Advantages: Fantastic album with song great tunes
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
This album is without doubt, my favourite album of all time! In my opinion, there isn't really a weak song on it. Most people will have no doubt heard songs such as Speed Of Sound, Fix You, Talk and The Hardest Part on the radio, but the other tracks on the CD are probably as good as these or better.
The album starts with my favourite song, Square One. This is a very synth based track with a quiet build up to a powerful chorus - 'It Doesn't Matter Who You Are', Chris Martin emphasises.
Following this are two great songs, What If and White Shadows. What If seems to be about a relationship break up, and White Shadows is a mysterious song with a great beat.
Then comes Fix You and Talk. These songs don't need too much introduction. Both are great songs in Coldplay's live concerts (I saw them live in Birmingham, UK in 2008 - fantastic!).
Next up come X & Y (a really lovely sounding song) following by the classic, Speed of Sound. This was the first song released from this album, famously beaten in bizarre fashion in the UK Singles Charts by the Crazy Frog! How rude of him!
Other highlights on the album for me include track 9, Low. This song sounds wonderful when turned up loud on your stereo! The Hardest Part follows this, a great sing-a-long tune! I am also a fan of Twisted Logic, a very different sounding song to most of the other stuff on this album.
Anyway, if anyone quite likes the sound of Coldplay but hasn't bought this album yet, then get out and buy it NOW! You will not be disappointed!
Summary: Possibly Coldplay's Greatest Ever Album
