The third and long awaited follow-up album to Rush Of Blood To The Head and Parachutes by one of the most successful British bands of all time. Includes the new single Speed Of Sound and 12 other tracks all arranged for Piano Voice and Guitar with Chord Boxes. The thirteen huge songs are typical of Coldplay’s style. Chris Martin’s lyrics evoke pathos, conveying very real emotions and subjects in the manner with which he has made his own. The music shifts from intimate, quiet and personal to soaring climaxes that culminate in massive layered sounds which push back the band's own boundaries.
