so what to say about coldplay? i give them points for:
1. coordinated all-black outfits.
2. self-effacing british charm
3. politics without preachiness
4. manic piano bench-abusing passion
we loved it. this is a freaking phenomenal band. when they play "in my place" during the encore, the emotional liftoff is just about as pure as it gets. don't compare them to anyone but themselves and you won't be disappointed.
