Products / Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
(Alternative rock) While Coldplay's first record, 'Parachutes', will always hold a special place for us, their second release seems to get tarred with the same brush as all the vanilla stuff they continue to release today. However, it is a great record, with a beautiful production. Take 'The Scientist' for example. Beautiful Radiohead-esque chords, met with true melancholy imparted by Chris Martin's beautiful vocal parts. And what about that drum sound on 'In My Place'? You don't have to "like" Coldplay to recognise this as a banger. Highlight track: 'The Scientist'.
