Parachutes is perhaps what made Coldplay famous outside they're own territory before making A Rush Of Blood. The Hit singles Trouble and Yellow smashed through a musical landscape formed like an desert after years of the 90's musical influences. Like me you probably don't remember anything special about those years until Coldplay entered the stage bringing a new level. Influenced by their likes, Radiohead, U2 and dusin of others they fast detained they're position. But the musically influences or likeness didn't bother. It was they're style their heart that sung out and made a life changing album, to me that is. It got me headed for a better direction. And like lots of people loving the sound of the band and Chris Martins voice with lyrics soon became theraphy. I would like to add that they made some great B-sides to their singles. And one of them would probably have changed the whole content of the album "maybe" stating clearer what Coldplay really is?
