Compact Disc cover

Incredible as it may seem, Coldplay's latest offering, X&Y is even better than A Rush of Blood to the Head.

Like previous Coldplay work, “X&Y” takes a little bit of time to seep into your veins. The first time I listened to it, my immediate impression was that it was a natural growth from the previous offering (especially the first track), although with even catchier tunes. After three or four listenings, however, I found myself wanting to play it over and over again. The music is absolutely gorgeous - melodious pleasure that just keeps on getting better.

From my perspective, this is the best release of 2005 so far. You're going to want a copy in your hi-fi, on your computer, and in your car - so rip and burn away. Highly recommended.

    "I see you got that spam comment out of here."

    Yeah, it doesn't happen very often, but when it does I have a nice big fat DELETE button on my home grown admin panel (which also shows each commenter's IP address in case I feel like denying it).

    Definitely get the CD - I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

    He spammed again, so I blocked his IP address. I hate spammers.
