Coldplay's first record was great, but then they decided to write that same record over and over again. From the iPod commercial it sounds like they still haven't made any musical progress -- "A Rush Of Blood To The Head Pt. 3".
I like some of their stuff, but I am not a big fan. A friend of mine was given 2 tickets to their concert coming up soon. Sounds like I might be getting the extra ticket. I am not a big fan, I would never pay to see them, but live music is live music and a free ticket is even better.
