"A Rush of Blood to the Head" is near pop-rock perfection. This project was mainly created after the September 11th attacks, and it definitely shows, in that everything is 1000x more somber and heartbreaking. Chris Martins voice is on a god level here, the instrumentations on here are amazing as well, with some amazing sounding pianos and violins on here and the songwriting here is masterful, with some amazing lyrics on here, like:
"Stood on the edge
Tied to a noose
And you came along and you cut me loose"
"Running in circles, coming up tails
Coming back as we are"
This project is so fucking emotional and passionate, it makes it almost impossible for me not to bawl at songs like "The Scientist", "Green Eyes" and "Amsterdam". Everything about this album is just incredible and such a step forward from "Parachutes" (even when I did love Parachutes). Only reason this isn't a 10 is because I'm not that big of a fan of "A Whisper", but if that track was cut off, This would 100% be a 10. Beautiful fucking album!
Best Tracks: all except...
