Coldplay – A Rush of Blood To The Head

16 03 2011

Listened: Friday February 11

A Rush of Blood To The Head is one of those albums I couldn’t wait to hear. After Parachutes, which was clearly great, but also clearly only the start of something big, I wanted to know what was next.

Obviously more experimental than Parachutes, Coldplay take more chances sonically (Politik, Whisper, Clocks) while still giving the fans of beautiful ballads their treats (In My Place, The Scientist, Green Eyes). The evolution kind of reminds me of Radiohead, albeit cuddlier (or wimpier depending upon your opinion).

Soundtrack – Run Lola Run

16 03 2011

Listened: Friday February 11

I saw Run Lola Run when I was in college. I remember going to downtown Berkeley several times to see it repeatedly. Part of the infectiousness of the film is rooted in the music, so it only made sense I’d pick up the soundtrack. I wouldn’t say the music is super-high-quality dance music on its own, but as a soundtrack and as a reminder of the film it works very well.
