I'm enjoying Coldplay's newest, "X&Y." I think the sound is similar to "Rush of Blood..." and that is a fantastic CD. It would have been nice to hear some real changes and growth musically, but I also had that fear that they would change in a disappointing way. They haven't, and I know I will be listening to this CD for years to come.
I think this review from Relevant online is fair to both critique and praise the CD.
