 A Modern Classic

It has to be said, Coldplay have certainly moved on to their commercial and anthemic 'X & Y's and 'Viva la Vida's without looking back. Their debut Parachutes is almost a secret that they've been hiding all this time. It's rarely talked about by either the band or it's ever-growing fan base of screaming girls and yet it still manages to grab number 14 in the 100 greatest albums. How? Well, it only has to be listened to. Parachutes isn't ground breaking nor does it "raise the bar." It is simply a collection of brilliantly written pieces of music which do not try to be clever or pretentious, isn't targetted at a particular audience and isn't marketed in any clever way. It's just good, honest and straight from the heart. It's calmingly melancholy but not depressing (or depressingly bad which X & Y turned out to be.) You won't hear any synthes or full string orchestras in the backgroud or layers upon layers of guitars to fill the spaces with cheap, rubbish effects. It's drums, guitars, piano and voice.
Singles like Yellow, Shiver and Trouble display commercial greatness and potential that Coldplay could (and have) achieve. The spacey High Speed and Spies give the album depth and spectrum. And the exquisite Everything's Not Lost brings a jazzy and hopeful close to album. This in my opinion is Coldplay's finest hour closely followed by 'A Rush...' Absolutely magic to chill out to; highly recommended.

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?

The great thing about coldplay is there always changing and always good from there first album to there last even though i think a rush of blood to the head is the best its worth buying and espcially for 3 quid its cheaper 2 buy the album than all the hit singles off of it on itunes and you ask me its dam worth it!!
