World Exclusive Coldplay article on Q @ 11:11 am

goldenbrowneyes:
I'm currently feelin: good good
I'm currently hearin: Gone - Elevation Tour

"What matters is trying to write the best tunes in the world. And having a picture of U2 on the wall, and trying to pump enough logs to take out the Drago[the Russian villian in Rocky IV] that is U2- that's our mission. I don't care about being big, I don't care about being famous, I care about being a streamlined fighting machine" -Chris martin

"On Tour with U2" <<< also on this issue. They review the first shows (SD, Anheim, Los Angeles(I was there!) of the Vertigo Tour. Great show pictures included and facts about the tour.

I thought it was funny and interesting that Chris Martin said that. I am a fan of Coldplay but I love U2 of course. Their new single "speed of sound" sounds awesome. Go out and get the magazine. Q4music.com

Coldplay rules.
I need "Speed of Sound" on my u2Pod asap.

I saw that issue at Best Buy with the title, "Is Coldplay the next U2?"

Dude...U2 isn't anywhere near over yet. Let's wait until they are gone to start looking for suitable replacements.

Exactly! U2 still has a lot left in them, unlike, let's say, The Rolling Stones. Heh.

I heard Speed of Sound the other day, and it's not a bad song, I just think it's kinda blah. Then again I've never really been all too impressed with Coldplay's first singles off each album, it's always the next one that blows me away, so we'll see. I'll still most likely get the album though.

My u2pod has the habit of playing "God Put a Smile Upon My Face" at least twice daily.
I don't complain.

I was blown away by "The Scientist" when I first heard it. As well as Clocks...but you...it's Clocks.

I really hate it when Chris Martin says he wants to be better than U2, and when reporters say they're gonna replace them when U2 isn't even over yet. For God's sake, his little band has just started and U2 has a career of over 25 years, wtf.

U2 = Coldplay... unlikely to happen. Never.

I like their music, but that new single isn't all that good. lol.

Oh, exactly. They've been around for 5 years - popularity wise in any event.

And the new single just doesn't do it for me. It's Clocks Pt II - but way boring.

I agree! When I got "Speed of Sound" off iTunes, it was a bit of a letdown. I totally thought it sounded derivative of "Clocks" too--not that "Clocks" is a bad song. In fact, I love "Clocks," but I was disappointed that they sounded so similar. Although seeing them do it live on SNL last week made me like it a twinge more.

I thought of Clock at first. But as a musician... I saw more in Speed of Sound. They might of sounded familiar at first but now I see they are so different. Their SNL performance was great. Chris Martin never sounded that great.

Chris Martin is a huge fan of U2. He was just at a U2 show a few weeks ago. Who cares what reporters/media say... it is there opinion, doesn't mean they are right.
As much as I like Coldplay, they will never compare to the Edge and Bono.

Coldplay is good, no one can say they suck. :)

Until recently, I thought I was the only one. But this week the Crazy Frog single is outselling Coldplay for the #1 spot, and loads of people have emerged from the woodwork to say how amused they are. *g*

I like a couple of Coldplay songs, but they're so overrated it's not funny. Comparisons with U2 - pleeeaaase. And I really don't like Chris Martin's voice.

You like Coldplay's songs but you don't like Chris' voice? Sooo... you like only the music then?

I did say I only like a couple of their songs (and even then, not enough to buy, or anything). I suppose I mostly like the tunes, or the general feel of them. But I still think he has a really boring, nasally voice for the most part. I'm always picky about voices... *shrug*
