Coldplay and Radiohead ought not be lumped together.

But really, there was room in music in the late 60s and early 70s for both lyric-based art and spontaneous, ebullient art, just as 50 years ago there was room for both Sun records and hard bop and today there is room for both Kanye West and the Dixie Chicks (and obviously in each of those time periods and every other period, room for a plethora else, besides). There is always room for all of it, and nothing is killing anything. Everything is just dying when it has mostly run its course. No big deal. You can't keep remaking Pet Sounds, or Born to Run, or The Chirpin' Crickets, or Kid A, or Blonde on Blonde, or anything else, without becoming a lifeless pastiche.

Ah, why not? They sound pretty similar to each other! I know, I know...Coldplay ripped off Radiohead's sound... But while RH were noodling around being "serious artists", Coldplay were writing catchy uplifting pop tunes. A Coldplay show also seems like it would be much more fun than an RH show....

Plus, SMiLE '67, even in an unfinished state, is 10000000 times better than OK Computer will ever be!!!

Alright, immature and juvenile anti-Radiohead rant over.

On a more mature note, I pretty much agree with everything Luther just said.

I wouldn't argue the superficial sonic similarities. But it's a bit like lumping Led Zeppelin in with Whitesnake.

Yeah, maybe... but at least the guys in Coldplay don't pretend to be depressed all the time.
