fwiw coldplay are actually an amazingly energetic and enthralling live band no matter whether you like their music or not.

Chris Martin's voice simply gives me diarrhea.

It more or less boils down to the fact that the character of Ross from Friends is almost certainly a huge fan. Nothing would make him happier than a double bill of Hootie and the Blowfish and Coldplay.

A beige facsimile of genuine passion, belief, melody and excitement. That bloody falsetto. A baby named Apple. The inescapable eco-friendly smugness. It's 'aspirational' music. An accessory for a starbucks lifestyle. Plain. Bloody. Awful.

I suspect you're rather missing the point. The poster you replied to was contemplating buying tickets, so obviously at least somewhat like's the band's studio output, so saying why you don't like them is unlikely to be at all helpful

For what it's worth, I think they're a distinctly OK band, easy enough on the ear, and with fairly good hooks, but in essence a watered down Jeff Buckley / Radiohead. Not necessarily daring or original, but then not all music has to be, otherwise we'd run out of new music fairly quickly.

oh come on!! Green, Mermaids, and Calmness. Incense, bare feet, black, and freaky lights. Pure evil, isn't it? I am with you on that fruit thing - shudder.

I know it's a "gamble" to see Dylan, but I'm one of those who loves his music, style and all that. I find his liveperformance amazing. How you don't recognize the songs before he starts to sing. How he changes the songs from day to day. He simply is a true genius!

Southside Johnny on 4th October - 3 miles from my home town - in deepest darkest Somerset! Woohoo!
