  • And this absolute classic from Faithless. Just spend the song waiting and building up the adrenalin for the Sister Bliss keyboard chop. Turn. It. Up.

  • I Remember is my fav too UT, although this particular mix is my fav;

    Soon be nothing of this world.
  • I was a big fan of the Swedish house mafia- especially the song 'don't you worry child'. Then they disappeared. I hope they make a come back.

    Ive also dipped back into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. A bit of secondary school nostalgia there.
  • I listened to a bit of Coldplay from the Parachutes album today and realised just what a sack of shite they've been since that brilliant first album. Perfect example of initial fame going to your head and then getting right up your own arse.

  • Each to their own really. I have their album 'l'a rush of blood to the head' and have always adored clocks and fix you. Also the 'speed of sound' song too.

    Paradise is an awesome song!!

    I still think they have composed some great songs.
  • I think Coldplay are better than the likes of the Arctic Monkeys where every song sounds the same and just so generic.

    KT Tunstall- I miss her music too. She rocked.
  • I take the needle off the Technics and put it in my vein

    Do not trigger our Mr UT :)
  • So I've felt obliged to start listening to Eye To The Telescope. No links to clips.
  • KT is still about Serenity. Saw her only a few months ago and have tix to see her in May. She just released a new album called Kin.
    Eye to the Telescope is another fab album Turgssss. Not a bad track on it.

    Viva La Vida is their best. Lol.

  • I feel KT Tunstall YouTube session coming on!! She is great though.

    She reminds me of Kelly Clarkson.
  • I came across Coldplay at the same time as I did Keane, with the albums Parachutes and Hopes & Fears, both of which were excellent and I had high hopes, high apple pie in the sky hopes, of both being long term bands for me based on how much I enjoyed their respective first albums. However, I found both disappointed ( me at least) with follow ups. Keane had The Iron Sea. It had a couple of good tracks, the titular one certainly, but it failed to deliver the consistency of that first album, with Bedshaped being a track I still listen to frequently.
    There is obviously a connection between the two bands through Tim Rice-Oxley but although the Coldplay follow up, A Rush of Blood to the Head was a technically competent album, and a highly successful one, I felt it lacked the intimacy and honesty of the first album, and the same level of crafting in the songs of the first album, and as their star has risen, I feel this has been sacrificed further on the alter of commercialism and seeking larger markets; the death knell of the integrity of many bands.
    In short, they have never been able to recreate songs like this, and I could have picked virtually any from Parachutes, they are all so good.
