MrMagpie Posted August 6, 2005 Share Posted August 6, 2005 So I can't decide what album I like better so I will do a matchup of each song from each album. Square One vs. Politik The piano bridge at the end of Politik is one of Coldplays finest moments. Politk is a better opener live too. It has more jump to it. Square One has a cheesey opening to. Musically and Lyrically. Winner: Politik What If vs. In My Place The Scientist Part II, I mean What If, is a very good song. Lyrically it is beautiful. It just doesn't have the same emotional level or energy level as In My Place. This one is close but I have to give it to In My Place. Winner: In My Place White Shadows vs. God Put a Smile Upon Your Face God Put A Smile Upon Your Face is my favourite track on this album. A catchy chorus, awesome lyrics, and lots of energy. White Shadows also has good energy and musically is good but is this Coldplay trying to catch up to U2? Winner: God Put A Smile Upon Your Face Fix You vs. The Scientist Both songs, very personal. Both songs, very good and catchy chorus. The Scientist, over played and too many people know how to play it on the piano. Fix You, it seems everybody loves this song first listen to the album. When it Fix You picks up, its one of their finest moments. Also a great song live. The Scientist is a classic though and never seems to get old even if it is overplayed. Winner: tie Talk vs. Clocks Both the album version and early version of Talk are excellent. Lyrically, I think Talk is the best song on the album. The themes of uncertainty in the song are easy to relate to. The guitar during the bridge is also amazing. Clocks though, that piano, it just sounds like something wonderful coming from a piano in a huge cathedral. Wills drumming is also exceptional. Winner: Clocks X&Y vs. Daylight I don't like the song X&Y. Winner: Daylight Speed of Sound vs. Green Eyes Speed of Sound sounds to much like the recycling of sound. Too much like Clocks and I don't like that lack or originality. It is a good song though. A good chorus. Green Eyes meanwhile is Coldplays best love song yet. It is fun to sing along with and is just an all around beautiful song. Winner: Green Eyes A Message vs. Warning Sign Both of these songs are pretty close to being my favourtite on each album. The acousitc version of both songs are good as well. The ending of Warning Sign is a little weak though unlike A Message. This one is close but the nod goes to A Message. Winner: A Message Low vs. A Whisper A Whisper gets on my nerves, and Low is very catchy. I love the part where it just goes "Low, and I Feel Lowww oh oh..." Winner: Low the Hardest Part vs. A Rush of Blood to the Head Chris's voice is good in the Hardest Part, the piano is great, the lyrics are great and the overall feel of the song is great. A Rush of Blood is too long of a name. I like the whole idea of buying a house and burning it down though. Winner: The Hardest Part Swallowed In The Sea vs. Amsterdam Amsterdam is the perfect song for closing a show and an album. The piano intro is excellent and the build up in the song until it gets to the rocky part. Swallowed In The Sea is better lyrically though, and has better vocals. Winner: Swallowed In the Sea [glow=red:77c41ed7f7]The final score: 7-5 for Rush of Blood.[/glow:77c41ed7f7] Both albums are exceptionally good and hard to decide which is better. It seems I like Rush of Blood better but that could change. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
