Not as good as their two previos albums but there are some great tracks are here. I enjoyed most of them but here are the tracks that stood out: Speed of Sound, Til Kingdom Come, Fix You, and A Message(This is my favorite one, its unbelievable. Its a nice call back to the Parachutes era)

Why does this album get shat on so much? I always thought this was their magnum opus before looking online to see really what people thought. It's such a solid record, it has a really cool alternative space rock sound to it, very dramatic. It's fantastic.

Their last of their classic albums. Then, after Viva la Vida, I just don't get what they are doing. Anyway, a strong album, maybe weaker than their previous but still with some standout songs like "Fix you" and "Talk".

The first half of the album is more of a singles side, and does a poor job setting up expectations for side two. It took a very, VERY long time for me to warm up to the second half—but I'm glad I did!

Square One remans an absolute classic and one of the best songs they've ever written. Low is another favourite of mine, and one of the few songs from this record that still gets better with each listen. Wonderful stuff.

Parachutes is still far and away their best work, but I return to X&Y frequently and consider it one of the "great" Coldplay records. Don't skip it!
