theconstable6 Posted November 24, 2011 Share Posted November 24, 2011 Just to stir up some more controversy, my friend and I made this...here's the note I posted to Facebook. Cheers everyone :D Ethan and I were bored one day...so we while we were playing FIFA we put Coldplay on. They're one of my favorite bands, and we both know the catalog front-to-back-to-front (though if I had to go to a desert island or the moon I would take a few bands ahead of them)...so to make it even more fun we gave every song ratings out of 10! Predictably, vicious arguments ensued. I thought Don't Panic was the best song on Parachutes, he favored Shiver. I liked Spies, he liked Sparks. I was astounded he didn't rate Green Eyes as high as I did, he was amazed I wasn't as fond of Amsterdam. And that's not even dealing with all the fighting we did over X&Y. Nevertheless, we compromised. We actually only outright agreed on a few things: Crest of Waves is a 10 hands-down, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall is so bad it doesn't deserve a rating but we gave it one out of pure sympathy, Lovers in Japan deserves to be laughed at, then spat on, then shot, it's not possible for Clocks to feasibly be any higher or lower than a 9, and Fix You was overrated. Without further ado: Parachutes: Don’t Panic 9.5/10 Shiver 9/10 Spies 9.25/10 Sparks 9/10 Yellow 8.25/10 Trouble 8.5/10 High Speed 8.5/10 We Never Change 7.5/10 Everything's Not Lost 6.75/10 Life Is For Living 7.0/10 A Rush of Blood to the Head: Politik 7.5/10 In My Place 7.25/10 God Put A Smile Upon Your Face 7.75/10 The Scientist 9/10 Clocks 9/10 Daylight 7/10 Green Eyes 9.75/10 Warning Sign 7.25/10 A Whisper 7.5/10 A Rush Of Blood To The Head 9.25/10 Amsterdam 9.25/10 X&Y: Square One 9/10 What If 7/10 White Shadows 8.75/10 Fix You 7.75/10 Talk 8.75/10 X&Y 8.25/10 Speed of Sound 8.5/10 A Message 8.5/10 Low 7.5/10 The Hardest Part 7.75/10 Swallowed in the Sea 8/10 Twisted Logic 8.25/10 Til Kingdom Come 8.25/10 Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends: Life In Technicolor 7.5/10 Cemeteries of London 3.5/10 Lost! 5.5/10 42 4.5/10 Lovers in Japan 3.75/10 Reign of Love 7.5/10 Yes 4.75/10 Chinese Sleep Chant 5.25/10 Viva la Vida 7/10 Violet Hill 7.25/10 Strawberry Swing 8.25/10 Death and All His Friends 7.5/10 The Escapist 8.5/10 Lost? 7.5/10 EPs, B-sides, and unreleased tracks: Ode to Deoderant 7.5/10 Brothers & Sisters (Ode to Deoderant) 8.0/10 Bigger Stronger 8.25/10 No More Keeping My Feet On The Ground 7.75/10 Such A Rush 7.25/10 Brothers & Sisters (Brothers & Sisters) 8.0/10 Easy to Please 9.5/10 Only Superstition 9.25/10 See You Soon 8.5/10 Brother & Sisters (Trouble B-side) 8.5/10 Help Is Round The Corner 7.75/10 One I Love 7.25/10 I Bloom Blaum 7.25/10 1.36 7.0/10 I Ran Away 7.75/10 Crest of Waves 10/10 Animals 8.75/10 Murder 7.5/10 Gravity 7.0/10 Proof 7.25/10 Sleeping Son 7.0/10 The World Turned Upside Down 6.5/10 Things I Don't Understand 8.75/10 A Spell, A Rebel Yell 7.0/10 Life In Technicolor II 7.75/10 Glass Of Water 6.5/10 Rainy Day 6.75/10 Lost+ 7.5/10 Poppyfields 6.75/10 Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall 1.5/10 Major Minus 8/10 Moving To Mars 8.25/10 Top 10 songs: 1.

A Rush of Blood to the Head (A Rush of Blood to the Head) 6. Only Superstition (Brothers & Sisters EP) 7. Spies (Parachutes) 8. Square One (X&Y) 9. Clocks (A Rush of Blood to the Head) 10. Sparks (Parachutes) To add even more excitement to this grand endeavor, I rated the 4 (Mylo Xyloto update pending ...it's going to be slaughtered...) studio albums released by the 'play. Before you get your hopes up, get them up even more! I ended up devising four rating methods: a simple subjective (where I give the album what I feel it deserves out of 10), average (where I take the score of each song on the album, add them all together, divide that my the number of songs on the album, then put that sum over 10), median (where I line up the scores and take the middle one out) and range (where I subtract the lowest score on the album from the highest, with lower being better). Parachutes: My subjective score: 9/10 Ethan's subjective score: 9.25/10 Average score: 8.22/10 Median score: 8.5/10 Range score: 2.75 A Rush of Blood to the Head: My subjective score: 8.25/10 Ethan's subjective score: 8.75/10 Average score: 8.227/10 Median score: 7.625/10 Range score: 2.75 X&Y: My subjective score: 9.25/10 Ethan's subjective score: 8.25/10 Average score: 8.81/10 Median score: 8.25/10 Range score: 2 Viva la Vida or Death And All His Friends: My subjective score: 6.25/10 Ethan's subjective score: 6/10 Average score: 6.3/10 Median score: 6.25/10 Range: 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
