When Coldplay first happened.

19 years ago.

In 2000.

I really liked them.


Yet with the passing of time.

I was unsure if I really liked Coldplay ‘back then’ simply because they were new.

And I was unsure if I grew to like them less because they became popular.

(This is quite typical of course).

But, these days, there is no uncertainty in my mind.

I am sure why I liked them in the beginning.

It’s because Parachutes is the best album they ever did.


Parachutes is the album that Chris Martin sings best on.

These are the songs that his voice was born for.

The songs are simple.

And bare.

And beautiful.
