Still a good record with missteps

Imagine the extreme difficulty of playing a game like Guess that Song: X&Y by Coldplay addition. It’s impossible to separate one atmospheric song from the other twelve.

Best tracks: “Square One;” “Speed of Sound;” “Low”
Worst tracks: “Fix You;” “+”

This was my first Coldplay album so its pretty nostalgic to me. It's not their best effort, but still a very solid album.

Favorite Tracks: Square One, What If?, Fix You, Talk, X&Y, Speed of Sound, Swallowed In the Sea

Thought it was a masterpiece...when I was 13. Still good though.

This is the best Coldplay album by quite a bit. Chris Martin's voice is still a bit of a liability, but it's decent enough for the tracks on this record. After two pretty straight forward rock albums, X & Y brought some electronic instrumentation to the table. It certainly pays off in the album's more ethereal moments. Fix You is one the defining songs of that decade, and the rest of the album doesn't lag far behind.
