Editors’ Notes

Echoing the stark atmospherics of Pink Floyd and the emotionally unguarded vocals of Brian Wilson in his prime, Coldplay creates music of austere power throughout this album. There's a majestic power to the band's stripped-down ensemble playing, whether they're unreeling a loping groove on "In My Place," weaving a swirling melody on "Clocks" or painting a bleak aural landscape on the title track.

Customer Reviews

Early Albums are always the Beat

Although I've loved all of Coldplay's stuff, their old stuff just brings up good memories. Awesome album.

Branch out people!!

I think people get too focused on the few songs that they are used to and popular, but there are so many awesome songs on this album!! listen to all of it!

Probably their best...

Likely one of the top 5 CDs of the early to mid 00's and in my opinion, their best work. AROBTTH is a great progression from Parachutes where Coldplay entered the airwaves as a Radiohead rip off. Their 2nd CD established their identity. Clocks is an overplayed and over rated anthem probably one of the weaker tracks on this CD in my opinion. However, The Scientist has to be one of the most amazing songs ever performed by Martin and company. AROBTTH is just a solid work of art throughout with other standouts including God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, In My Place, Amsterdam and the title track. Clearly a great effort by a band at their creative peak. I highly recommend it.

The group's emergence was perfectly timed; Radiohead had just released the overly cerebral Kid A, while Oasis had ditched two founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants....
