5.0 out of 5 stars
Wonderfully uplifting, 19 Sept. 2002
I'll get the one gripe I have with this out of the way. The chord sequence on 'Green Eyes' copies Gabrielle's 'Rise' and 'Knockin' on Heaven's door'
Apart from this, it's varied, original and wonderfully produced. Highlights are In my Place, Scientist, Daylight and Amsterdam, but quite honestly it's all good stuff!
I never really got into Parachutes, but Chris Martin's voice is absolutely fantastic. The Scientist is beautiful, while Politik and Daylight bring to mind Radiohead at their best. Chris Martin does seem to like to copy Thom Yorke's style - I hope they don't become too similar.
Well done Coldplay - bringing superb music to the mainstream (top of the UK album charts)
