we have a thread for this

i actually dug up this thread and was about to post it here, but thought that the "2021 albums" was more appropriate.  my main objective was to let folks know the album is coming out, but the secondary/aspirational reason for sharing this info was to get the haterz riled up.

Parachutes came out right after Kid A. It sounded to me like they were inspired to make the music that Radiohead would make if they wanted to be (stay) a popular guitar band. I thought it was great.

Saw them at 9:30 Club in 2002. Something that struck me was that it was an intimate show that didn’t feel intimate. Some bands make an arena feel small (Bruce) but they made the club seem big. Felt very staged and and kind of sterile.

They worked with Eno after that and I still haven’t had a desire to hear anything else they’ve done. Like I haven’t wanted to listen to U2 post 2005.  Or Lenny Kravitz after 1993. Or Stone Temple Pilots after 1994.

I'll also defend Parachutes as I think a lot of people on hear have before. It has interesting guitar parts. I actually saw them at their first ever US show (an HFStival) and it was clear they could play to big crowds even though that particular crowd wanted them to get off the stage.

Rush of Blood to the Head is . . . fine. The interesting guitar parts went away but its not a bad record. I saw them for the final time on the X&Y tour because someone who had never seen them wanted to go and it was clear they have lost the thread altogether. But there's an OK song or two on that.

Everything after that is garbage. What I hear off the most recent albums is just straight up embarassing.

Coldplay w/ H.E.R.

why won't they just go away
weren't they the ones who said they wouldn't tour any more unless they could figure how to do a carbon neutral world tour...

Coldplay: Band ready for backlash over eco-friendly world tour

they see the haters coming... so they've got that going for them.  which is nice.
