. In particular, 'Electrical Storm'and 'Happiness is a Warm Gun' are mind-blowing creations to listen to. Also, 'Please' on the DVD is an outstanding performance in Helsinki, when I watch it it blows me away every time....
