#465: A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay

1.26.2011


A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay (2002)

Favorite Track(s): "Politik" and "The Scientist" and "Green Eyes" and "Warning Sign" and "A Rush of Blood to the Head"

Thoughts: (Pre-listening) Wow, Coldplay is farther up on this list than I expected them to be. I mean, I'm not necessarily surprised to see them on the list, but just this far into it. Then again, I've never listened to this whole album before, so I am prepared to want to worship at the feet of this band when I'm finished with this record, OR ELSE. (Prejudice: my freshman year of college there was this guy always hanging around my roommate who adored Coldplay and he was one of the most frustratingly self-absorbed, emotional fuckwits I have ever met. So I'm going in with that too.)

(Post-listening) *Sigh* I give in. This album is very, very good. "The Scientist" remains one of the most re-listenable songs I've ever heard, and applicable to almost any human heartache you'd care to apply to it. And if you have someone in your life who when they hear "Warning Sign" or "Green Eyes", think of you, you are a very lucky person.
