The Brothers & Sisters EP was originally released in 1999 and only available as an import. Coldplay were mere babies when recording the three songs found here; however, the sophistication that would soon be Parachutes was already coming into form. Before Coldplay had a record deal in the States, they were primarily a singles band in the U.K. Next to the Safety and Blue Room EPs, Brothers & Sisters is one of the many that made them a favorite among the college and indie rock crowds across Europe. From the cold acoustic guitars and Chris Martin's icy vocals on the title track to the more dark and subdued "Easy to Please," one could sense that Coldplay would do something big. Whether they broke in America or not, they were still going to matter. Completists already know that, and Brothers & Sisters is mostly for them.
Coldplay suprised me on this one
As an avid Coldplay fan, that has listened to almost all of their music besides a few EP's i had not listened to Brothers & Sisters. After reading the reviews i decided to try it out since i enjoyed parachutes a lot. What i found was some of the better Coldplay out there. This EP has a chilling feel to it that doesnt let you go, its just incredible. And i dont think only fans of Parachute will like it. I feel any real Coldplay fan will enjoy this. 1. Brothers & Sisters- 9.5/10 I didnt really expect much out of this EP as i thought it was more for the avid Coldplay collectors that were possibly obsessive over the band. This song changed my opinion. It has really upbeat instrumental, and Chris' voice is very soothing. I'd rank this song pretty high on my all-time favorite Coldplay songs list. 2. Easy to Please- 9/10 This song is so eerie it freaks me out sometimes. The strange voices that almost sound like a newscast in the backround create a feeling of almost fear as you listen to it. When the piano comes in around the second verse my spine literally tingles. This is the most eerie song Coldplay has ever written and i loved it. 3. Only Superstition- 8/10 This is a decent song, and it would be better in any other Coldplay album, but here it just doesnt fit. I think the transition from Easy to Please to here is forced since this song is a bit more upbeat after the incredibly mellow Easy to Please.
The Begining of it all...
Brothers and Sisters is a fantastic collection of 3 songs that show what this band would (and has) become. The highlight of this disc is the haunting, moody track "Easy to Please" but the other tracks are equally spectacular. If you're a Coldplay fan, you owe it to yourself to pick this up!
