You can try and BS your way out with crappy arguments about how they suck musically but you aren't fooling anybody.
Wow thank you. Also as a musician myself, when you actually play their songs, whether on piano, guitar, drums you really see how talented they are.

The comment I hate most is when people say that Coldplay sounds like everything else when that's not the case, it's actually the reverse, everyone tries to sound like Coldplay. Parachutes and a Rush of Blood were BRILLIANT albums. They got too comfortable with X&Y and was criticized so they changed their style compeletly with viva la vida. As a guitar player myself, the music of that album is so complex with all the effects and layers of arrangements.

I bet Coldplay would be everyone's favorite band if they weren't as big.
