EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, A Rush of Blood to the Head is driven by tenderness and urgency. The simplicity of the band’s melodies, the suppleness of Chris Martin’s vocals, and the grandness of the arrangements make “The Scientist” and “Clocks” resilient anthems for a new millennium. While the atmospheric “Daylight” and “Warning Sign” look back to the weightless space balladry of David Bowie and Pink Floyd, “In My Place” is a gentle, slow motion march that seems to stop time.

Breathtaking!

The best Coldplay album and one of the greatest albums of all time! It is absolutely amazing!

SPEECHLESS

The album, A rush of blood to the head, is one of the two greatest albums released by this artist (it an X&Y). If Coldplay never even thought of making this album, pretty much nobody would even know this artist is. “Politik” has its amazing theme and orchestra being played in the background, “In my place” has a charm that mimics the hit song “yellow” from their debut album “Parachutes”, GPASUYF (god put a smile upon your face) has negative tone that may make it go down in history, so will the rather emotional “The Scientist” and the insanely popular “Clocks”, “daylight” will have its respects along with the album named song “A rush of blood to the head” and the powerful “Ansterdam” and “Green Eyes”

Masterpiece

Clocks alone would be enough for me to give this album five stars, but the other songs are pretty good as well. Clocks really is the best song ever written, in my opinion.
