Forget trashing rooms and rent-a-quotes, just listen.
It's all a question of what you want from your rock stars. The criticism most often levelled at Coldplay (certainly round these parts) is that they will never be the saviours of rock'n'roll. They will never cause front-page tabloid sensation and they really like their parents. Frankly, they're more likely to enjoy a nice cup of tea in front of the TV than throw it out the...

Coldplay - Parachutes: Wikipedia Album Entry
Parachutes is the Grammy award-winning debut album by English rock band Coldplay, released on July 10, 2000 in the UK and on November 7 in the U.S.. Parachutes quickly shot to number one in the United Kingdom, staying in the top ten for thirty-three weeks.
The album produced four hit singles: "Shiver", "Yellow", "Trouble", and "Don't Panic". In the United States, the album peaked at only fifty-one on the Billboard 200 yet, it still managed to sell over two million copies within a year.
Parachutes won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2002. It was placed at #14 in Channel 4's 100 greatest albums of all time and in 2006 at #33 in NME's 100 greatest British albums. Despite the album's critical and commercial success, lead singer Chris Martin said that Coldplay looks beyond Parachutes. "We know that's terrible music," he said, "and we always try to think about what we can do next."

Bones sinking like stones
All that we've fought for
Homes, places we've grown
All of us are done for
When I counted up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulders
I drove the other ones away
I want to live life
Never be cruel
I want to live life
Be good to you
In a haze
A stormy haze
I'll be round
I'll be loving you
Oh no I see
A spider web it's tangled up with me
And I lost my head
The thought of all the stupid things I said
Did I drive you away
I know what you'll say
You say, oh, sing one we know
But I promise you this
I awake to find no peace of mind
I said how do you live as a fugitive
Down here where I cannot see so clear
I said, what do I know
So I look in your direction
But you pay me no attention, do you
I know you don't listen to me
'Cause you say you see straight through me, don't you
Can anybody fly this thing
Before my head explodes
Or my head starts to ring
Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow
