I was able to get this CD today and i must say from what i've had the time to listen to (the first 6 or 7 tracks, roughly) it is another fantastic outing by them crazy Brits. I love Martin's voice and the use of organs, keys, and strings just blows me away and are things I love about Coldplay. The lyrics are the typical coldplay grounds: love, lose, life and whatnot. This is definately a "must have" for the fans. I think my fave tracks right now are "Fix you" and the bonus track entitled, "Til Kingdom come" which is labeled as "+" on my WMP and Jukebox.
Is it as good as "Parachutes" and "Rush of Blood to the Head?" I don't yet know. I love the 'Chutes due to the fact its the debut and it has a lot of great tracks. As for "Blood", i dunno. As far as i'm concerned, all of the tunes these guys put are quality. Go get it!
