Why This Album Is So Great:

This is the album that made Coldplay superstars. However, they weren't at the time the album was released and it can be heard. The album sparkles with hunger, creativity and melodic grandeur without ever becoming over the top. This album was made under the pressure of expectation but never sounds crippled by it. Some of Coldplay's later stuff does have that tendency and suffers from "having-to-be-as-big-as-U2-syndrome". Chris Martin hasn't got the greatest of voices but it works well both when it's embraced by sonic guitar sounds and when it's left naked with only limited instrumentation. It plays like an album and although there were several singles taken from it, the album really belongs together as a whole were an incredibly high musical level is kept from start to finish.

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 9
