Parachutes 3. High Speed 4. We Never Change 5. Life Is For Living. Similar to other people loved Parachutes but rapidly lost interest having bought the next two albums. I find them boring. My original copy was quite noisy, i wonder if this will be better. I was going to buy it until I read a few reviews saying how bad a pressing it was. Adored his album when it dropped, me and my mates were really into it. For all the haters, the album is 9x platinum in the UK alone, and also sold over 2 million in the U.
It means that a lot of people liked the music enough to buy it in bucket loads, and that Coldplay as young men earnt a lot of money. Good for them. Favourite Coldplay track? Gravity by Embrace. Now that is one album that badly requires a remaster. It sounds terrible. Wonder if this a remaster and if not, what master it will be sourced from. Coloured vinyl would be a nice-to-have rather than a must-have.
