This has to be one of the best albums Coldplay has ever released. It has so many good songs, such as “Talk”, “Low”, and “White Shadows”, And has an overall outer space-ish vibe to it that makes it a great album to listen to when you just want to chill out or get lost somewhere. 10/10 and I would definitely recommend if you haven’t listened to it yet.
I don’t know how it is possible to make such a perfect album. All the tracks are amazing. I could listen to this on repeat for the rest of my life and never get tired of it. Thank you Coldplay for blessing my ears.
This album start to finish is pure magnificence displayed. I remember listening to this album when it came out with my parents when I was 8 and immediately knew I was destined like so many to fall in love with Coldplay music. Wish they would go back to this sound.
This album has a great mix of slow and fast songs. Songs such as X and Y,White shadows, and Speed of Sound have elements of well thought out song writing. This album as a whole creates a comprehensive masterpiece of real life centered music. This is the last great album Coldplay ever made.
Now I purchased the whole album, however my two old songs that I got ten years ago, speed of sound and fix you occur last on the album and I have a duplicate song of fix you. iTunes— get it together. I would have just bought the album at Walmart if I knew the songs would be out of order
This album has so many different feels. The instruments are absolutely fantastic. This album has helped me through hard times in my life. It changed mine let it change yours. Favorites include square one, white shadows, low, speed of sound, a message, swallowed in the sea, the hardest part, and talk. I had trouble not listing the whole album. I listen to it all the time. It is my favorite album from them. It's so amazing words can't describe how much i love it. The drums and guitars. It's just so great.
I'll be frank, this is my least favorite Coldplay album. "How?" you may ask. "How can this be your least favorite when there's albums like Mylo Xyloto and A Head Full of Dreams to bash?!". While I don't enjoy the more poppier sound Coldplay has been putting out, at least it's still enjoyable. X & Y has the repetition problem. Basically all of their deep cuts on this album are the same, musically and lyrically. Idk, this album doesn't do it for me. Aside from that, Fav songs are Talk, Fix You, Speed Of Sound, and A Message.
This is by far one of coldplays best album and its filled with lots of exilaration and rock. I think you should buy the entire album. Its not boring and coldplay did a great job creating this album.
If you had to pay full price for just one song "Fix You" in my opinion would be worth the 9.99. Other songs worthy of attention though are "Til Kingdom Come", "The Message", and "Hardest Part".
X&Y is by no means a terrible album. The U2-ish riffs are quite enjoyable, and the melodies are typically pleasant. However, Chris Martin's frequent use of falsetto and melodramatic lyrics becomes tiresome quite quickly. (Worst offender: the overrated and truly banal single "Fix You".) However, this record does have a few high points: Speed of Sound (even if it sounds like Clocks) and Talk, for example. In my opinion, X&Y is Coldplay's second- or third-worst album (After Ghost Stories and maybe A Head Full of Dreams). Thank goodness they released a great record, Viva La Vida, after this one.
I remember that I had bought the track Swallowed in the sea And I accidentally saw this album, which lists the tracks with $1.29 so I bought the track swallowed in the sea again. AND IT JUST WORKED. This track costs me 2x money. I wonder how it works that I could buy it twice??????
Why does iTunes delete the ratings for these albums? Ratings help catch people's attention and a rating of "32" people looks as if this album wasn't popular and looks like it isn't the genius album it is!
This album can go either way Being Great and Meh Rock elements are a bit scarce on this album but that doesn't make it a bad album. It experiments with new sounds/genres and almost all of them are great tunes.
I don't know why iTunes insists on deleting reviews off of albums. It makes this look like an obscure indie record. Nevertheless, this is an excellent album by Coldplay, with songs such as Till Kingdom Come, Fix You, Speed of Sound, Talk, and The Hardest Part ranking as some their best songs ever.
