I bought this album when it first came out in the UK and I bought Parachutes as well. I think that Coldplay are fantastic and this arrangement to accompany the album is fantastic - I got the sheet music for 'Parachutes' as well and they are both fantastic BUY THIS BOOK ITS FFAAABBBBB!!!!

Great to be able to play the hits but also this book contains the many album tracks that make this book & CD great!
Even Politik with a bit of practice is playable
A Rush Of Blood To the Head is also an easy playing yet descriptive song that is both enjoyable to play or just to listen to.

It's good for beginners, as they are not too hard to play, but if you are grade 5 or above or the equivalent to, then you will finish the book in about as long as it takes to listen to the album. Still a good buy, though.

Some good songs on this album. Easy to play but I am not sure whether the lyrics contained in it are correct. If so, they're only minor discrepancies. Guitar chords aren't complicated and the notes for the lyrics can really help with singing and attaining the correct notes.

Arrangements légèrement trop "simples" et pas assez complets.
Well, what can I say, one of the best books you'll ever buy, suitable for any person who has basic piano skills and thouroughly enjoyable for the more skilled pianist. Once you have learnt the music in this book you will never forget it. In my opinion, A MUST BUY!!
I found that nine of the eleven tracks were the best of the album and I love the style in which coldplay play their songs. My favourite track is 'God put a smile upon your face.'

An excellent book for any piano player, I myself have taken no gradings and find it very easy and fun to play.
Excellent book, and though I have found some of the pieces a little difficult, practise makes perfect! God Put A Smile Upon My Face is an excellent transcription - of a song which I didn't think would change to piano at all well. In My Place and Amsterdam are superb.

Coldplay are a great example of talent! This book is wonderful- I love listening to the CD and now I can play the songs myself! I really recommend this book-its fantastic!!!!!

This book is a definite must for any Coldplay fan (or in fact anyone who likes very chilled, easy to play piano music). I would definitely recommend it for people beginning to play and sing simultaneously, as the piano parts are fairly repetitive and simple.

Well, it is only their second album, but Coldplay has already shown that they will be remembered as one of the greats. With their songs transcending generations of styles and their almost poignant meaning and messages coming through strongly, this book is well worth owning. It was the best music buy I've ever done (apart from buying their CD of course!).
