This is definitely the best indie album in recent years and undoubtedly heading to be the album of the year.

Politik' is a superb opener, nicely followed up by 'In My Place' and 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face'. The vinyl itself sounds and feels great, the album is on a single disk but it's far better that way - The first side especially is just golden to listen to. On Coldplay's A Rush of Blood to the Head, the melodic excellence of Parachutes remains, as does the delicate soulfulness of Chris Martin's voice. Quite surprised considering the fact that it came in a paper sleeve, and since Record Industry fumbles the bag often. Opens in a new window Opens an external site Opens an external site in a new window Newbury Comics - A Wicked Good Time!This is pretty much the apotheosis of post-Radiohead guitar-rock, a collection of vastly moving songs that will render stadiums as intimate as bedrooms. Whether you're a Coldplay fan or not, this album is sure to leave you yearning for more- from its thought provoking lyrics to its incredible soundscape throughout- almost like a musical arc that runs through the album. Despite the fact that the band dismissed Green Eyes as a B-side, I personally find it to be quite charming and not an embarassing love song. Hits like “Clocks” and “The Scientist” showcase the band at its peak and demonstrate its talent for creating emotional, compelling music. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed.

Although it was very good I did feel that it was slightly overrated and not a true classic and was more a pre-cursor for future great works like this album. Warning Sign, in particular, is the closest relative to The Verve and Richard Ashcroft that you will hear with Chris Martin's strong voice and his refrain "the state we're in. Beyond this, each of the 11 tracks--from the literate power ballad "In My Place" to the 60s-style mantra "Daylight"--are given room to breathe, gradually reaching an ecstatic crescendo where Martin and that huge Coldplay piano ride over a pulsing rhythm and orchestrations that are powerful but never overblown. Overall, “A Rush of Blood to the Head” is not just an excellently composed and produced album, but its vinyl version also sets new standards for audiophile quality and aesthetic experience. But now different styles are approached, as the band develop even further beyond their debut album (and the numerous Radiohead comparisons that dogged them at first).

In my humble opinion, it is Coldplay's Magnum Opus and I believe it will remain so until their very last album. A Rush Of Blood To The Head deserves a place in any music lover's collection and it is certain to stand the test of time. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As previously mentioned it is the closest to Running to Stand Still that you will ever hear with its quite simply beautiful piano melody.

With their Radiohead, Verve and Jeff Buckley influences, Coldplay continue along the same lines as their previous work, although this album is more energetic and less melancholy. The immediate thing that the listener notices is that the production is improved and much more refined - the organic, rawness of Parachutes remains but this is also met with a smoothness and crispness of sound and subtle atmospherics in the background on some of the tracks.

Granted it had 4 or 5 classic songs in the likes of Don't Panic, Shiver, Spies, Trouble and High Speed but We Never Change and Everything's Not Lost were flimsy to say the least.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Released on 26 August 2002 in the UK through the label Parlophone, the album was produced by the band and producer Ken Nelson. It also plays a big part as far as nostalgia is concerned as I first fell in love with it while on holiday in Los Angeles a few months after its initial release.
