Gush: Coldplay ‘Parachutes’

I was just twelve when Parachutes, a little band called Coldplay put out in 2000. I remember complaining every time the video for “Yellow” came on, which my brother loved, but I found pretty annoying.

Somewhere over the next five years, I developed a fond love for the album from start to finish. It’s a pretty album, dip into it:

Also, a worthy read is Pitchfork writer Spencer Owen’s harsh words on Parachutes, which he gave a just passing grade to. Tough love and to Owen – you are wrong… With the exception of the similarity drawn between the album’s second tune “Shiver” and Jeff Buckley.
